Dr. Danielle Commisso
naturopathic doctor, facial acupuncturist

My health struggles began at the age of nine, when I was diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune condition that causes swelling, pain, stiffness and damage in the joints. It wasn’t until an extreme arthritis flare up at the end of my university career that I was introduced to the incredible world of Naturopathic Medicine. Working with a Naturopathic Doctor, I was able to decrease my inflammation by treating my body as a whole and getting to the root of my autoimmune condition. Through diet, lifestyle and individualized supplementation, my condition improved. This is when I knew that Naturopathic medicine was the only career path for me. My goal was always to have an occupation where I could help others, and this was my opportunity to do so in a way I truly believed in.

My focus in practice is women’s health, stress, digestive concerns and autoimmune conditions. I am passionate about helping women get to the root of their health concerns, and as a result, reduce PMS and regulate their periods, reduce menopausal symptoms, increase energy levels, heal digestive upset and ease stress and anxiety through dietary and lifestyle changes, high quality supplementation and acupuncture. I pride myself in educating my patients so they can leave each appointment feeling empowered and confident in reaching their health goals! My personal experience of feeling a sense of helplessness during my own healthcare journey gives me a unique perspective and allows me to connect with each of my patients on a deeper level. We work as a team to achieve your health goals and I am there every step of the way to support you.
