About Dr. Botsford
I am a Naturopathic Doctor located in Edmonton, Alberta, excited to work with all individuals looking to make small changes to achieve big improvements in their physical and mental health. I am trained in advanced procedures to address a variety of health conditions. I help many men and women who are fatigued, suffering from digestive distress or have hormone imbalances to feel more like themselves and thrive everyday. Life should never be a struggle and learning strategies to live a healthy and fulfilling life ensure my patients are performing their best.
I have great success working with mental health patients including older adults with mild cognitive impairment or Alzheimer’s disease, younger adults and adolescents with anxiety and/or depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, insomnia or post concussion syndrome. I have helped individuals return to work, school and their social groups after severe depression, anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder. I have helped people who haven’t slept well in years to feel rested and restored after a good night’s sleep. Removing brain fog, fatigue and improving energy after concussion or motor vehicle accident has allowed many of my patients to feel well enough to return to work after several months off.
As an Ironman Triathlete, I love to work with athletes of all abilities and sport preferences. From the weekend warrior to the elite, I’ve worked with athletes to tweak their nutrition or routine to feel stronger, run faster, lose or gain weight and perform better. I have helped runners return to marathons after stress fractures. I’ve helped cyclists and swimmers return to sport after shoulder dislocation or collarbone injury. I’ve assisted people who can’t lift their arm at all to return to full range of motion in 4-6 weeks.
I have advanced training in emergency medical procedures, Intravenous therapy, ozone therapy and oxidative medicine as well as prolotherapy and platelet rich plasma injection therapy. Read more about IV therapy in Edmonton and other advanced therapies here.
My Mission is to inspire others towards an active, healthy and balanced lifestyle.
