Well, hello there!
I’m Dr. Tonia Winchester, a Naturopathic Physician practicing in Nanaimo in the Cilare District of Departure Bay.
I'm also a BodyTalk practitioner, acupuncturist, writer and edutainer.
Ultimately, all of my work is about reducing pain and suffering and bringing more love, joy, and health into the world.
I help busy, super-people make time for what is important by teaching them how to look after themselves.
And if there is one thing I’m really good at it’s helping people identify and articulate the real issues behind their health problems.
I believe that I can help you achieve optimal wellness in your life. Our bodies are designed to heal, if given the right circumstances. My job is to help you find those circumstances.
I’m excited that you are here, exploring your options to improve your health so you can be your best, healthiest you.
In case you're wondering, I'm a general pratitioner but have particular experience and success working with:
- skin issues (eczema, acne, psoriasis, fungal infections)
- digestive problems (IBS, inflammatory bowel disease, Cronh's, ulcerative colitis, heart burn, ulcers, constipation, diarrhea)
- reproductive and hormonal imbalances (painful periods, menopause, PCOS, endometriosis, infertility, thyroid and adrenal issues)
- anxiety, depression, and stress
- weight loss
Most importantly, I have experience working with people.
Everyone I see is an individual, and each has his or her own fascinating story.
As a primary care physician, I am here to create safe, therapeutic spaces in which you can feel comfortable to be yourself. Together we can get to the root cause of your health concerns. I am passionate about combining both Nature’s ancient wisdom and modern science to inspire action that propels us forward towards optimal wellness.
My goal is to help you feel better so you can get back to the things you love, and to help you live a more healthful life so you can do what you love for as long as possible.
I value the importance of education in empowering people to make the best choices for their health. I focus my treatments on dietary and lifestyle changes, and also suggest herbs, nutritional supplements, acupuncture, and homeopathy to give your body the support it needs to bring itself back into its natural, healthy state. I love working at a deep level as a Certified BodyTalk Practitioner (CBP). The clinic has a full professional-grade, hypoallergenic dispensary and there is free parking available.
I look forward to working with you on your journey towards true health and wellness.
To your healthy, thriving, delightful life,
Dr. Tonia Winchester, ND
