Dr. Mistry entered the field of naturopathic medicine because she believes that diet and lifestyle are key factors in a comprehensive approach to health. Her educational journey began with an Honours B.Sc in Biology and Pharmacology from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. After graduating, she worked in the pharmaceutical industry for several years, however, she had an inner desire seeking more in her career. She went on to pursue a Master’s in Biomedical Technology at the University of Calgary. Dr. Mistry worked as a research associate at the University of Guelph, followed by several years as a policy analyst at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, before finding her true calling in Naturopathic Medicine. Dr. Mistry attended the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in New Westminster, BC where she obtained her doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine.
After Dr. Mistry’s extensive education and diverse work experiences, her knowledge of the human body now extends to the connection between the mind and body. She believes that in order to treat any condition, the body must be viewed as a whole and harmony must exist between the various parts to achieve optimal health. Especially in modern society, we are constantly subjected to considerable stress, which creates imbalances in the body and leads to the increasing prevalence of chronic disease. Dr. Mistry’s goal is to identify the root causes of disease and work to lower inflammation in the body to restore health. She is known for her strong communications skills and her personable and compassionate nature. She is a regular contributor to a local Vancouver-based health TV show called “Run With It” and has been interviewed on local radio shows.
Dr. Mistry is committed to personal development, self-care, and building connection through community. While she enjoys cooking and is a foodie at heart, she lives an active lifestyle, which includes strength training, swimming, and yoga. Living on the west coast, she finds her greatest sense of peace comes from spending quiet moments in the majestic natural beauty of British Columbia.
