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.

I knew that something was wrong, that something was out of balance, but I didn't know how to address it, or where to start, although, I did my management studies, an engineer by degree, and motivated in offering service. It was very exciting, but not enough to settle my hunger in understanding health, spirituality, and human nature.
In the pursuit of my determination to adopt an approach that is rationalized in the sciences, but motivated by art and spirituality, and modeling a healthy lifestyle, I landed in the perfect profession of Naturopathic Medicine. After completing my undergraduate program biotechnology at York University in Toronto, I pursued my passion for medicine at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine and graduated as a Doctor of Naturopathy. Since then, I became a student for life, as continuing education is an essential and integral part of patient care in naturopathic medicine.
Healing comes from engaging the self as a whole, taking into consideration the body, mind, and spirit – totality as united organs working in synchronization. I adopt naturopathic philosophy in practice to maintain health through life cycles by individualized treatment, preventative care, self-care, identification of imbalances and inherent vulnerabilities, teaching, and supporting healthy nutrition and life choices.
I offer nutritional support and supplements, herbal medicine, homeopathy, Traditional Chinese Medicine (acupuncture), and lifestyle counseling.
My ultimate goal is to optimize each patient’s natural ability to heal by utilizing the science and art that naturopathic medicine has to offer, as an adjunctive to conventional medicine, to empower my patients with the knowledge and tools to get on top of their condition, so that they can take charge of their health and feel their best on the inside and out!
With an open heart, I am privileged to listen to your story and be next to you on your health journey.
