Tehseen Meghji is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor and Birth Doula serving Toronto, Ontario.
In my practice I focus on general family medicine and preventative care.
I also have a special interest in:
My goal is to walk alongside my patients through their healing journeys and to provide tools that enable them to feel empowered and knowledgeable about their health.
I value building a trusting patient-practitioner relationship where patients feel heard and can comfortably express their concerns.
My passion lies in using the healing power of nature to promote harmony, awareness and balance within the body. Integrating the pieces of a patient’s unique story with a supportive environment and evidence based medicine, creates a picture of optimal health, well-being and individualized care.
Growing up I was fascinated in the workings of the human body and healthcare, which led me to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Biological Science from the University of Calgary. It was the philosophy of Naturopathic Medicine that drew me to the profession. I was inspired by the doctor as teacher approach and the innate ability of the body to heal itself.
In 2008, I moved to Toronto to attend the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) to learn about how to address the root cause of disease. It was through Naturopathic Medicine that I began my own healing journey and addressed many of my personal health concerns and goals. The phrase “mind of a doctor, heart of a healer” still rings true to me today.
During my clinical residency at CCNM, I spent over 1500 hours treating patients with a wide variety of health concerns at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic. I also had the privilege of providing care at the Anishnawbe Health Clinic and the Sherbourne Community Health Centre serving the Aboriginal and LGBTQ communities, respectively.
In 2011, I completed Doula training for Naturopathic Doctors and also received additional training in Homeopathy in India. After completing a medical internship in Haiti in 2012, my passion for community medicine flourished.
I strongly believe that naturopathic care and health education should be available and affordable to all individuals. I strive to increase the accessibility of Naturopathic Medicine by providing community wellness seminars and community care to the public.
During my free time you can find me admiring nature, exploring my cooking talent with healthy recipes, professionally singing Bollywood music at community events, reading self-development books, and spending time with my supportive husband and family. I am also fluent in Hindi and Kutchi.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to book an appointment. I look forward to seeing where your healing journey takes us together!
