Stefanie Trowell B.Sc. (Hons.) ND

Naturopathic Doctor
Women's Health & Fertility Expert

Stefanie is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor in the College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO).

As a Naturopathic Doctor, I love to incorporate traditional methods with the best available evidence to enhance each patient’s health and deliver the highest quality of care. I act as a bridge between the conventional medical team and alternative medicine - helping you navigate the system, while enhancing your care to achieve your best level of wellbeing possible. I am passionate about optimizing health and managing chronic disease, with a special interest in women’s health, fertility and breast cancer. Since these two conditions have touched the lives of loved ones, I have a very personal understanding of the challenges and struggles involved. My individualized approach addresses the specific needs of my patients as I work closely with them to achieve their health goals.

After graduating from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, I was accepted into the competitive Clinical Residency program, which placed me back in the heart of evidence-based medicine and research. My research into adjunctive breast cancer care was selected for presentation at the 2015 CAND – Health Fusion Conference in Calgary, Alberta, which was an exciting experience for me. I have been able to continue my work at the College by lecturing on “Clinical Pathologies of the Breast” and supervising interns in the teaching clinic. I also get to work alongside Jasmine and Ellice at the College teaching acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Prior to moving to Toronto, I graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a High Honours Bachelors of Science in Physiology. I was involved in innovative research in neuroscience, endocrinology and reproduction. I also received highest academic achievement in Physiology from St.Thomas Moore College, University of Saskatchewan. I now focus my problem-solving skills on the complexity of hormonal health in women – a key component in managing women’s health, fertility and breast cancer. I have been described as a dedicated and caring doctor who is committed to the wellbeing of her patients, and I take great pride in this.

Outside the office, you are likely to find me walking outdoors with a book tucked under my arm, listening to a podcast (I’m an addict) and paint splashes on my fingers. I love tinkering in my potted garden and doing crafts – an homage to my country girl roots! I hope that by sharing my light-hearted and caring nature with my patients that it inspires them to create a more balanced, healthy lifestyle for themselves.
