ABOUT US

Established in 2013 with the goal of educating individuals on the benefits of the Naturopathic approach.  This approach combines holistic healing with modern science to help individuals achieve optimal health.

We want to help people improve their health.  We realize that some people want to work individually with a Naturopathic Doctor and others prefer a self directed program with step by step instructions.  Lucky for you, we have both options.  

Our website today aims to education individuals on the Naturopathic approach and how it can move them towards optimal health. There are thousands of phytonutrients in nature and each one has numerous actions in the body. Some people benefit from natural anti-inflammatory support, others with anti-oxidant support, etc. We focus on the whole individual while supporting specific mechanisms involving human physiology and biochemistry.

    Our Vision

    Better health, energy, and well-being for all individuals 

    Our Mission

    To spread the power of the Naturopathic Approach and to motivate people to be their best possible self!

    The 6 Principals of Naturopathic Medicine
    1. First Do No Harm
      Support the healing systems inherent in the body by using methods, medicines and techniques that are in harmony with natural processes.
    2. The Healing Power of Nature 
      Preference for noninvasive treatments which minimize the risks of harmful side effects. Trust in the body’s inherent wisdom to heal itself by naturally supporting the body’s biochemistry and cellular physiology.
    3. Identify the Cause 
      Every illness has an underlying cause, often in aspects of lifestyle, diet, or in the surrounding environment. Naturopaths are trained to find and remove the underlying cause of a disease. A deep understanding of biochemistry and cellular physiology is vital in determining the root cause of the problem.
    4. Look at the Whole Person 
      View the body as an integrated whole in all its physical dimensions. Every individual is unique, so every plan should be unique to the individual.
    5. Doctor as Teacher 
      Educate patients in achieving and maintaining health.

    6. Prevention
         Focus on overall health, wellness and disease

    Before receiving his doctorate, Dr. Kneessi was a personal trainer in Sonoma County California where he focused on achieving optimal health through exercise and nutrition.  As his interest in nutrition expanded, he looked for a more holistic scientific approach.  During his time at school, Dr. Kneessi focused heavily on the beneficial support integrative medicine has on health and well-being from an evidence based science perspective. 

    Further, Dr. Kneessi was focused on studying potential root causes of chronic health issues that plague the country today.  Through his education and additional studies he has focused on addressing these concerns.  He has attended seminars and webinars that focused on inflammation, oxidative stress, blood glucose dysfunction, blood glucose management, functional blood chemistry, nutritional approaches for neurological issues, methylation, heart disease, mitochondrial health and numerous others.
