Dr. Ryan Lewis, ND is a licensed and board certified Naturopathic doctor of British Columbia with a passion for optimum health. He grew up in Montreal for most of his life where he completed a Bachelor of Science in Biology at Concordia University, before moving to Toronto to study at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, Canada’s premier institute for education and research in naturopathic medicine. While on his clinical rotations he had a chance to work at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic and a couple of community clinics around Toronto including, Queen West and Sherbourne Health Centre. This experience proved to be invaluable as it taught him how to provide naturopathic medical care to individuals and communities who are at risk and/or face barriers to accessing high quality health care services and support.
He brings all of his prior training and skills to our clinic with one primary goal – to do his part in helping to make Chilliwack and its nearby communities one that is vibrant, healthy and health-conscious. In his practice, he strives to deliver excellence in care to all of his patients and he makes it his mission to see his patients regain control of their health so that they get back to doing the things they love. It is his belief that having a more vibrant health does not have to feel like an elusive goal. By empowering his patients with the knowledge, skills and tools they need to become equal partners and active participants in their healthcare, he is able to show them how this is attainable. By working with him you will not only have the root cause of your health concerns addressed but, you will also learn how to implement the changes needed to sustain a healthier lifestyle.
