Anybody who knows me knows I love to help people. I was raised on a farm in central BCs Cariboo district. This is where I learned many of the values and skills I use as resources every day - problem solving, the power of the natural world, the value of hard work and perseverance (to name a few). My life's journey prior to naturopathic medicine included forays into a wide diversity of fields; from cancer research to delivery driver, from the ancient craft of timber-framing to biotechnology, from production labourer to high-rise tower design. It is this broad spectrum of experience that allows me to have some insight into most of my patient's daily lives: the struggles and inspirations specific to them.
It was my role as a parent that truly led me into naturopathic medicine. As a young man holding my own children, I felt overwhelmed with responsibility. I wanted to do as much as possible to support my sons as they grew. I learned about health and treatments that were not part of the mainstream medical model; I became impassioned. I could not learn enough; I knew I had found my calling. My road to ultimately practicing naturopathic medicine was long and convoluted. Balancing family life and getting an education was certainly an enormous challenge. I earned a BSc in Chemistry and Biochemistry from UNBC, a MSc in Pharmaceutical Sciences from UBC and, finally, a Naturopathic Doctorate from Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine.
Areas of Practice Focus:
Working in the forefront of functional, individualized medicine is something that I feel very privileged to provide for my patients. Even if your needs are outside of the areas mentioned above, the principles are the same: you can be helped. My job is to identify, and help you remove, the blockages that are preventing you from healing. I do not treat conditions, I treat people – people like you.

For the first time in 5 years Polo Health has had to make some price modifications to stay current with the rising costs that we are being faced with. There have recently been steep increases on medical supplies and injectables, and as such, we have had to raise the prices on select services and treatments.
We have, and always will, remain mindful of these price increases and how they impact your ability to continue receiving treatment. We strive to keep our prices affordable to allow for ease of access, and will continue doing so.
Please be assured we hope and plan to maintain these prices moving forward as best we can. What you can expect is a $5.00 to $15.00 increase on select services and treatments. The front desk team will be able to specify which treatments and services this applies to.
We thank you for all your continued support, we truly appreciate you and are grateful for that. We will continue to provide the best level of care and support moving forward.
Cheer and all the best in 2022.
Thank you from the entire Polo Health and Longevity Centre Team
