Naturopathic Doctor in Windsor-Essex
Meet Dr. Kaitlin Martinello, ND
I always get asked, “what inspired you to become a Naturopathic Doctor?”. My answer always starts with Dr. Quinn, Medicine Women! It may seem cliché, but I knew at a very young age that I wanted to become a doctor, just like Jane Seymour in the TV show. I would watch mesmerized as the strong, intelligent woman in a time when female doctors were looked on in doubt would use her wit, empathy and healing training to save lives. My family took notice, even giving me the nick-name “Dr. K” which they still use to this day. Throughout my schooling, I worked hard, persevered, always dreaming of the day I could too make a difference in people’s lives, just like Dr. Quinn.
It was not until I was completing my undergraduate degree and preparing for life after University that I first became introduced to naturopathic medicine through a family member. I attended a visit with them to their naturopathic doctor’s office. I sat there quietly as the doctor and my loved one discussed her progress. The NDs confidence, demeanor, and approach to health were exactly like what I had idealized in that TV show long ago, and I instantly knew “that this was the type of doctor I wanted to be”.
After another four years schooling, I completed my naturopathic medical training and graduated with a Degree in Naturopathy. I had done it! I could now share my wealth of knowledge of natural medicine with those who needed my help. From the very first patient encounter, my practice mandate has been to treat the entire person, not just their symptoms and get to the root cause of their disease state with the goal of improving their overall health and wellbeing through natural medicine.
