Dr. Cheryl Allen, ND - Vice President

Dr. Cheryl Allen is a Naturopathic doctor. As a woman and a mother of three young children, Cheryl feels a strong connection to the health concerns of women which led her to further training in the areas of perinatal, fertility, hormone and menopause health. Cheryl finds practicing as a naturopathic doctor is extremely rewarding. What she finds most rewarding about naturopathic medicine is honouring the uniqueness of each of her patients. The body constantly strives to be in balance and the symptoms the body presents are clues as to what is out of alignment.
