Dr. Shawn Postma

Naturopathic Physician

“Stress is often at the heart of many health-related issues, whether mental, emotional, or physical. Not only is stress one of the primary contributors to disease, it worsens the disease process and impedes healing as well. I am passionate about helping my patients get a better handle on this missing piece to their health and to cultivate lasting wellness.”
