The Full Story: Dr. Avni Dalal, ND
Welcome! I'm Dr. Avni Dalal, a passionate and dedicated naturopathic doctor committed to empowering individuals on their journey to optimal health. My own transformative experience with PCOS and Hashimoto's hypothyroidism diagnoses ignited my desire to practice medicine in a way that was inclusive and didn't feel dismissive.
Navigating PCOS: A Personal Story
Receiving a PCOS diagnosis was a turning point in my life. I know firsthand the confusion, frustration, and sometimes isolation that can accompany such a diagnosis. My journey with PCOS has been a catalyst for my commitment to helping others facing similar health challenges. I believe in a personalized, patient-centered approach that not only addresses symptoms but explores the underlying factors contributing to imbalances.
A Holistic Approach to Wellness:
As a naturopathic doctor, I am dedicated to providing inclusive and compassionate care. I believe that health is a dynamic interplay of various factors, and I work collaboratively with my patients to uncover and address the root causes of their health concerns. My approach is grounded in evidence-based natural therapies, lifestyle modifications, and a deep understanding of the interconnectedness of the body's systems.
More About Me:
From an early age, I felt connected to medicine and community. I was fortunate enough to be exposed to homeopathy and Ayurveda from my family during visits to India. While pursuing my undergraduate degree in psychology in a pre-medicine track, my interest piqued in community health, health policy, and nutrition. This yearning for knowledge while also seeking answers for my own health issues led me to naturopathic medicine, where I get to combine traditional practices and my love for naturopathy with evidence-based medicine through a holistic view.
When I’m not in the office, I enjoy traveling, cooking, dancing, painting, taking care of my plants, and spending time with my cat (Gobi). My own cultural experiences and experiences of being in the LGBTQ+ community continue to foster my curiosity in learning more about the history and practices of people all around the world.
