About Dr. Clarence
It wasn’t until my family was thrown into the world of cancer diagnoses and treatments that I found exactly where my passion for care was rooted.
Co-Founder, Naturopathic Doctor
Before I finished undergraduate studies I knew I would pursue naturopathic medicine, but it wasn’t until my family was thrown into the world of cancer diagnoses and treatments that I found exactly where my passion for care was rooted.
After completing a Bachelor of Kinesiology I moved to Toronto to pursue my Doctor of Naturopathy degree from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. As an intern, I was one of a select few chosen to work on the Adjunctive Cancer Care shift, where I had the opportunity to work exclusively with patients affected by cancer and shadow Oncologists practicing in Sunnybrook’s Breast Cancer Centre.
I am passionate about supporting patients who have been affected by cancer, whether you are in the midst of an active diagnosis, have a strong family history of cancer, or you previously had cancer and want to ensure your ongoing care is mindful of this. Whether preparing to enter treatment, undergoing conventional care, or in recovery, I follow the best available evidence to formulate a safe care plan unique to each patient’s needs and goals.
While a significant part of my practice is focused on supporting patients who have been affected by cancer, I have a special interest in supporting people who are struggling with chronic digestive problems, inflammatory disease, and immune system compromise. I know how overwhelming it can be to to face complicated health challenges. Which is why I approach every patient case with evidence-based care, tailored to their unique needs and health risks. I often emphasize the importance of lab tests to help fully uncover the underlying cause of a patient’s health concerns and guide us to a more targeted treatment plan that addresses both their short and long term health goals.
I am a strong advocate for conventional care, recognizing that when possible, naturopathic medicine functions best alongside medical treatment. My door is open to anyone looking for a Naturopathic Doctor who will see beyond a diagnosis to develop a clear understanding of their needs and goals. I am driven by a desire to empower people with knowledge instead of leaving them feeling uncertain and confused.
