Hillcrest Centre for Health is an ethincally diverse, community focused, naturopathic health clinic & herbal dispensary. We offer a full spectrum of safe and high quality services such as consultations with board certified naturopaths, certified nutritionists, acupuncture and vitamin IV therapy in the vibrant St. Clair West community in Toronto. Our areas of focus include : fertility, perinatal & postnatal, hormonal balance, digestion and skincare.
We began over 20 years ago as an herbal shop and health food store called 'Centro Naturista Guatavita' which was quite prominent in Toronto's latin community. The shop's motto "Let's take care of this planet, our children deserve it," was the business' guiding principle. Run by Alex and Flor Hurtado, it was rebranded as a health clinic in 2008 by their daughter Alexandra Hurtado, who is a board certified naturopathic doctor and nutritionist. She saw a void in the community and endeavoured to provide a full spectrum of high quality specialty services and supplements with a focus on community health to the growing GTA. Since that time, the practice has grown immensely with demand rising as people begin to focus on their personal health story as a modern day priority.
In 2018, Dr.Hurtado, ND opened a Mississauga sister clinic, Clarkson Family Naturopathic, in the quaint Clarkson neighbourhood by the lake in order to better serve her patients. She runs both clinics simultaneously and sees patients at both locations with an ever growing team of health professionals.
At Hillcrest Centre for Health, we believe in looking at the whole picture when approaching health. This means not just looking at supporting the whole individual (body & mind) but also supporting healthy relationships, healthy communities and a healthy environment.
