Dr. Alex Dragan BSc. ND

Dr. Alex Dragan began her Naturopathic journey in Montreal while completing her undergraduate degree in Biology.  It was there as a varsity athlete that she was exposed to the healing influence that her profession could have while recovering from various injuries incurred on the playing field.  The philosophies of Naturopathic Medicine resonated and took hold:  treat the whole person while establishing the root cause.

This fascination with the human body and its inherent healing powers inspired her to complete her studies at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in New Westminster, BC, one of only two such post graduate institutions in Canada.

Dr. Dragan was bestowed the Award of Clinical Excellence in her graduating year, an honour given to the practitioner who best demonstrates exemplary clinical diagnostic skills.  She was a representative for ProMedics, a Canadian leader in herbal supplements, and spent time as a youth leader in sport and in community groups.

When she is not treating patients or learning more about natural therapies, you can find her in the forest searching for herbs, playing soccer at the field or creating delicious plant-based meals.

Dr. Alex Dragan teaches Preventative Health Care at The Institute of Holistic Nutrition Vancouver campus.
