  • Dr. Barbara Weiss, BBA, ND

    Dr. Barbara Weiss has over nine years of practice as a licensed Naturopathic Doctor and twelve years as a Certified Bowen Therapist.   Barbara’s approach is individualized to the patient and utilizes a functional medicine approach, meaning she looks for underlying causes of illness using a systems oriented approach.  Instead of treating the “disease”, she treats the person and looks to understand the role of genetics, lifestyle and environmental factors and how they contribute to long-term health.   Physical examinations and laboratory testing are a regular part of the diagnostic tools used to assess function.  She uses a variety of therapies such as dietary recommendations, nutrients, herbal medicine, lifestyle changes, acupuncture, homeopathy and Bowen therapy to restore function.   Barbara has completed additional certificate training in Environmental Medicine with Dr. Walter Crinnion ND, Botanical Medicine, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture and Mindfulness Based Meditation.  She currently serves as Chair of The Board of Governors for the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients?

Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
