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.

My name is Sydney Speer and I am in my final year of study in becoming a naturopathic doctor at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. I am excited to be joining Naturopathie as a naturopathic medical intern under the supervision of Dr. Sheldon Jordan ND for the month of November.
It wasn't until I started my undergraduate degree, that I was introduced to Naturopathic medicine. After doing some more research and talking to several local naturopathic doctors, I knew that naturopathic medicine was exactly where I was meant to be. I feel strongly of the naturopathic principles of treating the cause of disease and treating the whole person, including the physical, mental and emotional aspects. As a Naturopathic Intern, I strive to empower patients to make informed decisions about their healthcare by providing them with evidence-based information.
I have a passion for working with the pediatric population and their families. After completing additional courses in pediatric health, I was selected for the competitive pediatric shift. I work under naturopathic doctors who are leading the profession in pediatric health. I feel pediatric care is the foundation of preventative medicine. By helping families adopt healthy habits, we can
help prevent disease and health problems.
In addition to working with the pediatric population, I also enjoy working with women's health, mental health, digestive concerns, stress management and weight loss. I have obtained additional training and am certified in cosmetic acupuncture.
I am honoured to be your naturopathic intern and am looking forward to helping some of you in your healthcare needs.
Dr. Ali Golozar-Basiri, ND
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.
