Dr. Nora Shilo is a former Torontonian who’s always been fascinated with the human body. She graduated from York University with a Bachelor of Science in psychology and went on to study medicine at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. As a naturopathic physician, Dr. Shilo’s goal is to bring her patients to a state of optimal wellness by uncovering the true causes behind their symptoms and using an integrative approach to help her patients function at a higher level. Dr. Shilo’s background in psychology inspires her to explore the mental/emotional factors that often play a role in physical illness or imbalance. Dr. Shilo has a special interest in fertility and reproductive health, and is passionate about helping couples conceive or helping women prime their body for a healthy pregnancy. During your first visit with Dr. Shilo, you can expect to have a thorough conversation about your health concerns, history, health goals, and anything else that may be pertinent to your case. You can also expect a focused physical exam or a requisition for specific tests (blood, urine, saliva) so that Dr. Shilo can get a closer look at your physiology. Treatments may be initiated during the first visit if Dr. Shilo determines their safety and efficacy at this time. During follow-up visits, you may receive treatments such as IV vitamin & nutrient therapy, Bowen therapy, dietary or nutritional counseling, custom herbal formulas, or acupuncture. Dr. Shilo is also licensed to prescribe pharmaceutical drugs when indicated. Dr. Shilo’s ultimate goal is to educate you about wellness and empower you to take the driver’s seat when it comes to your own health. For this reason, Dr. Shilo frequently gives talks and workshops to educate the public about integrative medicine. When she’s not saving lives (through prevention), you may find Dr. Shilo hiking somewhere in BC, at a Canucks game, or strolling along Kits Beach with her handsome dog Lupo.
