Dr. Patrice Butterfield, ND – Collingwood Naturopathic Doctor

Dr. Patrice Butterfield, ND

As a Naturopathic Doctor, I believe in helping people to help themselves. As a mom of two young children, I know the importance of maintaining an active, conscious, and true-to-you lifestyle in order to keep up with the demands of everyday life. It’s no secret that life can get a little crazy. It’s not always easy. It’s constantly changing. And while there is no magic elixir for perfect health, there is always a way to find, and achieve, a unique personal balance.

I’m here to answer your questions so you don’t have to resort to endless Google searches. I’m here to provide REAL game plans that will actualize positive change. I’m here to help you overcome life’s hurdles, naturally and gracefully. I see myself as an active supporter in the optimization of your overall health.

My goal is to work collaboratively with you and develop an ongoing partnership that not only educates you on health solutions, but also empowers you to sustain them. From my own experience, I can tell you that optimal wellness can be achieved when you blend the right information with the right inspiration.

Seeing beyond the symptoms
Naturopathy has the capacity to affect great change in your life in two ways: by uncovering the root cause of a health issue or complaint AND by finding a long term, natural and individialized solution. My areas of interest are:

Aging wellness, energy and fatigue, sleep issues, mood, weight loss/management, digestive issues,hormonal shifts and changes, brain fog and mild cognitive decline, child and family health, nutritional testing, interpreting and implementing genetic testing, auto-immune conditions (particularly Hashimoto’s thyroid disease), and more.

Education & Professional Experience

I hold a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine degree from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM). I’m registered to practice under and currently in good standing with the College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO). I’m also currently a member of the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (OAND) and the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND).

Prior to my naturopathic schooling, I completed a Bachelor of Arts in Applied Communications from Royal Roads University in Victoria, British Columbia. I moved to Toronto in 2006 to work in the not-for-profit sector and subsequently worked in communications for the government of Ontario. And here I am today!

My motto: never stop learning and growing!
