Understanding Holistic Eye Care

with podcast guest

Dr. Taylor DeGroot


Dr. Taylor DeGroot is a Doctor of Optometry who is passionate about holistic medicine. Her goal is to help people get to the root cause of eye & health problems & improve their vision at any age. While she does specialize in the eyes, she does not believe in isolating one body part from the whole since the body is a dynamic, cohesive system.
