Dr. Shivaune Wright, Thriving Families Cultivator, Humanitarian, Household Engineer & Naturopathic Doctor

Dr. Wright is a licensed Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, registered with the College of Naturopaths of Ontario. She holds a Bachelor of Naturopathy from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, a rigorous 4-year full-time program, as well as an Honours Bachelor of Arts Degree in Kinesiology and Physical Education from Wilfrid Laurier University

Her passion for health, fitness and the human body led her to pursue a kinesiology degree and career in personal training. After five years in this field and a burning passion to take people further in their health and fitness journeys, she was introduced to naturopathic medicine, and shortly thereafter knew this was her calling. 

Dr. Wright, ND uses naturopathic and functional medicine as a unique system of health care blending traditional therapies with modern-day science. A large majority of therapies that Dr. Wright, ND utilizes in practice are evidence-based, with the remainder of therapies being founded on clinically sound results. Dr. Wright, ND's approach to health concerns and goals is two-tiered, whereby it a) takes into account each patient's physical, mental, emotional, social and financial needs, and is b) results-focused. The goal is to treat you as the unique and amazing individual that you are, and to help you feel better quickly, while addressing the underlying cause of your health disturbance. 

When she’s not furthering her knowledge of Naturopathic Medicine through courses and workshops, and working with patients in the clinic, Dr. Wright, ND can be found raising her three(!) young boys, experimenting in the kitchen, with dirty hands in the garden, traveling, biking, doing yoga, lifting weights and reading. She lives with her partner and their three children in the Upper Beach area of Toronto.
