Doctors' Choice Nutrition is a naturopathic family medical practice owned and operated by Dr. Martha Reid, ND. Housed in a gorgeous heritage building in the heart of Vancouver’s vibrant West End, the clinic is the perfect place to unwind and seek naturopathic care. Dr. Reid is extensively trained in clinical and laboratory diagnoses, physical medicine, clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy, traditional Chinese medicine and lifestyle counselling. This comprehensive training enables her to effectively treat the full spectrum of medical conditions from acute to chronic ailments (see below for a list of commonly treated conditions).
Dr. Reid graduated from the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in 2010, receiving her Doctoral Diploma in Naturopathic Medicine and earning the prestigious Award for Clinical Excellence. Prior to medical school, Martha spent several years travelling and living overseas where she gained a deep respect for the integral relationship between people, places and medicine. This experience led first to an undergraduate degree in Anthropology and Environmental Studies, and eventually, to the study of Naturopathic Medicine.
True to the naturopathic medical model, a visit to Dr. Reid will begin with a complete health history, laboratory testing and physical exam. Through this process, Dr. Reid will assemble a comprehensive understanding of your health concerns. She will then choose from a variety of therapeutic tools to create an individualized treatment plan designed to meet your specific needs.
As a primary health care practitioner, one of Dr. Reid’s greatest joys is to witness patients being fully self-expressed and unencumbered by physical or emotional constraints. Dr. Reid will bring a limitless energy to the task of supporting you in achieving your goal --- whether it be maintaining great health or becoming a healthier you!
Dr. Reid currently lives with her husband and son in Vancouver, and creates joy and balance in her life through dance, yoga, music, swimming and her love of the outdoors.
