Meet Dr. Jiselle Griffith, Naturopathic Doctor
Helping people achieve and maintain optimal health and well-being is both a calling and a passion for me.
From childhood dreams of healing sick animals, to saving the environment and communicating for social change as a young adult, I’ve always been inspired to work in a healing capacity.
With each turn of career, I witnessed - and personally experienced - the dilemma of the Western working world. People’s passion and drive for their work came head-to-head with gruelling hours and competing deadlines.
The inevitable result? High levels of fatigue, burnout, and chronic health concerns.
The calling came knocking in 2004. While working as a communications specialist for a national labour organization, I was invited to help create a pilot study treating low back pain in postal workers with naturopathic medicine. Here I saw first-hand that small consistent lifestyle changes, a supportive environment and traditional medicines could make a dramatic change. I was hooked. I knew I wanted to support people to feel better in this way, so they, in turn, could do the same for others. I set my sights on becoming a Naturopath.
safe and effective evidence-based and traditional medicines are the tools in my toolbox.
Treatments may use one or a combination of nutrition and lifestyle counselling, homeopathy, botanical medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and acupuncture. Naturopathic functional medicine testing is also available.
In my practice, I frequently address concerns of infertility, women’s health, cognitive health, and pain and stress management.
I work alongside you to unearth the root causes of illness, and support your life transitions. My overarching goal is to meet you where you’re at, and provide you with tools and practices to restore and maintain your optimal level of health.
A healthier you and healthier communities means accessible care.
Home care brings my services to your door if you're unable to come to see me at the Toronto or Hamilton clinics. Community Acupuncture and a sliding scale option for naturopathic services, are available to provide accessible care for a range of financial needs. Please ask me about this option if you can benefit.
