Plant Based Nutrition

Dr. Matt graduated from the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine after having completed his Bachelor’s of Science in Microbiology at the University of Victoria 4 years earlier. He holds board certifications in intravenous therapies advanced injection therapies, prescriptive authority, and acupuncture. Using an evidence-based approach, he creates individualized treatment protocols for each patient based on their health goals and unique lifestyles.

 

Dr. Matt has a particular passion for plant-based/vegan nutrition, physical medicine, and chronic disease. With additional training in nutrition, he holds a Plant-Based Nutrition Certification from Cornell University and the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies where he has authored multiple articles on the subject.

 

As a life-long athlete and teaching assistant for the physical medicine program at the Boucher Institute, his goal is to get his patients back in action as quickly as possible after an injury and performing at their absolute best. Dr. Matt helps his patients achieve this through a combination of physical therapies, and when needed, adjunctive treatments such as prolotherapy.

 

Prolotherapy is an advanced injection therapy that uses dextrose, to help stimulate a healing response in joints or tissues that typically receive very little blood flow, and procaine, which helps mitigate the pain response. Prolotherapy has consistently produced impressive results for conditions such as osteoarthritis, and can be a beneficial addition to one’s treatment protocol.

 

And finally, with his personal history of asthma and his father’s battle with heart disease, chronic illnesses have been an important focus of his throughout his entire education with the goal of helping his patients thrive, as both he and his father have. 

 

While he does have a specific focus in the areas mentioned above, Dr. Matt has experience treating people of all ages, backgrounds, and conditions, including:

  • Heart Disease

  • High Blood Pressure

  • Diabetes

  • Vegan/Vegetarian Diets

  • Digestive issues

  • Food sensitivities/intolerances

  • Cold/flu

  • Allergies

  • Weight Loss/Management

  • Fatigue

  • Skin conditions

  • Musculoskeletal issues

  • Pain

  • Autoimmune conditions

  • Anxiety

 

When he’s not spending time seeing patients or reading up on the latest nutrition science, Dr. Matt can be found playing soccer, practicing guitar, travelling, attending rock concerts, volunteering at an animal sanctuary, or enjoying the beach.
