Frances Turk graduated with Honours in Nutrition and Nutraceutical science at Guelph University, with a minor in Dramatic Arts. She then went on to the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine to pursue her dream of being a Naturopathic Doctor. Frances has a strong interest in the community and is always involved in something to assist those in need. Frances is the founder of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine’s Clown Care Unit, a fun loving troop of clowns that provide comic relief when needed. They are active in local long term care facilities as well as hosting events for children in need right at the college. Frances was awarded the Community Spirit Award by her peers during her graduation at the college, an award she cherishes and holds dear to her heart. Frances’ passion for her patients is to assist them in living healthier lifestyles through nutritional education, but also to empower them to find their healing potentials on their own journey to wellness.
Frances includes in her repertoire of holistic therapies the modalities of Bowen Therapy (a dynamic system of muscle and connective tissue therapy that stimulates the body to heal itself, often profoundly), and intravenous therapy (a method of administering an individually balanced combination of vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream). Frances is also a personal trainer and assists individuals in proper resistance exercises to help them maintain their independence with proper posture and strength.
Frances has written articles for SNAP magazine as well as local newspapers, and she is actively speaking in her community about a series of topics including nutrition, internal cleansing, breathing techniques, humour therapy and physical exercise to name a few.
Frances is currently accepting new patients.
