About Heather MacRae
Heather MacRae is a graduate of the University of Guelph, and 20 years later graduated from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. In her ten years of practice as an ND, Heather has developed special passions for Acupuncture, Botanical Medicine and Nutrition.
Trained in three styles of Acupuncture Heather enjoys supporting people with pain, anxiety, insomnia, addiction recovery, weight loss, digestive distress, auto-immune and neurodegenerative disorders, PMS, peri-menopause and much more. (Time on the table can also be time to discuss how diet, nutritional supplements, and Botanical Medicines can complement treatments. Body work, nutritional and botanical medicines can all be adjuncts to any other care you are under.)
A resident of Guelph for 30 years, Heather has been committed to accessibility of Naturopathic Medicine for all and offers compassionate, trauma-informed care for individuals and families. As well as being active in the community, Heather works with people with disabilities and has gained a great deal of experience and insight regarding health in all walks of life.
Heather's love of alternative medicine began with the warm, holistic nurturing of midwifery care and naturally led to Naturopathic medicine. A strong pre-occupation with seeds, growing, harvesting and making medicines with plants fits beautifully with Heather's models of care which include life with lots of movement, whole foods, and a healthy relationship with natural surroundings.
Heather lives with one of her three grown children, and four four-legged creatures! Radical self-care has healed her through some difficult years. Photographing nature, writing poetry, playing music and growing/harvesting/cooking/eating food bring her a joy and whole health that she is eager to share.
