Everything about medicine, and how the human body works so intricately to keep our systems in balance, fascinates me. Especially knowing that our bodies have the innate ability to heal and rebalance themselves. I've learned this firsthand after being diagnosed with Celiac Disease and beginning my journey to health. There is no "cure" for Celiac Disease, however, it can be controlled solely by diet. This was how my love for biochemistry and a natural approach to medicine began.
I find myself continuously more curious in understanding the "how" and "why" behind symptoms, and let my background in biochemistry and the current available research guide my treatment plans. I believe that in order to achieve optimal health you must treat the root cause of disease and the whole person. We are incredibly complex and unique beings that can't be reduced to a mere symptom to be solved by a pill. So much of our health depends on not only our physical body, but also our mental and emotional states. In creating a patient-centered approach to healthcare, naturopathic medicine helps to restore balance within the whole person. This balance can be achieved by removing obstacles, teaching healthy lifestyle habits, and using natural interventions. This way we don't focus on disease-care, but truly healthcare.
I am a licensed naturopathic doctor in good standing with the College of Naturopathic Physicians of British Columbia (CNPBC); and a member of the British Columbia Naturopathic Association (BCNA), Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND), Gastroenterology Association of Naturopathic Physicians (GastroANP), and a registered health care professional with Healthy Dancer Canada (HDC). I am certified in acupuncture and also have prescriptive authority in BC, which includes IV therapy.
