I’m Dr. Mel! I obtained a double major in chemistry and psychology with honors from Mount Allison University in New Brunswick before I completed my masters in medical neuroscience at Memorial University in Newfoundland; I then earned my naturopathic medical degree at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in Vancouver BC.
I come from Nova Scotia on the east coast of Canada but am thrilled to call Kelowna my home.
I believe that health is not a collection of symptoms, which lead to a diagnosis and a prescription. Covering up and eliminating symptoms does not remove the reason they appeared. To heal someone is to treat the entirety of who they are, and to dive deeply into potential underlying causes. It is my goal to get you results and to improve your health through a combination of counselling, nutrition, intravenous therapy, supplements, herbs, labs and medications.
My special focus is neuroendoimmunology – how your brain, your hormones and your digestive/immune system interact!
I dream big! I want to be great at what I do and aspire to be a leading expert in the field of naturopathic medicine. I want to heal and expand the health of as many people as I can and I hope that one of them is you!
