About Life Blossom Wellness
Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I'm Dr. Candace Mathers. I received my bachelors of science degree in biomedical sciences from the University of South Florida in Tampa, FL and my doctorate in naturopathic medicine from the National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, IL, 1 of 7 accredited naturopathic medical schools in North America.
I founded Life Blossom Wellness with the goal of making naturopathic medicine accessible to families of children with special needs through tele-health consultations because I believe that naturopathic medicine is a profound life changer, which can give you the tools to not only get better yourself and your family but to become your absolute best!
Naturopathic medicine is active medicine. You will be challenged you to take control of your health and crush it! It's my goal to not only remove the obstacles that are keeping you unhealthy but to empower you, walk beside you, and guide you in this life-changing journey to liberating health and awesomeness.
My passion is to not only help you to look and feel your best, but to help you understand how to stay that way. Education is key with natural heath coaching and I can be as thorough or as general as you need. A naturopathic coaching session is not only about education but also empathy and compassion. I understand that you have probably gone through debilitating illness and scary life changes. Many families with children with Down syndrome do. It can make life that much worse when you aren't getting the help your child needs from more conventional approaches.
Having a sick child, or one who isn't reaching her milestones, can be scary but it's my passion to help guide you to a better path.
Although I work with clients of all backgrounds with various conditions, I do have a special interest in illness prevention, wellness, and health optimization for children with Down Syndrome because of my daughter, who has Down Syndrome. I also have an interest in mood disorders, autoimmune and inflammatory conditions, and cognition enhancement.
I hold my naturopathic physician license in the state of Vermont. I have been featured in Naturopathic Doctor News and Review on natural options for flu palliation in children and the Practically Healthy Life Show with Dr. Tursha Hamilton on holistic therapies for children with Down syndrome.
I hold a master's degree in acupuncture.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with Christ in prayer and worship and my family, taking my children from one adventure to the next, playing the guitar and keyboard, singing, writing music and Christian fiction.
