Our Story

NatCan is a modern and dynamic centre that is driven by a team of practitioners passionate about health promotion and illness prevention. Since its inception, NatCan has grown to become a full service integrative health clinic, with practitioners including naturopathic doctors, osteopathic & chiropractic doctors, physiotherapists, massage therapists and spiritual coaches. NatCan practitioners strive to operate as a true integrative medical team. This model provides not only the convenience of centrally located practitioners, but more importantly, ensures that you receive true integrative care, drawing from the best of traditional and complimentary medical philosophies.

NatCan was founded by Dr. Santos, a primary care Naturopathic Doctor, with confidence from successful husband Michael Astone, Chartered Accountant. Dr. Santos had a clear vision: to create a small town healthcare experience, but on a large scale, to embody the same attention to care, prevention and treatment she experienced as a young patient in her hometown of Chatham, Ontario.

Dr. Santos fast-tracked through university, graduating from The University of Guelph with a Honours Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Science and a Masters Degree in Biomedical Science by the age of 22. Dr. Santos met her husband during her Masters degree. Shortly after her completion and graduation from naturopathic medical school at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2017, and successfully passing her board and licensing exams she got married.

In 2017, Dr. Santos established the NatCan Centre, a practice in which Canadians could go beyond the one-size-fits all healthcare model. At NatCan, patients are provided with a quality consultation with a practitioner and thorough investigation into appropriate and necessary diagnostic testing and treatment.

  • No rushed appointments
  • No time wasted; and,
  • Patients feel reassured that they are doing all they can possibly do for their well-being.

NatCan operates under the values and ethics where we put the relationship with our clients and their healthcare needs above all. Just as important as the care you receive, the NatCan space was designed to be equally warm, inviting and comforting. We strive to provide a place where people come to gain an empowered perspective on health, and a proactive approach to living your best life. We welcome the opportunity to work with you.
