Elisabeth Bastos’ Life Path to becoming a Doctor determined to make a difference:

Since high school the seed of interest was planted for natural methods of health such as nutrition and intolerance free eating with books that her Canadian new comer parents left out for her on these topics to keep her busy as they worked over time to get established in Canada.

A seemingly negative event of being hit by a car turned positive in early high school.  Elisabeth was hit by a car while riding her bike and was in severe pain until her parents took her to holistic practitioners that had her well and comfortable in an impressive amount of time.  Through various practitioners she learned to exercise and learned about pain and body healing.  This impressed on her and gave her the passion of taking individuals from dis-ease and stress to true healing with no chemicals just as she had experienced.

More life learning drives Elisabeth’s passion for natural healthcare support….in 2018, just before Christmas her cardiologist reported good news that the worrisome issue of poor heart wall movement, possibly linked to ischemia or ebstein barr virus was reversed after her 3 months of self natural medication.  Her 2 prolapses are also healing and reversing which is not the text book expectation.

Dr Bastos has first hand experience with supporting and providing treatment for small children including those with neurological concerns. Her own child at 18 months old had natural support for seizures and instead of 2 years of medication had only a few weeks with natural alternatives.  Her 8 year old also experienced severe confusional migraines and using nutritional therapy is in remission with no episodes for over 1.5 years.

Her family continues to be her spring board for inspiration as she supported and resolved a severe infectious episode of assumed Lyme and viral co infection symptoms in her young child and her oldest is also in process of confirmed Lyme treatment of 3 months.
