She is passionate about nutrition and exercise and is an avid proponent of holistic treatment. This includes implementing attainable lifestyle changes to reduce pain.  Her practice focuses on Platelet Rich Plasma injections (PRP), and Prolotherapy also known as Regenerative Injection Therapy (RIT). In addition, she utilizes deep tissue work, trigger point injections, manipulation, acupuncture and IV therapy as modalities to treat pain.

  • The Candadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND) applauds the federal government for exempting GST/HST on services provided by naturopathic doctors, as announced in the recent federal budget.  "Naturopathic doctors are, indeed, primary healthcare proviers.  They integrate standard, medical diagnostics with a broad range of therapies", said Dr. Pat Wales, ND, Chair of the CAND.  "Having patients pay taxes of essential primary health care services didn't sit well with our members, or our patients, and we are pleased that the Government of Canada agreed".  "Patients want greater health care options, partnerships, and access tools that will empower them to become and remain healthy", added Shawn O'Reilly, Executive Director of the CAND.  "Removing taxes on services provided by naturopathic doctors will not only help remove the barriers to such options for patients, it will help ensure our health care system stimulates the economy for future health care sustainablilty".

  • Be sure to check out the laboratory testing section of our website.   Our doctors have access to a variety of laboratories and testing to assist you in your health care needs. 

  • Healthy, Youthful Skin  Your skin is an organ, so treat it as such!  If your skin is showing signs of aging like lines, wrinkles, puffiness, acne, eczema or dryness, it is asking for help!  Dr. Sara Korsunsky, ND offers Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture treatment programs that rejuvenate skin from the inside out.  In conjunction with a thorough assessment to evaluate hormones and other contributing factors, your skin will restore and glow.

  • Reducing Your Risk For Dementia and Alzheimer's by Lowering Homocysteine Levels  Elevated levels of homocysteine (an amino acid in the blood) may double your risk of developing Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia (The New England Joural of Medicine, Febraury 2002).  Homocysteine levels can be reduced by taking appropriate levels of vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid.  The Doctors at the Centre for Natural Medicine test for homocysteine when evaluating a patient's risk factors.
