My story by Dr. Pamela Frank, BSc(Hons), ND:
Health has been my passion since I was a child. One of my earliest career aspirations at the age of 5 was to be a nurse. When I graduated from high school, without a clear sense of what profession to devote my life to, I chose a 2-year program in medical lab technology. I enjoyed the science and medicine aspects of the profession, however, the work became more and more automated and less intellectually stimulating, prompting a return to school to complete my undergraduate degree. During that time, I discovered naturopathic medicine and it has been my passion in life ever since. The profession satisfies my hunger for knowledge, offers many opportunities to enlist my problem-solving skills, endless intellectual stimulation keeping up with rapid advances in the profession and it enables me to help others medically. I share my grandfather’s entrepreneurial blood, so opening my own clinic was the right fit for me, hence Forces of Nature Wellness Clinic was born in 1999.
Forces of Nature Wellness Clinic facts
Forces of Nature was established in 1999. Initially, just one naturopathic doctor, over the years Forces of Nature has expanded so that we are now 1 massage therapist, 2 naturopathic doctors, a chiropractor, an acupuncturist, an osteopath, a registered dietitian and a psychotherapist with 3 support staff. We have been located at Yonge and Eglinton since we opened, but moved next door from our original location (2443 ½ Yonge St) to 2447 Yonge St, 2nd floor in 2010.
