Dr. Shreya Batra, ND - Darou Wellness - Our Team

Dr. Shreya Batra, ND – Naturopathic Doctor

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.[ Read more here ]

Dr. Marika Berni ND - Darou Wellness - Our Team

Dr. Marika Berni, ND – Naturopathic Doctor

Being a naturopathic doctor is one of the most rewarding aspects on my life. There is no better feeling then when I help my patients get their health back on track. My 20 years of experience as a naturopath have been centered on general family healthcare with a clinical focus in women’s health, children’s health, weight loss and mental health. Naturopathic medicine has given me the tools to both inspire and empower my adult and paediatric patients to make healthy lifestyle choices that will benefit them for the rest of their lives. I am very excited to be able to work with such a professional team of practitioners while focusing on what I am passionate about. [ Read more here ]

Dr. Kimberley Ramberan ND - Darou Wellness - Our Team

Dr. Kimberley Ramberan, ND – Naturopathic Doctor

I will always remember the reason I decided to become a Naturopathic Doctor. That reason is a single word, a feeling, a state of being – HOPE. If I can help people feel hope, if I can give people hope of getting their life back, feeling like themselves again, hope of not having to suffer, hope that a diagnosis does not have to be a “life-sentence”, then the healing process may begin. In addition, once we address the root cause on a physical, emotional and spiritual level, quality of life is improved, and hope is restored, then I will have fulfilled my true calling as a Naturopathic Doctor.

Christina Lamont - Darou Wellness - Our Team

Christina Lamont, LBA – Live Blood Cell Analyst

I love helping people make the connection between what they do every day and how it’s affecting their daily life experience so they can make empowered decisions to support their goals with health and well-being to change that experience. The unique approach that I learned from Microcell Sciences of incorporating microbiology into the LBA provides another layer of detail than conventional blood tests and can help point to indications of other signs and symptoms like hormonal imbalance or chronic infections.
