As a licenced Naturopathic Doctor, I have completed training from an accredited 4-year post graduate program at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. I have also passed the Naturopathic Physicians Licencing Examinations from the North American Board of Naturopathic Examiners. In addition, I have been granted prescribing authority for pharmaceutical agents in the province of British Columbia.
I completed my undergraduate degree in Biology from the University of Calgary and participated in an exchange with the University of Groningen in the Netherlands where I had the opportunity to work in a molecular genetics laboratory.
SECONDAY HEALTHCARE PROVIDER. If my skills can benefit your patient, it would be my honor to co-manage their care. I am also happy to accept vacation or maternity leave patients from other Naturopathic Doctors with the understanding that they will return to your care when you are available.
NATUROPATHIC CONSULT. If you have a case that you'd like a fresh perspective on, I'd love it if you consulted with me.
PRE & POST OP CARE. Ideally, I would like to see patients a minimum of 4 weeks before scheduled surgery to help them build up the stores of nutrients that will help wounds heal faster and prevent infection. In general all supplements are stopped 1 week before surgery unless otherwise directed by the surgeon.
MUSCULOSKELETAL SUPPORT. Naturopathic Medicine works well with manual therapies to speed healing and improve your treatment outcomes. Patients will receive a personalized prescription and information about how their diet and lifestyle contributes to their pain.
MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT. Asking someone to regain mental stability while their brain chemistry is unbalanced is just plain unfair. Giving someone the nutritional building blocks for neurotransmitters, and herbs to help them utilize them, can result in much better therapy outcomes.
BOWEN THERAPY FOR CEREBRAL PALSY. Bowen therapy helps to decrease spasticity and also improve tone in children with cerebral palsy. Other Naturopathic therapies can help modulate other symptoms as needed.
CORPORATE HEALTHCARE. A corporate lifestyle requires a different approach to healthcare to be truly successful. I offer onsite health evaluations and treatments, immune boosting workshops to reduce absenteeism, brain optimization protocols to improve productivity, and mood support to uplift team spirit. The underlying goal is to improve productivity and quality of life.
Competencies for Optimal Practices in Integrated Environments is a list of competencies put together by the Academic Consortium for Complementary and Alternative Healthcare. I find it useful in informing my own interactions with other healthcare professionals. It may be of interest to you as well.
Please email me personally (firstname.lastname@example.org) to set up a meeting or a presentation at your place of work or mine. Looking forward to hearing from you!
