About My Guest:

My guest for this episode is Dr. Marie Matheson.  Marie Matheson, ND is the Co-Founder of BioHeal Ottawa, community builder, creator, and facilitator of LymeBright Collective, and maintains a busy private practice as a Naturopathic Doctor.  Dr. Marie’s ultimate goal is to unlock patients who are trapped in their medical condition.  Grounded in general practice skills, Dr. Marie is somewhat of a health detective, specifically when it comes to figuring out the causal chain of illness including that of underlying infections and toxins.  She is immensely passionate about working with patients to help them better understand their health journey, the misleading nature of most medical labels they’re handed, and how to live an empowered and superior quality of life.  Using her assessment tool of Auricular Medicine, Dr. Marie uncovers blockages and underlying imbalances that have created symptoms, to allow the body to self-heal and auto-regulate.  Her willingness to freely share clinical pearls of wisdom among colleagues has led to her being a sought-after speaker at medical conferences.  Dr. Marie is a featured author of a chapter within Connie Strasheim’s groundbreaking book New Paradigms in Lyme Disease Treatment. She is a Member of the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) and completed their Physicians Training Program with the late Dr. Charles Ray Jones, MD.
