Naturopathic medicine is a functional approach to health. Naturopathic doctors assess the whole body and work to remove the cause of illness while also addressing the symptoms. Naturopathic doctors are trained to diagnose and treat using a variety of different approaches:
- Dietary and Nutritional Guidance
- Vitamin & Nutraceutical Supplements
- Pharmaceutical and Prescription Medication
- Botanical Medicine
- Homeopathic Remedies
- Spinal Adjustments
- Advanced Injections and Intravenous Therapy
We have a team of knowledgeable doctors to help with all of your Naturopathic needs.

Dr. Erin Crossman, ND
Hi, I am Dr. Erin. My goal in being your naturopathic doctor is to support you in becoming empowered within your health! It is important to me that people know they are not alone and there are always options for addressing health concerns, no matter how complex. I grew up with artistic parents that supported my creativity, which has assisted me in problem solving and thinking outside the box. Along with experience in scientific fields, I’ve worked in a wide array of trades. I really enjoy hands-on work and being active. In my personal time I have a regular yoga practice, trained for 2 marathons, and one summer bicycled to Portland. On the weekends, especially in the summer, you will most likely find me at Shawnigan Lake, which is my favourite mix of activity and slowing things down. As a clinician, I have strengths in physical medicine and acupuncture, as well as special interests in chronic injuries, allergies, digestive issues, and stress-related conditions. I look forward to sharing perspectives with you in wellbeing and balance that have brought joy and vitality to my life.
Dr. Adella Gerry, ND
Hello! My name is Dr. Adella Gerry, but please feel free to call me Dr. Della as this is what most people know me as! I am a passionate Naturopathic Physician who has been enthralled by natural healing from a very young age. I have enjoyed working on Salt Spring Island and Vancouver, but glad to be home in Victoria to help treat patients in my own community. As an ND I have many treatment modalities available to help you feel your best. My calming and grounding influence will help you ascertain what naturopathic medicine can best do for you, and create an individually tailored treatment plan. I have special interests in pain management, women’s health, and sports medicine. I also offer breast thermography, which is an assessment tool to find early pathological changes in breast tissue. Thermography utilizes a thermal imaging camera that can prevent excessive radiation exposure in a completely comfortable manner. Please see my website at http://DrDella.ca for more information.
Dr. Elli Reilander, ND
Let me introduce myself! I’m Dr. Elli and I’m a naturopathic doctor and IV wellness practitioner here at Hydrate IV Wellness Centre. I have a passion for integrative medicine and love being able to personalize my treatments to my patients’ individual needs. After graduating from Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine, I couldn’t wait to come back home. I was raised in Sidney and will always be an islander at heart. When I’m not in the clinic you’ll find me either exploring the Vancouver Island wilderness or in the dance studio. If you haven’t tried a Wellness IV or Mini Boost injections yet, give me a call – I’m here to give you the energy you need to tackle your day!
