About Dr. Jill
Dr. Jill Kazuk
Heal the whole person is one of the six fundamental principles of naturopathic philosophy which strongly influences my clinical practice. As a naturopathic doctor, I prioritize and embrace the individuality of healing and consider each patient’s particular life experiences when discussing their health concerns and developing treatment plans. I love helping patients achieve greater balance in their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health all through the use of natural medicines. These include, but are not limited to, food intolerance evaluation, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, botanical medicine, homeopathy, flower essences, intravenous therapy and lifestyle counselling.
My past experiences as a competitive athlete illuminated both the incredible adaptability - and potential frailty - of the human body, and that deriving true health respects all aspects of one’s life. This time stands out as a turning point for me and marks my personal discovery and passion for sustainable and natural ways of healing and living.
I was trained as a primary care physician in Portland, Oregon at the National College of Natural Medicine (now NUNM) and am a board-certified, licensed naturopathic doctor with the Manitoba Naturopathic Association (MNA) and the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND). Prior to my medical training, I obtained my Masters of Arts in English literature from the University of Victoria and a Bachelor of Arts in English literature from the University of Manitoba.
I see patients of all ages, shapes, and sizes with all health issues. I strive to provide a safe and supportive space where healing can begin; I like to believe that my patience, thought, and dedication to this boundless medicine is evident from your first visit with me. I am continually humbled and inspired by the body’s ability to heal itself and feel fortunate to spend my time observing these changes unfold in others.
Living simply, growing and preparing food, reading, being creative, and immersing myself in the outdoors keeps me in balance outside of the clinic. I believe one’s wellness is intrinsically tied to how active, engaged, and connected they are to what it is they love most.
