Dr. Aoife Earls MSc, ND
Hi, I’m Aoife (pronounced “ee-fa”, it’s Gaelic) Earls. What led me to naturopathic medicine was actually a form of eczema caused by celiac disease, and after completing my masters in neuroscience and something called PNI (psychoneuroimmunology, or how the mind-body-immune system are involved in health), I was looking for answers. I went down a long road with herbal medicine, meditation, therapy, and I’m thankful to say I can keep my chronic inflammation at bay with naturopathy. I feel passionate to share my knowledge on mind-body healing with others.
I lecture at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine and prepare future naturopaths in the language of psychology, and teach on the topics of grief, sustainable self-care, creativity and play for burnout and fatigue in Canada and Australia. I’m also a licensed grief group facilitator. I write for many publications online; the Canadian Journal of Naturopathic Medicine, Naturopathic Publications and Integrative Health Practitioners. I’ve been told it’s like seeing a therapist and doctor all in one; my hope is that you will learn all you can about yourself so you can live a meaningful and joyful life.
I enjoy treating conditions where the mind and body meet, and supporting those issues, including burnout and IBS, skin disorders and depression, grief and insomnia, challenging menstrual periods and long-term stress. I like using a combination of lifestyle changes and herbal medicine to facilitate those changes. I like to throw in a little meditation too!
In my spare time, you’ll find me walking trails, heading to local wineries, or bike riding with my family.
