Hello! I'm Dr. Brittany Schamerhorn
I am passionate about helping patients achieve vibrant and successful lives through individualized treatment plans tailored to their specific goals and health concerns.
BECOMING AN ND
I obtained my B.Sc from University of British Columbia with a focus in Biology, Biochemistry, and Psychology. Here I was introduced to various aspects of health and became curious about finding a way to integrate them in achieving optimal health. I then completed my naturopathic medical training at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in Vancouver. I was honored and grateful to receive the Clinical Excellence Award upon graduation. I have a passion for education am committed to continuous learning.
MY PRACTICE FOCUS
I have a keen interest in hormonal imbalances, autoimmune diseases, and mental health (including stress management). It is my passion to motivate and inspire patients to take control of their health and wellness by empowering them with the right education and tools.

Follow me along on social media (drbschamerhorn.nd). In the meantime here's a summary:
I LOVE reading & books (I usually have 3 on the go at once) - almost always non-fiction
I truly believe in the principle doctor as teacher. When I am not in clinic I teach Anatomy and Biomedicine at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine
Walks by the ocean are my favourite way to end a day. Days off are either spent by the ocean or exploring in the mountains.
Lastly, I LOVE (LOVE!) coffee
