Dr. Randi Brown, ND

My name is Dr. Randi Brown, I am a licensed naturopathic physician practicing in Victoria, British Columbia. I graduated from the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in Vancouver, BC. Before my naturopathic medical training, I received my Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, where I also volunteered in my last year of study as a student athletic therapist. My experience working both on and off the field with various varsity athletes including the women's rugby and men's ice hockey teams ignited my passion for nutrition, science, research, and medicine

 

Being a competitive female hockey player from a young age I understood the important roles that physical activity and nutrition play in overall health and well-being, and this, along with a passion for science and academia eventually evolved into a career in natural medicine. 

 

I have received extensive and advanced training in perimenopause and menopause practice, hormone therapy prescribing, menstrual and reproductive health, as well as treatment and management of common gastrointestinal disorders such as IBS, chronic bloating, and SIBO. In addition, I have obtained additional certifications in acupuncture, and have pharmaceutical prescriptive rights. Having numerous tools to utilize from my medical "toolbox" enables me to provide each of my patients with an individualized approach. 

My naturopathic treatment foundations include supporting hormonal and reproductive health, improving digestion and gut health, and optimizing overall health and well-being.
