Dr. Lyndsey Zigar ND, BScN
Naturopathic Doctor & Doula
A career in Naturopathic Medicine seems like it was destined for me. From a very early age, I have been fascinated with the human body and medicine, captivated by Nature’s beauty and innate wisdom, and aware of the delicate interconnectedness of life. I was a sponge soaking up naturopathic principals throughout my childhood from my very nutritionally conscious mom, herbal medicine advocating dad, vegetable garden growing family, and local chiropractor. In high school, I became very sick with mononucleosis and my doctor told me that there was nothing I could do about it, I just had to rest and wait it out. My wise teen self couldn't accept this answer so I began reading about the immune system and natural healing - and it was then that I realized I would become a Naturopathic Doctor. I pursued an undergraduate degree in Nursing so I could dive straight into studying medicine and providing compassionate care. During my training in the CCU and seeing countless open heart surgeries, I knew I needed to focus more on helping others optimize their health and experience deep healing. After graduating, I worked as a Public Health Nurse helping new mothers with breastfeeding, postpartum adjustment and newborn care. I loved this work but still felt that something was missing as I wasn’t fully able to bring my nutrition and herbal medicine knowledge to my patients. It wasn’t until I was in Naturopathic school that everything fell into place. At last, I was living the life I was meant to live.
