Dr. Dunstan attended UBC on full scholarship from 1995-1999, finishing with a prestigious bachelors degree from the faculty of medicine, in medical laboratory science (BMLSc). His ND training was undertaken at the Bouchart Institude of Naturopathic Medicine from 2005-2009. During the years following his undergraduate work, Brad took the opportunity to travel extensively abroad, spending time in Eastern Africa, Western Europe, and all over Asia, including several years teaching English in Taipei. It was during his time in Asia that Brad was first exposed to Traditional Chinese Medicine, and particularly Acupuncture. Having come from a very scientific minded background, his initial skepticism was completely overcome upon experiencing excellent results. This was the experience which set him firmly on the path towards Naturopathic medicine.
Dr. Dunstan can offer many different therapeutic options to each individual, depending on that person’s unique health circumstances. He has additional certifications in Prolotherapy, IV therapy, Allergy Desensitization, Acupuncture, and is licensed to prescribe pharmaceuticals. He also offers diet/lifestyle counselling, herbal medicines, neural therapy, trigger point injections, and a wide range of diagnostic laboratory testing options.
Brad spends almost all his spare time laughing and playing with his young sons Henry and Nathan, on beautiful Salt Spring Island. Walks in the park, to the market or swimming at the pool or at the beach, is where you might find them.
Some of the areas in which Dr. Dunstan has a special interest include pain syndromes, digestive complaints, cardiovascular concerns, paediatric health, endocrine (hormone) imbalances and chronic conditions of all kinds. Whatever health related difficulties you may be currently going through, you can rely on the fact that Dr. Dunstan will take the time to listen to your concerns and work with you to find the best therapeutic options available. A visit with Dr. Dunstan has been a major turning point for the lives of many of his patients, and could be for you also.
