I am so incredibly appreciative of Dr. Fiona Smulders! She is detailed, brilliant, and incredibly kind. I had the classic symptoms of IBS and had been feeling awful with no answers. Fiona guided me through a healing plan and since seeing her I have learned so much on how to manage and heal my gut. After appointments with Fiona my worries are always put to ease and I am comforted by her confidence in finding solutions. Her ability to ask pertinent thoughtful questions complimemted by her ability to explain the science and research behind everything makes working with her a joy! In addition to her knowledge of medicine she wonderfully integrates kinesiology into the mix. Her bucket of skills really does allow her to take an integrated approach to healing and health. If you are looking for an ND look no further! Thank you Fiona for all you do! - Megan B.

“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!” - Oliver Giving

“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!” - AO

“I work as an arborist, and having a healthy body is so important for my career. Dr. Fiona Smulders has helped me recover from two injuries now and continues to help me maintain my health, so I can enjoy my work and life. I highly recommend Local health Integrative Clinic.” - TB

“I have seen several practitioners at Local (previously Catalyst) . I have never had a bad experience. This year i started seeing Fiona Smulders when my previous Natropath moved to the Island. I was slightly nervous as my old ND had seen me through quite a lot, however I am more than happy with Fiona. Her background in Kinesiology, combined with her extensive knowledge of Natropathic medicine have resulted in significant relief from both digestive and back issues. She sees the “big picture” and makes connections that most conventional medicine misses. Could not recommend her enough.” - LK
