Who we are

Welcome to Optimal Health Naturopathic and Wellness Clinic! Our clinic focuses on outstanding service and care of our patients. As a naturopathic physician who has been practising for over sixteen years, my vision was to build a modern, innovative clinic which would meet all the individual needs of my patients.

Jennifer Chen, BSc, ND
Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine
Certified NMT Practitioner
Founder of Optimal Health Naturopathic & Wellness Clinic

After graduating from McMaster University with a Bachelor of Science in Honours Biology, I completed the intensive four-year naturopathic medicine program at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, where I earned my Doctoral Diploma in Naturopathic Medicine in 1999.

As a naturopathic doctor, I work closely with medical doctors/specialists, chiropractors, massage therapists and other holistic healthcare practitioners to achieve the best possible care for our patients.

Although I treat a wide variety of chronic ailments in patients of all ages, many of my patients present with allergies and allergy-related conditions. My practice focuses on digestive system support, immune system modulation, hormonal-balancing and stress management. Although I use the conventional naturopathic therapies, I am also specially trained and certified in Neuromodulation Technique (NMT), Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture (FRA) and Mesotherapy. I frequently continue to attend seminars and workshops to further advance my knowledge in naturopathic medicine so that I can provide my patients with the best healthcare possible. I believe that every person has an amazing, inherent ability to heal and my goal is to guide the patient in their journey to healing.

I have written many articles for a variety of publications, including the Beach Metro and Naturopathic Doctor News & Review. I have also given talks to different organizations and corporations on issues related to Naturopathic Medicine. Furthermore, I have a passion for teaching and have taught courses in Allergies and Pediatric Nutrition at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition (CSNN).

I am fully licensed and registered with the Board of Directors of Drugless Therapy – Naturopathy (BDDT-N). I am also a member in good standing with the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (OAND), the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND), the Canadian Society of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture (CSCMA), and the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB).
