Self-Soothing Tips with Dr. Laura Smith
You're exhausted. You've been trying to survive this last year and you need extra love to get you through. You need some hugs from the inside out. Here are three easy and nourishing things to try to help comfort your mind and soul.
Dr. Laura believes the path to healing is through empowerment. She encourages her patients to play an active role in their healing journey by teaching, rather than “telling,” treatment plans. She wants to ensure that all those who step into her office feel heard, understood, and safe. Seeing a large gap in education about women’s own bodies, Dr. Laura has taken a special interest in further learning about women’s reproductive health. During her internship, she was selected to be part of the first Reproductive Health Focus Shift at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic (Toronto), where her passion for fertility and pre/postnatal health grew. Dr. Laura takes an evidence-based approach in diagnosing and formulating treatment plans with patient and inter-disciplinary collaboration. She approaches each case on an integrative and individual basis, and uses a range of modalities including botanical medicine, nutraceuticals, acupuncture, nutrition, and lifestyle counseling. Dr. Laura is a board-certified and licensed Naturopathic Doctor in good standing with the College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO), as well as a member of the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors and the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors.
