Dr. Timmermans is a licensed naturopathic doctor with a passion for connecting with his patients and helping them overcome their health concerns as well as optimizing their overall performance as a human.
His passion for health and wellness drives him to think outside the box, utilizing evidence informed medicine to help patients to resolve their chronic muscle and joint pain, improve their capacity for athletic performance, and reclaim their quality of life.
Dr. Timmermans received his naturopathic medical degree from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe Arizona. He completed his residency in integrative pain management and regenerative medicine at the Neil Riordan Center for Regenerative Medicine at SCNM in Tempe, Arizona. During his residency, he received advanced training in image-guided regenerative injections including prolotherapy, platelet-rich plasma, nerve hydrodissection, and autologous stem cell therapy. During this time, Dr. Timmermans also sought out additional training in peptide therapy, bioidentical hormone replacement, and IV micronutrient therapy. As a naturopathic doctor, Dr. Timmermans’ approach to resolving chronic pain and disease focuses on finding and treating the root cause, assessing and treating the whole person, and helping the body heal itself.
Dr. Timmermans grew up in a small town about 30 km west of London Ontario. He has always been intrigued with the inner workings of the human body, and ultimately received his Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from the University of Western Ontario. During that time, he competed as a long sprinter in the 300m, 4x200m and 4x400m relay, and 600m. During his last year, he anchored the 4x400m relay to a silver medal at the Canadian national championships, contributing to Western’s first ever Men’s National Championship Title.
After his undergraduate studies, Dr. Timmermans started working as a personal trainer for GoodLife Fitness, Canada’s largest health club company, with over 300 locations across the country. Within a short amount of time, Dr. Timmermans established himself as a leader not only at his gym, but across his entire division. After only 16 months, he was recognized as one of the Top 500 employees, and Top 10 Personal Trainers in the entire company.
During his time working as a personal trainer, Dr. Timmermans realized that he was passionate about helping people to improve their health through nutrition and exercise, and derived great joy when his clients would tell him that their doctors took them off blood pressure or lipid lowering medications. One of his clients suggested that he should look into naturopathic medicine because she could see his passion, and this was the turning point for him.
After learning about the philosophy and principles of naturopathic medicine, Dr. Timmermans immediately realized he had found his calling. Later that year he enrolled at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine.
