Healing, natural therapies can improve the quality of your life and I hope that you’ll find lots of helpful information here that will increase your understanding of natural medicine. Thanks for visiting!
I’ve been part of the conventional medical community for more than 25 years, practicing first in Great Britain and more recently in western Canada. An inquisitive mind and a curious streak coupled with my desire to help people lead healthy, active lives led me into the world of natural herbal therapies and there I found my passion.
Holistic, Naturopathic Approach
I qualified in Medicine at the University of Southampton, England in 1986 and moved to Canada in 1991, first working in a rural Manitoba practice, then as Chief of Staff at the local hospital. In 1992 I relocated to British Columbia, and by the mountains and the ocean I began my journey into holistic or natural medicine.
I trained with the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada and began to integrate this method of treatment into my conventional practice and was so impressed with the results that I knew intuitively that incorporating natural therapies with conventional medicine would greatly benefit my patients.
I returned to Britain to continue training in natural medicine, first in homeopathy and then in nutrition and environmental medicine with Dr. Julian Kenyon.
I currently practice in a Vancouver health care centre where I use natural therapies along with conventional treatments, working closely with a team of naturopathic doctors.
Natural Therapies and Conventional Medicine
My vision for the future is for natural therapies to be used alongside conventional medicine within all publicly funded medical facilities, ensuring the very best outcome for people living with both acute and chronic illness.
To your health,
