About Dr. Colin Race

As a Naturopathic Doctor, my practice philosophy begins with understanding the patient, their body, and exactly what it is they need to get better. This means looking beyond just the symptoms, which are only the tip of the iceberg, to the fundamental nature of the patient.

I have a diverse family practice and treat patients with a wide variety of health concerns. One of my roles within Vive is to provide specific treatments to our patients including prolotherapy, integrative cancer care, intravenous (IV) nutrient therapy, allergy treatment and a number of other specialized therapies that fall under the umbrella of Naturopathic Medicine.

Outside of the clinic, in my moments away from Naturopathic Medicine, I try to find as much time as I can to play soccer and tennis. I get into the mountains as often as I can. Camping, hiking, snowshoeing and skiing are some of my favourite stress relieving activities!

Prior to meeting Dr. Colin I didn’t know anything about non-traditional methods for cold and flu prevention. For the past 3 years I have followed Dr. Colin’s program, without traditional flu shots, and have found that my cold and flu symptoms have been significantly reduced, in fact I haven’t had any this season. My 10 year old also benefits with similar results. Above all Dr. Colin takes the time to explain everything and is a great listener.

My husband started seeing Dr Colin about six weeks ago about a bad back. He is now starting to become a believer in Holistic Medicine. Dr Colin has helped convert him with his warm “bedside manner” and by not suggesting anything drastic while accepting my husband’s “different” beliefs. His back is slowly getting better for which we are both very grateful. I am now recommending Dr Colin to my friends and acquaintances.
