Staying Healthy with Herbs

About Us

Cynthia Reed at The Herbal RouteCynthia Reed, ND, CNHP, DNM

I have a dream that natural health, with the help of naturopathic doctors, will someday become a part of mainstream health care in America.  I am very proud and happy to announce that we now have four wellness centers that have recently opened within a 50-mile radius of Baton Rouge.  The following bios describe the qualifications of the NDs that own or work at these wellness centers and the modalities they offer.  As these women started their journey into natural health they attended classes, mentored, and trained with me, and I have had the pleasure of learning from them as well.  They are all dedicated to helping you receive the best possible natural health care available and I am looking forward to working along side each of them.

My appointment schedule is very full and it can be difficult to get an appointment with me on short notice. Should you need to see someone before I am available, I highly recommend that you to seek out one of the NDs listed below.  I know you will be well cared for and you will not be disappointed.
