A Personal Note from Richard
I enjoy a family practice, where I apply the tools of naturopathy from both an evidenced based and bio-energetic perspective. My goal in applying the art and practice of naturopathy to the treatment of the individual, is to blend evidence and intuition, bio-chemistry and bio-energetics, Reason and Nature. I aim to bring a balanced approach to my practise and to meet the needs of my patients. This means working with you and all of your health care providers.
Outside of my clinical practice, I am a passionate teacher and lecturer. Since moving to London in 2009, I have hosted a number of workshops and lectures pertaining to naturopathic healthcare and plant medicines. Apart from my work as an ND I am also inspired by travel, permaculture principles, deep nature connection, hockey and my family.
Dr. Vuksinic was influenced by the rhythms of a holistic lifestyle at an early age. After graduating with an honours B.A. from McMaster University in 1999, Dr. Vuksinic traveled extensively throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Central America. These travels were a self-directed education in the healing practices and philosophies of various traditional cultures. His travels ignited a passion to blend, in his own healing practice, the wisdom of traditional medicine with the scientific foundation of western medicine. In 2005, this led Dr. V to the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto, Ontario, where he graduated as a doctor of Naturopathic Medicine. As part of a 4-year program at CCNM he completed a 1-year internship at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic in Toronto. He also gained inspiration in working with Natural Doctors International, an NGO that brings free Naturopathic health care to under-served communities in Nicaragua (2008 & 2009). In practice, he employs Herbal, Homeopathic, Auricular and Traditional Chinese Medicine, in combination with nutritional and lifestyle counseling, to address the full dynamic of individualized healthcare: the mental, emotional and physical.
Dr. Vuksinic is a registered naturopathic doctor in good standing with the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors and the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors.
