Hi – I’m Dr. Sarah Silverman,
As a Naturopathic Doctor, I’m passionate about sharing the benefits of healthy living and teaching patients how they can optimize their health on an individual level. Seeing my patients transform from sluggish and drained to full of life and energy is what inspires me every day!
My journey to practicing naturopathic medicine started several years ago, however as I recently began experiencing the symptoms of an autoimmune disorder myself, I decided to shift focus and help others in the same position.
After a lengthy period of high stress, I noticed that my hair began to thin and my energy levels had greatly decreased. It was then that I was tested and diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, an autoimmune thyroid disease.
Managing this condition fuels my passion for treating autoimmune disease, and determining the right nutrition and supplements to encourage a healthy gut and immune system. I have personally experienced the benefits that these changes can make, and have also witnessed positive changes in the lives of my patients.
My goal is to help you feel the best that you can!
I look forward to working with you on this health journey.
