Hi I'm Dr. Ibby
Let's transform your health through
education and empowerment.
Lifestyle medicine is not only my profession, it’s a way of life for me. In my mid 20’s I discovered lifestyle medicine although, at the time, I didn’t know it. I was simply curious about my health and the world in general. I had more questions than answers and I knew I couldn’t get the answers I wanted following the same path that I was on. The health paradigm at the time was no longer making sense to me but I also didn’t know where the answers were. So, I started experimenting with my health and lifestyle.
I became a vegetarian, started practicing yoga/ meditation, saw a Chinese herbalist doctor and started learning about how my environment affected my health. I moved to a different country from Canada to the US and embarked on studying to become a naturopathic doctor.
I didn’t come to this current place in my life and health after a week or month or year of making changes. My health is a culmination of 20+ years of choosing the unconventional path every single day. It’s not the easiest or the most popular path but it has served me well mentally, emotionally and physically. I made a conscious choice 2 decades ago to transform my life from the inside out. I can’t wait to see what kind of transformation we can achieve together.
My core belief around health is that it is more than an absence of disease and healthcare should prevent disease instead of merely focusing on detection. I have a doctorate in naturopathic medicine, a master's in Chinese Medicine and Environmental Studies and a bachelor's in Biology. I am a science geek who also acknowledges and respects other forms of healing that have served humanity for millennia.
