Dr. Jennifer Tanner, ND graduated from the University of Western Ontario with a degree in Honours Kinesiology and loved the hands on experience of working as Athletic Therapist for the Varsity Rugby Team. She worked with CBC at the 2000 Sydney Summer Olympic Games before spending the next four years studying the art and science of Naturopathic Medicine. She was an active member of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine’s Sports Medicine Group.
Dr. Tanner received the Dr. Shimon Levytam Award for demonstrating principles of naturopathic medicine and applying them in daily clinic practices while promoting naturopathic medicine. She has been invited to speak internationally, trained with MD’s and various health care practitioners abroad and has appeared in Today’s Parent, well.ca and Best Health.
Dr. Tanner has a broad, evidence based practice with a focus on Sports Medicine and its link to inflammatory responses and the GI microbiota. Being a marathon runner and having been a competitive equestrian, an active lifestyle is important. Dr. Tanner’s other passion is for her three children, which is why she also chose to specialise in Pediatrics and Fertility. Dr. Tanner uses Acupuncture and Clinical Nutrition putting an emphasis on “food as medicine”. Additionally, she is trained in Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture which is a non-invasive method of improving the appearance of ageing skin.
Dr. Tanner is thrilled to help people achieve an optimal state of health!
