Social Media Influencers in Alberta

Do you ever go out to dinner at a new restaurant and see people around you snapping picture of their food before eating? What are they doing, and what's the point? In this session, I will go over what it means to be a social media influencer in Alberta's food scene, and why you want them taking pictures of your food!

Stress Management with Dr. B

Sessions that involve making something, like a tea or bath bomb will have a price associated with them. Payment is made at the session in cash.


April 30thDr. Briana Lutz will be hosting a session on Stress Management and if you bring $5 cash, you can make a calming tea at the end. We know that managing life, career, a new business and everything else that happens inbetween can be exhausting and stressful. April 30th begins our self care series utlizing tools and natural remedies to help balance your body and mind. 

A little about Dr. B:

I am an admirer and lifelong student of the impeccable intelligence nature has created. Driven by fierce compassion and lover of all things botanical, I infuse primary healthcare with a natural focus, valuing education, empowerment, and lasting sustainable change.
Through individualized, patient-centred care, I inspire patients to live whole-heartedly.

At a young age, I answered a calling to be a physician. With an innate instinct to help people and a fascination of the human body, I thought I had my whole life figured out. After turning down the possibility of conventional medicine when it didn't fit my ideals, I felt lost. I no longer knew what I wanted to do, who I was.
Then I found my true calling. Everything I had imagined a physician to be, the way I understood medicine, was actually a naturopathic physician. Slowly, and then all at once, I became this medicine. 

No stranger to the Alberta prairies, I’ve got grass roots with a passion for the world. My heart, and my practice, belong in Edmonton where I am currently accepting patients at Green Apple Health Care Ltd.
