Taking Pride in Our Work

The Naturna Method

At Naturna, we love to delve deep in the inner workings of the body and mind.  We lean on years of clinical experience while staying up to date on the most current research so that we can help make sense of the mysteries of the human body and mind.

Our methods involve a combination of Naturopathic and Traditional Eastern approaches to achieve optimal wellness.  Our bodies have the incredible ability to heal and when prescribed appropriately, natural medicine is incredibly effective.

We offer a very comprehensive approach to natural care, often working alongside your western medical practitioner to enhance results. We understand that seeking out alternative medicine might be new to you, so we’ve broken down our process below.

Phase One: Information Download

In advance of your initial appointment, we send you a welcome email with a detailed intake form. The form will ask about your current health concerns, habits, health history, family history, emotional wellness, daily nutrition and overall routine. You will also be given the option to send your doctor’s lab results and notes.

During your initial session we will deep dive into the details of your current health including all of the information included I the intake, as well as any additional fears or concerns.

Phase Two: Understanding Why

We then guide you through the WHY of what you are experiencing.  What the underlying causes are, what is making the issues better or worse and how lifestyle, diet, emotional wellbeing, environmental toxins and other factors may be adversing affecting your health.

Phase Three: The Plan

Next up we help you formulate a plan.  We help to customize a plan involving nutritional, lifestyle and integrative medicine to help you reach your goals.  Suggested daily routines, acupuncture protocols, nutritional plans, vitamin and herbal regimes are combined to facilitate and accelerate healing.

I had been suffering from full-body, itching psoriasis. Christina did a combination of acupuncture and ‘cupping’, and within a month my skin was returning to normal.

After just one month of working with Christina, I got my first period in years, and about a year later my cycle started to come regularly.

I am eight months pregnant. I attribute everything to the Naturna regimen of acupuncture, herbs, supplements, and lifestyle changes; they aligned my body and perspective on life.

After three visits, I became pregnant. I recommend this to anyone who is frustrated and looking for a natural fertility solution.
