About Dr. Lauren Quinn, ND
Being raised in a health-conscious household, I have always had a natural interest in health, nutrition, and the maintenance of an active lifestyle. During my time at Mount Allison University, I knew I wanted to work in a health care field, but I was having a hard time finding something I felt truly passionate about. That is when I came across a Naturopathic Doctor working in Sackville. After some shadowing and research, I was inspired by the profession and fell in love. The idea of being able to really spend time with people, and focusing on the building blocks of health was exactly what I wanted to do. Without looking back, I moved to Toronto to achieve my dream and have never been happier!
Originally being from New Brunswick, I knew I wanted to eventually end up back on the East Coast, so I decided to make the big move and relocate my practice from the GTA to the HRM. I am excited to be able to build a practice closer to family (and the ocean), and eventually raise a family of my own in this beautiful part of Canada. In my spare time I enjoy doing yoga, spending a Saturday morning at the market, “attempting” DIY projects, running, going to concerts, and relaxing at the beach.
Do you want to get back to feeling like yourself? Do you want to have more energy and feel less stressed? Are you ready to make a change and start focusing on your health?
I want to work with you to get to the root of what is going on so that you can enjoy time with your family, feel more productive at work, and get back to doing the things you love. I am passionate about educating and empowering my patients to take charge of their well-being. I have an evidence based approach, and am a strong advocate for individualized and collaborative healthcare. I have a general family practice, and accept patients of all ages, with a special interest in women’s health, pediatrics, thyroid health, autoimmunity, and anxiety. I couldn’t be more excited to be joining Bedford Naturopathic in the amazing new Santé Centre and can’t wait to meet you!
