Meet Dr. Hayley Owens, ND
As a Naturopathic Physician, I know that the body has an innate ability to heal itself. Our bodies desire health, but certain factors can inhibit it from doing so; for example stress, diet, and lifestyle. Symptoms, such as bloating or elevated blood pressure, are our body’s way of signalling that there is a problem. I strongly believe in identifying and treating the root cause in order to achieve relief, rather than just suppressing the symptoms. By doing a thorough intake of your case, which would include a physical examination and laboratory tests, I can determine what these obstacles are so that, together, we can alleviate the root cause and bring your body back into balance.
My path to becoming a Naturopathic Doctor was less than conventional, as I used to be a Chartered Accountant and Management Consultant in Vancouver for a number of years. After some soul searching, I decided to follow my passion for medicine and serving people, which would change the course of my life forever. I enrolled at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine, where I completed the four year Doctorate Program. Every day I am grateful for taking the leap to follow my heart and become a Naturopathic Doctor. I am so passionate about this medicine, and most importantly, what it can do for you.
I run a general family practice, and have a special interest in Female Wellness, Pain Management and Digestive health. My scope of practice consists of the following:
