Dr. Anna Garber, ND



Children’s health, digestive concerns, Autism Spectrum, low energy, high cholesterol, and blood sugar balance.


Dr. Garber is passionate about all things related to children’s health. This passion developed when she became an aunt, and her entire world changed. She found so much reward in playing a role in a child’s growth and development, and she strives to do the same for other children. Dr. Garber loves working with children and their families because shaping health and wellbeing early in life will help set a strong foundation for health in adulthood. Dr. Garber believes every patient deserves to be informed about the benefits and potential side effects of their prescriptions, and her patients and her work together to build realistic, evidence-informed treatment plans that align with their lifestyle, goals, and values. Her clinical approach is to empower patients through education, and she values building upon small, realistic changes to ensure treatment plans are sustainable.

Land Acknowledgement

Juniper Naturopathic Clinic operates on nistawâyâw, within Treaty 8. This is the traditional territory of the Cree and Dene people and the unceded homeland of the Métis. We recognize that the colonization of this land by settlers like us was and continues to be unjust and harmful. 

We would like to honour the role Indigenous people have taken on for thousands of years as environmental stewards and we would like to show the same respect for the environment. We acknowledge that much of Naturopathic Medicine’s understanding of herbal medicine and other treatments is owed to the knowledge and wisdom of Indigenous peoples.

We are grateful for the opportunity to practice medicine, learn, and work on this land.
