Serving the Nanaimo Community with Naturopathic Medicine

Have you seen a naturopathic doctor in Nanaimo?  Maybe for preventative care, to try to find the root cause of your health concerns, or maybe because you do not have a current family doctor and are in need of some primary care while you are on a wait list?  Because you are paying out of pocket, how can you ensure that you are investing in seeing the best naturopathic doctor in Nanaimo or Vancouver Island? See link here

One of the best ways of knowing you are seeing the right naturopathic physician is to get a “word of mouth” referral from asking friends or family.  If you are new to the area, or do not know anyone who has a referral for you, then consider the following skills and qualities to look for in a clinic.

Arbour Wellness Centre offers an up-to-date website that showcases our clinic’s skills and services.  Most naturopathic doctors are licensed to prescribe prescriptions, but not all are.  If you may be needing a prescription, this may be something you would want to include in your search.

Naturopathic doctors are also licensed to be able to perform:

  • IV therapy
  • nutrient injections such as B12 and other shots
  • prolotherapy injections
  • PRP (platelet rich plasma)
  • acupuncture
  • physical exams, breast and Pap exams
  • laser therapy (far infrared light therapy)
  • food sensitivity testing
  • and carry a professional supplement dispensary for accessing top nutraceutical brands
  • and order LifeLabs and other diagnostic tests using blood, urine, saliva or stool samples

Common conditions we see daily include:

  • evaluating hormone conditions like thyroid, adrenal glands, sex hormones, progesterone, estrogen, testosterone
  • chronic fatigue and Long Covid
  • digestive disorders like IBS, colitis, Crohn’s, celiac
  • pain management
  • geriatric concerns
  • anemias
  • and many other disorders.

At Arbour Wellness Centre we have a diverse group of naturopathic doctors: Dr.Karen Fraser, Dr.Brandi Honaizer, Dr.David Milanovich, who share the above skills whereby we can make referrals within the clinic to cover all of these services.  Our naturopathic clinic has been proudly serving the Nanaimo area for over 20 years, and our naturopaths have a combined knowledge base of over 50 years!  We are leaders in Nanaimo, Vancouver Island, and British Columbia by offering new and advanced therapies, as well as staying current with research and continuing education.

We spend more time with patients where we are getting to know your health care goals.  We give you a safe space for discussing your complex needs, and answering any questions you may have.  Please note we also offer telehealth consults if you are unable to come into the clinic, are sick, or do not live locally or away on vacation! Our naturopathic skills and services are also supported by a staff who cares, and we even give you direct access to your naturopathic doctor via their clinic email address.

In short, we make you our priority!
