Nine years ago, I was looking for answers.
My husband and I were trying to have a baby, and having nothing but problems. We had experienced repeated miscarriages and not only did no one have a reason why, but it seemed like no one was willing to it try and it figure out. We were just told to keep trying.
We were feeling helpless and powerless.
That was when I decided that doing nothing wasn’t an option. A friend recommended that I see a naturopathic doctor and suddenly I found myself with someone caring, who made me feel respected and heard. It was through her that we discovered the likely cause of our fertility issues, and I am grateful every day since that we have gone on to have three beautiful daughters. I have spent most of my professional career in healthcare, but it was that experience that opened my eyes to the possibilities of naturopathic medicine and I vowed I would spend the rest of my life helping others in the same way I was helped.
Here is what you need to know about me:

As a family we have been working with Dr. Ghent for the past few years. Dr. Ghent’s amazing way with children and her thorough approach has been key to our family. Often going out of her way to provide additional resources and management ideas that work for us. It’s nice to finally find a Dr. with heart.
Dr. Ghent is an amazing doctor! She is a wealth of information and she always provides me with great unbiased information. She is great with kids too!
Dr. Ghent has a wonderful bedside manner and is extremely knowledgeable. She offers many different techniques from deep breathing/relaxing to acupuncture and massage. She treats every person as a individual with unique circumstances. She had a plan of care for me and was very flexible with me from appointment to appointment, depending on my needs at that time. She uses humor and is sensitive to individual vulnerabilities. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Dr. Ghent and I would absolutely 110% recommend her as your naturopath. I guarantee you will not be disappointed . I am back on track and give Dr. Ghent a lot of credit for this! Thanks!
Dr.Ghent is the most wonderful person and Naturopathic Doctor that I have ever encountered. After years of battling with medical doctors and visit after visit with many tears, lots of anger, and the feeling of not being heard, I came across the number for Dr.Ghent. Within an hour of meeting each other, I felt so much ease and so much compassion. In that very same appointment I detailed what I had been trying to figure out for years, and she made the diagnosis right away, and was spot on. I can't be more grateful and thankful for her. I struggled for years with infertility and other reproductive issues, and within 6 months of working with Dr.Ghent my husband and I are happy to say we have a baby on the way! We are forever thankful for all her hard work, and can't wait to continue on this journey with her.
