Toronto West Homeopathy | Kanan Patel

My background in Physics (PhD, Astrophysics and Astronomy McMaster University, Hamilton, ON) combined with a rigorous education in the science of homeopathy has uniquely prepared me to provide the most considered, thorough and effective care to my patients and so doing, truly partner with them on their healing journey.

My Journey

Doctor of Homeopathy in Toronto WestMy deep desire to help others started at a very young age when I pledged I would one day study to be a doctor so that I could help my aunt Lily. That desire never went away but was superseded at the age of 11 when I discovered something called astrophysics. It was love at first encounter. Fast forward 20 years and after a glorious and fulfilling immersion in the world of math and physics and observational astronomy, I graduated with a PhD in astrophysics

I came upon homeopathy as a patient. My experience with this healing modality was simply extraordinary. I could not begin to comprehend how the remedies could  make such a profound difference in my health — physical, mental and emotional. Time and again, I observed how effective and gentle homeopathy was in bringing lasting health to my family and friends, both old and young, humans as well as animals. This was not wishful thinking or placebo. As a scientist I had to find out how it worked. So I went back to school and after an intense 3 years of study at the Canadian College of Homeopathic Medicine (CCHM), I graduated with a degree in Homeopathic Medicine (DCHM)

In 2012, I started my private practice, Vital Life Homeopathy treating patients locally in Toronto as well as across North America and overseas in the UK and India.  I am honoured to be a teacher and clinic mentor at my alma mater, the Canadian College of Homeopathic Medicine.  Most of all, it is a privilege to practice the healing arts here at Kingsway Chiropractic along side my esteemed colleagues, Dr. Hunter and Jennifer Cruikshank.

Immense rewards

The journey to homeopathy has brought immense personal rewards. Treating others has allowed me to experience greater levels of joy and health then I could have ever imagined. Health is multi-dimensional, the healing journey is for patient and healer alike. For this opportunity, I am immensely grateful.

When not immersed in the world of homeopathy, I am at the beck-and-call of our kitty –  Billy  –  and my human family (needless to say, in that order :)). I am certified  ‘cat lady’,  in fact, ‘animal lady’. I love being in nature, practicing tai chi, gardening, cooking for fiends and family and listening to music, especially live music. I’m very grateful to be  a resident of this great city where all of this is possible!
