Welcome to the naturopathic medical practice of Dr. Karina Wickland. This website is intended to be a resource for new and current patients to learn more about who I am and what I do. My clinic is in Valleyview Centre in the Cowichan Valley. Ten minutes south of Duncan, Valleyview is at the crossroads between Cobble Hill and Cowichan Bay, just off the Island Highway. The clinic is located behind Drumroaster Coffee – directions are here. I have extra training in several areas including:
- Diabetes and insulin resistance/metabolic syndrome – comprehensive management including diet, lifestyle and prescription medication
- Brain health – dementia prevention, anxiety and depression
- Hormonal concerns – PMS, perimenopause, menopause, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and adrenal issues
- Digestive issues including ulcerative colitis, celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, IBS and SIBO
- Bowen technique
