Hi, I’m Dr. Denise Patterson, ND. I obtained my Doctor of Naturopathy degree at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine and also hold a Bachelor of Health Science Degree (Honours), with a major in Kinesiology from the University of Ontario Institute of Technology.

I have always had a love for science and health. Throughout my 8 years of post-secondary education, my passion for modern medicine and evidence based diagnostic tools grew even stronger. Fast forward to today, I am a Naturopathic Doctor serving my amazing patients in Sunderland and Lindsay, Ontario.

In 2020 I published my book, Healthy Habit Haul (or H3 for short!) with the goal of helping more people implement healthy habits into their everyday lives. If you feel like you know everything you should be doing but get overwhelmed when it comes to implementing, this book is for you!

Whether through my book or as a patient in my practice, let’s work together to get you feeling your best in order to create the life you know you deserve!

Meet Your Naturopathic Doctor

Naturopathic medicine is where modern scientific knowledge and natural forms of medicine come together to target the direct cause of illness to help you feel your best.



As a Naturopathic Doctor, I use different treatment modalities such as botanical medicine, lifestyle modification, nutraceutical supplementation, nutritional and dietary counselling, Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture. Each individualized treatment plan draws from a variety of these modalities based on the patient’s needs. Naturopathic treatment plans are also designed to work collaboratively alongside any current medical prescriptions.

I use a variety of diagnostic testing such as bloodwork and comprehensive testing. Functional testing gives us important and unique insight into what is going on in your body, allowing us to tailor your treatment plan to meet your specific needs. It also allows us to track your progress as you start to implement changes on the road to optimal wellness.
