Dr. Kennedy            

Liscensed Naturopathic Doctor (ND), BSc, MBA, PhD

 

Dr. Kennedy, ND understands the power of naturopathic medicine both from a professional and personal perspective. She has always worked with a naturopathic doctor for her own health concerns and, in her professional role, she works with people to improve their health and feel their best.

She has a special interest in helping people resolve their anxiety, depression and/or gastrointestinal issues (heartburn, food sensitivities, diarrhea, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, and the like). However, she helps a wide range of individuals, from toddlers to seniors, with an extensive range of health concerns.

Dr. Kennedy believes naturopathic medicine is not about covering up symptoms but is a discipline that can be used to help uncover the cause. The body knows how to heal itself, especially when it is given what it needs. Finding the right approach will allow the body to move into balance and assist in resolving the symptoms.

But no two people are identical. Each person is unique and so are their needs. This is true both in illness and in health, so Dr. Kennedy, ND tailors a personalized treatment plan for each individual.

Her approach is to take time to listen, ask questions and understand what is going on in your world, not only in your physical body but also with your emotional self.

.

 

 

 

She will do a complete physical examination and, if appropriate, additional laboratory testing to further investigate any imbalances and provide additional insights. Once she has all the information from your interview, examination and test results, she will develop a treatment plan specifically tailored for you.

Your treatment plan can incorporate botanical medicine (the use of plants that have healing properties), nutrition and diet modification, supplements/nutraceuticals (vitamins, minerals, etc), homeopathy, acupuncture and hydrotherapy.

Dr. Kennedy, ND qualified at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine and also holds a PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences from the University of Toronto. She has advanced training in environmental medicine, how genetics can influence our health, children’s mental health and treatment strategies, and advanced herbal medicines. She has also completed physician training in Lyme Disease.

Her experience also includes clinical research with Sickkids Motherisk and the naturopathic college and she uses that knowledge to ensure her treatment approach is evidence informed and directed towards those approaches that work best in practice.

When approaching treatment Jim takes a client-centered approach.

Techniques offered by Jim are both direct and indirect - he addresses the pain, as well as the structures and systems causing the pain.

Jim’s treatment modalities are particularly tuned to people with a sensitive nature and he treats people fully clothed (i.e. shorts and a t-shirt / yoga clothes / or religiously appropriate garments at the client’s discretion).

After graduating University, Stanislav immigrated to Israel and was part of the National Judo teams. With a 5 dan in Judo, he competed at National and European championships in Judo.

His first experience in Osteopathy was under the supervision of a famous professor named Om Kogan in 1991.

 

 

 

Professor Kogan had worked with Russian cosmonauts and had been responsible for their rehabilitation after space flights. Stanislav was strongly encouraged by Kogan to pursue further studies in Osteopathy. The following year Stanislav attended the “University of Traditional Medicine” and “Association of Manual Medicine” in Israel. Seeing the exceptional knowledge base and holistic approach these fields of study offered, he never looked back. The skills he learned in both courses have provided him with a very good breadth of knowledge when treating people. Always looking to learn more, Stanislav went on to study in Canada at the "Southern Ontario College of Osteopathy” and graduated with a Diploma of Osteopathy. He also studied at The Canadian College Holistic Health and graduated with a Diploma of Acupuncture practitioner.  Stanislav began his practice in Canada in 2009 and has a passion for bringing quick results to clients in all walks of life.
