Dr. Lindsay Chimileski is a licensed naturopathic physician and acupuncturist. Her whole life she has had an enthralled devotion to exploring the natural world. Naturally, this evolved into interests in herbal medicine, mushrooms, real food nutrition and living a more natural lifestyle.

Prior to her start in medicine, she focused on counseling and psychology while studying Human Development and Family Studies at the University of Connecticut. After falling in love with Traditional Chinese Medicine, she completed a Masters of Acupuncture as well. Dr. Chimileski co-leads ecotours through the Jamaican rainforests, celebrating the traditional ethnobotanical uses of local plant medicines.
