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 yoga, 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.
Dr Bastos has first hand experience with healing her own child from needing seizure medications when she was diagnosed with unexplained re occurant seizures at 18 months old. The natural systematic approach proved to be successful as her 1 year old to this day never had seizures past those few weeks despite conventional stats dictating that more episodes would occur and that meds would be needed for 2 years.
Elisabeth is open to helping various concerns and working on prevention also. She does however have a passion and extra training in chronic infection including EBV, chronic bacterial and yeast infections, mold related illness/CIRS, Lyme and co infections, and neurological concerns such as PANS and PANDAs and has access to products proven in research from US doctors.
Her family continues to be her spring board for inspiration as she supports a little one with chronic Lyme and had herself suffered with EBV infection and acute Lyme symptoms. The clinic is a Canadian resource for proven herbs, homeopathics, acupuncture and other supportive therapies to support chronic infection and autoimmune illness.
She is full time in practice and enjoys volunteering her time at the local food bank, church 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 in the Cambridge Times Reader’s choice awards (the neighbor city she established in).
