Simona Ciobanu, ND became a believer in naturopathic medicine more than 10 years ago, when a young family member became severely ill with a life-threatening illness for which conventional medicine offered harsh treatment but little help, and natural medicine restored health gently and effectively. Over the years she noticed similar scenarios in other family and friends being treated with conventional medicine alone for various afflictions - they were getting sicker and sicker, requiring more and more medications. Desperate for better health, she was again lead to naturopathic medicine and fell in love with its philosophy and treatment modalities. With a life-long dream of becoming a doctor, she decided to pursue the best-suited medical field for her - the field of naturopathic medicine!
