Meghan Crewson - Waterdown Clinic

MEGHAN CREWSON

During an appointment, you can expect a listening ear while I conduct a detailed health history and physical assessment. I take a whole-body perspective as I search for the root cause of your concern. Understanding the body, and how each aspect of the body interconnects plays an important role. My therapeutic approach to treatment uses gentle musculoskeletal techniques, cranial sacral therapy, visceral manipulation and a strong understanding of biomechanics. I strive to help patients understand their treatment plan, so they can play an active role in their recovery.

It is important to wear comfortable clothing that allows for movement during the assessment and treatment. I commonly treat digestive issues, migraines/headaches, pregnancy, postpartum moms, infants, and children. That being said I enjoy that my job can address and be inclusive of all humans, everyone is welcome. When I am not working, I am staying active by playing soccer or practicing yoga. I love spending time outdoors and trying new restaurants with friends.

Nancy Britton - Waterdown Clinic

NANCY BRITTON

EDS Technician, Sensitivity Testing

Food and environmental sensitivities can have a dramatic impact on overall health. Identifying and eliminating them can be a powerful step on your healing path. EDS is painless, non-invasive, and accurate. EDS measures both histamine and non-histamine responses to substances which many tests are not able to do. Non-histamine responses are particularly important and are directly related to symptoms such as bloating, fatigue and headaches.

Nancy Britton brings many years of experience as an advanced EDS technician to the Waterdown Clinic where she has helped to customized this testing to detect food sensitivities, the presence of candida, parasites, bacteria and viruses, exposure to heavy metals, imbalance of hormones, environmental exposures and organ stress or weakness.

Please call the office at 905-690-9151 to book an appointment.

Chantal Mulhern - Waterdown Clinic

CHANTAL MULHERN

I began experiencing challenges with my health several years ago which led to my passion for “clean eating” and my love for natural medicine. Through this experience, I realized that in order to reach optimal health and wellness our mind, body and spirit must be in balance. When my own health improved, I knew I had something to share and wanted to help others feel more like themselves, just as I had done.

I hold a designation as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and I am also a certified Live Blood Analyst (darkfield microscopy) with Microcell Sciences Inc.

Cassie Irwin - Waterdown Clinic

CASSIE IRWIN

I help heart-centred women quell exhaustion, anxiety, and pain so they can wield their superpowers while feeling calm, productive, and aligned.

Working through my own challenges with feeling burnt out, fatigued and not my happiest self, I knew that I wanted to show women how they can reclaim their health so they can do more of what they love. I believe in whole-person healing, and that’s why I listen carefully to your story. We work through mental-emotional burdens and use natural therapies to support the mind, body and spirit.

Maryellen Tedeschi - Waterdown Clinic

MARYELLEN TEDESCHI

Your health is my priority.

As a Naturopathic Doctor, my approach to health care is one that is naturally-focused and research-driven. I am passionate about empowering you to make informed decisions about your health. Your symptoms are part of a bigger picture. Asking critical questions, digging deeper, and utilizing the appropriate assessments help us to find the answers you’ve been longing for. I use a combination of clinical nutrition, supplementation (including vitamin injections), custom-compounded solutions (including bio-identical hormone therapy and natural desiccated thyroid), mind-body support, and acupuncture as part of your patient-centered treatment plan. The magic happens when we work together as a team to address your health goals, both short and long-term.
