I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis during my first year of medical school. I was struggling with exhaustion, poor memory and focus, anxiety, depression, hair loss, acne and psoriasis, and was trying to hold it together to make it through the next 4 years of Naturopathic Medical school. I worked with my family doctor and endocrinologist  to find the right dose and type of medication, but nothing really seemed to get me out of my exhausted brain fog state. I decided to take matters into my own hands and put everything I was learning in school to the test. I changed my diet, reduced my stress, took nutraceuticals to support my thyroid and reduce inflammation, and learned to listen to my body. The results were amazing, and they inspired me to help others finally find relief from their hypothyroid struggles.

I am a licensed Naturopathic Doctor from the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine. I have an Honours Degree in Kinesiology from the University of Western Ontario and additional training in Rehabilitation Therapy for injury recovery, Advanced Obstetrics, Bowen Therapy, Craniosacral Therapy, Reiki, and as a Naturopathic Doula. I have also studied Traditional Herbal Medicine with a Kichwa Shaman in the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest.

As a Naturopathic Doctor, I combine the healing practices of traditional natural therapies with western medical practices to create evidence-based natural treatment plans unique to your needs. Although I welcome everyone into my practice, I have a clinical focus in anxiety, depression, thyroid conditions, injury recovery, fatigue and burnout recovery, and digestive concerns.

I look forward to working with you in optimizing your health and vitality!

Yours in health, 

Dr. Fiona Smulders ND

I’ve seen Dr. Fiona Smulders a few times now for help dealing with my Restless Leg Syndrome. Right away she honed in on low dopamine levels and coached me to weaving more foods high in dopamine into my diet. This dopamine connection was later confirmed by my MD, who I’m also working with on this. At this point my symptoms have almost totally disappeared!

After dealing with a torn rotator cuff in my left shoulder and tendinopathy in my right, I was left unsatisfied with the physiotherapist and chiropractor who I had previously visited. I was recommended to Dr Smulders from a friend. I was apprehensive at first but her acupuncture and soft tissue therapy has been the most effective treatment that I’ve received. My experience has left an overwhelmingly positive response in both my shoulders. Best recommendation I’ve had in years!

I have been seeing Fiona Smulders, ND, for my own health journey, along with my son. She has been very caring, professional, and willing to work with our specific needs. She is so gentle in her approach, yet maintains such a professionalism that you can trust. She is well informed and we have appreciated being one of her patients.
