Dr. Cathryn Coe
Dr. Cathryn Coe is extremely pleased to be the Owner and Clinic Director of Marine Drive Naturopathic Clinic. Born and raised on the North Shore, it was always her dream to open a modern, spa-like clinic in which to practice her passion – helping patients to understand the root cause of their illness and offer options to help them look and feel their best.
Dr. Coe first became interested in Naturopathic Medicine as a teenager when she was under the care of an established ND for allergies and food intolerances.
Her health improved dramatically and she became interested in a model of medicine that used a wide variety of natural therapies, along with diet, in order to improve health. She graduated from UBC and later went on to study at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine, graduating in 2005. She spent several years serving as a shift supervisor at the school’s teaching clinic, as well as taught several business classes.
Currently she serves as the Chair of the Patient Relations Committee, as well as serves on the Scope of Practice Committee, both for the College of Naturopathic Physicians of BC.
She has several areas of focus in her practice, including:
- Thyroid health (hypo/hyper, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Grave’s disease, post thyroidectomy)
- Autoimmune diseases including SLE, Sjogren’s syndrome, RA
- Digestive health including colitis, celiac disease, IBS, gastric ulcers, duodenal ulcers, diverticulitis, diverticulosis
- Skin conditions including acne, rosacea, dermatitis
- Interstitial cystitis, BPH
- Women’s health including PCOS, infertility, IVF support, menstrual irregularities, perimenopause and menopause
- Men’s health including BPH, low libido, anxiety and depression, andropause
- Mental health including anxiety, depression
- Insomnia of various origins
- Alopecia (hair loss of various origins)
Dr. Coe’s hope is to help patients to understand the possible cause of their health concerns and determine safe and effective treatment options. In her spare time she enjoys cooking, travel, and exploring the North Shore with her husband and young son.
