Determine root cause and prevent disease, that is my goal. My family values and beliefs have always aligned with the principles of Naturopathic Medicine: treat the root cause using the best defense system – our own body. If we can support our body and work from the inside-out, we are setting ourselves up for optimal and long-term health.
As a Naturopathic Doctor, I look to optimize your health the following ways:
Being an advocator for your health and wellbeing
Ensuring that you feel empowered to make changes and understand your body
Guide you through the best possible nutrition and lifestyle changes that are best for you without you feeling overly restricted (because that is certainly not sustainable)
Staying on top of new research that may benefit you and your body
Determining the root cause of your symptoms using appropriate testing, bloodwork, and a very detailed intake
Making sure the changes we make are sustainable, long-lasting, and balanced.
Although I have experience in a wide variety of different conditions, my practice is primarily focused on women’s health, fertility, PCOS. I also work extensively with insulin resistance, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
Other areas I have experience working with include:
(Peri and post) Menopause
Hormone imbalance (PMS, endometriosis, hormonal acne…etc.)
Pre-conception and post-natal care
Mental health concerns such as anxiety and depression
Stress and burnout
Dr. Shreya Batra first became interested in the field of Naturopathic Medicine because she wanted to provide patients with long-lasting change by determining the root cause and preventing the progression of disease. She strives to use the body’s own defense systems to improve quality of life and prevent future illnesses through diet, nutrition, lifestyle, and supplementation (when necessary). She is passionate about evidence-informed integrative health to provide you with the best treatment possible.
Dr. Batra is the co-owner of Darou Wellness and works alongside a talented group of health care practitioners to provide the best service to the greater Toronto community. During her clinical internship, she was selected and given the opportunity to work in the highly competitive fertility shift where she received in-depth training in women’s health from experts in the field. Her other personal and clinical interests are in cardiovascular disease, diabetes and insulin resistance. During her training she has offered Naturopathic care at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic and the Brampton Civic Hospital, as well as at Darou Wellness.
She is an honours degree graduate of the University of Toronto (UofT) with a specialist in Health and Disease and a Naturopathic Medical graduate from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM). She has also spent years during her degrees working at Sick Kids Hospital, Toronto, in pediatric research. She is also a proud recipient of the Gordon Cressy Leadership award at UofT and has also received awards for outstanding research at UofT and CCNM.
