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, integrative medicine and alternative medicine. I don't believe in one size fits all medicine and practice an individualized approach for my clients. My focus is on chronic illness and preventative healthcare, with an emphasis in women and children’s health. I have consulted to USDA/FDA facilities and worked on children's nutritional plans and food labeling . I have also consulted to food and health organizations, laboratory scientists and have an extensive 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, which is why I rarely took medicine. I ate fresh farm raised meats 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.
Janou Natural Health and Wellness was created to share a piece of my culture, experiences and my love for wellness and self care with you. This lifestyle brand will revolutionize the way women of color and culture receive their wellness. I hope you enjoy the services and products and learn something about yourself along the way.
