Dr. Janea Wright ND is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor with the Saskatchewan Association of Naturopathic Practitioners and the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors. She also has a Bachelor of Science in Anatomy and Cell Biology from the U of S. Her 4-year, full-time medical training was completed at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in Vancouver, BC.
Dr. Janea is also a mom boss. She gave birth to her first son just a week after she graduated from the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine, writing national and provincial board exams to become a licensed Naturopathic Doctor just three weeks later. For the next five years, her family of three moved around the world—including Russia, Kazakhstan, and Sweden—before moving back home to Saskatoon last year where her second son was born. During this time, she expanded her knowledge about gut health, mental health, pregnancy, postpartum, and children’s health, both from personal experience and continuing medical education.
“One of the greatest parts of my job is helping patients feel like themselves again.”
At a young age, Janea was diagnosed with a rare genetic type of diabetes. This led to her introduction to naturopathic medicine. From that experience she learned how important proper nutrition and exercise is for our bodies. It also fuelled her passion to become a Naturopathic Doctor.
Dr. Janea’s goal with patients is to help them optimize their health so they can thrive in everyday activities. It is important to her that her patients feel heard and supported. In order to attain optimal health, it is important that not only the symptoms are treated but that the root cause of the problem is also addressed. Dr. Janea considers herself a personal health detective, investigating your health concerns through an in-depth medical history, indicated physical exams, and diagnostic laboratory testing. Each and every body is unique which is why it is so important to individualize treatment plans for each patient. Treatment can include a combination of various evidence based traditional and/or conventional therapies.
