Natasha strives to get to the root of the problem, rather than suppressing the symptom. “If your child has a skin rash, we need to determine the underlying cause. When the cause is gone, the rash will be gone too. ” To aid in diagnosis, Dr. Wrenshall’s services also provide laboratory testing and include: food allergy tests, hormone panels, urinalysis and heavy metal assessment, and digestive and endocrine profiles. A strong proponent of preventative healthcare, Dr. Natasha believes “it is more advantageous to prevent disease than to cure it.”

At present Natasha and her family have relaocted to Squamish BC, where they will put down roots.
