Dr. Carolina Leon’s Approach
Dr. Leon is convinced that the health state and wellness of people depend on not just their physical, but also their emotional and mental states. Thus, her treatment plans encompass all factors. She looks at the body as a whole, rather than by compartmentalizations. She integrates symptoms by acknowledging the connections within the body. Patients feel and are fully taken care of. A significant percentage of people do not respond well to a variety of drug treatments – the reality is that a simple cure for all cannot be expected. Each body has its unique biochemistry. Dr. Leon’s treatment plans include individualized dietary recommendations, exercise, hormonal regulation, sleep improvement and stress reduction, immune and inflammatory regulation, and mood stabilization. Herbal medicine, nutraceuticals (supplements), and advanced IV therapies are often used to support the health goals desired.
Background of Dr. Carolina Leon, Naturopathic Physician
Dr. Leon is originally from Mexico. She is the daughter of two Medical Doctor Specialists. Thus from a very young age, she was exposed to patients in the hospital setting, where she watched her parents assess, diagnose, and treat patients. From that point onwards, she knew she wanted to learn the Medical sciences and make a difference in people’s lives. Her main goal is to keep people healthy and optimize their health, prevent them from getting sick and improve their health outcomes whenever their health declines.
Dr. Carolina moved to Vancouver for her undergraduate and graduate studies. She studied at UBC, where she completed a Bachelor of Arts, majored in Cognitive Systems: Cognition and Brain Stream. Followed by a year of research doing EEG studies at a Psychophysics and Cognitive Neuroscience UBC Lab. She did her Naturopathic Medical career at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine. Throughout her career, she volunteered at Hospitals and medical clinics in Mexico every year during the summer and did further training under her father’s supervision doing pediatric neonatology work.
