We asked Dr. Davis some questions

Can you tell us more about your medical background and education?

I have a Bachelor of Kinesiology degree from McMaster University and a Naturopathic Medical Degree from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine.

I’ve been in practising naturopathic medicine since 2004 and have experience treating patients with a variety of conditions ranging from the common cold to cancer. I believe in open communication and patient education. My practice focuses on establishing and treating the root cause of a patient’s symptoms or illness.

What inspired you to become a doctor?

Growing up, I was an avid reader and always wanted to be a detective. Nancy Drew was my childhood idol! I feel that naturopathic medicine gives me an opportunity to really get to know my patients. Together we work to discover the root cause of their health concerns and improve their overall wellbeing.

What do you love the most about practising medicine?

I really enjoy meeting a variety of people. I get to learn their personal and health histories, and develop relationships with them. I take the time to learn what makes each patient unique. It’s their distinctive stories that give clues to their health.

What’s your favourite part about practising on Maple?

Maple’s virtual platform removes barriers to healthcare in a country where large distances separate people. Being able to meet virtually is the dominant strength of Maple’s platform. This enables me to connect with more people, and bring naturopathic medicine to patients near and far. Over time this improves the health of larger communities.

What’s the most challenging aspect of working in the medical field?

Naturopathic medicine is still a relatively unknown form of healthcare. It’s often challenging to break down preconceived notions about what a Naturopathic Doctor does and what skills we bring. Although there is increasing awareness, we have a long way to go to truly integrate conventional and naturopathic medical philosophies. I love that Maple offers naturopathic medicine on its platform.

If you could choose any other career, what would it be?

I love to garden. If I was not a Naturopathic Doctor, I would be a professional gardener. Botanical medicine fascinates me, so I would immerse myself in all things green.

Is there an individual in the medical community that you find most inspiring?

That would be my sister. She is a conventional family physician practicing in Ontario and I appreciate her acceptance and support of naturopathic medicine. She shares so much compassion with her patients.

Can you share a health-hack that has made your life better?

I am a huge proponent of getting outside daily, regardless of the weather. Regular doses of nature are incredibly healing. This is the best medicine — simple and free.

What do you do in your spare time?

I have a full-time practice in a small town in southeast Saskatchewan. I also own and operate a store called MADE: Local – Authentic – Sask, promoting products made in Saskatchewan. I am a runner and love to get out on a regular basis. If I’m not running, I enjoy meeting up with friends and going for walks. Cooking and reading are my favourite hobbies as they both help me use my brain in non-medical ways.

Not having to endure a long wait at a walk in clinic is fabulous. Especially since I have twin pre-schoolers to contend with.

Instead of my husband having to drag both kids to the hospital or walk in alone he was able to see a doctor right away and get a prescription faxed to our local pharmacy.
