Maya Shetreat, MD, took her conventional medical background into natural medicine about the time her son’s chronic illness created the open door for research in the space. Her experience pushed her further into exploring the healing properties of plants, herbs, and even crystals. Now considered an expert by many in the space, she shares with Frontrunners Innovate Producer and Host, Mary Kurek, her own story and what she knows about the benefits of a more nature-based approach to healthcare.
