ABOUT ME

From an early age, I have had a strong desire to help others and be a part of the healthcare profession. That desire was strengthened while studying health science and biology at Dalhousie University, where I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree. After discovering Naturopathic Medicine and realizing that health is so much more than the absence of disease, but an ability to adapt and thrive, I went on to obtain my Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine degree from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona. Extensive training and hands on experience with patients has provided me with the ability to offer optimal naturopathic medical care. I see the growing need in Nova Scotia for additional healthcare options and believe that every patient should have access to quality, as well as individualized health care, that puts them first. I treat every patient uniquely in order to optimize their health.


Dr. Leigh Fisher is a professional member in good standing of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND) and the Nova Scotia Association of Naturopathic Doctors (NSAND). She is also a non-practicing member in good standing of the College of Naturopathic Doctors of Alberta (CNDA).

 

WHAT IS NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE

Naturopathic medicine is a unique primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. It is based on the body’s ability to heal itself through the support and stimulation of natural therapies including botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture, lifestyle counseling and health promotion and disease prevention.


Naturopathic medicine treats all forms of health concerns — from pediatric to geriatric, from irritating symptoms to chronic illness and from the physical to the psychological. Common conditions naturopathic doctors can address are:

  • Digestive complaints, including GERD, constipation, food allergies

  • Hormone imbalance, including acne, menopause, infertility, menstrual complaints

  • Stress, anxiety and depression

  • Fatigue and low energy

  • Weight loss, diet and nutrition counseling

  • Cardiovascular diseases, including high blood pressure and high cholesterol

  • Allergies, asthma, type 2 diabetes

  • Acute conditions such as colds and flu, yeast infections, UTI’s and more!
