My name is Dr. Challotine Cius-Bonds and I am a board certified Naturopathic Doctor and Natural Health Practitioner. I have also studied herbology, nutritional consulting, holistic health, acupuncture and alternative medicine. My focus is in chronic illness and preventative healthcare, with an emphasis in women and children’s health. I have consulted to USDA/FDA facilities, worked on children's nutritional plans and food labeling, consulted to food and health organizations and laboratory scientists. I also have a very strong background in marketing and design.
Outside of being a doctor, I am a wife, mom, artist and designer. My passion in life is helping and feeding others. When I say feeding, I don’t just mean literally. I feed people knowledge, feed their hearts, feed their spirits and their minds. I enjoy seeing people look at life with meaning and purpose. I am a little bit of an old soul and have been told that for as long as I can remember. I was born to Haitian parents in Virginia and grew up in a small beach town off the Gulf coast of Florida.
It was also my Haitian roots that lead me into natural medicine. It was a part of my life since I was a child. All kinds of vines, plants and herbs in my mother’s yard and garden were brewed for every aliment I ever had. I rarely took medicine. I ate fresh meat and vegetables from my Grandmother’s garden when I’d visited Haiti. There was nothing in the world like it. I realized at a young age that something was special about the simplicity, eating natural fresh foods and drinking tea. Now, I am on a journey to share my knowledge and experience with others. I hope to help you find answers, share wisdom, give some advice and share ideas that will help you along your road to a better and healthier you.
