Meet Dr. Rachel Fobert
My process to building treatment plans
As an evidence-based naturopathic doctor, I take a systematic approach to treatment that is easy to understand and implement. This means I take the information shared during our initial appointment to consciously create a comprehensive treatment plan specific to your needs.
Treatment is rooted in the fundamentals of naturopathic medicine by targeting the underlying cause of your symptoms, allowing you to work towards sustainable long lasting health.
Mutual respect and communication goes a long way. In our visits there will be open, honest discussions on what is optimal and what is possible that works within your lifestyle. This ensures you see results without sacrificing your goals outside of wellness.
I graduated from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Ontario and am now a board-certified Naturopath Doctor in good standing with the College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO).
Prior to this degree I graduated from University of Ottawa with a BSc in biopharmaceutical science and a focus in genomics.
In addition I am a member of:
- Ontario Association of Naturopath Doctors (OAND)
- Canadian Association of Naturopath Doctors (CAND)
- Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM)
My current educational pursuit is in functional medicine at the Institute for Functional Medicine.
What can be expected from a Naturopathic visit
We are a team with a mutual goal, your goal. To create successful teamwork there are aspects to a Naturopathic visit that will always hold true.
1. A space free of judgment.
2. Transparent communication.
3. Education surrounding root cause and treatment approach.
An initial visit at 75-90 minutes long first includes an in depth line of questioning with the goal of understanding your symptoms, and how they are impacting your quality of life. This will include an overview of recent blood work if provided, what has been tried in the past, pharmaceuticals and natural health products. First steps in your treatment plan will be provided during the first visit, any further assessments required will be ordered in this visit. Information collected in the initial visit will be applied to create an evidence based treatment plan specific to you and your concerns.
