Dr. Evan van Driel, BSc, ND
Dr. Evan van Driel, BSc, ND is a Naturopathic Physician specializing in the treatment of trauma, mood disorders, and chronic pain.
He graduated from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2014 with a doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine and has since pursued post-graduate studies in neuro-emotional technique, muscle physiology, psychoneuroimmunology, and regenerative medicine, including certification from the International College of Applied Kinesiology and multiple certifications in injection techniques and the application of ozone.
When he was a child, Dr. Evan had severe asthma. He couldn’t get through a full gym class without having to use his inhaler. Not being able to breathe and having to rely on medications made Dr. Evan feel as though he had no say as to what his body would do. This was extremely scary and left him feeling hopeless. Luckily, about halfway through middle school that he grew out of it. After that, he had allergies and chronic upper respiratory tract infections. This experience made him very curious about how the body worked, why people got sick, and what to do about it.
During middle school, Dr. Evan spent a lot of time around a close family who battled chronic infections, extended hospitalizations, and years of pain and self-destructive behaviour. Though it seemed to have been a car accident that caused the initial broken bones, the 10 year of suffering that eventually ended in that family member’s passing was in no way a due to the trauma alone.
In high school, he started to have hip pain that prevented him from doing activities that he loved like skating, rugby, and badminton. After finishing high school, Dr. Evan was accepted into a university level engineering program, which he soon found wasn't for him. Though it offered the opportunity to learn and understand how the physical world worked, it wasn't quite inspiring and engaging enough. Part of the way through this first year, naturopathic medicine was brought up in the form of a career aptitude test. Though he had been exposed to the idea of supporting people with health problems in the past, his experience with doctors turned him away from the pursuit of a career in medicine. After 20 minutes of research, he decided to change course and embark on the journey towards learning and understanding about the human body, mind, and spirit.
Putting into practice the things that he learned in school, Dr. Evan became stronger and more fit than he had ever been. He also found answers in abundance for his friends and family’s chronic health concerns. He continues to learn more about the human body every day, and he feels blessed to have found a profession that he enjoys and have a passion for. Now he shares what he has learned with others to build them up so that they can live without symptoms and enjoy the activities that they love.
Dr. Evan’s mission is to help people to be stronger so that they can handle more. By helping people to reduce pain, improve their mood, and re-wire their brains after trauma, Dr. Evan has noticed that people can be more themselves and show up differently in life. He sees the nervous system as innately intelligent, adaptable, and having a high degree of plasticity. Being able to leverage his knowledge of this fact structurally, biochemically, and mentally/emotionally means that what people experience doesn't have to be what they experience.
Dr. Evan loves to be out in nature and frequently embarks on multi-day backpacking trips with his friends. On the other extreme, he also loves reading any book about psychology and/or neurology that he can get his hands on.

Dr Evan is super friendly and kind! He is a great doctor because he makes you feel comfortable, listens to all your concerns and takes the time to give an amazing treatment. He worked on my cranial nerves related to my salivary glands and eye movement. Before seeing him I never had any idea these systems were messed up. But I began to notice that my vitamins would dissolve faster in my mouth and my reading became more fluid! I will continue to go see him as he is really accommodating for students.

I had a great experience with Dr. Evan. His perspective and treatments were refreshing, particularly in contrast to a more allopathic approach. He was able to tap into (and clear) some underlying issues of mine on a physical, mental AND emotional level, which was really powerful for me. He has an easy and gentle way of connecting with you as a patient, which I really appreciate in a provider. I also work in the medical field and have been referring patients and friends to him. If you're looking for a holistic approach to working with your physical and emotional health, go see him!

Dr. Evan is one of the best naturopaths in the entire state! I am a local chiropractor and I have been treated by him many times. I also have referred many of my patients to him with great results! His extensive knowledge of natural treatments and calm caring demeanor are a powerful combination for healing. He practices Applied Kinesiology which can be used to tailor each and every treatment to the patients needs. Through this method of "muscle testing," he can figure out exactly which nutrients are needed. He knows a ton of different ways to treat patients and then he uses the muscle testing to be sure he chooses the most effective method every time! He also does Neuro Emotional Technique, which is an amazing way to quickly and effectively lower your stress levels. Stress is very detrimental to your health and the NET technique is a scientifically validated technique that can help you feel much better in just a few minutes! If you are looking for the best naturopathic care available at reasonable rates, go to Dr. Evan!!!

In my search for a new naturopath, I was referred to True Resilience because I have multiple ailments, diseases and concerns which had been addressed by common treatments such as chiropractic, supplements, acupuncture, and many laboratory tests. Dr Evan uses on-site autonomic response testing via applied kinesiology for an immediate evaluation of what procedure will work best for you. The Neural Therapy was instrumental in restoring more feeling to one side of my body. His homeopathic recommendation is assisting in ridding my body of a long-held poison. I highly recommend Dr Evan and True Resilience. The rates are reasonable and he is a physician who listens to the patient !

I stumbled upon Dr. Evan through the web looking for an alternative approach to my previous years and bout with horrible allergies and Asthma. Throughout the 3 years of treating my symptoms with western Medecine and steroidal prescriptions i found myself on a vicious treadmill and getting no relief. I made my “free” consultation that very day and thought...” what do I have to loose”! By the end of my consultation I felt I had hope that Dr. Evan could truly help me not just mask my physical problems but rid my body of them. Amazingly enough after A few treatments and supplements I already saw great improvement. I truly feel better than I have in 3 years. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is seeking treatment relief for any and all ailments physically and or structurally. Dr. Evan is a very kind ,gentle and extremely knowledgeable Holistic Physician I am so thankful that I found him. Thank you Dr. Evan for all your expertise and for helping me to get my healthy life back on track.

I had the honor of working with Dr. Evan for just a few minutes as an introduction to his work. He's so trustworthy! In just a few minutes, he helped me more than most practitioners have in tenfold the session time. I highly recommended him!

Dr. Evan van Driel has greatly improved the quality of my life in a number of ways. My initial focus was to see if he could improve my severe Bipolar Type II depressions, which were crippling my life. He helped me reset my Circadian Rhythm, which was definitely a factor in the depressions, and started me on several supplements, which were helpful. He has frequently and successfully used Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) to clear physical and emotional issues, a number of which I believe were related to the overall depression cycle. I have not had a depression since I began working with him. I highly and unconditionally recommend him. He is a gentle, kind, thoughtful, and very professional practitioner who is exceptional in his sensitivity to the patient and in his ability to zero in on and clear significant issues.

After multiple doctor visits, blood work and a CAT scan, my normal doctor was unable to help. With just talking to Dr Evan, he was able to identify my issue and suggest actions to correct it. Within days I was feeling better.

Dr. Evan has been great with my 10 yr old son. I love that he includes nutrition, physical systems, and also emotional well-being when he looks at overall health. He has been incredibly thorough and cares about getting to the root of any problems that present. I highly recommend him!
