About Chris Ford
I was born and raised just outside of Toronto in the city of Oshawa, Ontario. After high school I completed my Honours Bachelor of Medical Sciences at the University of Western in London, Ontario where I learned valuable lessons about the health care system and discovered my passion for natural healing. The following year I spent living in Fernie, British Columbia where I solidified my interest in nature and discovered Naturopathic Medicine. I spent the next 4 years receiving extensive training at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto, Ontario. At CCNM I was actively involved in the student council and helped to organize and participate in many school events. During my intern year I treated patients at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic, Parkdale Community Health Centre and externed in Trail, British Columbia.
My main interests include using diet and lifestyle interventions, nutritional supplements, lab testing, acupuncture, intravenous (IV) therapy and botanical medicine as treatments. I strongly believe that the body has the potential to heal itself, given the appropriate conditions. My main goal in working with you is to gently and effectively bring balance back to your body in order to treat the root cause of the condition while motivating and empowering you to take control of your own health. I strive to work together with you in order to come up with an individualized treatment plan to ultimately improve your quality of life.
I will also be practicing in Creston on the first Wednesday of every month at Vital Health, the rest of the Wednesdays I am at Cranbrook Chiropractic and Wellness Centre.
