As a Naturopath in Toronto, my focus is on healthcare, not sickcare. Rather than masking symptoms, we work together to treat the root cause. Above all, it’s important that you feel confident about your health plan.Dr. Sara Celik, ND
Are you ready for a personalized approach to your health?
As a Naturopath in Toronto, I have treated patients for over 15 years. I focus on digestive health, women’s health, and weight loss.
There are two key areas of my practice.
Firstly, I complement conventional medicine with lifestyle advice and natural treatments. I do not replace the need for a medical doctor. Most of my patients are on medication and I believe MDs and NDs need to work together. The goal is to provide the best care possible for the patient.
Secondly, I treat the root cause. Root cause medicine is not about masking symptoms. It’s about healing the whole person.
If you’re looking for an experienced Naturopath in Toronto who is ready to empower you on your health journey and help you feel better, you’re in the right place.
As a Naturopath in Toronto, I take the time to listen to my patients. I believe in empowered healthcare.
All patients receive a customized treatment plan.
Treatment plans are typically developed based on results from lab work (Functional Medicine). A detailed intake to assess your current health state is done during the initial consult.
Functional Medicine is about combining modern science with the wisdom of nature. It’s about treating the root cause of symptoms.Dr. Sara Celik, ND
Do I have to take supplements?
Most likely, yes. Supplements help maximize results.
All supplements are carefully selected and monitored as part of your treatment plan. Supplements are an investment in your health. I don’t over-prescribe and only recommend formulations that are a necessary part of your treatment plan.
I want to do the IgG food sensitivity test through Lifelabs in Ontario. How do I get a requisition form for the food sensitivity blood test?
It’s great that you want to take the guess work out of your diet and get tested. However, this test is only available to patients. You need to book a consultation in order to receive a requisition form for this test.
I need a quick-fix. Can the Naturopath help?
If you are looking for a quick-fix and are not willing to invest in your health, I am probably not the right Naturopathic Doctor for you.
While many patients feel better in weeks, I don’t subscribe to the quick-fix approach.
The quick-fix approach does not address the root cause. Consequently, the results are typically not long-lasting.
Are lab tests ordered by the Naturopath in Toronto covered under OHIP or insurance?
Lab tests ordered through the Naturopath are not covered under OHIP. However, the good news is that some tests are covered under health insurance. So please check your plan.
Lab tests may uncover underlying health issues. Routine lab work may not flag health problems until it’s too late. For example, standard thyroid tests often miss early signs of thyroid dysfunction.
In short, a Naturopath may conduct more thorough testing to assess developing health problems. Prevention is an important element of Naturopathic Medicine.
Is Naturopathic Medicine the same as Functional Medicine?
Yes. Naturopathic Doctors use the same lab tests, nutrition protocols, and supplements as Functional Medicine Doctors. In addition, we treat the root cause and share the same principles as Functional Medicine Doctors.
I want to become a patient. Can I see the Naturopath in Toronto?

Lab tests and naturopathic care virtually are similar to in-office settings. To clarify, patients will not miss out by booking a virtual appointment.
