Doctor Marquis has always held the belief that we are more than meets the eye. She has studied several levels of Reiki, a form of energetic healing, and strongly believes that it is the energetic component that makes us human, alive and beyond just a physical body. She believes that disease often begins with an imbalance in emotion & energy that eventually affects us physically ….in ways that we are unable to see, but that are truly profound.

Like a tree, what we see is the trunk, the branches, the leaves, but what is equally important is what is not seen – the roots, the source of nourishment, security, and balance.

As a result of her intellectual curiosity for what is not seen Jayne chose to become a Homeopathic Doctor as well as a Naturopathic Doctor. She fell in love with Homeopathy while she was studying to become a Naturopathic Doctor. It was in her second year of Naturopathic Medicine she took a trip to India to introduce herself to Homeopathy and study under a master of Homeopathic medicine. The principles of Homeopathy resonated profoundly, as she had always held the belief that all physical ailments have a mental emotional component. Mastering Homeopathy requires you to listen to what is going on emotionally and energetically as well as physically. She was excited because it is an important medicine that works with the energetic part of us.

Homeopathy looks at the person in detail, and seeks to identify the complete picture, that which is seen, and that which is unseen.  The idea is to take the findings to match it to a remedy,…. using the principle of “like cures like”.

This was something Jayne was determined to master.  And so after becoming a Naturopathic Doctor she studied Homeopathy for two more years at the Ontario Collage of Homeopathic Medicine.  At the same time she worked with and learned from as many Homeopathic masters as she could…. including Jan Scholten, Louis Klein (3 year master clinician coarse), Rajan Sankaran, Franz Vermeulen, and more. She saw and experienced first hand the results of this simple but profound medicine in cases, in clinic, and most importantly with her own family.  Her respect, admiration and learning for this important medicine continues to grow.

Jayne truly enjoys being able to do something that she loves everyday – helping others in the pursuit of health and well-being. She feels there is a role for all medicine, Allopathic, Naturopathic medicine and homeopathy.

Her love for movement, and creativity helped her to achieve her goal of becoming a Canadian Ballroom Dance champion. Her love of fitness and of flying made her first a pilot and now a passionate participant in the sport of trampolining. Her experiences have brought her a special awareness of not only the needs of athletes, but also the need to treat us all like athletes. There is an important role for naturopathic medicine and homeopathy in this – to make the physical whole, balanced, fit, and complete. And on a deeper level to view that part of us that stops us from reaching absolute fulfillment/happiness, …by restoring that energetic part of us to balance, the body is given the tools to heal, thus allowing us to achieve complete health on all levels.

Jayne is a mother of two young children, giving her practical hands on experience with the highly safe and effective use of Homeopathy in everyday childhood ailments.  Seeing change immediately in many acute cases has made her a firm believer in the curative power of homeopathy. She has also used homeopathy successfully on dogs, cats and horses!

Jayne applies her experience, knowledge, passion, and dedication to her current practice and the treatment of every patient she sees.

Doctor Marquis, ND HD is a member of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors and The Ontario Association of Homeopathic Doctors.

Naturopathic Medicine

The principle of Naturopathic Medicine is to treat the cause of illness and disease and to “do no harm”. It is a blend of scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine.

Definition

Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. The naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the healing power of the body and treat the underlying cause of disease. Symptoms of disease are seen as warning signals of improper functioning of the body, and unfavourable lifestyle habits. Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than as an entity.

Treating both acute and chronic conditions, naturopathic treatments are chosen based on the individual patient – their physiological, structural, psychological, social, spiritual, environment and lifestyle factors. In addition to diet and lifestyle changes, natural therapies including botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, naturopathic manipulation and traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture, may also be used during treatments.

In Canada, the naturopathic medical profession’s infrastructure includes accredited educational institutions, professional licensing, national standards of practice, participation in many federal health committee initiatives, and a commitment to state-of-the-art scientific research.

Homeopathic Medicine

Definition

Homeopathy is a system of medicine based on the philosophy that “like cures like,” or “similar must be cured by similar.” The remedy must match the patient’s symptoms on all levels for the remedy to be considered “similar.” When the remedy matches the patient’s condition perfectly, the remedy is said to be the “simillimum.” This is the remedy that will produce complete healing.

Homeopathy’s miracle lies in its ability to treat the mental and emotional body and physical disease in tandem. As a result, homeopathy is truly holistic. While physical disease symptoms can be alleviated without healing the underlying mental and emotional disturbance, inevitably, the unhealed emotional pain will reappear on the physical level, sometimes in a more severe form.
