In Her Own Words
A Word From Dr. Alex Chan
Growing up in a family of complementary health care practitioners, I knew from a young age that I wanted to become a Naturopathic Doctor. I respect the wisdom of the body and believe that with the right tools, we can promote self-healing. I have a particular interest in the utilization of Naturopathic Medicine, alongside conventional care, to promote health. With this integrated and complementary philosophy, I am drawn to common chronic conditions, such as coronary artery disease, heart disease and type II diabetes, that are intrinsically linked with lifestyle management.
Additionally, I have a particular interest in complex chronic disease like cancer and Lyme disease. Cancer is a growing epidemic that affects 1 in 3 people in North American society. Many people, including myself, have watched loved ones battle with cancer diagnoses and wished there was something they could do beyond the conventional treatment. To this end, I have sought out specific training to provide care for cancer patients; I utilize natural supplements, intravenous therapies, and targeted nutrition as needed to address the primary illness, as well as side effects from conventional therapy.
Outside of Integrative, I am the co-founder of Hydrator Elite, an electrolyte drink company aimed at providing the healthiest sports rehydration option on the market. I am fascinated by the biohacking trend and interested in looking at all aspects of health and athletic optimization.
