Dr. Deirdre Jasper ND has been amazing throughout this year, and I hope you’ve had the chance to connect with her while I’ve been on leave. If not, I’m more than happy to pick up where we’ve left off and continue to collaborate on your

Birth Announcement – Early Arrival!

After much anticipation of an April due date, my baby decided to arrive 1 month early in March! To my surprise, we had a little girl, Ivy Maude Evea (pronounced Uh-vay-ah). Born in a hurry with an incredible birth, we received difficult news shortly after that she had a congenital diaphragmatic hernia. This condition came as a surprise and meant she needed to be in the NICU and required surgery to repair her diaphrag

Loving New Nature Doctors Location!

It’s been a few months now since I made the move to Nature Doctors from Wolseley Wellness Centre, and it’s going really well!

It’s been such a nice break to be able to show up to work, focus on being a naturopathic doctor, and

Moving my Practice Location

It is with excitement and anticipation I’m announcing a significant change in my Naturopathic practice. Starting November 4th 2015, I will be joining the multifaceted clinic, Nature Doctors!

Cream of Mushroom Soup – Immunity for our Gut!

This week’s theme food for our family has been mushrooms! With the air becoming more brisk, the earthiness of these little bite-size morsels tend to call out to my taste buds. And when I made the declaration earlier this week to my husband, “I’m really into mushrooms lately!”, he knew a health benefit was on the tip of my tongue. And so there was… Edible & medicinal mushrooms have ma

As existing patients, you’ve agreed to receive communication and newsletters by providing your email address.

Vitamin C Supplementation – Are Medical Professionals Against It?

I’ve heard the same news story repeated; “The verdict’s in! Doctors confirm Vitamin C doesn’t help your cold or flu symptoms!” Or, “supplemental vitamin C doesn’t improve your health.” Really?! That’s the breaking news story each cold and flu season? Seriously? Are these docs and health professionals really against Vitamin C? First of all, let’s all crack our biochemistry textbooks open from university again and read

2014 and Your Health Wheel

And I emerge into this New Year after 6 months of being ‘home’ with my baby boy. Happy 2014! After several months of a very different routine than my norm, I’ve been reminded at various times of the availability of health care and information relating to it. We really do have a breadth of access to supports and health care services where we live. From primary care, emergency services (both telephone and walk-in) to v
