Naturopaths without Borders with Dr Sean Helser

Naturopaths without Borders (NWB) is an organisation dedicated to empowering low-resource communities through education, sustainable resources and Naturopathic healthcare.

Today we are joined by Dr Sean Hesler, who has dedicated much of his career to initiatives of global and community health care, having founded the MamaBaby Birth Centre in Haiti and in his roles as executive director of NWB and the director of community health at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine (SCNM). His insights into working with underserved communities to establish better nutrition through local, cultural-centric dietary and lifestyle modifications illustrate how food truly is, medicine.
