Health Advocacy, Naturopathic healthcare and nutritional / “living food intolerance free” coaching is Dr. Bastos’ full time passion since she was in high school.  She was hit by a car while riding her bike and was in severe pain until her parents took her to holistic doctors that had her well and comfortable in a short time.  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.  She is full time in practice and enjoys volunteering her time at the local food bank, and in the healthy snack school program.

Since 2008 Dr. Bastos ND has been awarded yearly including Best Naturopathic Clinic, Best Naturopathic Doctor, Best Acupuncturist and Best Online Shopping Category in the Cambridge Times Reader’s choice awards.
