Every destination has a unique path. Every story, a beginning.
Hi, I’m Dr. Michael Michna, ND (Dr. Mike) The story of how I became a naturopathic doctor is encapsulated by my own personal struggles and the experiences of those around me. As a child, I had struggled with various health problems: mainly chronic fatigue and digestive problems which were chalked off as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and stress. I was bounced around from doctor to doctor without a proper diagnosis or any real answers. It was not until I found someone who listened (a naturopathic doctor) that my life began to change. I began to take control of my health, slowly learning that healing came from both the inside and out.
Having discovered how to overcome my challenges, I can relate and understand how discouraging it is when you are not heard. I encourage my clients to ask questions, to challenge me and themselves, and to be active participants in their health.
I aim to find answers to your questions by piecing together your symptoms and medical history. Together, we will optimize your health by creating an all-encompassing plan that will meet your needs. There are no cookie-cutter plans here.
Dr. Mike’s practice is focused on conditions related to digestive health, hormone regulation, weight loss/management, low energy/fatigue and more. He believes that the body is interconnected in various intricate ways and that treating one condition involves treating the person as a whole. Dr. Mike values the latest research and integrates evidence-based medicine into his recommendations, supporting your journey into better health.
In his spare time, Mike can be found on the volleyball court or hiking on a nature trail near you. He is passionate about self-improvement and continues to hone his skills to better the lives of every patient he sees.
Dr. Mike is a member in good standing with the College of Naturopaths of Ontario, Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors, and the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors.
