Dr. Peddle enjoys working with couples to enhance their fertility and to support those undergoing fertility treatments (IUI and IVF). A large part of her practice involves working with couples to achieve optimal health and fertility, to balance women’s hormonal cycles and to support the assisted conception process and optimize its success. Dr. Peddle also has great success treating digestive complaints and food sensitivities. Simple dietary and lifestyle changes and supplements can yield excellent results.
While volunteering with a medical team in Guatemala in 2004, Dr. Peddle first realized that she wanted to pursue a career as a Naturopathic Doctor. During this trip she assisted the midwife, medical doctors and nurses and conducted triage of the patients. Despite the physical and emotional challenges she faced every day in dealing with the culture shock and the poverty and disease of the patients, Dr. Peddle felt a deep sense of joy and fulfillment in her work.
Dr. Peddle is committed to facilitating a stable, empowering and supportive environment for her patients. She considers the larger issues surrounding health and wellness, such as the impact that lifestyle, emotion and stress can have on the development and progression of disease and understands that health is so much more than just the absence of an illness.
