As a member of the Canadian Alpine Ski Team from 1995-2002, Ryan competed on the World Cup Circuit and won several international competitions in Europe, Asia, and North America. After becoming both Canadian champion and North American champion in 1997, Ryan experienced a series of injuries, which inspired him to become a pro-active naturopathic doctor that understood health and performance as well as disease.
Dr. Oughtred has been a licensed Naturopathic Doctor in British Columbia since 2008, with practices currently in both Vancouver and Whistler. He practices a full scope practice in BC, and was one of the initial 200 ND's in Canada to be granted prescribing authority. He has a special interest in sports performance, spine related disorders, nutritional counselling, and obesity management.
Ryan lives in Whistler, BC, and enjoys several sports including skiing, golf, kite-surfing, and running. He also enjoys reading and spending time with his friends and family, including his two children.
