Meet Dr Alexandra Sisam ND (Naturopathic Doctor)
I am so excited to be joining the team at Arc of Life. Naturopathic Medicine is such a wonderful addition to the holistic chiropractic care that Dr. Pauline and Dr. Brent provide. Over the years I have learned first hand the incredible benefits that Naturopathic Medicine can have on both mental and physical health. I never planned on becoming a Naturopathic Doctor I actually wanted to be a sportscaster on television, but it was a special person who changed this for me. During my undergraduate degree studying Film and Media I took a year off. In this time I was recommended to see a Naturopathic Doctor.
This Naturopathic Doctor changed my life.
She was kind, compassionate and understanding of all the things going on with me that I couldn’t understand. Her multifaceted approach to treating mental, physical and spiritual help was inspiring to me. For the first time in my life I felt understood and hopeful that our bodies actually can make sense. From then on all I wanted to be able to do was to provide the same support to other people as she provided to me. I went back to school changing to a science degree and went on to complete my postgraduate degree in Naturopathic Medicine.
It was never my intention to become a doctor...
While it was never my intention to become a doctor I could not see myself in any other role. I love the way that my medical training has provided me a whole toolbox of ways to approach ones health and well being. More than anything I am so glad to be able to support each and every person that walks through the door. Life can be challenging; health can be challenging and having a safe place to go amidst the chaos either inside or outside of your body is incredibly important. My goal is to provide that safe place for each and every person that walks through my door.
