Our Story

Khalili Second Nature was founded by Naturopathic Doctor Afsoun Khalili.

As an associate professor and clinic faculty at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) and with almost 2 decades in private practice, the idea to open her own multi-disciplinary, multi-practitioner-based clinic was driven by her desire to serve more people and deliver a wide scope of treatments through a collaborative group of practitioners.

A teacher at her core, Afsoun also focused on creating a clinic foundation where students and graduates alike are welcome to learn in a collaborative working environment outside of CCNM.

Our primary focus is to provide excellent patient-centred care. Gathering like-minded practitioners to best serve your needs, each practitioner brings their own unique approach to their patients and ensures patient care goes above and beyond.

The clinics are dedicated to supporting you through your journey to ultimate health. We have created a welcoming, collaborative and private environment. The practitioners each bring their dedication to their profession into your appointments, ensuring you are receiving the best care possible.

Our Mission

Our mission is to empower you on your journey to health and wellness.

We will support you towards achieving optimal health through evidence-based, non-invasive treatments and therapies, inspiring you to become your best self!

Naturopathic Doctor’s Oath

I dedicate myself to the service of humanity as a practitioner of the art and science of Naturopathic Medicine.

By precept, education and example, I will assist and encourage others to strengthen their health, reduce risks for disease, and preserve the health of our planet for ourselves and future generations. I will continually endeavour to improve my abilities. I will conduct my life and practice of Naturopathic Medicine with integrity and freedom from prejudice. I will keep confident what should not be divulged.

I will honour the principles of Naturopathic Medicine:

  1. First, to do no harm.
  2. To co-operate with the healing power of nature.
  3. To address the fundamental causes of disease.
  4. To heal the whole person through individualized treatment.
  5. To teach the principles of healthy living and preventive medicine.

With my whole heart, before these witnesses, as a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, I pledge to remain true to this oath.

Our Impact

Our North York clinic serves a community of patients within the greater Toronto area.

In a vast metropolitan city like Toronto, it’s easy to feel lost in the crowd – even when you are surrounded by a lot of people. Khalili Second Nature prides itself on a patient centred approach where you are heard, understood and valued.

Our Waterdown clinic promotes community health and wellbeing with the intention of leaving a legacy of wellness for generations to come.

Working collaboratively allows us to build your healing network and create a thriving community. The power of this community is very strong and constantly growing.

As Waterdown grows, we commit to bringing you the best patient care experience and expertise in naturopathic medicine. We are building your wellness community and look forward to welcoming you into the Khalili Second Nature family.

Visiting either clinic, you will find that each practitioner has a calling to serve and is devoted to supporting you along your journey to ultimate health.

We have strived to create a calm and safe environment.

As a teacher, Afsoun, encourages and welcomes future practitioners through preceptorships and externships. Throughout your visits in the clinic, you might see some students. We welcome students into the Khalili Second Nature family, exposing them to exceptional clinical knowledge and patient-centric care.
