#120:  Health & Wellness Under Any Circumstances w/ Dr. Du La, ND

On this week’s show Gary chats with Dr. Du La, a Toronto-based Naturopathic Doctor registered in Traditional Chinese medicine, where naturopathic care treats the entire person, not just the symptom they are complaining about. Dr. La’s parents instilled in her a hard work ethic, and since she grew up in a family with not much money, her parents got creative in putting healthy food on their table.


  • Why it doesn’t take a lot of money to eat well
  • Why Naturopathic doctors believe the body has an innate ability to heal itself
  • When it can’t, they use natural therapies to supplement the immune system
  • Why NDs don’t apply ‘band aid’ solutions, but targeted therapies to get to the root cause
  • Then root cause of many health issues today
  • How meditation can help get rid of ‘monkey brain’
  • How mindfulness can help keep distracting thoughts away
  • The role of mindset and why it’s 90% important
  • What are Dr. La’s ‘non-negotiables’
  • How self talk should be conscientious, not perfect
  • How her practice changed during the pandemic, including acupuncture
  • What are the 5 pillars - sleep, movement, nutrition, mindset, community and how they work
  • Traditional Chinese energy meridians
  • What is the ‘blue zone’ and why some people live longer than others
  • And MORE!
  • Dr. La’s Bio
