About Dr. Riley Anderson
I am a licensed naturopathic doctor located in Nanaimo, BC. My mission is to help patients achieve their health goals through evidence-based treatment plans that are effective and easy to integrate. I treat a wide variety of conditions including mood disorders, addiction, auto-immunity, digestive concerns, hormonal health, and chronic pain. I firmly believe that every patient has the capacity to overcome their struggles.
When I was in my 20s, I started to notice symptoms related to overlapping mental health issues. My coping mechanisms included a litany of bad behaviours and it has taken a lot of tactful effort to get things back on track. I understand the complexities of human behaviour from a scientific and personal perspective. When I finally got better, I used a holistic approach that I now guide my patients through.
Over the past several years I have dedicated myself to researching the best treatment protocols by borrowing from psychology, Western medicine, nutrition and herbal medicine, and Traditional Chinese Medicine (acupuncture). My treatment plans give my patients the tools they need to improve their health outcomes.
