Back ground on Gudrun : Gudrun grew up in a small mountain town in Montana and was fascinated with plants and trees from the time she was born. As a teen she studied survival courses and sought out information on how the indigenous people in Montana and the world have lived closer to nature. As a young adult she moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico where she worked for several local herbalists growing herbs and food, making tinctures, natural cosmetics and therapeutic odds and ends. In 2001 She started her formal education in Santa Fe, where she received her Registered Polarity Practitioner designation from the New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts. While living in Santa Fe Gudrun traveled a lot and sought out people who were involved in traditional food practices and healing throughout the world. She soaked up all she could in Nepal, India, Japan, Mexico, Ireland and other countries. In her thirties Gudrun decided she would like a formal education that married both conventional and traditional healing. In 2010 she moved to Toronto to study Naturopathic Medicine at the Canadian College of Nauturopathic Medicine.
Today she takes a very practical approach when addressing her patient’s needs. Grounded in current diagnostics, blood work and physicians reports, she helps her patients to discover the cause of their heath conditions. Gudrun prides herself in helping patients to find compatible, safe, effective and natural ways towards recovery.
