Dr. Meaghan McCollum
Born and raised on the gulf islands, I bring my love for nature and my passion for living well to my naturopathic practice. I am one of those nerds who truly practices what I preach.
As a young adult, I developed a passion for all things nutrition which sent my on my journey of becoming a naturopathic doctor. My educational trajectory included UBC for nutrition studies and then the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine.
How do I practice? I love collaborating with people on their healthcare journey! To me that’s truly what it is – collaboration. I believe that given the right tools and cues most people are the best judge of what is happening with their body and their health. Many just need a little guidance, education and encouragement.
I very much enjoy using botanical medicine to help assist the body’s natural healing process. The natural brilliance of plants works so very synergistically with human physiology.
I also personally practice meditation and mindfulness and am passionate about sharing this with others. A mindfulness or meditation practice can be the lynchpin of a person’s path to health. Using this and other techniques (including botanicals), my main goal when working with people is to balance the nervous system which in turn allows for healing.
My process includes reviewing and analyzing laboratory results regularly to ensure we are on the right path, as well as working in concert with any other healthcare providers on your team.
Who do I work with? Humans who are interested in balancing their hormones, managing stress better, getting healthier and more vibrant, aging gracefully, feeling amazing and connecting with their true self.
