Dr Daniel Yee was born, raised and trained in Western Canada. A graduate of the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine, located in New Westminster, Dr. Yee completed 2 years of residency at the Boucher Institute.
Dr. Yee’s approach to treatment is eclectic – because of the broad range of treatment types that a Naturopathic doctor can offer, it allows Dr. Yee to look at your case from many different angles. Dr. Yee has a focus and keen interest in Chinese medicine and acupuncture, but also is one of the first Naturopathic physicians in the province to be certified to prescribe pharmaceuticals. This blending of medical approaches allows Dr. Yee to treat a wide variety of conditions, with a firm philosophical grounding in the principles of Naturopathic Medicine:
1. First, to do no harm
2. To treat the cause of disease
3. To believe in the inherent, self-healing nature of the body
4. To have preventative medicine be a focus
5. The doctor as a teacher
6. To treat the patient as a whole person (mind/body/spirit)
The application of the 6 naturopathic principles along with multiple treatment types allows Dr. Yee to approach each case in a highly individualized manner – sometimes an appropriate dose of a pharmaceutical drug is needed, sometimes nutrition and lifestyle will create a cure.
Dr. Yee has a focus in treating chronic pain, and also has experience treating digestive disorders, tyoid/adrenal issues, autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, female conditions such as menopause and painful periods.
The above conditions listed may be treated with diet and lifestyle counseling, nutritional supplementation, herbal medicine, Chinese medicine and acupuncture, dilutional and highly dilutional therapy (homeopathy), pharmaceuticals, Neural therapy/biopuncture and chelation/intravenous therapy. When seeing Dr. Yee, he will choose the best treatment approach for you – it may be one, or a combination of the above treatments – all with the intention of a real cure (not just symptom management), and an avoidance of side effects.
