Elly Jenkyns, BSc, ND
I obtained my Bachelor of Science from Brock University in 1997, combining a degree in Biology and Psychology. I then went on to complete the 4-year, full-time program at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2002. I’m a licensed, regulated Naturopathic Doctor and a proud member of the College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO), the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (OAND) and the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND). In 2009 I completed post-graduate certification courses with the OAND in Environmental Medicine and Mind-Body Medicine. In 2017 I updated my Environmental Medicine education, as the research in this field continually grows.
My passion is empowering patients to take responsibility for their own health with a focus on education and prevention. I regularly attend continuing education and professional development workshops. I’m committed to on-going research and learning in order to meet the variety of needs of all of my patients. My area of focus is Environmental Medicine and Detoxification, immune function, stress management and hormone balance. I have a special interest in helping my patients assess their toxicity, and medical detoxification protocols to help them reduce it.
As a mom, I have a special interest in healthy family dynamics. I know firsthand the challenges of achieving balance in the home, and its importance for our health and happiness.
I work in collaboration with other regulated health care professionals to ensure that my patients receive the most comprehensive and effective care possible.
