About Dr Angelica Kada
Doctor of Naturopathic MedicineDr Angelica Kada will be on maternity leave until September 2018.
Connecting with others, through medicine, and helping individuals live happier and healthier lives has always been my dream and inspiration. The importance of preventative medicine and physical exercise in the promotion of heath led me to complete an honours degree in kinesiology and health science at York University. Shortly thereafter, I had observed the gentle yet effective therapies of naturopathic medicine in a close family member. I was inspired by the effectiveness of naturopathic therapies both alone and in conjunction with conventional medicine. I became truly passionate about naturopathic medicine once I had learned about its aim to heal the whole person through individualized medicine by understanding the unique physical, mental, emotional, and environmental aspects that contribute to ones’ health.
I maintain a family based practice using individualized medicine to help patients of all ages, from infants to the elderly. I focus on diet and lifestyle to make long-term health changes while using herbs, homeopathy, acupuncture and nutritional supplements as a temporary aid to help the body rediscover balance and health.
I have a special interest in pre and post-natal care to help moms feel their best both before and after birth. I have also completed doula training for naturopathic doctors and have accompanied labouring mothers to provide naturopathic and emotional support during birth. Some common challenges of pregnancy and birth that naturopathic medicine can help include: obtaining optimal baby position, stalled labour, avoiding induction, pain management, pelvic floor weakness, and organ prolapse.
In addition to my family practice, I am passionate about global health. I have had the privilege of working with Natural Doctors International (NDI) in providing naturopathic care to members of rural Nicaraguan communities. I plan to continue to be involved with global health and the endeavor to make naturopathic medicine sustainable and accessible worldwide.
