NATUROPATHIC DOCTOR - NATUROPATHIC PRACTITIONER & TREATMENT IN MUSKOKA
Hi, I'm Michelle Jackson, ND, born and raised in Lindsay, Ontario. I graduated from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in May 2017. During my internship at CCNM, I was on the Fibromyalgia/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis focus shift which taught me a lot about treating chronic pain and fatigue.
You could say I've had a unique journey to naturopathic medicine since both of my parents are medical doctors, and as a matter-of-fact, both of my grandfathers were too! I've always dreamt of following in their foot steps and becoming a doctor one day too, so I first graduated with a Medical Sciences degree from the University of Western Ontario. It wasn’t until I was about to apply to medical schools (yes, I even wrote the gruelling MCAT) that I discovered Naturopathic Medicine and fell in love with its approach to healthcare.
I love Naturopathic Medicine because it provides such a comprehensive approach to health. It considers many factors that are often overlooked (like nutrition, sleep quality, hormonal health, etc.) and treatments are gentle, yet effective. I think it does a great job filling in some of the gaps of our healthcare system, however, I'm aware of its limitations and work collaboratively with all my patients' health care providers.
