Welcome to Okanagan Naturopathic Healthcare
As a Naturopathic Physician, I strive to educate and empower patients so they can make informed choices about and be active participants in their healthcare. My practice focuses on maintaining wellness and disease prevention, as well as the treatment of various acute and chronic illnesses, pain management and healthy aging. I use traditional and progressive naturopathic therapies, either separately or integrated with conventional medicine, to achieve optimal health results.
My Philosophy on Healthcare
I believe it is my responsibility to instill trust and confidence in patients so that a meaningful, professional working relationship is established. When this is established, a truly holistic understanding of the individual’s physical, mental and spiritual health can be more easily achieved. This results in the opportunity to provide an individualized treatment approach which targets the whole person, as well as the underlying cause of the condition or disease, so that optimal healing occurs.
As a primary healthcare physician, I am committed to helping every patient maintain or achieve optimal health. This often requires assisting the patient in recognizing obstacles which maybe impeding their good health and guiding them to reach their optimal health. This will be achieved through listening empathetically to each patient’s concerns and health issues and conducting the necessary assessments. This will occur in a trusting and confidential setting so a sincere working alliance can be established. Then, in collaboration with the patient, devise and individualize a treatment plan that will target the patient’s health needs keeping in mind the importance of the body, mind and spirit. The specific healing and/or preventative program will aim to maximize vitality, enhance one’s quality of life, as well as extend one’s longevity.
