Shelly Frank, Naturopathic Doctor

Naturopathic Doctors approach patient care by truly 'listening' to YOU, very carefully. We provide thorough diagnostic investigation including blood work, physical examination and utilize the best natural therapies available to stimulate YOUR innate ability to heal and energize your body, mind and spirit.

I am a passionate, dedicated Naturopathic Doctor that graduated from the University of Calgary with a Bachelor's Degree in Health Sciences many years ago. I then continued my studies at The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto which consisted of a rigorous four year program dedicated to teaching the art and science of Naturopathic Medicine.

After being diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma, a type of lymphatic cancer in university, I felt inspired to find a more holistic gentle, approach to restore my immune system and spirit after enduring two years of chemotherapy and radiation. This difficult life experience ended up being a source of strength and spiritual growth for me and  brought me to this very fulfilling career. After seeing my very first Naturopath in Vancouver, as a 20 year old, I knew I would survive cancer and live a very long, healthy life.

This profession empowered me to use food as medicine, cleanse my body, heal myself with herbs, homeopathy, Chinese medicine, and acupuncture. Naturopathic medicine also taught me that our minds can be used to heal our bodies through positive affirmations, mediation, visualization, gratitude and prayer. It opened up a new world that enchanted me and has become my way of living.

It has been my absolute privilege to pay forward this profound medicine to all of my patients over the past decade in my private practice in Cambridge, Ontario. As many of you know, I stumbled upon a very blessed opportunity to practice out of the Berm House- an energy efficient clinic built into the earth on 22 acres. Yes the ACTUAL ROOF IS GRASS! The atmosphere could not be more fitting to "Vis Medicatrix Naturae" meaning the healing power of nature. This will allow me to provide individual patient care as always BUT provide unique healing workshops designated to infuse positive learning and health into your life in a small group setting. There is so much healing in connecting human beings together in a meaningful way. I am excited! 

I am very pleased to still offer Naturopathic Medicine here in Cambridge on Thursdays at the Loft RMT and Wellness. Joining a team that is so dedicated in an absolutely beautiful location came at the perfect time in my life. I have always believed strongly in creating a warm, nurturing environment that is safe, confidential and dedicated to YOUR HEALTH.
