KTown & Friends: Dr. Mary Peric
After years suffering with various symptoms due to stress, poor digestion and hormonal imbalances, Mary was thrilled to discover naturopathic medicine and utilize its therapies to treat the root cause of her symptoms. These therapies included but weren’t limited to improving her dietary choices, lifestyle changes and various tools including acupuncture for stress management to address whole body health. By personally experiencing the benefits that simple yet powerful changes can make to one’s health, Mary gained a renewed appreciation for the power and healing capacity of the human body, when it is properly supported with all the necessary tools.
As a naturopathic doctor, Mary is passionate about making healthy lifestyle choices for her family and encourages her patients to do the same. She focuses her practice on understanding each patient’s unique health story, identifying potential patterns of imbalance and root cause of disease and developing a customized treatment plan to achieve their individual short and long term health goals. Mary truly enjoys helping her patients realize their potential for health and supporting them through their journey to recovery and health optimization.
She has a special interest in helping children and adults with digestive health concerns as well as helping women with their reproductive and hormonal health. Having given birth (in her home!) to her two daughters and having become a lactation educator, she has further become very passionate about making the best possible choices for achieving and maintaining a healthy pregnancy, empowering labour & delivery, a gentle, healing transition into the postpartum period and ensuring that children reach their optimal potential for growth and development.
When she is not with her patients, Mary is sharing her passion for naturopathic medicine with family, friends and those who gather at the various talks and seminars hosted within the Hamilton community. She loves to educate others on complementary healthcare options (as there are many!) and share her personal and clinical experiences as a naturopathic doctor, wife and mother. She does her to best to practice what she preaches in living a balanced life, which includes a passion for spending quality time with family and friends, preparing healthy and delicious meals and staying active!
Mary will be sharing her passion and knowledge regarding natural options and potential strategies with our Kindertown Community through the KTown Blog. You can also find Mary at the Waterdown Clinic of Functional and Integrative Medicine at www.waterdownclinic.com if you would like to meet her one-on-one!
Dr. Mary Peric is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor (ND), Lactation Educator and mother to a Kindertown child!
