Dr. Michela Nelson
Dr. Michela S. Nelson, BSc, ND is a born and raised Calgarian who graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Waterloo, in Waterloo, Ontario. She went on to complete the 4-years of naturopathic medical training at Sonoran University of Health Sciences in Tempe, AZ, where she also began her career as a naturopathic doctor upon graduation. Dr. Nelson later moved back to Calgary to establish her career closer to family.
Dr. Nelson first became exposed to alternative medicine after she started to experience chronic pain due to a previous injury. She was hopeful that there was something else out there that could help alleviate her pain other than daily opioid medication, which came with several side effects and only addressed her symptoms. Thankfully, she was able to find lasting relief through natural measures by addressing the root cause of her issues, no longer requiring pain medication, and thus began her journey to her own improved health, and the discovery of her passion towards supporting the body to heal naturally.
Dr. Nelson brings an evidence based approach to naturopathic medicine. Her treatments are naturally focused and highly individualized. She is committed to offering timely access to quality medical care and routinely collaborates with other health care providers, seeking to improve the quality of healthcare available to all Albertans.
Dr. Nelson is a member of the College of Naturopathic Doctors of Alberta, the Alberta Association of Naturopathic Doctors and the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors.
