About Dr. Aparna Taylor, Msc, ND

Dr. Aparna Taylor, ND


Dr. Taylor holds a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in biology from Lakehead University, a Master of Science (MSc) in muscle physiology from the University of Calgary.  She completed all required coursework and partial research towards her Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in molecular neuroscience at the University of Calgary before deciding to follow her passion for holistic healing and obtaining her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, Ontario.  She brings to her patients a balance between conventional sciences, naturopathic philosophy and her personal journey as a yoga student and teacher, respecting the varied treatments that resonate with an individual on his or her healing path.

Searching for treatment options for a patient who approached Dr. Taylor for help, years after his initial tick bite, Dr. Taylor connected with the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS), a multidisciplinary organization dedicated to the diagnosis and appropriate treatment of Lyme and its associated diseases.  She became one of the first Canadian clinicians (MD or ND) to participate in the physicians’ training program (now ILADEF) with Dr. Richard Horowitz, MD, in Hyde Park (2008), and since completed another ILADEF physicians’ training program in California, USA, with Dr. Steve Harris, MD.

In the years since, much of her private practice has been devoted to assessing and treating patients who may have persistent tick borne illnesses, or other chronic conditions.  She continues attending and presenting at conferences and is interested in learning about how illnesses can influence multiple body systems, destabilize the immune system, and complicate diagnosis and symptoms.  She is a passionate educator and student, and has such, has been involved in Lyme awareness campaigns including a documentary screening for “Under Our Skin”, and spearheading the first Canadian ILADS fundamentals course for physicians, in Banff, Alberta.  She has volunteered for provincial organizations and ILADS committees in the past, and supports educational endeavours whenever possible.

Though much of her practice is focused on chronic illnesses, Dr. Taylor also treats patients who are seeking to achieve their health goals through Naturopathic Medicine.  She is passionate about team treatment approaches, guided by short and long-term goals of each patient while weighing the risk versus benefit of treatment options, all at each individual’s own pace.

Though she is not currently able to prescribe medications as an ND residing in Alberta, Dr. Taylor collaborates with medical doctors and prescribing pharmacists for patients who want the option of prescription medications, for her patients across Canada.  This in fact has increased awareness of the need for treatment amongst the medical community with positive outcomes.

Dr. Taylor is a member of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND), the College of Naturopathic Doctors of Alberta (CNDA), and the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS).  She is committed to learning from others and sharing her experiences to remain current and improve outcomes for her patients, as well as to achieving sustainable, long-term wellness.  She can be reached at https://www.drtaylornd.com/contact.
