Ryan graduated from the University of Western Ontario in 2009 with an honour specialization in Medical Sciences under the Schulich Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry. In his last year of undergraduate studies, he completed his thesis on variables that impact the quality of life in patients suffering from congestive heart failure. He later went on to do his Master in Physiology studying gender dependant surgical approaches for knee replacements in patients suffering from Osteoarthritis. He completed his master’s program and the highly innovative Joint and Motion Program funded by the Canadian Institute of Health Research. For his research, he received the Western Graduate Research Scholarship, Schulich Graduate Research Scholarship and Canadian Institute of Health Research Joint and Motion Program Bursary.
After completing his Naturopathic Program, he dedicated the focus of his practice to mid-life health with an emphasis on cardiovascular health, glandular and hormonal health, diabetes, and weight loss. As part of cardiovascular health, he has helped patients lower their blood pressure, and cholesterol and improve peripheral circulation. To support patients with weight loss, he focuses on liver detox, regulating cortisol levels, improving insulin sensitivity and reducing gut inflammation. For auto-immune disorders, he first identifies the cause of dysregulation followed by harmonizing the immune system and reducing inflammation.
In addition to his Naturopathic treatment, he received training and certification to perform and analyze a Live Blood Cell Microscope to identify the cause of inflammation and identify the risk of heavy metals in the blood, and parasites. This diagnostic tool has been critical in identifying the root cause of metabolic dysregulation as seen with exercise-resistant weight gain and chronic fatigue.
Ryan’s treatments focus on lifestyle modification, patient education, herbal and homeopathic interventions, and nutritional and exercise guidance. In addition, his extensive training in Traditional Chinese Medicine will be used to accelerate the rate of recovery and rehabilitation. This will include diagnostic-based acupuncture, cupping (for muscle and joint pain), and specific nutritional recommendations to create a balance between yin and yang.
