Dr. Aranka Jones ND
Collingwood Naturopathic Doctor since 2009
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 without judgement! 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, playing various sports and exploring the great outdoors. I was a little bookish. 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 worked ever since.
People who work with me enjoy an approach to healthcare that is insightful, individualized and integrative while also compassionate, warm and down-to-earth. I empower you to understand how your body works and why your health is failing you; only then can we treat the root cause of your symptoms and correct dysfunction to restore balance and wellness.
I have a special interest in helping people with complex, hormone related issues like menopause, infertility, painful or irregular menstrual periods, hypothyroidism and adrenal dysfunction or “burnout”. I enjoy helping people with cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, anxiety, depression, insomnia and difficult digestive issues like GERD, IBS and inflammatory bowel disease. I’m also happy to be part of a healthy person’s mission to stay in top form and prevent the common ailments of aging.
I look forward to hearing your story and helping you, too.
