Bio

I became a Naturopathic Doctor and Acupuncturist in order to help others achieve and maintain optimal health in a sustainable way. I learned about natural medicine in high school while going through my own health issues, which were not responding to conventional treatment. After trying some “alternative” therapies, including changes to my diet, herbal medicines and nutritional supplementation, I was amazed at how quickly and easily my body regained its health without any side effects from medication. This personal experience ultimately lead me into the field of Naturopathic Medicine and Chinese Medicine, as I knew I wanted to be able to offer my patients the same type of care that played such a valuable role in my life.

I completed my medical studies at the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM), where I obtained my doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine and master’s in Acupuncture. During the last 2 years of my training, I had the privilege of working along side Dr. Paul Kalnins ND, LAc and Bob Quinn PhD, who taught me how to effectively integrate Naturopathic and Chinese medicine into a modern, healing art that can act as alternative care or complementary to conventional treatments. I also had the opportunity to travel to Haiti on a medical volunteer trip during my 3rd year of medical school with Naturopaths Without Borders. This experience fueled my interest in global health and my passion for the importance of sustainable holistic medicine approaches to address the many health issues that are facing communities around the world.

My approach to healthcare begins, first and foremost, with getting to know you and your story. It is my goal to discover the root cause of your health concerns and to provide innovative tools and strategies to help you live a more balanced and vital life. In addition to modern conventional treatments, I utilize botanical medicine, classical Chinese and Japanese acupuncture, homeopathy, clinical nutrition, and lifestyle modification to help support optimal health. Although trained as a primary care physician, I have a particular interest in treating fertility and preconception for men and women, endocrine imbalances, gastrointestinal complaints, mental/emotional disorders, women’s health and pediatrics/adolescent health. I am also trained in Japanese Pediatric Meridian Therapy and enjoy working with children to help support healthy physical, mental and emotional growth and development.

When I’m not at the clinic working with patients, I enjoy cooking (especially traditional Haitian recipes), traveling, practicing yoga and spending quality time with my husband. I am also an avid blogger and love sharing recipes and health related news with my patients and the community.

I look forward to hearing your story and working with you on your journey towards optimal health and wellness! As a bilingual practitioner, I am also happy to offer medical visits in French if needed. To learn more about my background, training and approach, please visit www.drmollyndlac.com.
