Meet Dr. Node Smith, ND

Everyone was created for a purpose. Node’s purpose is to work with people. Dr. Node has an infectious way about him that inspires people and helps make the types of changes necessary for lasting health somehow easier. He is also a master at helping others overcome obstacles, or turn obstacles into opportunities. He believes in humanity, he believes in health, and he believes in those he works with. He is more than a doctor, he is a counselor and a guide.


Node Smith, ND is a naturopathic doctor and director of TEAL Holistic - Integral Health Solutions, which focuses on addressing obstacles to health and facilitating sustainable behavioral change. He utilizes comprehensive life assessment tools, including personality testing, as well as a unique and powerful counseling style.


Node is an expert in behavioral change and is an adept counselor and naturopathic doctor. He specializes in finding the underlying causes of disease in a person’s life, and helping them grow and heal in these areas. 


One of Node’s gifts as a doctor is his ability to relate to his clients. Node is definitely not what you would expect as a doctor. He lives in rural Saskatchewan in a village of about 350 people,  loves working on cars, and chopping wood at his brother-in-law’s property. Him and his wife Charity live in a 1907 heritage home, which is under perpetual renovation - Node does most of the work himself. He also has recently rekindled his love for writing and publishes fiction as well as poetry. He sees writing as one of the ways he can add beauty and inspiration into the world.
