Hey fellow Montreal mamas! I'm looking for recommendations for a naturopath who speaks English. I'm having some weird symptoms and have undergone some testing and am waiting for an MRI, and I'd like some input from a naturopath. I can speak French, but for health issues I prefer to communicate in English (esp since my French speaking and comprehension deteriorate when I'm dealing with stressful things). If you have a naturopath who you love and trust please let me know!

Thanks! I got your PM and will be calling her on Monday. I liked what I read on her website.

Hi,

I would go with someone who has training from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Ontario, since it has more stringent requirements than naturopaths here in Quebec.

I found this doctor, and she looks promising:

Good luck

One more to add:

http://www.corpusdiem.ca/newsite/eng....php?section=1

The CCNM, where both these people have graduated, is the only accredited 4-yr program for naturopathy in all of Canada. They need at minimum a bachelor's degree just to be considered for admission, and there is a licensing exam at the end, just like for medical doctors. Quebec does not regulate naturopaths. Acupuncturists in Quebec have their own self-governing body, but not naturopaths.

Here's to your wellness!
