Dr. Rebecca Hauser, ND
I believe everyone is entitled to be able to have the energy to do the things they enjoy, to do so free from pain and to fully discover their health potential. Naturopathic medicine, and the care I provide my patients, is my way of integrating modern research and medical knowledge with the philosophies of traditional medical arts. My areas of interest are fertility, pain management, digestive health, pediatrics, athletic optimization, and complementary cancer care.
I found my way to naturopathic medicine after spending the majority of my childhood growing up in rural Alberta and exploring nature. During this time I came to realize the inherent power of nature to provide us with the tools to heal ourselves. Learning from the balance evident in nature, I started to develop my own view of healing and medicine, along with a greater appreciation for food as a foundation to our health. Striving to understand the human body and nature at its smallest level I studied genetics at the University of Alberta. During this time I was fortunate enough to work with children with autism and cerebral palsy and as a clinic director for an orthopedic surgeon. This provided me with a greater appreciation of the challenges faced in healthcare, as well as the need for all health care providers to work together to create a health care team.
To be able to provide the care I believe people deserve, I moved to Toronto to attend the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM), a fully accredited naturopathic medical college. I was fortunate enough to take part in an externship in Nicaragua at a non-profit clinic, as well as a pediatric specialty shift during my internship while at CCNM. During the last 6 years working as a Naturopathic Doctor I have attended many different continuing education and training courses in complementary cancer care, pediatrics, genomics and injection therapies to continue serving my patients and community as best as I can.
In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors, playing sports and being active, reading and spending time with my family, friends and my pets.
