The safest source for practitioner-grade supplements.

Cobblestone Naturopathic Medicine

Dr Nick Plagos, ND,

I attended the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, and earned by Doctor of Naturopathy degree in 2018. I completed my clinical internship through CCNM and was selected to be a part of the Sports Medicine Focus Shift. This shift gave me extra experience working with athletes as patients, both in clinic and field-side settings.

While attending CCNM, I chose to complete my Sports Nutritionist Certification (CISSN) through the International Society of Sports Nutrition (2018). I felt that further education in diet and supplements geared specifically towards athletes and improving their performance would be a great asset as I ventured into my own clinical practice.

Prior to CCNM I attended McMaster University and received my Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry (2014). While at McMaster I was involved in research within the Faculty of Chemistry and that exposure helped me make the decision to transition into Naturopathic Medicine, a field where I believe being able to interpret research data to be critical to achieving success.

I believe in an integrated and patient-centred approach to healthcare. Preventative medicine should be used whenever possible and treatments should be research-based. No two patients are identical and therefore individualized treatment plans tailored to a patient’s specific needs should always be given.

On my own time I enjoy playing a variety of sports, most often soccer. You can often find me taking my dog along with me for runs, heading out camping, or rock climbing.
