Naturopathic Doctor Olja Keserovic effectively combines her knowledge in natural sciences with solid training in alternative therapies to create a nurturing, empowering, and healing experience for her patients. Upon obtaining her BSc in Honours Biochemistry from McMaster University in Hamilton, followed by two years in postgraduate cancer research, Olja realized that the answers, for her, are not found in test tubes but in real life – the food we eat, the water we drink, and most importantly the emotions and feelings we harbour. She realized that naturopathic medicine is her path the moment she discovered it. The intense training that followed was not difficult as she was already doing exactly what she wanted to do. Olja graduated from Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto in 1999, and has been practicing since then.
The combination of her experience in traditional naturopathic medicine with the recently introduced innovative TimeWaver technology has created a unique and effective experience for many of her patients. Digestive and hormonal issues are at the root of many disorders. Conditions such as gas, bloating, constipation and heartburn are all too common and naturopathic medicine gets to the root of the problem. For subclinical adrenal and thyroid imbalances, too low to be picked up by standard tests, natural treatments are sometimes the only option, as allopathic medicine offers little help. How often do people feel “off” but are told by their MD that nothing is wrong?
Olja is a mother to two vibrant girls, who deepened her clinical interest and experience in pediatrics. Olja is always thrilled to have little ones come into her office. Kids tend to be able to quickly regain balance with the right support. Olja promotes prevention as the best gift we can give to our kids; they get to learn new and healthy habits for life.
Olja loves working with breathing, and trains interested patients in the Limbic Breathing technique. This technique helps bring in more oxygen, reduces stress in minutes, and powerfully balances our biochemistry. Here is a tool that is free and portable!
In addition to Limbic Breathing, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) are two other energetic ways of quickly and positively affecting our mind. In many cases, that is the key to success. Weight loss, smoking cessation, eliminating fears, dealing with anxiety, depression or anger – these are some of the areas where these techniques excel. Once you learn them, they are yours for life.
Olja is an ND you can talk to and trust. She believes in meeting the person where they are at, in being a partner on their unique journey to well-being. Olja will teach you how to become your own best doctor. Her passion and dedication come from a very personal place, and translate into a naturopathic practice that is client-focused, safe, effective and sometimes even fun!
