Testimonials

Dr. Mélanie Robinson


"I first started seeing Dr. Mélanie Robinson eight months ago, following a long trial of medical appointments. I turned to naturopathy because after waiting a year for a diagnosis of a liver syndrome, I was essentially told that my options were non-existent when it came to managing the nightmare list of symptoms I was experiencing. Dr. Robinson blew me away when I came to see her for my first appointment. She took the time to research the rare disease and blew me out the water with what she knew and her ideas for helping to treat my pain. I soon found out that Dr. Robinson isn't only incredibly thorough; she is also one of the kindest people I have ever met. She always makes me feel comfortable to ask her any question and she is always happy to explain what is going on with my body and why she is choosing a specific method of treatment.
Dr. Mélanie Robinson

I am happy to report that since I have started seeing Dr. Robinson my symptoms are essentially gone. When I go in for check-ups with my specialists, they are blown away at the progress I have made. They almost didn't believe me when I told them it was all thanks to completely natural remedies that were prescribed by Dr. Robinson. In many ways, I feel like I owe so much to Dr. Robinson for helping me so much. When I think back to my health a year ago, I can't believe how far I have come. I tried naturopathy because I was curious and I felt as though I had run out of options. Today, I am a huge advocate for Naturopathic Medicine. I have referred many of my friends and family to Dr. Robinson, and I will continue to do so.”

"I cannot give enough praise for Dr. Robinson! I have suffered with migraines since I was in grade 3 and have tried many different approaches without any of them offering me any relief. Dr. Robinson however, has found a breakthrough for me! I do still get migraines (flashes of light in my vision), but without the headache! I know it sounds impossible- a migraine without a headache! This means that I am now able to function with a migraine instead of being home in bed for the whole day! This has changed my life and my family's life. Thank you so much Dr. Robinson!!!"

"We first started seeing Dr. Robinson seven months ago. My 2 children had continually been on antibiotics throughout the winter. I felt very helpless. I wasn't given any advice on ways to strengthen my children's immune system- just handed another prescription after each visit. I turned to Naturopathy because I needed to find a way to keep my children healthy. I cannot believe the positive change in my children since our first visit. They have an appetite, they are sleeping better, they're faces have regained color, and they've gone almost all winter needing just one prescription of antibiotics.

Our youngest son was diagnosed with autism last year. Dr. Robinson has been such a great help and support for our family. With her knowledge on autism, we were able to get our son on the right supplements to help with his gut health and behavior. Now that he is feeling better, his speech is improving and he is enjoying school

Dr. Robinson has also been looking after myself. I felt I had no energy to keep up with my children, brain fog, and always feeling tired from stress. I was also feeling bloated and simply unhealthy. Dr. Robinson quickly put me on some Adrenal Support and other supplements to help me with my energy levels. She also suggested ways to modify my diet. Since then, I feel like I have my energy back. My stomach health is also doing a lot better.

Looking back at our health seven month ago, it is amazing to see the positive changes in our family. It is all thanks to Dr. Robinson. We all look forward to our monthly appointments with her. Dr. Robinson is always very kind, positive, empathetic and knowledgeable. We appreciate her help so much!"

“When I met Dr. Mélanie Robinson, for the first time my blood results were explained to me and she pointed out the optimal ranges to aim for. I have always been in the accepted medical range, so my previous doctors have just told me my blood results were fine. But yet I didn't feel fine, I was always tired despite getting 8-10 hrs / night, eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly. Dr. Robinson encouraged my questions, answered them and even asked me questions. I felt important, like she really cared and wasn't in a hurry to get to the next patient. My family and I have been seeing Dr. Robinson regularly for 1 year and I look forward to our visits. Dr. Robinson is an empathetic and kind Doctor who has the knowledge to empower you to improve your health and change your life!”

"I started seeing Dr. Robinson in June 2012. I was happy with how she looks at the big picture not just treating the symptoms. It is nice to have someone so knowledgeable and supportive while I go through my journey to better health. Dr. Robinson is passionate about what she does and has been an excellent resource for me over the past year. I look forward to having her as my ND for many years to come."

“For what seemed like forever, I was always feeling tired, with brain fog, recovering from one cold or flu after another, and dealing with constant stomach and body aches! These symptoms seemed to worsen one year after having a baby, just after I returned to full-time work.

I visited my family doctor and had an assortment of blood tests that resulted in finding nothing out of the ordinary. Still, I knew something still was not right. I turned to Dr. Robinson to give Naturopathic Medicine a try.

At my first visit, Dr. Robinson identified some potential issues based on my recent blood tests and list of symptoms - my iron and my cortisol levels were likely too low. I began taking a few supplements right away - iron, vitamin D and adrenal supports and decided to take a couple of further tests. These tests confirmed that my cortisol levels were too low - within burnout range! I also had a small buildup of candida and a number of food sensitivities. I began avoiding certain foods and took a couple of additional supplements to further support my adrenal glands and reduce the candida.

My first appointment with Dr Robinson was around 8 months ago and today I am feeling 100% better! A recent blood test confirmed that my iron levels are higher and within a healthier range. I have had one minor cold since then and tons more energy. I am also able to think clearer.

Today, I plan to see both my family doctor and Dr Robinson – keeping each informed about any appointments, tests and treatments prescribed by the other. I feel that relying on both traditional western medicine and naturopathic medicine will be complimentary and provide me and my family with the best overall medical services.

It really is amazing looking back at the significant positive changes to my health as a result of a few minor adjustments to my diet and supplements!”

After working with Dr. Robinson on my digestive health, I realized that I'd been living most of my teenage and adult life bloated and uncomfortable! I've had poor digestion since infancy along with a severe allergy to some foods, so with being a shift worker with a high stress job, I was getting sick a lot more that I should. After working with Dr. Robinson for only a few months and avoiding foods that I have sensitivities to, I've felt so much better! The random nausea and bad heart burn are gone, plus I have a lot more energy.

Dr. Robinson really looks at the whole picture, including lifestyle, family and personal goals. Plus she's always so cheerful and fun to be around, so my appointments just feel like I'm going to visit a friend!"

“I have had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Robinson for over a year now and am so pleased with her services! I had never been to a Naturopathic Doctor before and was so pleased with how much she helped me! Now, not only am I a returning patient, but my entire family including my two young children (ages 18 months and 4 1/2) are returning patients as well! We are so lucky to have Dr. Robinson as an ND for our family's needs. She has changed all of our lives for the better and we appreciate her help so much!”

“J'ai rencontré Dr Robinson pour mon garçon de 7 ans qui avait beaucoup d'ecxéma et des problèmes d'asthmes. Avec les homéopathies et des changements de styles de vie, les symptômes de mon fils se sont améliorés considérablement. Rare sont les moments où nous avons besoin de prendre sa pompe et nous n'utilisons plus de cortisone pour sa peau. Même les petits rhumes apparaissent de moins en moins souvent. Le plus surprenant reste pour moi la rapidité des changements observés. L'homéopathie est une vraie alternative pour les soins de santé, lorsqu'elle est prodiguée par quelqu'un de compétent.”
