Biography

Dr. Parsi is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor practicing in Toronto. She focuses her naturopathic practice on increasing lifespan, health span (quality of life), and delaying the onset of chronic disease. Depending on the patient’s goals and unique circumstances, Dr. Parsi uses a combination of clinical nutrition, exercise instruction, lifestyle counseling (including techniques to improve sleep and increase stress tolerance), acupuncture, herbal medicine, and supplements to improve well-being and optimize health. Dr. Parsi treats a variety of conditions including but not limited to digestive symptoms, anxiety, insomnia, menstrual irregularities, sports injuries, infertility, and weight loss. Dr. Parsi’s approach involves taking a thorough assessment, determining the root cause of the condition, and treating patients in the least invasive way to reverse and/or prevent disease. Each treatment plan is individually tailored and selected based on evidence-based medicine, traditional natural therapies, clinical experience, and patient preference. Treatment also consists of educating patients on becoming independent in the management of their health. Dr. Parsi earned her Naturopathic degree from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine and holds a Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Sciences, English Literature, and Sociology, and a Master’s degree in Rehabilitation Sciences from McGill University. Dr. Parsi has also completed additional training in Intravenous Therapy and is licensed to prescribe certain pharmaceuticals including desiccated thyroid and bio-identical hormones in Ontario. Dr. Parsi also has a special interest in weight training for management of age-related muscle and bone loss and in the rehabilitation of sports injuries. She has participated in multiple strength training seminars and is a certified sports nutritionist.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

I believe that I am compassionate, I provide patients with a variety of options to address their needs, and I emphasize patient education so they can easily understand complex health concerns. I also stay up-to-date and rely on the latest scientific medical evidence to inform my practice

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

Clinical nutrition, exercise instruction, lifestyle counseling (including techniques to improve sleep and increase stress tolerance), herbal medicine & supplements.

What are you proud of in your practice?

I'm proud of my approach with patients which emphasizes compassion and understanding. Patient education is also invaluable to me and drives my treatment process. I am also proud that I aim to be as thorough as possible when treating a case.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

- I enjoy treating all cases because my practice constantly involves creating an individualized treatment plan which takes creativity and research. However, there are typically two types of cases I enjoy treating the most: infertility (or supporting patients in the process of becoming pregnant) and improving body weight composition/addressing age-related bone and muscle loss. - I enjoy helping patients with fertility partly because I love studying the research on fertility treatment and because more couples than ever are in need of assistance with conceiving. There's also the added benefit of being rewarded by the couple's elation that they are able to begin the special journey of starting a family. - When helping patients with improving body weight composition or treating age-related bone and muscle loss, the enjoyment I get comes from coaching the patient one-on-one with weight training. I love the challenge of having to modify and tailor the exercises based on their goals and limitations. It is also one of the most rewarding because the intervention is effective and provides additional benefits including improved energy and function.
