ABOUT INNATE WELLNESS

Dr. Kathleen Regan & Dr. Angelina Riopel are co-founders of Innate Wellness who share the belief that wellness is a practice. A ‘wellness practice’ includes the foods we choose to eat, the way we spend our time and the beliefs that we hold. Our daily choices impact our future health. Illness doesn’t just happen, it manifests over time.  Wellness doesn’t just happen, it also manifests over time.

We are in a time where there is a lot of confusion and conflicting information on health and disease. As a society, we have lost sight of how disease happens and what we need to heal. We believe that the body has its own innate capacity to heal given the right conditions and support.  Our integrative team will work with you to  build a wellness practice and navigate your unique path to health.

The Innate Wellness Team is a dynamic group of compassionate health professionals that work together to help you achieve a vital and sustainable state of health and well-being.

 

THE TEAM

<strong>Dr. Kathleen Regan, ND</strong>
Dr. Kathleen Regan, NDNaturopathic Doctor

Dr. Regan believes that health begins with how and what we eat. She uses her experience with nutrition to help patients create medicinal nutrition programs and healthy habits one step at a time. Kathleen also takes a hands-on approach to health concerns by integrating Acupuncture, Cranial Sacral techniques, Bowen Therapy techniques, guided visualization and breathing exercises. She finds that when the body reaches a state of relaxation, the uninterrupted flow of breath and blood facilitates rapid healing. This approach can be helpful for a range of conditions including digestive concerns, autoimmune conditions, respiratory conditions, hormonal balance, fertility, chronic fatigue, chronic pain/injury, headaches, and stress management. Kathleen maintains a naturopathic family practice with a special interest in family medicine, prenatal, pregnancy and pediatric care.

Kathleen completed her naturopathic training at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto. She obtained her Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Toronto in Research Psychology. She is a member of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND) and the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (OAND).

<strong>Dr. Angelina Riopel, ND</strong>
Dr. Angelina Riopel, NDNaturopathic Doctor
Dr. Riopel believes that the first step to healing is the ability to hear what your body is communicating through emotions, symptoms and illness. In a balanced state we have the capacity to heal and self-regulate but many factors in our busy lives disrupt our innate ability to heal. Angelina works with diet and lifestyle as a foundation to health and healing and therapeutically (using herbal medicine, acupuncture, homeopathy and bio-resonance) to address obstacles and specific health concerns. By identifying and addressing these obstacles, the body is able to naturally come back to a state of wellbeing and balance. Angelina maintains a family practice and has a special interest in women’s health, infertility, hormonal imbalance, weight loss, chronic fatigue, skin health and digestive health.

Angelina is a graduate of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, Ontario. Angelina began her studies in Melbourne, Australia at the Melbourne College of Natural Medicine obtaining a degree in health sciences, specializing in naturopathy.
