Our Mission

As a team, our mission is to provide individuals who are suffering from tick-borne illnesses with high quality, courteous, integrative medical care. We endeavour to give them hope, while engaging and empowering them to take an active role in optimizing their health.

As physicians, in everything we do both personally and professionally, we are driven by our goal to radically improve the health of half a million people suffering with tick-borne illnesses by 2025 To achieve our mission, we integrate our professional and personal values of integrity, respect, compassion and honesty into patient care.

Leading By Example

We aim to practice what we preach and embody what we advocate.  This means exemplifying the values of integrative medicine in our personal and professional lives.

Our mission is to incorporate all the tools that we recommend to our patients into our daily lives.  So, as a team, we practice self-development using the approaches that we suggest, be that having a bone broth smoothie in the morning or completing a two week cleanse program together.  This not only enhances our own lives, but enables us to better empathize with our patients when we treat them.

This genuine understanding, derived from our personal experience, helps us to support our patients through the challenges that they might encounter on the path to wellness.

Partners In The Healing Process

Leading by example means that we will hold ourselves accountable for maintaining our own health and facilitating healing for our patients.

In seeking to uncover the factors that are preventing an individual from experiencing radiant health, we strive to be the experts that get to the root of the matter and solve the underlying cause of complex medical issues.

We achieve this as a team and in partnership with our patients by asking honest questions about what factors are preventing them from achieving health.  In doing this we treat ourselves and our patients with the utmost respect, compassion and integrity.

Dealing with a chronic medical illness can be complicated and frustrating. To improve outcomes and help ease this burden, we aim to treat every patient as if they were a member of our own family.  We are all members of the same healing team. We work together to understand how to best unburden each person’s self-healing mechanism, so that patients can realize that the source of true healing is within them.

Integrity In Advanced Medical Care

Our mission to help individuals to recover their health is driven by a deep understanding of the unfolding science in our areas of expertise.  As integrative medical practitioners we will continue to explore new scientific paradigms and uncover new areas of inquiry.

This aspect of our mission seeks to harness conventional medicine and alternative therapies, accepting neither uncritically, so that we can deliver pertinent, reliable and advanced medical care.  

Empowering Individuals To Live The Life They Want

We want to encourage individuals to realize that crucial steps can be taken at home to amplify their healing mechanisms.  Seemingly small steps, such as exercise, sleep, mindfulness and dietary choices will catalyze an overall change.

The more burdens an individual can remove, the better the self-healing process will be able to work.  Educating patients about this empowers them to recover their health, so that they can live the life that they truly want.  At Origins of Health, we create an environment which consistently takes account of patients’ wishes, so that they are empowered to actively participate in their own care.  

Striving To Be Our Best Selves And To Do Our Best For Others

In everything we do, for each other and for our patients, our overarching goal is to always do the very best that we can.  The sincerity of our mission and the strong values underpinning our professional medical expertise, inspire us to strive for awesomeness.

You deserve the best and our team strives for awesomeness. We want to provide you with the very best medical care available, because you deserve nothing short of the best.
