Healthy Starts Here
Amy Tweedle, Naturopathic Doctor
Meet Dr. Amy
As a licensed Naturopathic Doctor (KS), I am committed to help you improve your quality of health and life. I provide each person my complete attention, while seeking the underlying cause of imbalance. I know that everyone is unique and their characteristics, lifestyle and environment are all taken into account in order to treat the whole person.
After graduating from McMaster University with a BA in Social Sciences, I moved to South Korea to teach English and travel throughout Asia. I was intrigued with Traditional Chinese Medicine, and on my return to Canada, I attended The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. Once I completed my four year doctorate degree, including my one year internship at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic, I opened my own clinic called Naturopathic Roots in Brantford, Ontario. Although I see people of all ages, I have developed a special interest in women's health, especially fertility, pre and post natal care, and children's health.
My commitment is to constantly evaluate new theories, research and approaches in medicine while still respecting the power of traditional natural healing. I am eager to show people how naturopathic medicine can improve their health and wellness. My favorite naturopathic modalities include nutrition, herbal medicine, and homeopathic drainage. I have additional training in Bowen Therapy and Functional Medicine.
I am currently the President of the Indiana Association of Naturopathic Physicians, and the manager of Nourish, Women's Natural Health conference. I am also a member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians and The Naturopathic Medicine Institute.
Why Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic Medicine is primary medical care that integrates modern medical science with traditional natural therapies. Health is restored using therapies from the sciences of clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy, hydrotherapy, Chinese medicine, and physical therapies.
Naturopathic Doctors are required to attend a 4 year post-graduate accredited naturopathic medical school. ND's must then pass a 3 day North American licensing exam to qualify for a license in 1 of the 23 states that regulates naturopathic medicine.
