Dr. Julie Robinson, ND
Dr. Julie Robinson, ND completed her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree at St. Francis Xavier University. During her time in the program, she became acutely aware of the importance of complementary care alongside conventional care, to better serve the whole patient and improve overall health outcomes. This led to her enrolment in the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM), where she completed her 4-year degree to become a Naturopathic Doctor.
Julie has 3 primary focus areas: supportive cancer care, addressing cardiovascular disease risk, and menopause. While cancer remains the leading cause of death in Canada, cardiovascular disease is the second which fuels her passion in supporting individuals that have conditions that increase their risk of cardiovascular disease such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, or a family/personal history of cardiovascular disease. Her passion for supporting women suffering during menopause is driven by a desire to validate their symptoms and provide options to improve their quality of life during this transition. Overall, she strives to increase health span which entails providing care to patients to allow for optimal quality of life into their elder years.
Julie’s hobbies include hiking, camping, and traveling with her husband and dog. These interests have led to unique life experiences such as living in Jasper National Park and trekking in the Himalayas.
