Hi, I’m glad you’re here!
Since you took the time to dive a little deeper, let me tell you about me, and what I can do to help you. Your health is a journey. Start here.
I understand that you’re busy (aren’t we all), and that taking the first steps to improve your health can be scary. Especially when you’ve been through the conventional medical system and felt disempowered, small, and ultimately not heard by someone you thought you could trust.
Let me address some things right away. I will never tell you what to do without your input. I’m all about co-creating health, and giving my patients the skills, knowledge, and evidence to make the health choices that work for them. I see health as a combined effort between patient and doctor, so you’ll never be on your own.
I will listen. Your period cramps are not “silly female problems” and your PMS does not make you “crazy”. Your concerns will be taken seriously, and no one thing is too small or too big to be talked about.
I understand what makes female physiology unique. I’ll say it as many times as people will listen; women are not small men. As a result we should not give them the same supplements, diets, or exercise as men. We should not expect them to heal in the same way as men, or to get sick in the same way as men. Why would we treat them like men?
If you're ready to feel amazing, kick-butt, and become the badass heroine that you truly are, I urge you to connect with me. Book a free 15 minute meet & greet, and let’s see how we can work together to address your concerns.
Meet Dr. Jennah
Jennah Miller is a Toronto based Naturopathic Doctor who believes that the strongest step a woman can take towards empowering herself, is in taking care of her health. She works with weird, wild, and badass women in co-creating their own unique brilliance. Dr. Jennah understands that women are not just small men, and she thinks it's high time your health care took that into account. Don't you? Being a female who has navigated the conventional medical system herself Dr. Jennah recognizes that many female health concerns are quickly dismissed and often not taken seriously. Period cramps are brushed off as “silly female problems”, irregular menses are immediately given the pill, and ultimately women are treated as their conditions, and not the unique individuals that they are.
Dr. Jennah graduated from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine with a special interest in fertility and reproductive health, as well as a passion for teaching women how to love their periods and connect with the shifting tides of their own bodies. With an undergraduate degree in Nutrition, she has an in depth knowledge of how to fuel the female body. She believes above all, that you are important and worth your own time.
Outside of the clinic, you can find Dr. Jennah reading/listening to podcasts about the wild woman movement, visiting farmer’s markets, talking about the magic of menstruation, and trying/failing to keep her houseplants alive.

What about men or non-female identifying individuals? Do you treat them?
Yes! I like to joke and say that I treat women and “brave men”, but I ultimately would be honoured to treat any individual regardless of assigned gender or gender expression. If you think you would be interested in working with me, please get in touch or book a 15-minute complimentary visit to see if we would work well together.
What is naturopathic medicine?
Naturopathic medicine has been practiced in North America for over 125 years. It is a health system that uses a combination of modern scientific knowledge and traditional forms of natural medicine. Naturopathic medicine aims to prevent illness, promote wellness and stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal. The various naturopathic treatments are chosen based on the individual needs of the patient. This includes their physiological, structural, psychological, social, spiritual, environment and lifestyle factors. When you go to see a Naturopathic Doctor you may discuss diet and lifestyle changes. You may also receive natural therapies such as botanical medicine, acupuncture, hydrotherapy, clinical nutrition or naturopathic manipulation. These days more and more people are seeking the care of a Naturopathic Doctor, often in addition to their Medical Doctor. Naturopathic Medical care is covered by many private health insurance plans.

What is a naturopathic doctor?
Naturopathic doctors are provincially-regulated primary care providers. With extensive education, including a pre-med degree and four years of training at an accredited naturopathic college, NDs integrate standard medical diagnostics with a broad range of natural therapies. NDs are eclectic, each with a slightly different approach, but they all believe that balancing the mind, body and environment is the path to optimal health because it supports the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Naturopathic doctors are also experts at early detection, prevention and treatment of chronic disease, and their personalized treatment plans work with each individual patient’s lifestyle and body chemistry.
What conditions can naturopathic doctors treat?
NDs are primary healthcare practitioners, and can treat the same conditions as a family doctor, including acute concerns and chronic health conditions. In the event that an ND is unable to treat your condition, he or she will consult or refer appropriately.
Are naturopathic doctors regulated in Ontario?
Yes. Registration with a governing body helps ensure that NDs have the knowledge, skill and judgment to carry out their role. The Naturopathy Act was proclaimed on July 1, 2015 and the profession has been regulated by the College of Naturopaths since that date. Naturopathic doctors are regulated under the Regulated Health Professions Act, alongside all other regulated health professions.
How do I pay for a visit to a naturopathic doctor?
Currently, OHIP does not cover visits to a naturopathic doctor. However, most extended healthcare plans include naturopathic medicine, so check with your provider to see the amount of your coverage.
