Dr. Luke Mountjoy is a naturopathic doctor who aims to educate and empower his patients to act towards optimizing their health now, so they can live life at its best. Dr. Luke recognizes that there is more to health than the absence of disease and he strives to maximize his patient’s health-span, by optimizing their physical, cognitive, and emotional wellbeing through extensive testing and detailed personalized care plans.
Having always been fascinated by human health and behaviour, Dr. Luke received a Bachelor of Science Honours degree in Biological Psychology at the University of Victoria, writing his thesis in cognitive psychology. Confident that naturopathic medicine provides the ideal therapeutic environment, he then graduated from the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine.
Optimizing our health requires avoiding chronic diseases. Dr. Luke is passionate about preventing and treating cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, diabetes, and cognitive decline. Through personal and clinical experience Dr. Luke acknowledges that the physical body is often the first place we notice discomfort and he is one of few naturopathic physicians utilizing ultrasound-guided injections to aid in the management of chronic pain, arthritis, and sports-related injuries. Lastly, as a male naturopathic physician, he has a special interest in men’s health. He takes time with all his patients to address the root cause of their concerns, building health from the ground up, as opposed to strictly treating the symptoms.
Dr. Luke’s naturopathic approach combines modern medical science with centuries of wisdom from Eastern and European modalities. He acknowledges that the foundation of health begins with supporting the body’s natural instinct to sustain wellbeing through dietary and lifestyle choices. Relying on tools like advanced testing, Dr. Luke creates results-oriented treatment plans incorporating nutrition, exercise, nutraceuticals, botanical medicine, IV therapy, ultrasound-guided injections, acupuncture, and pharmaceuticals as necessary.
