We are so happy to announce that we have a new Naturopathic Doctor joining us!
🙌 Please help us in welcoming Dr. Katia De Marco, ND...
Dr. De Marco grew up in Montreal, QC in an Italian family; she speaks fluent French and conversational Italian. She graduated from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, ON.
She followed her love of plants and trees out west to BC and is now happy to call Victoria her new home.
Dr. De Marco believes that health is a reflection of our physical, emotional, and mental well-being, and that true health comes when these elements are all in balance.
Dr. De Marco works to find the root cause of your health concerns using laboratory testing, physical exams, and by doing a thorough patient history.
Using herbal medicine, acupuncture, and nutritional and lifestyle counselling, as well as BHRT, IV therapy, and prescribed pharmaceuticals (when necessary), Dr. De Marco aims to support the body and its innate ability to bring itself back to health.
Her goal is to provide you effective tools that fit into your lifestyle to rediscover, and maintain, radiant health by creating a safe space for you to discuss any questions, concerns, hopes, and goals that might have you on your health journey.
She has a special interest in digestive health, women's health and healthy aging.
🌲 Dr. De Marco will be working with us from Wednesdays to Fridays from 9am to 4pm.
📞 Give us a call @ (250) 881-7800 to book your appointment with Dr. De Marco.
We will be closed for Christmas Holidays from December 23, 2020 until January 4, 2021.
Last day to pre-order supplements is Friday December 11, 2020.
(This is in order to ensure we can get them here by closing; COVID has slower delivery times)
PLEASE book your required appointments well in advance, as by December, we generally have very limited spaces and may not be able to accommodate if left too late.
We are pleased to now offer limited in-person services:
Consultations (with Dr. Chris only)
Supplement pick-up (pre-pay or pick-up at office)
Please be patient and follow any directions from staff as we do our best to serve you while maintaining current BC health recommendations.
When visiting our office, we ask the following of you:
* No more than 3 people (besides staff) allowed in the reception area at one time (and please wait on the designated spots).
* If you see a line-up, please wait outside 'til one person leaves (one in, one out).
* Please arrive on time for your appointment. If you are early, please wait in your car 'til your appointment time.
* Please stay home if you are not feeling well - we can still provide a phone/virtual consultation.
* If picking up supplements, you can pre-pay or pay at the designated counter. It would be best to pre-order to make sure that we have what you need in stock.
* We suggest that you wear a mask - if you do not have one, we can provide you with one.
Be kind and stay safe :)

As soon as we reach adulthood, the entire body begins to age!
Generally, aging is a gradual process, except in the cases of cancers, heart diseases, stroke, depression, and Alzheimer's. In these lethal illnesses, people experience large bursts of aging mainly due to the defaults of the brain's neurotransmitters. These electrical signals directly affect negatively in regulating all organs, hormonal glands, and the entire body system. These electrical signals either slow down or speed up in various body parts, thereby accelerating the aging process. Symptoms present themselves in stopping or pausing every part of the body. This occurs through multiple 'pauses,' starting in our brain, immune system, heart, blood vessels, hormonal/endocrine system, bones, muscles, skin, senses, lungs, nutrient absorption/assimilation, kidneys, bladder, and DNA/gene decline.
