Tanya is in her tenth year practising as a registered naturopathic doctor in Vaughan, Ontario. Between 2005 to September 2012 she worked in a busy full-time practice at “The Vaughan Medical Centre” alongside the natural health care team, chiropractic/physiotherapy team and conventional medical team. During her time at the Vaughan Medical Centre she worked with one of Canada’s leading alternative health experts Bryce Wylde, homeopathic doctor, (also her brother), and show host of CP24’s “Wylde on Health”. As of September 2012 the “Wylde natural health care team” moved to “The Centre for Health and Rehabilitation” (another integrative medical centre).
Tanya has a strong interest in treating women’s health concerns, hormone imbalances, polycystic ovarian syndrome, weight problems, fertility issues, pregnancy concerns, natural labour, lactation and healthy child development. Being an avid runner and mixed martial artist she also really appreciates working with athletes to help improve their performance naturally. Additionally, she enjoys helping people with no particular health concerns that are simply looking to be proactive and age gracefully by keeping a healthy lifestyle and supplementing appropriately. Since being certified as a First Line Therapy practitioner in 2006 she has had a great deal of experience and success in guiding overweight patients through a healthy weight reduction program that focuses on optimal nutrient status, nutrition and exercise. With her keen interest in nutrition as the foundation of her Naturopathic therapies she came to realize the importance of breastfeeding. She committed herself to many hours of additional training in Breast Feeding Consultation with Dr. Jack Newman (http://www.drjacknewman.com/) (pediatrician and Ontario’s finest specialist in Lactation) and has helped many patients in her private practice (spending over 1,000 hours) with lactation complications using natural medicine and techniques taught by Dr. Newman. Tanya has been blessed with the personal experience of nursing her own son which she continues to enjoy wholeheartedly. She has also been attending labours since 2004 as a Doula and is very well versed in supporting pregnant mom’s in natural labour. She is proud of the birthing experience she had when her son was born in March 2013 with a midwife and a doula present, which was free of any medical intervention, (meaning no inductions, membrane rupture, epidural etc). She hopes that with her extensive experience as a doula and her personal experience she can guide all of her pregnant patients through a natural, enjoyable, intervention free and healthy birthing experience (labour).
Tanya incorporates Orthomolecular Medicine, Botanical Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, and Fitness consults into her treatment plans depending on the chief concern/health condition. Due to her previous experience as a personal trainer and fitness instructor she is a strong motivator. It is her goal to uncover the root cause(s) of each patient’s unique illness and she is committed to supporting rather than suppressing the body’s innate ability to heal. It is important to note that she believes that conventional doctors play an important role in her patient’s health and well-being and she encourages all of her patients to inform their medical doctors and specialists of the treatments they undergo with her.
After graduating with honours from the University of Waterloo with a 4 year Bachelor of Science degree in Health Sciences, she completed 4 years of Naturopathic Medical training at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (Toronto), Canada’s only accredited Naturopathic College.
Continuing Education is a priority for Tanya. Each year she continues her professional development in fitness by attending Toronto’s annual CAN-FIT-PRO conference and in perinatal health by attending the annual conference organized by the Association of Perinatal Naturopathic Doctor’s. She has additional training in Lactation, Fertility, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, Bio-identical hormone therapy, Weight Loss, Acupuncture for both men and women with fertility issues and Acupuncture in pregnancy. She is a First Line Therapy Certified TM Weight Loss Practitioner.
Tanya, like her brother, Bryce Wylde (previous show host of CP24’s “Wylde on Health”) is passionate about educating the public on evidence based integrative medicine and motivating the public to get healthy via TV, electronic and print media.
