Q & A With Dr. John Dempster, ND, Naturopathic Doctor, The Dempster Clinic - Center for Functional Medicine

What services or products does your company offer?

We offer Functional Medicine, Naturopathic Medicine, IV Vitamin Infusion Therapy, Hormone balancing, Anti Aging Medicine, and Regenerative Medicine, from our Toronto (Yorkville) location.

How did you come up with the idea to start the Dempster Clinic, and what purpose did you intend to serve with the concept?

I founded The Dempster Clinic Center for Functional Medicine to help my patients get to the root of their chronic conditions.  By running an in-depth workup, we determine where each patient's individual imbalances are and create a custom program to help correct these issues.

Which milestones have marked meeting benchmarks towards the fulfillment of your personal goals/ the company's vision and goals?


I have been very fortunate to have been part of so many patients' health and wellness journey, and have witnessed many patients have incredible recoveries.  Working with those with chronic autoimmune conditions, chronic digestive conditions and more, it has been a privilege and an honor to be part of each person's wellness plan.  We have also been very fortunate to have been awarded as the top Naturopathic Clinic in Toronto for the last four consecutive years (Consumer Choice award).

Which steps have you taken for the company to achieve the level of consumer trust that has been nationally recognized?


I treat each patient as if they were part of my family.  I speak to them honestly, and support them wherever they are at in their health journey.  I also speak regularly on multiple summits and conferences to help educate the masses that they can become advocates for their health and utilize Functional Medicine to assist them in achieving their health goals.

What part of your education or other experiences do you feel was the most helpful in preparing you for success?

As mentioned above, I like to educate those who are interested in health and wellness by speaking on a number of free events (many of which are streamed online).  I also think it is vitally important to have balance in all aspects of life, which is why I am passionate about spending time with my young family, my friends, participate in sports, and enjoy the outdoors.

Which strategies have you found the most effective in growing your audience/ bringing awareness of your service to a larger consumer group? 

I offer a number of free resources (downloads, video series, blog, etc) on my website (www.thedempsterclinic.com) with simple, yet powerful steps to assist them in their health journey.  For those who are not able to see me as a patient, directly, I have also created a thorough yet easy-to-use online DIY program to assist those with chronic digestive issues https://www.healthygutinstitute.com/bundles/heal .  

Which partnerships, if any, have been the most constructive in bringing your goals closer to becoming a reality?

Working with mentors, being part of a fellowship, and regularly attending conferences continues to be very helpful.

Are there any challenges that made it difficult to continue operation and that you managed to overcome? What was your approach to get past these?

Aside from seeing patients as my day-to-day focus in my clinic, while running a private practice, I am required to wear many other 'hats' in order to help with the smooth operation of the clinic, of which some continue to evolve and change over time. Thus, it's important to me to be constantly learning how to be more effective and efficient at helping and supporting my team members, as well as constantly staying on top of ways to provide my patients with the best care possible.

How do you balance work, passions/hobbies, and relationships?

For me, life is about balance.  I am fortunate that I have a wonderful family, amazing friendships, and strong passions and interests outside of work to help round out my role as an ND.  I think balance in all areas helps me to be the best practitioner I can be.


What are your future plans to build on your personal/ company achievements and fulfill your vision for success/ what developments can your audience or clientele look forward to expecting next?

A role in healthcare - specifically, that of a Naturopathic Doctor - is a dynamic and ever-evolving profession.  With science and technology evolving, constantly, it is imperative to stay on the steep learning curve in order to provide the most current and evidence-based therapies to my patients.  Further, we are constantly on the lookout for like-minded and fantastic new practitioners to join our team!


What advice would you like to give readers that hope to achieve success in your field?

If you are passionate about helping others and are eager to learn and evolve in the health-and-wellness space, this is the profession for you.
