As a result, her practice focus is one that offers natural health solutions for hormone related concerns. Many of her patients are under chronic stress and suffer from fatigue. They may also present with infertility, a thyroid disorder, adrenal dysfunction, insulin resistance, pre-diabetes, diabetes, andropause, menstrual complaints, peri-menopausal concerns, menopausal symptoms, weight gain, breast health concerns or polycystic ovarian syndrome. 


Born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Dr. Bizios ND obtained her Bachelor of Applied Science in 1998 specializing in Food and Nutrition.  Her growing interest in human health and natural healing led her subsequently to pursue a career in Naturopathic Medicine. Dr. Bizios ND graduated in 2001 from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine as a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine.  
 
During her fourth year internship, she attended Midwestern Regional Medical Centre – Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Chicago where she received specialized training in Naturopathic Oncology.  Upon graduation, Dr. Bizios ND proceeded to broaden her clinical scope, and attended Harvard Medical School, receiving Clinical Training in Mind-Body Medicine with renowned Dr. Herbert Benson MD.
