About Ryan Barby

meet ryan barby, certified integrated health practitioner


My passion for health and nutrition developed when I was 22 years old and diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. I refused to believe that I could not live a normal lifestyle, that this dis-ease would control every waking hour of life, that I could not lead a normal, long and healthy life.

Years of bouncing around to different doctors and feeling dissatisfied with the advice I was receiving… years of frustration and confusion… years of self learning and experimentation with different diet, exercise and supplement protocols… I knew there was something out there that made sense and could tie it together. It wasn’t until I discovered Integrated Health that everything finally clicked and I could see how the pieces fit together…

During this time I had been teaching kids as a substitute school teacher for a few years, seeing kids in class after class struggling to focus, acting out beyond the norm, and just not having full access to their learning potential… and these were good kids!

It struck me; I knew that with a deep knowledge of Integrated Health, my experience with kids’ behaviour and learning in schools, and my own personal experience as a diabetic… I knew I would be uniquely poised to be able share an important message with these 2 groups of people, and the community at large. I would be able to help them with their frustrations, help them avoid the confusion that I experienced, and finally re-balance their body, and renew their health.

I was lucky enough to stumble across one of the world’s leading experts in Integrated Health and Functional Medicine, Dr. Stephen Cabral. I was even luckier that he had just opened up a certification program - what I now consider to be the gold standard in training integrated health practitioners - so that he could pass on his experience and expertise from 20 years of practise and 150,000 + client appointments. As a certified Integrated Health Practitioner under his program, I feel more confident than ever that I can help those in need find the health they seek. It’s 4 Your Health.
