Helping women optimize their health and live vibrantly.
Hi, I’m Dr. Christine Fortier, ND
I’m a naturopathic doctor who specializes in women’s hormone health. While I do see a range of patients, my primary focus is helping women of all ages feel more vibrant and balanced, naturally! I love helping my patients uncover the secrets to optimizing their health and wellness, so that they can experience more energy, better moods, a happier gut, more restful sleep, and greater peace of mind.
Raise your hand if this sounds like you:
Struggling to lose or maintain your weight
Feeling distracted and low energy after lunch (no matter how many coffees you drink)
Unable to get a good night’s sleep, even when exhausted
Trouble making it through your period without painkillers, or being able to predict when they will start
Dealing with uncomfortable symptoms of perimenopause or menopause
Feeling stressed out and overwhelmed on a daily basis
(Bonus points if you can’t stay out of the snack drawer after 9pm.)
While these common symptoms are experienced by many women from their late 20s onward, they aren’t inevitable! I can help you understand the deeper details of your health, explore the best options for reaching your personal wellness goals, and create an amazing lifestyle that will keep you feeling your best. As the only naturopathic practitioner in Timmins licenced to prescribe hormone therapy, I help my patients find new balance and get back to living full, active, and playful lives! I offer in-person, telephone, and virtual appointments.
I believe in using the right tool for the right job — and I have a lot of tools! When we work together, I will use a variety of modalities including diet and lifestyle counselling, supplements, botanicals, acupuncture, and the option of bioidentical hormone therapy in order to create a fully personalized treatment plan that is designed to get your best results.
I believe in getting healthy and staying healthy. I take a holistic, evidence-based approach that is focused on helping you not only feel better today, but lower your risk of future illness. I look at multiple areas of your health to ensure that you’re enjoying your highest level of wellness, and will continue to do so for years to come.
I believe in listening to your experience, rather than telling you how you feel. During our in-depth assessments and scheduled accountability appointments (yes, I will help you stay on track!), I will take your questions and concerns seriously — and make sure that you feel understood and supported every step of the way.
