What I Do

We provide health assessments for our patients

Health Assessments

In each initial 60-minute appointment, I take a detailed health history to better understand the origins and progression of each patient’s condition, their general state of health, and their personal health goals. I also perform pertinent physical examinations and any indicated blood tests or diagnostics before recommending treatment to ensure that I am providing the most effective treatment options for each patient’s health concerns.

Nutrition as Medicine

Nutrition is an important foundation of our health. Poor nutrition can contribute to disease while proper nutrition has the ability to prevent or even help treat certain conditions, such as heart disease or type 2 diabetes. Taking an evidence-based approach, I focus on the power nutrition can have in helping my patients achieve their personal health goals and recover from illness.

Physical Medicine

As a life-long athlete, I understand the importance of recovering from injuries quickly and performing at one’s best. Using physical therapies, including strengthening exercises and soft tissue mobilization, I aim to help others achieve their athletic goals by reducing pain and improving strength and flexibility.

Our Vancouver naturopathic doctor help patients determine nutritional supplements

Nutritional and Herbal Supplementation

Food is our primary source of nutrition; however, in certain cases, additional supplementation may be indicated to meet our nutrient needs, correct nutritional deficiencies, or provide therapeutic actions. In my practice, I help my patients determine whether or not they would benefit from supplementation, how to source quality supplements, and I inform them of potential risks of supplementation so they can make an informed decision.
