Dr. Jacqueline Moulton
My name is Jacqueline Moulton, but I wasn't always a Moulton. Last year I married the love of my life and took his name. I was born and raised in St. Catharines in a Mennonite Christian Family, although I am Christian, I do not discriminate any religious beliefs or spiritual views. I had a difficult childhood that made me stronger and empathetic both qualities I am thankful for since they've made me become “me”. My hobbies are going for hikes, checking out local family run restaurants, and giving back to the community. I have two fur babies named Tigger and Gizmo that enjoy snuggles and helping their mommy with homework. My Fun goal is to hike the whole Bruce Trail from Niagara to Tobermory, ON. And I am excited to announce that I will begin working at the LIVA Health Centre January 2019 and eager to join this growing team of healthcare professionals.
I started my academic journey here at Brock University where I obtained an Honors Bachelor in Health Sciences (BSc.) with advanced courses in cardiology, pharmacology, neurobiology, and endocrinology. Then I continued my education at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) where I received a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine. However finishing the education doesn't make you a Naturopathic Doctor. To become a Naturopathic Doctor in Ontario I completed both a written North American examination called NPLEX by NABNE and a practical Board examination by CONO along with registration with the regulatory body in Ontario CONO, The College of Naturopaths of Ontario before receiving a license to practice Naturopathic medicine.
Why Become a Naturopath?
My path into Naturopathic Medicine started in my undergraduate program at Brock University when I was heart stricken to hear that my aunt’s fiancé had passed from a heart attack only at the age of 32. This caused me to further my knowledge into cardiology and into the preventative healthcare careers. While in my undergrad I was privileged with shadowing different healthcare professionals and came across Naturopathic Medicine for the first time. After shadowing a local Naturopathic doctor Dr. Tara Clapp, ND I instantly felt like this is where I needed to be. The preventative and alternative care I could provide to my patients could one day enrich the lives of others. My motto is “Healthcare from the Heart” not only for my interest in cardiology but because I care for the well-being of all my patients and strive to provide the best and most recent scientific-based Naturopathic Medicine.
Every day, I strive to both educate and heal my patients, empowering them to live better and healthier lives.
What to Expect:
An initial Naturopathic visit is approximately 60-90 minutes in length, during which time Dr. Moulton will complete a full and thorough review of your health history, a condition specific physical examination using standard medical techniques, and an initial treatment plan. Having current lab & imaging tests from medical doctors prior to initial visit may lead to more efficient use of time. The initial treatment plan may be homework to bring in to the second appointment or some labs that need to be run to understand the assessment or to allow for baseline numbers prior to further treatment. A complete treatment plan will be discussed with the patient on the second visit this includes length of treatment, treatment modalities, cost, the evidence, benefits, risks, and any alternatives to the treatment. Every treatment plan is individualized to both patient preference, current scientific research and the patient’s health status or condition. Follow-up visits are generally required within 3-6 weeks of second visit, depending on the amount of time between follow ups the length of the visit runs from 15- 60 minutes. Further follow-up visits are usually every 3 months thereafter, however, every patient will be treated base on their specific needs. After the initial appointment you may opt for an annual screening examination 60min or you may book an acute 15-30 min visit or a phone consult 15-30 min.
