About the clinic:

Acacia Health is a busy multi-practitioner alternative health clinic with two locations in beautiful Vic West.

At Acacia, we believe that true health and healing involves mind, body, and spirit. We are committed to creating collaborative partnerships with every client in order to establish a responsive, caring and compassionate foundation for healing and positive change.

Acacia Dockside houses the FNC every other Saturday. They have been providing free naturopathic care since early 2007. They do this because they believe strongly that everyone should have access to naturopathic medicine regardless of income.

The FNC is a partnership between Dr. Amy Gilchrist, ND, Dr. Kristin Schnurr, ND, Acacia Health, and Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine. The FNC exists solely on the generosity of its partners and generous members of the community, although this is a paid position.
