Lead would like to welcome Dr. Willow Langille BSc, ND to our Integrated Therapies team. Dr. Langille grew up in Hampton, NB – a small, close knit community surrounded by beautiful countryside. She was first introduced to many of the ideals of Naturopathic Medicine from a young age, where eating clean, local foods, getting plenty of fresh air and activity, and using natural therapies were a norm within her family home. Willow went on to complete her Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry with a minor in Anthropology from Mount Allison University. It was here that she discovered Naturopathic Medicine – the perfect calling to meld her love of science and the art of medicine. Willow blends modern-day scientific research and evidence-based medicine with traditional therapies, to help bring your body back into balance, help you feel like yourself again, and achieve greater long-term health.
Willow is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor with the the Saskatchewan Association of Naturopathic Practitioners, the New Brunswick Association of Naturopathic Doctors, and the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors. As a Naturopathic Doctor, she is trained to work with patients of all ages (from prenatal to geriatric) with a wide range of health concerns.
Her special interests include:
- women’s health
- hormonal and digestive health
- fertility and perinatal care
- children’s health
- weight management
- stress, depression, and anxiety
As part of her care, Willow completes diagnostic assessments, including physical exams and blood tests, and provides collaborative and individualized treatment plans that include clinical nutrition and supplementation, diet and lifestyle counselling, botanical medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture, physical medicine and bodywork, homeopathy, and/ or hydrotherapy.
When asked, Dr. Langille said she was drawn to Lead because of her passion for integrative medicine. “Integrative medicine is a model of healthcare in which different healthcare practitioners and disciplines work collaboratively to achieve a patient’s health goals. This means MDs, NDs, DCs, RMTs, etc. having open lines of communication, drawing on appropriate, evidence informed therapies from both conventional and alternative forms of medicine to achieve optimal health and healing for their patients. This form of medicine focuses on the whole person and reaffirms the importance of the relationship between the practitioner and the patient, with the patient being an active partner in their own care. Lead is leading this model of healthcare in Saskatoon, and I am very excited to be a part of this innovative team!”
Outside of the office, Willow enjoys cooking (especially the eating!), spending time in nature, and a good board game with family and friends. For Willow, an active and healthy lifestyle is a way of life for her family!
