Lynn Lafferty, Pharm.D., N.D.,CNC, CNHP is a doctor of Pharmacy and licensed pharmacist, naturopath, herbalist, nutritionist and chef who is committed to finding the safest and most effective means to promote health and wellness over disease and illness.
She works with medical doctors and other health practitioners to integrate traditional and non-traditional medical modalities patients may seek for their medical care. She witnessed firsthand what natural health looks like from her grandmother, who had an organic farm, ate natural foods, exercised and used plants to treat her aliments her entire life. Her grandmother was climbing fruit trees and working in her garden well into her 80’s and had more energy than many young people today.
When Dr. Lafferty was in her 30’s she became ill from the modern treatment she received for fibroids and endometriosis. She became depressed and gained weight from the prescription drugs she was given and her doctor told her, “Nothing is wrong with you; just watch what you eat. There is nothing more I can do for you”.
Knowing there had to be a better way, she went to a naturopathic doctor and was placed on a natural foods eating plan and herbal supplements. Within 3 months she had lost weight and felt great. Dr. Lafferty started researching the physiological effects of the herbs and foods we eat, and went on to study naturopathy and nutrition. Her goal is to educate and help as many people as possible to the amazing possibilities of combining the best of both worlds from modern medicine and age old traditional therapies. Today, many of her clients include medical doctors who seek her out for her knowledge on alternative therapies for their patients and themselves.
She started Integrative Health and Wellness to put together customized programs for each individual client that incorporate her pharmacy and naturopathic backgrounds.
