More about Lara 

Lara first worked as a researcher and evolutionary biologist at the University of Calgary. She then went on to graduate as a naturopathic doctor from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM).

Her love of science and the natural world has informed the way she works with patients. She views the body as a logical, regenerative system that knows what to do when it's given the right support. And in her twenty years of practice, she's seen that simple principle in action with thousands of patients.
