Naturally Focused evidence informed healthcare

Find the root cause, feel better now.

Looking past the symptoms

An integrative approach to diagnosis. My aim is to treat the root cause of illness while managing associated symptoms.

Covered by Most Health Insurance Plans

Most insurance plans will cover you for some or all of your Naturopathic visits. If you have questions, please contact your plan administrator to find out how much your plan covers and how to submit claims.

Tailored Treatments

No two patients are alike, and therefore no two treatments are alike. I strive to tailor a treatment plan specific to your health and wellness goals.

Naturopathic Services

As a Naturopathic Doctor, I recognize that health and healing are unique to each person. Therefore I use a wide range of diagnostics and recommend naturopathic treatments that are highly individualized. My goal is to treat the underlying cause of disease and create a comprehensive treatment plan to help you reach your health goals and empower you to live your most vibrant life.

Clinical Nutrition

Nutrition is the foundation of a healthy lifestyle. Together we review your current dietary intake and correct nutritional deficiencies, optimize your nutrient levels, and identify food sensitivities. Any assessed nutrient deficiencies are fixed with good quality supplements and guidance on specialized diets.

Functional Lab Testing

Why guess when you can assess? Appropriate tests will help us understand your individual physiology and to uncover the true cause of your health concerns. Various testing is available through blood, saliva or urine.

Botanical Medicine

Naturopathic Doctors are professionally trained to know the historical uses of plants and the modern pharmacological mechanisms and interactions with plant constituents. A naturopathic prescription will usually include whole plants or plant constituents in the form of herbal tinctures, extracts, teas, and capsules.

Acupuncture

The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes 55 medical conditions that are effectively treated using acupuncture, a modality that has 2000 years of traditional use behind it. A recent study in the Archives of Internal Medicine concluded that individuals with back pain that were treated with acupuncture had lasting relief in contrast to patients receiving medications and other medical treatments.

Targeted Supplements

While the diet is our foundation, there are times in our lives where we require more than what we can get from our food.

Vitamins, minerals and other nutrients may be prescribed to treat specific conditions, to reverse deficiencies and to support the body during times of higher demand.

Holistic Care

I work alongside other healthcare providers so you are receiving the most holistic, integrative care possible. The treatments I prescribe will be carefully researched so that they are not interacting with your current medications and regimens.

SCHEDULE A COMPLIMENTARY 15 MINUTE DISCOVERY SESSION

We will chat about your needs, what I offer, and whether naturopathic medicine is right for you. This consult can be conducted in person or by telephone for your convenience.

About Dr. Diana

Dr. Diana Semjonov, Naturopathic Doctor

As a licensed naturopathic doctor, I work with you to identify and treat the root of the problem, not just the symptoms; to understand your concerns and connect the dots of your story. I then provide you with an individualized treatment plan that addresses what we discover together and remove whatever is blocking you from feeling your best. I use therapies such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, individualized nutrition, orthomolecular medicine and supplementation, classical homeopathy, hydrotherapy, and lifestyle counselling.

I am there to support your healing process every step of the way. My recommendations are meant to complement, not replace conventional medicine while supporting the body back to health. My approach addresses the whole person and treatment is designed to be effective yet gentle, while avoiding any contraindications with other treatments of conventional drugs you may be taking.

When it comes to your health, you have options in choosing natural therapies and I believe it is important for you to make educated decisions.  If you would like to explore how I can help, please consider booking a consultation with me.

  • Thyroid conditions
  • PCOS, PMS, menstrual disorders
  • Infertility
  • Autoimmune disease

My mission:

  • To provide health care that empowers through education and encouragement.
  • To bridge the gap between modern medicine and the wisdom to traditional medicine.
  • To work with other health care practitioners to move your health into a safer, more compassionate and comprehensive plan.
  • To be an innovator by using up-to-date research.
  • To advocate for health promotion and education to help individuals enjoy the value of a lifetime of proactive wellness.

My training:

My training includes a four-year Doctor of Naturopathy medical degree from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto after completing an engineering degree from the University of Toronto. 

After more than 3000 hours of classroom study, I completed a medical internship at the Robert Shad Naturopathic Clinic (RSNC), an outpatient teaching hospital associated with the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) as well as an internship at Sherbourne Health Center in Toronto. The Sherbourne health center is a community-based clinic providing care to people living with HIV and AIDS. 

As a clinical intern, I spent 1200 clinical hours and treated more 270 patients for common health concerns including digestive issues, heart disease, gynecological and female problems (fibroids, cervical cancer, endometriosis, PMS), mental health, complications of HIV and chronic autoimmune conditions. I have completed special training in Homeopathy in India under the world renowned Dr. Rajan Sankaran and also hold advanced certification in Functional and Personalized Hormone Restoration Therapy. I continually advance my education to bring the latest in research and technology to my patients.

To be licensed and practice, I have written 2 nationwide licensing medical exams NPLEX I & II (Naturopathic Physicians Licensing Examinations).

Currently licensed in Ontario and in good standing under the regulatory body of The College of Naturopaths of Ontario.

When not in clinic:

You may find me formulating skin care, in the kitchen trying new healthy recipes, doing yoga, and reading up on health!
