Dr Maria Papasodaro ND
I am the founder of Nature’s Touch Naturopathic Clinic since 2007. I have an Honours Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry and Psychology from the University of Toronto; and received my Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine diploma from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in 2007. While studying at CCNM, I was the president of the Naturopathic Student Ambassador Program. This program focused on educating high school students about naturopathic medicine and healthy living. As part of my clinical internship, I worked at Queen West Health Centre in Toronto. This clinic taught me to truly listen to patient’s concerns and develop treatment plans with various hands on therapies in a cost effective manner.
I am also a member of the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (OAND) and the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND). Furthermore, I am in good standing with The College of Naturopaths of Ontario.
I have taught anatomy and pathophysiology in the Holistic Care program at Centennial College. I have further certification in Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture, First Line Therapy, Naturopathic Doula. Since 2017, I became licensed with Prescribing Rights. This includes being able to prescribe bio-identical hormones: estrogen and progesterone creams, desiccated thyroid, high dose of vitamin D, folic acid and B12 shots. In addition, I am licensed to provide Intravenous Therapy of vitamins and minerals. As a wife and busy mom of 3, I also like to give back to my community by acting as a Preceptor for students from Centennial College, University of Toronto, and CCNM. Every year I organize my annual “Naturopathic Walk for Wellness” in Brampton. This event occurs every May promoting wellness and empowering people in the community to move and accumulate their steps, sample some gluten and dairy free items and win a chance for various gift baskets.
Dr Kamila McClean ND
Elements of naturopathic medicine have been a part of my life since birth. I was born and raised in the west end of Toronto, Ontario. Throughout my childhood, my mother treated my ailments with various natural remedies. Natural medicine is also extensively utilized in my culture. Fast forward a few years – I attended Oakwood University in Huntsville, Alabama where I majored in Biological Sciences and minored in Chemistry. In my last year while thinking about what I should do next, I was introduced to natural medicine as a career by my mother who is a health care professional. It was always my plan to pursue a career in healthcare and I was intrigued by the attention to detail and individualized care that naturopathic medicine provided. To me it was the perfect marriage of art and medicine.
I received my medical education at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. As part of my training, I participated in a 12-month internship at the largest naturopathic teaching clinic in North America, the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic. In addition, I benefitted from a clinical placement at the Sherbourne Naturopathic Clinic on their HIV specialty shift. Since 2014, I have enjoyed treating a variety of conditions including but not limited to women’s health, mental health and digestive health.
I am a licensed naturopathic doctor in good standing and registered with the College of Naturopaths of Ontario. I am also a member of the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors and the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors.

I completed my one year of internship at the largest naturopathic teaching clinic Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic (North York), Parkdale Health Centre (Toronto), and Brampton Civic Hospital. I had been engaged in the consultation and treatment of patients suffering from food sensitivities, chronic fatigue syndrome, digestive disorders, fibromyalgia, menopause, fertility problems, respiratory conditions, hormonal imbalances, and much more. Understanding the uniqueness of every individual I am motivated to utilize knowledge acquired and skills developed during my internship, to contribute to the wellbeing of people, by means of natural medicine.
I am licensed to prescribe bio-identical hormones: estrogen and progesterone cream, desiccated thyroid hormone, high dose vitamin D, vitamin A, and folic acid and B12 injections.
True health is accomplished when your emotional and physical states are in balance. I understand how difficult it can be to maintain the balance and live a healthy lifestyle. Being a believer of integrative health care I would like to use my knowledge to help patients achieve personal growth and balance in life, physically and mentally.
