My passion for this work comes from many years of rich education and experience which is solidified by additional training in traditional healthcare in China. My eastern medical mindset is balanced with modern western training and understanding. It is my goal to work cooperatively with physicians and other healthcare practitioners to treat patients holistically.
Most importantly, I listen to my patients. We work together to find health and wellness solutions. I am here to help you understand why your body is reacting in certain ways (or is not reacting). I will help you develop lifestyle habits that will be beneficial to your complete mind-body wellness.
Donna specializes in gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, autoimmunity, dermatology and women's health. However, as long as a pattern can be differentiated it can be treated.
Since the age of fourteen, I've looked at what I was eating and asked myself, "Does this food clean me or clog me?" That is how I knew I wanted to be in preventive medicine. I am very passionate about what I do, and after being in a private practice for more than 9 years, I continue to look forward to going to work each day. My philosophy is that everyone wants to feel well, and it is my goal to help each person gain their balance and vitality. My reward comes from making a difference in the lives of my patients. My practice attracts a diverse range of patients with different concerns. They include those who have not had success with conventional western medicine, those who cannot tolerate prescription medications, or those seeking a more natural alternative. Although my main focus is prevention, I specialize in chronic illness. I spend time with each patient to thoroughly understand their problems and concerns. Whether a child with eczema or a senior with sciatica, I offer a plethora of treatment options to support the body's own existing regenerative capabilities. Nutritional therapeutic diets, vitamin and nutrient supplements, herbal therapy, detoxification protocols, hormonal support, acupuncture/guasha/cupping/moxibustion, and more. I also offer specialty testing in the fields of hormones, food, and environmental sensitivities nutritional deficiencies, candida, gastrointestinal processes, heavy metals, and immune function. I also offer a very affordable protocol for supporting those desiring to quit smoking and other addictions. The NADA (National Acupuncture Detoxification Association) is a standardized format treating the ear to calm the central nervous system resulting in reduction of anxiety, supports sleep and significantly reduces cravings that often arise when someone first quits. I am a Certified NADA Specialist, and it is very rewarding when someone becomes a non-smoker or is able to quit an addiction.
