Laura Batson, Naturopathic Doctor, is dedicated to understanding the full complexity of what is ailing you.
She will spend time listening to your concerns, asking questions about your health and health history, performing physical assessments, and sometimes requesting blood work or other medical tests.
She combines modern medical science with traditional healing approaches, to create treatment plans that use natural therapies (nutrition, botanical medicine, acupuncture, and mind-body exercises) to help stimulate the mind, body, and soul to heal itself.
Laura is also a lecturer at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition. She teaches Nutrition Through the Lifespan.
In 2012, Laura completed a 4-year naturopathic medical degree from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto.
Her prior education includes a degree in Biology from the University of Western Ontario, and a Masters in Holistic Science from the UK.
She also completed a 12-month residency in the Adjunctive Cancer Care unit at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic in Toronto.
Laura, Naturopathic Doctor, has experience working as a naturopath in Canada and internationally, including 3 years in Egypt where she worked in a primary care role.
She has treated a wide range of complex health concerns such as anxiety, depression, digestive issues, skin concerns, autoimmune conditions, cancer, thyroid conditions and women's health issues including fertility support, menstrual irregularities, and symptoms of menopause.
Laura is a wife, mother, and daughter.
She loves art-making, poetry-writing, Spirit-talking, Indigenous science, and the sciences of chaos and complexity theories.
These interests culminated in a book she self-published, Curvature: The Science and Soul of Nonlinearity.
This is a book that weaves art, poetry, science, and Spirit, to tell a story about the loss of curvaceous knowledge in the world (eg: feminine wisdom, holistic science, the circular thinking of Indigenous peoples, nonlinear mathematics, and so forth), and it offers teachings from Spirit Grandmothers on how to replenish the world "curvaceously".
