Dr. Sheldon Jordan, ND
At the age of 17, I had a glimpse of myself as a healer, with the vision of treating the body, mind, and spirit: the whole person. It took some time before I was introduced to Naturopathic medicine but the connection was instantaneous. After completing a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education degree, I moved to Toronto to attend the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, one of two accredited colleges in Canada. Graduating valedictorian of my class while starting a family, I felt compelled to move back to Alberta, where there is a need for naturopaths. The natural fit was Beaumont, a city with a small town feel, which respects its past while embracing a vibrant future, much like naturopathic medicine.
Naturopathic medicine is about finding the root cause of dis-ease, and working with the body’s ability to heal itself by supporting it. Together with my patients, we put together a plan that fits their needs and respects their values, whether it’s using nutrition, exercise, supplemental vitamins and minerals, herbal medicine, acupuncture, injection therapies, intravenous (IV) therapy, or other modalities.
Having a family practice, it is important to me to ensure that each member of the family can experience optimal health. I enjoy working to correct digestion, hormones (for both men and women), energy, stress, and any concerns that arise for children. In my training in naturopathic school, I trained under one of the pillars of the naturopathic oncology community and have a strong interest in assisting cancer patients from the beginning of cancer diagnosis, throughout treatment, and into prevention of recurrence or progression.

Jami Danko, Certified Holistic Nutrition Counselor (C.H.N.C) Growing up, as a Type 1 Diabetic and a student-athlete, diet and physical activity were a consistent focus in my life.
In university, my social life grew and my health was neglected. I battled with negative self-talk and became calorie obsessive. A few years later, wanting to become a mom, I regained my health and was able to have two successful pregnancies. I now have 2 boys aged 1 and 3.
It was becoming a mom when I really began to realize the importance of being well. After going back to school to pursue a certificate in holistic nutrition, it is now my hope to do the same for others, starting with food as a foundation for achieving wellness.

Nichole is a graduate from MH Vicars School of Massage Therapy. She likes practicing a more therapeutic style of massage, focusing on finding the root of what is causing the pain and creating a treatment plan to effectively treat it. Her overall focus for treatments is for relieving pain, restoring range of motion, treating musculoskeletal conditions and increasing overall tissue health. Each treatment plan is specially made for each client’s individual goals and needs.
Dr. Sydney Speer
I have always wanted to be a doctor, but when I worked at a medical office in my second year of university I felt that there was more to health and wellness that was missing. That’s when I found Naturopathic Medicine. I remember learning about the 6 principles of naturopathic medicine and almost immediately feeling drawn to the profession. I aim to work with you to create a plan so you can feel your best.
I studied Biological Sciences at the University of Alberta before moving to Toronto to study at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine.
I am excited to be joining Naturopathie Integrative Clinic. Dr. Sheldon Jordan ND has been a mentor and inspiration since I had my interview for Naturopathic Medical School, and I couldn’t be more honoured to join him and the clinic.
When I’m not in the clinic, I love spending time with my husband, Peter, being outside, hiking, biking or skiing (both downhill and cross country).
As a Naturopathic Doctor, I strive to empower patients to make informed decisions about their healthcare by providing them with evidence-based information.
I would be honoured to be your naturopathic doctor and am looking forward to helping you with your healthcare needs.
Constance Day MN, NP
Growing up in Nova Scotia with two older sisters who became RN’s, it seemed my career path was already set from a young age. I initially trained as a baccalaureate nurse at St.F.X. University and upon graduation boarded a plane to practice down south in Texas for a short time. Upon my return, I practiced as a floor nurse, met my life partner, and had a baby girl! Not only did my life change dramatically, but so did the health care system! I felt a pull to further my education, I felt I was capable of doing more for my patients!
I earned a Master’s degree of Nursing from Athabasca and a diploma of Nurse Practitioner studies from Dalhousie University to become a full-fledged Nurse Practitioner for Family and All Ages. We picked up our stakes in Nova Scotia and headed to Fort McMurray, Alberta!
Although I enjoyed being an RN, I love being an NP. My scope of practice is similar to a family doctor, but my roots in nursing have never been forgotten. I provide service that is based on the whole person, and similar to naturopathic medicine, my goal is to be able to help clients understand their health issues and move towards optimal wellness.
