Lisa Drost, N.D.

Lisa Drost, ND is a 1990 graduate of University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. After completing her studies in finance, she spent ten years in sales, selling commercial alarms, surgical instrumentation and retail vitamin supplements. Working side by side with surgeons in the OR stimulated her interest in traditional medicine and the wonders of the human body. Combining that knowledge with her experience selling botanical and vitamin supplements encouraged her to find a way to put the two medicines together. After an additional year of science courses, she began her four years of post-graduate medical training. She is a graduate of Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington, one of five accredited Naturopathic Medical Schools in North America and is currently licensed as a Naturopathic Physician in the state of Vermont.

She also has a special interest in environmental medicine and detoxification. She is uniquely qualified as a Naturopathic Physician in the field of environmental medicine, having also completed additional training with Dr. Walter Crinnion, one the nation's leading experts in this field.  Through the use of nutrition and diet, Lisa helps guide patients on their individual journey back to health.
