About Negin Sayar

I’m a 4th year naturopathic intern in the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine and an international medical graduate from Iran. After obtaining my medical degree I worked as a general practitioner in the Emergency department and outpatient clinics. This 2-year job opportunity was a turning point in my life. I realized the importance of preventative medicine and early diagnosis of diseases not only in one’s health and wellness but also in social well-being.

This prompted me to continue my education in the field of complementary and lifestyle medicine and naturopathic medicine sounded the best fit to what I was looking for to be able to help my patients with more natural and less invasive treatments.

My ultimate goal is to bring conventional and natural therapies closer together and to bridge the gap by providing education, information and evidence-based therapies to my patients.

Special Interests

I’m mainly interested in the hormonal health particularly thyroid and women’s hormones, gut health and anxiety. I believe that happiness starts from the within, that is a healthy body, a clear mind and a free spirit.

I help my patients regain their happiness and feel their best by looking at their concerns from a holistic view and finding their primary root cause. I believe in the importance of active listening and patient education as major factors in the process of healing.

When it comes to treatment, I always consider the hierarchy of treatments; first, the pillars of health including nutritional modification, physical activity and healthy mind. If one’s health condition needs further support, I will then incorporate supplements, botanical remedies, acupuncture and physical therapy to ease their pain and to target the root cause of their disease.

The diagnostic skills I have honed from my previous medical experience along with the holistic view I’m learning in the naturopathic program have enabled me to provide high quality service to my patients and the care they deserve.

About Reduced Rate Visits at Annex Naturopathic Clinic

Are you looking for naturopathic care but finding the fees are a barrier to access?

Here, at the Annex Naturopathic Clinic, we offer reduced rate visits by our 4th year naturopathic interns. They are competent at history taking, differential diagnosis, bloodwork analysis, physical examination, medicinal herbs, supplements and pharmaceuticals.

What does the flow of the visits look like?

All the visits are supervised by experienced and licensed naturopathic doctors. Initial visits with our interns are 75-90 minutes long. They take your intake, go over your diet and lifestyle and gather as much information as needed. They then summarize the information and discuss it with a registered ND to get to a diagnosis and put a comprehensive naturopathic treatment plan together.

Interns are responsible for researching for their patients, so if you are struggling with a chronic disease or an undiagnosed condition, you can trust them looking for evidence and updated research to help you out and to find the root cause.
Listening, educating and empowering the patients is the primary goal of our interns. The four-year intensive program equips the students with enough knowledge to answer your basic health questions, help you deeply understand your health issue and explain the treatment plan and the evidence and logic behind it.

What other services do interns provide?

In addition, students in their internship are also able to provide services such as acupuncture, cupping, vaginal examination, pap smear and intramuscular vitamin B12 injections.

What conditions do interns see most?

Conditions that our interns are very good at handling are mental health including depression and anxiety, gut health, hormonal health, fertility, chronic diseases, musculoskeletal disorders and so much more.

What is the fee for the visits?

$66 for the Initial visit (75-90 mins), $44 for 60-min follow up and $22 for 30-min follow up.
