My Personal Journey Towards Wholeness

Heidi McGill, B.Sc, ND 
Registered Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine

A significant time in my personal health journey took place during my third year of naturopathic college. Physically, my body was breaking down due to the effects of mental and emotional stress. As a result, I made the very difficult but necessary decision to take a year off of college in order to recover my lost sense of health.

During my time away from college I learned more about healing than I could have from my academic studies. Although my naturopathic college career showed that I excelled in the medical sciences and healing arts, nothing could have prepared me more to be a physician of people’s health than my own personal path towards wellness. It changed me profoundly and has made me a different naturopath than I would have been had I not experienced it.

In order to regain my health I received naturopathic treatments and support from allied health care professionals. I discovered first hand how physical health is intimately connected to mental and emotional health. The body-mind relationship became crystal clear to me as I began to see into my own mind and how my thoughts and feelings affected my behaviours and physical body. I not only started to gain a greater depth of insight into my own health but also came to understand more about the general human condition.

The experience prepared me to help many people who struggle with health problems, no matter what the specific details are. At the core, we are all human begins doing the best we can with what we’ve got and I have learned to offer myself and other’s much compassion for this. As a result, I have dedicated myself to the extensive study of the body-mind relationship and naturopathic philosophy, which is the cornerstone of my naturopathic practice today.

Ultimately, I do my best to live in accordance with the principles and practices of naturopathy. I am grateful for my health, strength and vitality because of it. It is my sincere hope and wish to share naturopathy’s wisdom with you in order to bring you better health and wholeness.
