Dr. Jolyn Starling. Naturopathic Doctor
Dr. Jolyn Starling is a Naturopathic Physician who practices holistically to help her patients achieve physical, mental and emotional balance. It is her goal to treat the underlying cause of disease and not just address symptoms. As a practitioner she creates a personalized treatment plan for each patient to help them regain balance and health in their lives. She believes there is no greater honor or privilege than facilitating the process of healing; to bear witness, to reach out a hand, and to share the burden for someone who is suffering.
Her interest in integrative healthcare developed while working with Mother Theresa’s orphanage for disabled children and palliative care hospital in India. It was here that she learned how an integrative, open approach to healthcare is what best serves the patient, their families, and their community.
In her home-based practice, she uses nutrition, botanical medicine, lifestyle counselling, pharmaceuticals, and physical therapies to help her patients attain optimal health and wellness. In her practice, she uses comprehensive assessment tools and procedures, including complete physical exam, appropriate lab testing, and family history to establish causes of imbalance. She strongly believes that providing a compassionate and safe place to be heard from is an important part of the healing process which is why she has chosen to work from her home, rather than the larger clinics she once worked in.
Dr. Jolyn Starling holds a doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine, a Bachelor of Science degree in biology, and is licensed to prescribe pharmaceutical drugs. She is committed to providing the highest quality care for her patients and continues to develop knowledge in her field by regularly attending seminars across Canada and the US. Dr. Starling has been practicing in Victoria, BC since she graduated in 2009 after completing 8 years of education in order to obtain her certification.
