Dr. Darlene Bouchard (DMS)
Darlene has been in the health care field since her early teens and has developed a genuine compassion for helping people achieve better health. After observing orthodox methods of medicine she realized that getting well is easy if you follow the laws of nature. Her life experiences have helped her ‘walk her talk’.

Told that their daughter would not have a long life, Darlene and her husband struggled desperately to help her, using conventional health methods... without success. Only after using natural wholistic methods, their daughter was finally on the road to recovery. The Bouchards felt they were given a "second chance".

Darlene chose to study homeopathy with a vision to offer the same "second chance" to others. Dr. Bouchard (DMS) founded the Kas-Sky Wholistic Health Care Centre, which opened in April 2001.
