This week, across Canada, it is Naturopathic Medicine Week! We are lucky to have amazing naturopathic doctors as part of our Natural Factors team. You may have read their blogs, seen them on social media, or even met them at one of the many community events they participate in.
We asked each of our NDs three questions we thought would allow you to get to know them a little better, and we’ll be sharing their answers here all week! So without further ado, it’s time to meet…
Kate Rhéaume, ND
1. Why I Love What I Do
I love seeing people taking charge of their own health and feeling better for it.
2. What Healthy Living Means to Me
Healthy living means striving for a balanced body, mind, and spirit. It also means abiding by the 80/20 rule: do your best to live a healthy lifestyle 80% of the time, and the rest of the time forget about it.
3. How I Fill My Spare Time
Spare time? It’s scarce these days, but I do remember reading and cooking for pleasure.
