Dr. Carrie Meszaros, N.D., R.Ac.
I am originally from Paris, Ontario. Digestive health issues throughout my teens and university years led me toward an interest in Naturopathic Medicine. After unsuccessfully looking for answers conventionally, I looked towards natural health care and found answers and tools to heal my body. My health improved dramatically after identifying foods that were the cause of my chronic symptoms. I love helping other people find solutions to their unexplained health challenges.
My practice is a general family naturopathic practice. I have special interests in helping patients improve their digestion, energy, mood and their hormonal health. Healthy hormonal balance may include optimizing fertility, minimizing period related symptoms, managing perimenopausal issues, improving thyroid function or a combination of any of these concerns.
My university training was completed at the University of Guelph, where I received an honours degree in Bio-Medical Science. Following university, I received my naturopathic training at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto, Ontario. I am registered with Ontario College of Naturopaths and am a member of both the Ontario and Canadian Naturopathic Associations (OAND and CAND).
I moved to Stratford, Ontario in 2001 to begin my naturopathic practice. In 2003, I opened my own clinic The Naturopathic Care Centre. Acupuncture has been part of my naturopathic practice since 2001. When the new regulatory body for acupuncturists was formed in 2014; I became licensed as a Registered Acupuncturist with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario. In 2015, I completed the Ontario Prescribing and Therapeutics Course and Exam to allow an expanded scope of naturopathic practice that authorizes me to therapeutically prescribe thyroid medications, bio-identical hormones and higher doses of some restricted natural substances.
On A Personal Note
I am married with two teenage stepdaughters and two young children, a son and a daughter. We live in beautiful Stratford, Ontario. I enjoy time outdoors, spending time with my family, learning more about natural health, photography, and spending time in the kitchen exploring and experimenting with new recipes.
