Dr. Frances Pierantoni, ND, became interested in a natural approach to healing in 2001 while being the caregiver of a cancer patient. While submerged in the conventional medical system, she had a strong sense that “There must be something else, this cannot be it” and was motivated to find alternative ways of healing. With an innate knowledge that nature provides everything humanity needs, she learned about aromatherapy, herbal remedies and energy healing. As she learned and applied this new knowledge into her daily life and the lives of those around her, Dr. Frances knew she had found what she was seeking – a healing path that supports the body’s process to return to its natural healthy state. A few years later, this search led her to Naturopathic Medicine. In 2013, Dr. Frances graduated from The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, ON as Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine. In addition, Dr. Frances has completed training in Reiki, Craniosacral Therapy, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, Naturopathic Doula, and Bowen Therapy. She now practices in Ottawa, ON as a registered Naturopathic Doctor.
Dr. Frances has a special interest in facilitating empowered lifestyle transformation by addressing her patient’s points of resistance and supporting them with easy steps that result in profound and long-lasting changes.
Dr. Frances has been a member in good standing of the College of Naturopaths of Ontario since 2015 and a certified CSEP Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor since June 2018.
