Bill Ridley

Executive Director

I’ve always have been fascinated with technology, natural health, and spirituality. Today we are living in an age where all three play a vital role in achieving the optimum state of well being for ourselves and our families. My desire to introduce leading edge health methodologies to the people of Greater Vancouver was the motivation to create The Foundation of Integrated Health, May of 2005.

Mary’s heartfelt joy comes from making certain all patients are given the best care possible and ensuring our clinic and practitioners a well organized environment.
