Our History

With the 7 Stages to Health and Transformation™ model, Dr. Bruce Hoffman has created a new definition of Integrative Medicine. He believes it is a broadly defined system of medicine, which combines traditional medicine with proven and effective complementary/alternative therapies, at all levels of the person’s experience. This is concisely defined as Whole Person Healing.

This model of medicine has emerged as the model of choice as it has provided an established and respected framework of medicine that allowed him to practice a variety of healing systems he found to be safe and effective. It offers both structure and flexibility and most importantly, it opens the door for him to involve his patients in their own healing process.

It is one of the first working models in Integrative Medicine to masterfully incorporate the mind, body, energy, and spirit into one single system of healing, and to systematically organize many of the diagnostic and therapeutic options accordingly.

In this field of medicine, one must draw on various teachers and mentors. Dr. Hoffman has completed clinical training with some of the most renowned clinicians and doctors in Integrative Medicine and studied with many of the leading mind-body and spiritual healers of our times. New teachers and experts continue to inspire him. He frequently travels around the world to study different healing methods which if found to be valid, are included into his 7 Stages to Health and Transformation™ model.

In the recent past, Dr. Hoffman has founded two wellness centres located in Calgary. In 1993, he founded the Centre for Preventive Medicine in the Bow Valley Medical centre. Then in 2000, he founded and opened The Hoffman Centre for Integrative Medicine, where he is currently the Medical Director.

From its humble beginnings with one receptionist in a small room at the Eau Claire Market, his clinic is now based in 3,500 sq. feet and has 12 employees, offering a vast array of clinical services including IV Therapy, Functional Medicine, Anti-Aging Therapies, Biofeedback, Naturopathy, Neural and Prolotherapy and Nutrition.

Today, Dr. Hoffman continues to be inspired by emerging therapies, and strives to remain on the front line of Integrative Medicine by offering clients access to a wide range of Integrative wellness products and services at The Hoffman Centre for Integrative Medicine.

Success Stories

Recently my wife and I came to the Hoffman Clinic seeking help for our son who is an ASD affected 2.5 year old. Our son had begun regressing in his development and did not try to talk or communicate with us, which left us feeling helpless to determine what we could do for him. As we worked with the Hoffman Clinic to identify things that were best for him, it was recommended that we attend a seminar on electric and magnetic fields to gain an understanding how they can affect people, especially susceptible individuals such as our son. read more

In the winter of 2007 – 2008, Zendrek Eon Noakes was showing signs of a nervous disorder that progressively got worse to a point that it was starting to be socially disruptive, and was later diagnosed in the fall of that year as Tourette’s Syndrome by a Pediatric Tourette’s Syndrome Specialist at the Alberta Children’s Hospital.

Tourette’s Syndrome is multifaceted involving motor and vocal involuntary behavior that can be accompanied by hyperactivity, emotional sensitivities, and disturbances, and as such. It is a neurological disorder probably caused by dysfunctional relationships of neurochemicals in the brain.

Our question was why was this happening to Zen and how could it be treated. The Tourette’s Syndrome medical experts did not have an answer. We were told that there was no known cure for Tourette’s Syndrome and that how or why this syndrome was affecting our son was unknown and could not be determined. read more

In September, 1999 I decided it was time I had a physical examination. A friend’s husband had recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer and it had been several years since my last exam. I was 56 years old and I had retired 18 months earlier after teaching for 25 years.

I knew I was overweight, but I was not concerned about “a few extra pounds”. To my surprise, the results of the blood test carried out after my physical exam confirmed Dr. Hoffman’s opinion that I was diabetic.

I learned that I was a classic example of a Type II diabetic. Over 40, overweight, and under exercised. My blood glucose, cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure were all high.

After reading Perfect Health and talking with Dr. Hoffman, I decided to make some changes in my lifestyle. My main motivation at that point was fear. I had been looking forward to a long, healthy retirement and instead I was facing heart disease and a shortened life span. read more

I wanted to send you all a follow-up letter so that you would know that I am very healthy these days — having mostly overcome my severe gut health troubles and food intolerances — and let you know how exactly that happened.

In a nutshell, my food intolerances or sensitivities which were *so* incredibly bad before are under control again. Before, Dr. Hoffman, the slightest contact with onion made me sick for weeks (months?) because my guts were so fragile; now, I can be exposed to and even eat small amounts of onion without major issues (just some minor discomfort and lowered energy for a few hours). read more

I have nothing but the highest regard for the work of Dr. Hoffman and his staff. I found my way to the clinic in 2014 with a new diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. I traveled from Vancouver to Calgary to consult with Dr. Hoffman in hopes that I would get a greater understanding of the root cause of my symptoms. Little did I know how much I would actually discover. Dr. Hoffman is a medical detective, scientist, healer, teacher and highly evolved, lovely person. He travels all over the world attending conferences and training, hence he is incredibly current and knowledgeable about mysterious health conditions that present at his clinic. read more

Wendy Lecher, Calgary, AB (Mother of Josiah) When I was a little girl my hopes and dreams were to have two healthy and happy children. Unfortunately, we couldn’t have our own biological children so we proceeded with adoption where we were blessed with a beautiful baby boy.

My husband and I were both very happy until at the age of 19 months, after his last set of vaccines when we started to notice that our son started having a very odd behavior.

At this time we noticed that he stopped saying any words, he started flapping his hands, walking on his toes, very sensitive to loud noises and crowds of people. He became fixated on power lines, spinning wheels on his trains and obsessed with Baby Einstein movies. He also stopped eating all the foods he used to enjoy. read more
