Dr. Stephanie Trgachef is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor (2019) with a bachelor degree in Kinesiology with Honours from the University of Toronto (2015). She has a Therapeutics & Prescribing license for Naturopathic Doctors, allowing her to prescribe high dose vitamins and minerals, female hormones, desiccated thyroid medication and provide her patients with injection therapy. She believes in a systems based approach to care, meaning that each individual’s particular health dysfunction is unique. For example, two people may both have a diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome, but the underlying cause for one individual may be a heightened sympathetic nervous system response, and the other’s cause may be a heightened immune response to particular foods. This can be determined through physical examination, a thorough health history, and advanced comprehensive testing.Treatment plan may be inclusive of lifestyle and diet modification, natural health products, referral to injection and/or intravenous therapy, advanced testing, education, hormone therapy, acupuncture, and natural health products (vitamins, minerals, botanicals). Particular areas of interests include: Female hormones, psychological disturbances and gastrointestinal health.
