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. I have a general family practice and see people of all ages. 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
  • Preconception, pregnancy and pediatrics
  • Hormonal concerns – PMS, perimenopause, menopause, andropause, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and adrenal issues
  • Digestive issues including ulcerative colitis, celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, IBS and SIBO
  • Detoxification – using diet, herbal medicines, drainage remedies and chelation agents for heavy metals
  • Acute and chronic pain – using dietary changes, herbal and neutraceutical supplements and Bowen technique
