Lisa Samet graduated from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in 1998 and has been practicing in Montreal since then. She was born and raised in New York and for the first half of her professional life worked in marketing for Procter and Gamble. After ten years with them, in Cincinnati and then Japan, she had to face the fact that her side hobby of homeopathy and natural medicine had become far more interesting and satisfying to her than the work she was doing fifty or more hours per week. So, it was in her mid-thirties that she went back to school full time to become a naturopathic doctor. She’s never looked back as the work she imagined doing is as wonderful and gratifying as she had hoped and she was able to find what she felt was missing in her previous career – accomplishing something of value. And what that is for her is to help people achieve a greater level of health and an undestanding of how to better manage their health. This represents truly meaningful work and a real source of passion and enthusiasm for her.
Naturopathic doctors typically don’t specialize in body systems or parts as conventional doctors do, but instead in treatment modalities, such as herbal medicine or homeopathy, and develop their expertise there. In her practice, Lisa Samet uses primarily homeopathy (see linked article ‘What is Homeopathy?’), supported by nutritional and diet optimization, as well as emotional repatterning techniques to help people overcome chronic and acute disease.
Lisa Samet’s practice attracts patients who have not been satisfied with their results using the conventional medical system. She sees patients with all type of chronic and acute diseases.
"Our son has been under Dr. Samet's care for the last two years. We met her when my then two year old was suffering from recurrent ear infections and delay in speech development. From the very beginning we were very reassured by her calmness, her ability to listen and her insightful questions about our child's development and behavior. Along with the remedies, she provided very clear guidelines of what to watch for and how to expect progress to happen. Our son has been thriving under her care. He is now a gregarious four year old who is never lost for words! One of the most impressive aspects of interacting with Dr. Samet, has been her openness and willingness to demystify the process of homeopathy. Her workshops are very helpful in enabling a better understanding of remedies and the field in general - for us, she stands way out from the rest of the crowd!"
