Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct primary health care system that incorporates the art and science of traditional and natural forms of medicine with modern scientific knowledge. The practice of naturopathic medicine involves disease diagnosis as well as treatment and prevention using natural therapies that include botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, naturopathic manipulation, traditional Chinese medicine / acupuncture and lifestyle counseling. A Naturopathic Doctor is a primary care practitioner distinguished by their practicing philosophy, which seeks to restore and maintain optimum health by emphasizing nature’s inherent self-healing process. A naturopathic doctor views the individual from a wholistic perspective, incorporating the physiological, structural, psychological, social, spiritual, environment and lifestyle factors affecting the patient. Naturopathic medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than disease as an entity. The primary goal is to treat the underlying cause of the disease by selecting treatments that are unique to the individual and not simply the symptoms. This approach has proven successful in treating both chronic and acute conditions. In Ontario, licensed Naturopathic Doctors have at least 7 years of post-secondary education, must graduate from an accredited educational institution, receive their professional licensing from the Board of Directors of Drugless Therapy-Naturopathy (BDDT-N) as well as complete and pass international licensing exams (NPLEX). Naturopathic Doctors in Ontario have recently become regulated under the Regulated Health Practitioners Act (RHPA) alongside medical doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and most other health-care providers in the province.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine

Chinese Medicine is an evidence based medicine and is the oldest continuously practiced medicine in the world, dating back to the First Century BCE. TCM's understanding of the body is focused on the functional entities of the body and their ability to work harmoniously when the body is in a balanced and healthy state, or their disfunction when there is disease or health conditions. TCM seeks to use presenting signs and symptoms to find the pattern of disease and therefore treat the root cause. This diagnostic method is rooted in TCM's idea that in order to understand a person's health, you must study the functional aspects, rather than the structures themselves. Treatment therapies in TCM include Acupuncture, Diet and Lifestyle counselling, Cupping, Massage, Herbal Medicine, exercises (Tai Chi/Qi Gong), as well as many other auxiliary techniques.

Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most common and dependable medical therapies used in the world. It is by nature simple, safe and effective health care. Acupuncture practitioners use thin, sterile disposable needles inserted superficially into specific areas of the body in order to help the body's ability to heal itself.

Over the three decades or so in which acupuncture has gained popularity in the North America, it has been proven by an increasing body of scientific evidence to be not only exceptionally safe, but statistically effective as well.

The World Health Organization lists 28 diseases, symptoms or conditions for which acupuncture has been proved – through controlled trials—to be an effective treatment. It further lists 63 conditions where acupuncture has been shown to be affective, but further study is needed.

TCM and Acupuncture are a Regulated Health Profession in Ontario. In order to practice TCM and Acupuncture a practitioner must be a member of the CTCMPAO.

Dr. Tabrizi is a chiropractor, osteopath and a passionate member of both the local and scientific community, whose goal is to teach that the pursuit of optimal health and wellness is much more than being symptom-free. His practice is rooted in the philosophy of treating the person rather than just treating the illness or ailment. Dr. Tabrizi completed his undergraduate studies at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, B.C., obtaining a Bachelors degree in Psychology with a focus on cognitive neuropsychology. He later went on to obtain his Doctor of Chiropractic from Logan Chiropractic College in St. Louis, Missouri, after which he completed studies in osteopathy. As a result of his interdisciplinary training, Dr. Tabrizi has developed a neuroscience-based therapeutic education approach to treating his patients, focusing on healing illness from a wider perspective, placing equal responsibility on patient as well as practitioner. Dr. Tabrizi aims to educate his patients and provide them with the tools and framework needed to integrate pain management and healthy living into the fabric of their everyday lives. His continued commitment to expanding his clinical range has led to the creation of following principles of care: Know thy brain Chase your dreams but respect your body Know what fuels your identity and experience Preconception is the death of discovery Information consumes attention and corrupts experience Don’t always add without subtracting Resist conformity and transcend your origin Create a self-concept based on freedom from doubt Our worst fears lie in anticipation Build prevention fences Strive for improvements, not perfection Avoid avoidance Dr. Tabrizi’s clinical philosophy is shaped by his extensive travels to Central and South Asia, Europe and the Gulf States as well as his personal experiences. As a clinician, Dr. Tabrizi continues to be driven by the adage: ‘my treatment is not a temporary bandage for a scarring wound.’ Are you ready to reclaim what it really means to be healthy and excel in all phases of your life?

I believe your success story starts with great health.

I understand that you are on a mission, leading an industry, defining a culture, and making our world a better place. You have goals for your life that include success, freedom, creativity and adventure. You are giving “your all” to realize your goals and your health is your greatest resource for achieving them.

Health is not the price you need to pay for your success. You can “lean in” to your work without sacrificing your well-being.

I am your smart medicine strategist. I operate from a medical system that values function and performance. A system that is not limited when “test results are normal” but you are still suffering. A system that asks bigger questions about your personal vision for your health and does not assume your level of commitment.

I won’t tell you to quit your job or ask you to cook every meal from scratch, but I will help you to get real about aligning your health goals with your life goals. Abundant energy, amazing relationships, and big life adventures are the fuel that will help you leave your mark on the world without leaving your health behind.

My clinical practice is centered on the concept of immuno-metabolism. I fight fatigue, inflammation and belly fat to help you to build optimal hormonal balance and focused brain power. I focus on integrative medicine and advanced training in environmental and functional medicine. I am a graduate of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine and Western University.

For the past 12 years, I have been the owner and clinic director of one of Toronto’s leading integrative health clinics, the Integrative Health Institute.

PLEASE NOTE: Samantha is a Registered Psychotherapist (differs from our masters of social work counsellors). It is truly exciting to witness and help guide people through transformative times according to what matters for that individual. I have enjoyed over 23 years of direct clinical experience in interdisciplinary settings assisting clients with restoring function and returning to a life within their value systems. Registered with CRPO since 2016, I have a passion for communication, empowerment and awareness in my practice. I have extensive experience within the CBT, ACT, DBT and functional based problem solving paradigms. I also have formal training in Kinesiology and Yoga. The blend of both movement and stillness as healing tools is something else that I am passionate about teaching to my clients. After all, we cannot neatly separate the body from the brain and everything else that makes us us. Because of this, I believe that an individualized, integrative approach to mental health yields the best results. Since there is no growth in our comfort zones, the change inherent in healing can be extremely uncomfortable and even prohibitive. The assistance provided through psychotherapy and life coaching can add much comfort and efficacy to this journey.
