Chris Lamont RH
Throughout his life Chris has had two distinct passions, music and nature. His first passion drew him to study jazz at Mohawk College and Concordia University. Twenty-two years later, he maintains his love of music as a professional drummer.
Following several years solely devoted to music, Chris expanded his way of life by pursuing his love of nature through the study of Herbal Medicine. He studied under renowned herbalist, Isla Burgess and now holds a diploma in Clinical Herbal Medicine from the International College of Herbal Medicine in New Zealand. He followed his studies with a 12-year herbal apprenticeship, where Chris trained extensively in the manufacturing of herbal medicines.
Chris became a registered herbalist and member of the Ontario Herbalists Association (OHA) in 2014. Determined to be actively involved in the profession, he became a member of the Board of Directors of the OHA in 2015. He has clinical practices in both Toronto and Dundas, Ontario.
Chris believes that we can restore health, prevent illness, and promote innate vitality through the use of medicinal herbs, nutrition, and lifestyle changes. He is enthusiastic about using his knowledge of natural medicine to assist others in reconnecting with nature; a pursuit that he feels is essential to health and happiness. Chris teaches Herbal Medicine at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition’s Mississauga Campus.
