DR. POLINA MAK, BA (Hons), ND
Naturopathic Doctor and IV Therapy Practitioner
"I teach people with chronic infections, IBS and SIBO the action steps for building a strong immune system, healing leaky gut and reducing inflammation with ease" - Dr. Polina Mak ND
Through her clinical practice, teaching and writing, Dr. Polina Mak, Naturopathic Doctor, inspires a grounded and tangible sense of 'Wow! I really can feel better' for hundreds of people with chronic illness.
She proves that by moving away from 'treat the symptom' and into 'treat the cause', even the longest time irritable bowel sufferers can bypass overwhelm and frustration, and instead achieve exciting momentum as they move closer to health and wellness.
Her areas of expertise are; depression, anxiety, traumas, life transitions, relationship issues, emotional and attachment disturbances in adults.
Her two main passions in life are; psychotherapy and interior design. "I think they are somehow related in a way that psychotherapy helps people become more in charge of their inner experience and create a safe and comfortable inner landscape. Interior design allows us to do that in the physical world. When you have the freedom to turn any space into something beautiful and comfortable, meeting your unique taste and needs can be very therapeutic. As Winston Churchill said; 'We shape our buildings, and afterwards our buildings shape us' and I couldn't agree more."
