  • I strongly recommend Dr. Abecassis, especially to people who struggle with heartburn. I had my first ulcer when I was 19 and it’s been almost a decade since doctors have been doing all kinds of tests, endoscopies, and giving me all kinds of meds. My family doctor said there is some disfunction of one of my organs that’s why my stomach produces so much acidity and basically there was no cure for it. Going through university has been a nightmare. I wish I met Dr. Abecassis earlier, because it’s only been under a month and I feel improvement already. My friend recommended her and I was very skeptical obviously. Pardon my French, but she is no BS doctor, knows what she is doing definitely. If you have the same problem as me, give her a shot. I’m writing reviews everywhere, because I see amazing results and I feel very comfortable with her which is a big +

  • I have been battling Crohn’s disease for many years. My symptoms are often debilitating and severe. My doctors have put me on many different medications, some of which have not worked, others which have but only for a limited time until symptoms re-surface. I decided to try the natural approach because I had nothing to lose. Desiree is super kind and very well educated on the alternative way of healing. The first time I met with Desiree and followed her recommendations, she saved my life. She carefully took my case, listened to all my symptoms, gave me a treatment protocol and prescribed some specific natural remedies. I was feeling on top of the world, my symptoms have not felt that controlled and diminished for as long as I can remember. What I like about Desiree is that its not an “all or nothing” approach. She doesn’t give you unattainable goals, everything is within reason and implemented slowly at your own pace. I am feeling great thanks to Desiree and I strongly recommend a visit.”

  • I’ve been suffering with my stomach issues for so many years. I have painful heart burns, irritation, acidity, joint pains, fatigue and the list goes on. I’ve been seeing doctors over and over but without any successful results. When I started seeing Dr Desiree, she heard my story and was very knowledgeable about what was going on. She suggested immediately natural products to get my system working again and flashing away what was accumulated.
  • It’s only been 2 times I see her but I can say that I do see the results. My digestion is better, my heart burns have reduced and I can’t wait till everything is resolved.
  • Dr Desiree is very motivational and I am starting to have hope again.
  • I would definitely recommend her. She can give you information on eating habits, easy recipes and regimes to follow.
  • Dr. Abecassis has a passion for healing and is extremely knowledgeable. She is very giving as a practioner and digs deep to find out symptoms and lifestyle. I suffer from digestive issues and she did a very thorough analysis of my health and came up with a regime that was easy to follow. I subscribed to almost all of her recommendations for quite some time and it was most helpful!I felt healed but I have slipped back to some of my bad habits but know I can ask her advise and guidance and she will provide motivation to keep going in the right direction again. Highly recommend her as a sound and approachable practioner who provides advice to receive results! Very personable and makes you feel comfortable.
  • After many years of medical treatment for my low bone density and osteoporosis, I realized that the prescribed medication I was given failed to improve my situation. I decided to look for another way to improve my health. I consulted Desiree, and followed her health plan. I needed to try a different approach all together, and I am glad I did. Desiree, was very open, easy to connect with, and had a very professional approach. I felt in complete confidence, and trusting relation with her. She took the time to explain her science, and how it would benefit me. I received the answers to my questions, and I took all the steps she suggested, as they were clear and precise. I am currently following her recommendations and continue to consult with her on a regular basis.
  • After consulting Desiree about digestive disturbances that have been haunting me for years, I felt immediate relief with her recommendations. Desiree is extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and patient for putting up with my billions of emails to her over the span of one week. My favorite part of the consultation process is that she understands how pressed for time I am in my every day life and really caters my treatment plans so they are easy to follow and incorporate into my routine. Of course I run into circumstances where I cannot follow her program, but there she is, ready to re-tailor anything to convene my lifestyle (and taste buds). I highly recommend her. The spirit of a true healer!
  • Before consulting with Desiree I had regular constipation along with acne that were causing a lot of emotional distress. Desiree introduced me to new products and suggested some easy diet tips that were easy to incorporate into my regular routine. I was very happy with Desiree’s approach because it looked deeper to the core of the problem, something I felt was lacking in more conventional methods. I now feel like I have more control over my own body and the knowledge to continue improving my overall health. Meeting with Desiree is a real pleasure, she carefully listens to any small cues to what might be causing your symptoms and then designs a well thought-out program for you. I would recommend her to friends and family that are looking for more profound and long lasting results to any health concerns they might be experiencing. Achieving optimal health is an on-going process and I look forward to continue working with Desiree.
  • Dr. Abecassis was recommended to me by a friend and patient of the Resource Health Center. I visited the website and found it very informative and had a long list of testimonials from very happy clients, so I decided to contact the center. I spoke with Dr. Abecassis directly and she was so warm and helpful in setting up our first appointment. She treated me for my anxiety issues with Naturopathy and Homeopathy and really inquired about the root of my health issues. She took ample time to assess my symptoms and concerns and recommended very affordable natural supplements and foods to support my healing. To my astonishment, my condition improved dramatically and it is the first time in many years that my anxiety is under control. I feel so grateful to have finally visited with someone who could truly help me.
  • I’ve been on weight loss diets for as long as I can remember. I’ve been successful in the past by depriving myself, but every time I stopped dieting and returned to eating “normally”, the pounds would come back. Over the last few years, I gained 75lbs and my doctor suggested that I take medication to lower my cholesterol. I was determined to take charge of my health without taking pills, so I consulted Desiree and we completed a thorough assessment of my symptoms. Any skepticism I may have had about naturopathy vanished immediately. She started me on an easy-to-follow plan involving ingredient substitutions, supplements and simple lifestyle changes. In the 2 months since our first consultation, I’ve already lost 40lbs, and my cholesterol levels have fallen back to healthy levels. I was able to do it all at my own pace, within my busy schedule, and without experiencing any cravings or feelings of hunger. I genuinely feel healthier and my most recent blood test results confirm it.
  • Desiree’s role has been significant in helping me heal my spirit and my body’s overall health. Through a thorough examination of my state-of-mind and daily routines, she was able to provide me with guidance on various aspects of my life from eating habits, sleeping and relaxation techniques, as well as thought processes. I began to understand myself better; why I chose to feel the way I did and why my body was suffering the consequences. Desiree treated me as a friend and as a complex human, where both spirit and body are deeply intertwined. In understanding our thoughts and behaviors, we might understand are our body’s reactions as well. Coupled with her knowledge of healthy eating practices, she skillfully provides you with a balanced lifestyle plan, tailored to your specific needs. In addition, she’s incredibly supportive, friendly and empathetic, which made the consultations that much more pleasant. I highly recommend Desiree!:)
  • I originally consulted with Desiree for digestive problems I had been suffering from for years. They were so severe and no specialist could determine what was going on. After just one visit with her and upon implementing her thorough treatment plan, my symptoms almost immediately subsided. I am so grateful, feel so much better and the suggestions have become part of my new lifestyle. Her professionalism and knowledge really make for an effective and enjoyable visit.
  • Dr. Abecassis never treated me with anything but the utmost care and tendersness. I believe I may have fulfilled my capacity to enjoy life through her guidance.
  • Prior to consulting with Desiree, I was feeling very tired of the pain that I was carrying around for a year. The medical establishment provided many worthwhile tests but nothing showed up in their analysis- good for me – but I knew that there was something wrong– something was stuck. With Desiree’s help and a few simple steps towards the healing process of my inflamed intestinal tract, I was able to move forward with life. The recommendations that Desiree offered exceeded my expectations. Her treatment plan was so unique that it surprised the medical establishment! –the two doctors that I dealt with every three months were impressed and encouraged me to continue with what was working for me. Desiree’s service is one I would gladly recommend to any of my loved ones.”
