Don Warren: Naturopathic Medicine is a second career for Don. During a period of rapid growth of his family’s Ottawa based clothing retail chain he experienced a negative change in health which seemingly had no answers within conventional medicine. As a result of his pursuit to find solutions that would lead him back to health, he made a decision to embark on a totally new career. After completing the required pre-medical sciences at the University of Ottawa, Don and his wife Barbara and four children headed west to attend the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland Oregon He finished his studies in 1984 and in the same year successfully completed licensing exams for both Oregon and Ontario. Although his practice is a general family practice in naturopathic medicine, he specializes in classical homeopathy and has studied with a number of internationally recognized homeopathic physicians including Dr. Francisco Eizeyaga from Argentina and Rajan Sankaran from Mumbai, India.
