Dr Jodie MacDonald

Dr Jodie is a Holistic Practitioner who specializes in helping those with chronic illnesses. Dr Jodie received her doctorate from Kingdom College of Natural Health in 2013. Since then she has researched and studied many modalities to help those who suffer from debilitating conditions. Dr Jodie wrote her dissertation on the effects of guided meditation for the pain of Lyme disease.

Dr Jodie has several modalities, which include the use of crystals, energy work, nutrition, herbs and more that help the body advance to better health.

Dr Jodie started on this path because she too suffered from Cancer, migraines and debilitating pains in her lower abdominal area that no one could figure out and didn’t know how to fix. The cancer was cervical and they punched it out twice causing her to hemorrhage a lot both times.

Dr Jodie’s family has suffered with diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s and many forms of cancer. She has witnessed it all her life. She wants to help people because at the time she was unable to relieve the suffering of her family and friends. Dr Jodie wants to make the difference and be able to say, “I can help you, to feel better and to be better”.

Having done research, Dr Jodie understands that each person is an individual and that all people should not be treated the same. Finding the reason or root cause of the clients pain and suffering or their reason for depression or the reason the weight loss is slow, and finding that place where cancer started or Lyme infected the client. Dr Jodie believes that you don’t have to suffer; you can live an inspiring life.

Dr Jodie has put together programs that can help the public. She has learned how to help the human body grow and heal. She can assist in helping you be at peace. These programs have been put together to educate the client on their illness, their body and what they can do to make it better. Dr Jodie’s job is to make the client feel heard and understood, to provide them with a specific plan for their specific needs.
