“I knew I wanted to be a Naturopathic Doctor since grade 4”, says Dr. Briana Botsford. “I was eleven years old when I did a poster presentation for a class at school. That year’s theme was Complementary and Alternative Medicine, so I got to explore naturopathic medicine.”

Due to her own interests and background as an Ironman Triathlete, Dr. Botsford primary clientele are female athletes and women who are active. “I choose to regularly go to conferences on women’s health as well as athletic performance, and I am involved in the athletics and triathlon community.”

“Naturopathic medicine offers many treatment options for women with women’s health issues that are lacking in conventional medicine. A lot of women are told to “just take the birth control pill”, but the population is becoming increasingly unsatisfied with this blanket answer. As Naturopathic Doctors, we have a lot to offer to compliment conventional medicine, especially with hormonal issues.”

When Dr. Botsford is not in the clinic she can usually be found riding her bike or training for a triathlon. She is excited to be competing at the World Triathlon in Edmonton this coming August.
