Melanie LaBelle, ND

Mélanie was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in 2000. This news prompted her to seek out a Naturopathic Doctor for the first time. She was on many pain killing meds and anti inflammatory drugs which began to cause side effects. Her Naturopath changed her life twice. First, she overcame her RA and is now symptom free and medication free. Second, she became a Naturopathic Doctor herself. Mélanie graduated from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, in 2004. She had previously earned her BSc from the University of Western Ontario. She is a firm believer that if you give your body what it needs to heal itself, it can.

Currently, she resides in beautiful Wheatley River in Central Queens. Her main loves include fine food, vegetable gardening, downhill skiing and sailing. Dogs, a cat and some egg laying chickens keep her busy. Mélanie is fluent in both English and French.Contact Dr. Labelle directly at 902-314-2427
