Dr. Heather Bohez, B.Sc., N.D.
Dr. Bohez, is an experienced Naturopathic Doctor committed to offering proven and leading integrative medical care. As a member of the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors and Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors, she brings an effective combination of compassion, credibility, and care to her patients. Dr. Bohez is committed to helping people address the root cause of their symptoms, achieve optimal health and enhance their quality of living.
With demonstrated excellence in integrative family medicine, botanical/herbal medicine, nutrition, acupuncture, body work, homeopathy and lifestyle counseling, she treats women, men, and children of all ages with diverse health conditions. She incorporates the ideal combination of treatment options for tailored suitability.
Dr. Bohez has been fortunate to receive training and mentorship from three of Canada’s leading elder Naturopathic Doctors, Dr. Karen Jensen, N.D., Dr. Patricia Wales, D.C., N.D., and Dr. Mark Percival, D.C., N.D. Heather remains committed to lifelong learning and actively pursues the latest research through workshops, study programs, conferences and journals. Her transformation into a sought after Naturopathic Doctor also offers an inspiring, personal story. A traditional healer and coach at heart, her personal health struggle, unrelenting curiosity and extensive support system enabled her transformation and now allow her to bring both her experience and wisdom to help others heal and achieve optimal health.
Dr. Bohez recognizes and values the need for medical, naturopathic, and chiropractic doctors, along with other highly trained health professionals to work together. Having been born with a genetic ear defect she experienced intimately hospitals and medical doctors at a very young age. Grateful for the conventional care received from Ear Nose and Throat specialists, she also benefitted tremendously from alternative approaches that enabled her to achieve lifelong health. This started with the basics – a strong family foundation including her Mom’s home cooked meals and Dad’s incorporation of alternative health care practices such as professional brand supplementation, and quality care from naturopaths, chiropractors and other highly trained health care professionals.
Throughout her youth Dr. Bohez’s drive to excel was channeled into basketball. As an elite athlete she played for several Alberta provincial teams, with the University of Victoria under the guidance of Canada’s renowned Kathy Shields, plus stints with Canada’s junior and senior national teams. She graduated from UVIC with a Bachelor of Science degree majoring in Psychology before achieving her Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine Diploma in 2000.
Dr. Bohez cherishes her family and draws upon the energy and inspiration from her husband and two sons while remaining committed to improving herself and bringing out the best in others. Being able to create a long standing practice and helping patients heal has been a rewarding and inspiring lifelong commitment and she looks forward to having you as part of this journey to optimal health.
