Dr. Jessalyn Shamess works with patients to help clarify, understand and manage complex chronic diseases. During an appointment with Dr. Shamess, she will conduct a thorough health history, which may include an overview of all previous labs, physical exams and screening for underlying causes of the patient’s conditions. From there, she will discuss the patient’s specific goals for treatment and work together to establish a treatment plan. She uses a combination of nutritional supplements, herbs, pharmaceuticals,  and lifestyle counselling to develop a personalized treatment plan. This plan may include ozone therapy (autohemotherapy), IV nutrient therapy, and/or acupuncture to complement a patient's healing journey.

Dr. Shamess focuses on identifying the underlying causes of your condition and the common links between seemingly unrelated symptoms. In addition, with a background in public health, she is an education advocate, working to help empower patients in their health journey by unravelling the complexity of unknown conditions. She is particularly passionate about helping to make chronic conditions manageable and freeing patients to pursue their life
passions.

Dr. Shamess’s goal as a naturopathic doctor is to help patients optimize their health by using an evidence-informed approach to navigating complex chronic diseases. Ultimately, assisting patients not simply survive, but also thrive.

 

Outside clinical practice, Dr. Shamess can be found spending time with family and friends and exploring the vast outdoors. She enjoys skiing, mountain biking, surfing, and local cultural events.
