Dr. Tanya Lee, Naturopathic Doctor and Registered Medical Herbalist

As a primary health care provider with a strong foundation in biochemistry and integrative, functional medicine, my goal is to educate and empower my patients; helping you understand your body and health holistically.

My Approach

I provide evidence-based treatments geared towards strengthening the body to help you to overcome your health concerns and achieve your health goals. My integrative approach to medicine blends my knowledge of biomedical sciences, botanical medicine, nutritional science, and Traditional Chinese medicine to find the most accurate diagnosis and effective treatment based on your individual health needs.

My Areas of Focus

Immunology

I have a keen interest in the area of immunology and how the immune system influences many other systems in the body, such as digestive health and mental health. This interest has led to my continual pursuit of expanding my knowledge in this area at institutions such as the University of Toronto, Institute of Functional Medicine and a number of integrative medical conferences. I have experience in treating a wide variety of autoimmune conditions and other immune-based health concerns such as asthma, eczema, and allergies.

Children’s Health

During my 1 year internship at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic, I was selected to be on a pediatric-focused shift, increasing my skills, knowledge, and exposure to the many common health conditions experienced by children. I have been certified as a Defeat Autism Now! Doctor (Level I), which provided me with extensive training and knowledge in the biochemical approach to Autistic Spectrum disorders.

Education and Professional Affiliations

I received my Honours Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry and Biomedical Sciences in 2005 from McMaster University, with a minor in history. I then went on to receive my degree in Naturopathic Medicine from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2009.

I am currently a member of the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors, and the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors. I am licensed through the College of Naturopaths of Ontario.

My license includes prescribing privileges for certain controlled medications such as bioidentical hormones, and also allows me to provide injectable therapies.

I am also a registered medical herbalist and I am a member of the Ontario Herbalists Association

Outside The Office

When I’m not practicing, you can find me outside. I spend my spring and summers camping, canoeing, and foraging our Ontario forests for medicinal and edible herbs and mushrooms. I love to stay active by cycling, running, and practicing yoga. I attempt to participate in winter sports. I keep my right brain activated through playing music, something I’ve been doing since I was 4 years old. I’m still trying to master the whole work-life balance thing, and strive to help my patients achieve similar goals. I believe that we can learn to live healthily, happily, while still shamelessly enjoying the indulgences life has to offer.
