Vincent Lun

Vincent was raised in Ottawa, Ontario and graduated from Carleton University in 2008 with a B.Sc in Integrated Science. During this time, he spent several years investigating non-invasive imaging techniques for assessing traumatic brain injuries at the Lawson Health Research Institute in London, Ontario. Here he was exposed to the extensive research in the applications of functional neurology that were being implemented within the U.S. military to treat concussions and post-traumatic stress. The published research led him to study at Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, Ontario. Vincent has a private practice in Ottawa and is completing additional studies in functional neurology. It has been a distinct honor and privilege to train and mentor the future generations of naturopathic doctors.
