Dr. Swetlikoff

**Dr. Swetlikoff is a 1988 graduate of Bastyr University, where he obtained a degree in Naturopathic Medicine. A strong believer in science-based holistic health care, he has incorporated both traditional and progressive naturopathic philosophies into his practice. His interest in safe and effective alternatives for both the acute, chronic and severely ill has led him to specialize in what he calls interventional natural medicine.

Dr. Swetlikoff has earned a host of board certifications and has held a variety of BC and Canadian Naturopathic Association positions. He currently sits on several committees for the College of Naturopathic Physicians of British Columbia. For more than 20 years, he has developed and taught advanced courses for students and physicians.
