In 1981, Kent Macleod saw a gap in healthcare services available in Ottawa. He set out to create a facility dedicated to offering his patients effective, individualized solutions as a natural alternative to the traditional ways of treating illnesses. Essentially, his goal was to empower his patients to feel good, to get better, and to take full control of their health.
Just a year after completing his pharmacy degree from the University of Toronto, he started by buying a bankrupt pharmacy on Ottawa’s west end. From there, he set out to create a health brand that would become synonymous with quality care.
Four decades later, NutriChem has become more than he could have imagined—an Ottawa naturopathic clinic trusted across the city and the world.
Today, NutriChem is a naturopathic clinic, pharmacy, and retail store offering everything our clients need all in one space. Carefully curated services like IV therapy, Body Chemistry Balancing, custom compounding, and nutritional consultation are paired with a full array of health and wellness products. All of this is under the guidance of a team of carefully selected naturopathic practitioners, ensuring that patients get exactly what their body needs. Nothing more, nothing less.
