ALL ABOUT ME
With a love for all things health and fitness Dr. Celeste Borghese began her journey to becoming a Naturopathic Doctor by obtaining her Kinesiology degree at the University of Guelph Humber where she studied the body and human movement. She then went on to complete an additional 4 years at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine to obtain her degree in Naturopathy.
APPROACH TO CARE
As a Naturopathic Doctor Celeste takes a patient-centred approach by allowing you to be fully involved in the process. Dr. Borghese takes the time to get to know the patient in all aspects of life in order to create a treatment plan that is designed to work with you and meet every individual concern. Dr. Borghese aims to uncover the root cause of illness through lab work, patient symptoms, and physical examination. She provides individualized treatments that may include supplements, botanicals (herbal formulations), acupuncture, and/ or targeted nutrition and exercise plans when indicated, to help you reach your health goals. She believes that the foundation to good health is a balanced diet, exercise, restorative sleep and stress management.
Dr. Borghese has a special interest in skin conditions/ concerns, gut health, hormonal imbalances, stress management, weight loss, thyroid health.
WHY I WANTED TO BE A NATUROPATHIC DOCTOR
“I struggled with adult onset cystic acne for most of my undergraduate years and it was naturopathic medicine that gave me my life back. Despite being in a program that was all about fitness I was super unhealthy, my priorities were completely getting through school no mater what that meant. I neglected sleep, ate what I wanted, had no concept of how to manage my time or deal with stress and this took a huge toll on my body and mental health. The best thing I could have done was go see a Naturopathic Doctor myself (which is what introduced me to this field), this truly gave me my confidence and my life back. I made so many positive changes that will stick with me forever, all I want to do is share everything I have learned and pay it forward by helping others who are struggling. If I can impact and make even a small difference in someones life I know I did my job.”
Outside of seeing patients, Dr. Borghese loves to spend time with family and friends, working out, going for dinners, walks in nature, and shopping! The ultimate night in would be a good skin care routine, the bachelor and a good dairy free, gluten free chocolate chip cookie.
