Who We Are
Paradigm Naturopathic Medicine has had a long history in the heart and mind of Dr. Chris Spooner. In February of 2014 the actual Physical Space became a reality.
Dr. Spooner envisioned a space that was comfortable, welcoming and accepting, we hope you feel that when you enter.
Welcome to Paradigm Naturopathic Medicine where we do what we love and love what we do.
Dr. Chris Spooner
A Personal Message from Dr. Spooner
The majority of my patients have very little experience with naturopathic medicine and are coming to me because they have been referred to me by family, friends and other health care providers. Almost all of them are wrestling with information overload and are turning to me to help them figure things out.
I look at my role as a bridge between conventional and complementary medicine.
My goal is to help you understand what is happening in your body and to help you find out the best approach for your needs. I spend the time to listen to you, understand who you are and address your health concerns. I work with you to develop individualized treatment plans that work with your body’s natural healing ability, using the most effective methods possible.
I always aim to educate and empower my patients so that they are aware of the control they have with regards to their health and have the knowledge they need to make the health care decisions that are best for them.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your health goals.
In health, Dr. Chris Spooner B.Sc., N.D.

Evelyn was inspired to pursue a career in the nursing field by her fun loving dad who greatly enjoyed working with both patients and staff during his time as a nursing orderly. She graduated with a Diploma of Nursing from the Mack Centre of Nursing of Niagara College in 1977.
Over the next 30 years Evelyn worked as a Registered Nurse in various cities in both the US and Canada, gaining experience in a variety of fields including: surgery, special care, urology, ICU/CCU, cardiology and chronic care.
She stepped away from the Nursing Profession in 2007 to live and work at the lifestyle, health teaching centre of Silver Hills Guest House, in the foothills of the Monashee Mountains.
In 2013, Evelyn joined Dr. Spooner’s practice as an IV therapist and is excited to continue working patients and the team at the new offices of Paradigm Naturopathic Medicine
