Dr. Kali Simmonds
Bachelor of Science Degree, University of Prince Edward Island
Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, CCNM, Toronto, ON
My practice has naturally evolved to include a lot of hypothyroidism, perimenopause, menopause, digestive conditions, cancer, depression, anxiety, autoimmune conditions, skin problems and weight loss. I strive to teach, empower and encourage my patients to advocate for themselves.
I practiced in a multidisciplinary clinic in Toronto with MDs, chiropractors, and massage therapists for a year before returning home. I have been in private practice and have owned The Root Cellar for 20 years. As children we would shop there with our Mom who shaped my interpretation of health and made me aware that Naturopathic Doctors existed. I am grateful to be able to apply my knowledge to my own health and that of my family. For 12 seasons I have cohosted a health show Au Natural on Eastlink Community TV with Lana. My husband Pat and I have 6 children and for that reason I am very family focused at this stage and only practice part time. I spend much time on the road in hockey rinks, gymnastics academies and soccer fields. It is hard not to share my naturopathic tips in every day life. I am interested in politics because I think there needs to be a shift from our sick care system to one that also truly fosters health. In another life, I may have worked in architecture or interior design. Amidst a hectic schedule, I cherish with family and friends.

Dr. Nara Simmonds
Bachelor of Science Degree, University of Prince Edward Island
Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine CCNM, Toronto, ON.
Health optimization, Thyroid, Stress management, Mental health, Pregnancy and Postpartum Health, Menopause, Breast Health
I’ve worked for 20 years in the natural food and supplements business. While completing my science degree and working at the Root Cellar, I met many patients who were helped through my sister’s naturopathic practice and it inspired me to further my education and become an ND. Prior to becoming an ND, I took on the role of manager at The Root Cellar and again in 2016 I returned to manage while also maintaining a part-time practice. It’s by no surprise then, that one of my favourite things to do while travelling is exploring other natural food stores. I’m passionate about understanding how our bodies work and respond to our ever-changing environment and how to translate that into helping people live their best lives. I love to nerd out about nutritional biochemistry, thanks to my high school chemistry teacher who made me love chemistry early on. I do what I do because of my beautiful mother. I am grateful for my 2 boys and my partner who teach me every day how to be a better teacher. My other loves: Coffee, rebounding on my Bellicon, travelling, hiking, photography, and being with the people I love.
