Dr. Ashely Gordon
Dr. Ashely Gordon is a graduate of the University of B.C. (BSc, Cell Biology and Genetics) and The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto. The first two years at the College follow a standard medical school curriculum, branching thereafter into naturopathic disciplines. Dr. Gordon concluded her training with a one-year internship at the largest naturopathic clinic in North America. As a Naturopathic Doctor, she has been practicing for 12 years, the majority of time in her hometown of Squamish, and has owned/operated Garibaldi Health Clinic for the past 7 years. Her focus lies in Women’s Health, Gastrointestinal Disorders, Cancer, Pediatrics, Endocrine Malfunction, Autoimmune Disorders, Musculoskeletal Injuries, Nervous System Imbalances, and Preventative Medicine.
Dr. Gordon’s clinical specialties include: Clinical Nutrition, Botanical Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine/Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Hydrotherapy, Lifestyle Counselling, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, Bowen Technique, Prolotherapy, IV (Intravenous) Vitamin/Mineral and Chelation Therapy.
Dr. Gordon is a member of the B.C. Naturopathic Association (BCNA), the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND), and is licensed by the College of Naturopathic Physicians of B.C. (CNPBC). She is also a certified practitioner in the Bowen Technique, IV vitamin/mineral & Chelation Therapies, Prolotherapy, and Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome. In addition, Dr. Gordon has prescriptive authority and therefore can prescribe medications as she see fits and refill any ongoing prescriptions.
Naturopathic and conventional medicine, as practiced by physicians and surgeons, are complementary, not competing disciplines. Conventional medicine attacks disease by intervening with drugs or surgery. Although its methods are highly effective, there are often undesirable side-effects. Antibiotics, for example, have a scattergun effect, damaging the body’s immune system along with the targeted organisms. Naturopathic medicine takes the opposite approach, combating disease by supporting the natural defenses of the body. Both disciplines have their place; neither alone is the complete answer to health.
We Naturopathic Doctors take a holistic approach, treating the entire human organism, rather than just the immediate disease. We look for the causes of unhealth, rather than merely ameliorating symptoms. And we emphasize prevention as opposed to dealing with problems that have already developed. Although Naturopathic Doctors are trained in an array of skills, we put our ultimate trust in the natural capacity of humans for health. As a species we survived for eons before the invention of modern medicine. Our mandate is to support that innate healing capacity.
