Dr. Cameron McIntyre, B.Sc, N.D.

I am a board certified naturopathic doctor with over a dozen years of clinical experience. In my practice, I strive to empower patients to live healthier lives, always looking at everyone individually and asking the "why" questions when it comes to health concerns.

I am excited to join the VNC team! I spend a great deal of clinical time in the areas of stress management, allergies, brain helath, gut health, hormone health, immune health, skin health, insomnia and inflammation. I also have advanced clinical training in DAN! (defeat autism now) and IMMH (integrated medicine for mental health). I have treated many children on the autistic spectrum over my career as well as those dealing with the challanges of mental health concerns.

Using electrodermal testing, conventional laboratory testing and advanced laboratory testing for issues like allergies, toxins, hormones, infections and nutrient deficiencies. I strive to uncover what is going on with each patient and craft and individualized treatment plan that addresses their needs.

My previous education includes a BSc in Neuroscience from the University of British Columbia and a medical imaging degree from the British Columbia Institute of Technology. This is where I initially developed my passion for health and a keen interest in mind/body connections to healing.

I have also been active serving my profession for the past many years, sitting on the board of directors for both the British Columbia Naturopathic Association and the College of Naturopathic Physicians of British Columbia. My last term was as the Board and finance chair for the College.

Personally I enjoy trail runs in North Vancouver with my springer spaniel, cooking and eating great food, playing and coaching hockey, music, and spending time with family and friends.

I consider it an honour and privilege to be of serivce to you.
