Dr. Aranka Jones ND
Collingwood Naturopathic Doctor
Hi there! You probably want to know how to pronounce my name.. It’s “AHH-RUN-KAH”. Technically you’re supposed to roll the “R” but if you can’t, don’t worry; I answer to a number of variations! I also answer to Dr. Jones if you’d like to be more formal.
I grew up in Blue Mountain and Collingwood where I spent most of my childhood skiing, swimming and exploring the great outdoors. I left this paradise to study Biological Science at the University of Guelph and Naturopathic Medicine at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, returning to Collingwood to open my naturopathic family practice in 2009 where I have served the community ever since.
My patients and I enjoy an approach to healthcare that is insightful, individualized and integrative while also compassionate, practical and down-to-earth. I empower you to understand how various body systems work and precisely why your health is failing you; only then can we treat the root cause(s) of your symptoms, correct underlying dysfunction and restore balance. Health is not only the absence of disease. In my practice we strive for an optimal state of wellness.
I have over a decade of experience in naturopathic medicine and a special interest in helping people with complex health conditions that are difficult to treat with conventional medicine alone; health conditions that require assessment and treatment through the lens of integrative and functional medicine, including:
Autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease;
Metabolic diseases like type 2 diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease;
Gastrointestinal disorders like GERD, SIBO, IBS and inflammatory bowel disease;
Hormonal and women’s health concerns related to fertility, peri-menopause and PCOS;
Mental health conditions including anxiety and depression;
Skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, acne, rosacea and alopecia.
If you’d like to learn more about how I can help please schedule a complimentary Discovery Visit. This allows us to become acquainted and decide if I’m the right naturopathic doctor for you. If you’re ready to get started please schedule an Initial Visit ranging from 90-120 minutes for adults depending on the complexity of your health concerns. We have the luxury of time to be thorough and address all of your health concerns. You can read more and book online here or call our office at 705-446-2200 for assistance.
I look forward to working with you!
