My name is Jewel Alfoure and I am blessed with one of the most rewarding jobs in the world! My journey to naturopathic medicine started as a part of my everyday life. I had the wonderful opportunity to grow up in different areas of one of the most beautiful places in the world: Africa. Watching the local traditions and learning what I later understood to be “ethnobotany” made my summers a constant adventure.
As a Medical Science student at Brock University, like many, I wanted to pursue medicine to help others. Somewhere along the way, I got lost on that journey and I discovered the magic of Naturopathic medicine.
I learned that natural therapies can follow the same rigorous criteria of science and offer safety as well as efficacy. I learned that true medicine is the art of compassionately delivering the best of science to better the lives of others. Finally, I learned that medicine is a constraint adventure! There is always space to grow and discover more in the world of naturopathy.
