Dr. Jaclyn Bain empowers patients through education, understanding, and healing. She provides her patients with a wide array of naturopathic and conventional treatment options as well as starting pediatric patients on a path of lifetime wellness. Nutrition, classical homeopathy, biomedical therapies, lifestyle optimization, risk factor education, and botanical medicine are her preferred methods to guide patients towards better health. She considers food insecurity, picky eating, and sensory challenges when guiding families.

Some of her experience includes post-graduate mentorships in pediatrics with a focus in autism, certified in Heavy Metal Chelation Therapy (International IV Nutritional Therapy), and in Naturopathic Environmental Medicine (SpiritMed). Dr. Bain additionally is involved in clinical research for autism spectrum disorder.
