Dr. Janice Dacyshyn
Dr. Dacyshyn graduated in 2005 from Bastyr University, the pre-eminent authority on science-based Naturopathic education. She has been in practice as a Naturopathic doctor in the Edmonton area for 10 years now, growing in her skills and experience as an expert in diagnostic evaluation and natural medicines.
She began her pre-medical studies initially to pursue conventional medicine, but quickly realized that it was Naturopathic medicine that would nurture her desire to empower and educate her patients on the powerful principles of preventative medicine. She feels that is truly an honour to do this work, and is inspired by the changes that her patients make. It is a privilege to serve the moms, the kids, the sisters, the brothers, the friends and co-workers of her patients and never takes any of these new meetings for granted.
Her passion in practice is to forge a personal connection with her patients based on a deep respect for the individual in her care and the personal journey they are on, and to get to the heart of their individual health concerns through a comprehensive and informed intake process. She relies on over 10 years of clinical experience to get an extensive history and to make an accurate medical assessment, and may use various testing modalities to elucidate further the causes behind the patient’s health issues. She strives for exceptional and effective patient care and encourages her patients to play an active role in their own personal treatment plan and healing process. Her patients thrive in the warm, compassionate environment that she creates-something that she recognizes as an important element in the doctor/patient equation. She is also enthusiastic about bridging the gap between conventional and Naturopathic medicine, and stays well-informed on both so that she can enjoy helping her patients negotiate the benefits of both.
She is a well-rounded practitioner with specialties including: digestive disorders such as IBS, Colitis and Crohn’s disease; hormonal issues including PMS, menopause, thyroid, adrenal and male hormone concerns; and mood disorders including depression and anxiety. She is delighted to work with children and adults of all ages.
She has received additional training and certification in the area of intravenous (IV) therapies, epigenetics, detoxification and hormone therapy.
Most recently she has successfully completed both written and oral exams in Pharmacology. She has been a guest on local television programs such as Breakfast television and has enjoyed doing lecturing in and around the city in both community and corporate venues on a variety of topics.
She is currently on the teaching faculty of the Canadian School Of Natural Nutrition and at Soul Fitness for their yoga teacher training programs. She does not do any biometric or vega testing in her practice, and prefers to use more specific and informative methods of analysis as listed on our services page.
As the resident Naturopathic doctor and clinic director at The Edmonton Clinic Of Naturopathic Medicine, Dr. Dacyshyn’s dream and vision of a complementary wholistic care centre has become a vision realized. The clinic is comprised of passionate professionals that take pride in the spirit of true collaboration for the betterment of their collective patient’s overall health and wellness. They would like to welcome you to their practices, and look forward to guiding you towards better health.
