Meet Dr. Meghan van Drimmelen 

Dr. Meghan van Drimmelen BSc., ND
Co-Founder of Victoria's premier naturopathic clinic, Juniper Family Health.

As a naturopathic physician, my job is to support others achieve sustainable health and wellness. I offer personalized healthcare. that focuses on informed decision-making, and uncovering the underlying cause of dysfunction and disease.   

In my practice I use a wide range of natural therapies, I encourage healthy lifestyle and stress reduction, and will prescribe medications when needed. I spend time educating my patients around these treatment options, and work with my patients to empower them in their health journey.

 

Throughout the years I have dedicated my practice to the care of women, children, and families. Areas of specific interest include childhood developmental milestone checks, treatment for immune, allergies, skin and digestive concerns, as well as support for mental health, fatigue, hormone balance, menopause, fertility, and pregnancy.

My idea of healthy living, is in essence, ‘balance.’  Balancing work and home life, the food we put in our bodies, and the time spent for ourselves and connecting with others, all influence our health.  I feel incredibly fortunate to be practicing as a naturopath in the wonderful community of Victoria BC.  For me, ‘balance’ includes getting out in nature and exploring the beaches and parks of Vancouver island.  My idea of a perfect day includes picking up food from Moss Street Market and heading to Cadboro Bay Beach with my family and dogs.
