Meet Dr. Krista

Naturopathic Doctor and Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy Specialist

            I grew up surrounded by the beauty and power of nature in a town close to Yosemite National Park. I was raised to live in collaboration with the earth and all it has to offer. Having grown up in a family of conventional doctors, I knew something innately important was missing from the current medical system of the US- the recognition of patients as human beings with lives and circumstances. Naturopathy became the natural choice for me and I hope you will choose it too. 

     In our visits together, I listen to YOU and your story. I strive to cultivate the physiological, mental, and spiritual beauty that naturally resides within us all. I love to uncover the mystery that makes each one of us unique and to tailor my recommendations to resonate with your specific circumstances. We will utilize nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy, hydrotherapy, nutraceuticals, Ayurveda, yoga, meditation, movement, art, and much more to aid in both acute and chronic conditions.

Meet Dr. Adam

Naturopathic Doctor and licensed Acupuncturist

I chose naturopathic medicine in my early twenties after recognizing the shortcomings of conventional medicine, particularly as I saw my father debilitated by chronic disease after the NYC 9/11 disaster. I realized that health is more so determined by lifestyle and the body’s ability to heal itself. 

Our clinic uses life-altering, educational programs to improve your health by creating stronger foundations for health. We optimize your health so that you can feel less “stuck” and more “free” to live your life. I also use a large variety of natural therapies within naturopathic medicine and acupuncture to treat a variety of chronic and acute conditions. All recommendations are customized to the individual with a commitment to the ability of your body to heal itself.

The "therapeutic hierarchy" pictured here is a representation of a naturopathic doctor’s approach to alleviating symptoms AND treating the cause of your disease. This approach prioritizes therapies that are most effective and safe, yet least invasive and toxic. These low force, high efficacy therapies are found toward the bottom of the triangle.

 

Higher force interventions are located higher on the triangle, and include therapies such as pharmaceutical medication and surgery. While these therapies are important, especially in emergent and other medically necessary situations, we prioritize treatments that better align with nature in order to create more sustainable and long-lasting change.

Level 1: Up to 70% of our genes are under our epigenetic control. So our lifestyle plays a significant role in genetic expression and overall wellness.
