Why NatureCure?

The term Nature Cure has been used to describe the use of lifestyle to return to health.  It is primarily based in using nature based treatments such as herbs, foods, fasting, water, movement and natural methods to build and support a lifestyle that encourages the return of physical and mental well being.

Working with Dr. Lara you’ll feel motivated and empowered to stay aware of how you can influence your state of health.

Achieve your health goals understanding how and why.  Change is usually possible when we understand the process.  Working with Dr. Lara will help you get a clear understanding and provide you with an assessment that is personalized  and specific to your needs.

The Clinic

Established in 2005, the Naturopathic Clinic began in downtown St. Catharines close to Montebello Park and was there until 2014.  Since then it has been relocated  off Glenridge Ave. The clinic has a welcoming space and from the moment you step in we hope you feel cared for.  Our patients often comment how relaxed they feel once they enter and especially after the time they’ve spent here.


The clinic has a very complete dispensary with a full range of health products.  Every single product has been curated over the years to obtain the optimal results that patients come to expect.  Treatment plans are made with individuality and personalized to help patients restore and achieve their health goals as quickly as possible.

Skin Care

Most of us with a skin condition comes to have a bathroom full of products that promise much but don’t often deliver.  Tried and tested products by our many patients have helped Dr. Lara curate her favourite recommendations from eczema ointments to facial masks and even deodorants.

Get ready for change, feel empowered and own your health!

We are a collection of our habits.

What we choose day in and day out determines how we feel.  We ask ourselves, “how did I get here?”  If we expect to see changes or results from how we’ve been we have to be willing to choose differently.

I find my most successful patients are the ones that are fed up or even scared with how their health is.  They use that motivation to choose differently; to create new habits.  Like exercise or mediation, it may not be easy at first but little by little our bodies and minds adjust. And before we can even notice, changes are taking place.  This is when it becomes easier and so worth it!
