“The best part of each day is hearing how lives are improved from Naturopathic Medicine. Less pain, better energy, improved mood, calm digestion, enhanced sleep etc are all possible with the right treatment plan. My two main goals as a doctor are to help people feel better and to understand WHY they have health issues as understanding the WHY helps with prevention.” Dr. Lisa Polinsky
Dr. Lisa Polinsky grew up in Victoria, attended UVIC and obtained her naturopathic medical degree from the National University of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon ‘99. She completed a postgraduate residency and practiced for three years in Oregon before returning to join Sage Clinic in ‘02.
Her UVIC degree in Psychology and prior career in Human Resources helped fuel her interest in workplace wellness and corporate presentations.
Dr. Polinsky holds a special interest for: women’s health issues (menopause, peri-menopause, PMS, infertility, and perinatal care, PP depression); hormone imbalances (adrenal and thyroid issues); nervous system issues (depression, insomnia, mood disorders, anxiety, stress); digestive imbalances (IBS, Crohn’s, leaky gut/malabsorption, anemia, food sensitivities); and autoimmune conditions (RA, thyroiditis, MS, fibromyalgia). She sees her role as coach and guide in helping others achieve a higher state of health.
In 2017, Dr. Polinsky trained under Dr. William Walsh (author of Nutrient Power) of the Walsh Research Institute and is at the leading edge of doctors in Canada offering this approach for mental health concerns. Dr. Walsh teaches that nutrient imbalances can be a cause underlying anxiety, depression and other mental health issues.
Dr. Polinsky embraces Herbal Medicine, Homeopathy, Biotherapeutic Drainage (a European-based treatment), Clinical Nutrition, EAV food sensitivity evaluations and Microcurrent therapy in her practice.
Dr. Polinsky believes that health is achieved through a balance of the physical combined with emotional and spiritual health. Her personal philosophy connects to the works of Eckhardt Tolle The Power of Now, A New Earth, and Miguel Ruiz The Four Agreements.
Dr. Polinsky is available for corporate wellness presentations and in-house ‘lunch and learn’ events. She has appeared on TV, written many articles and enjoyed several years as a regular guest on CFAX radio.
Dr. Lisa Polinsky balances her career with yoga, meditation and hiking with family amidst the beauty of Vancouver Island parks and beaches. Having practiced now for 19 years, she maintains a true passion for naturopathic medicine.
