Port City Integrative Health
Dr Hardy never loses sight of the responsibility that comes with being entrusted with someone’s health. Many of her patients are looking for answers they have not found elsewhere, therefore she uses a big tool kit to diagnose and treat health imbalances. Her focus is on diet, life counseling, acupuncture, natural supplements, functional medicine tests, herbal remedies, homeopathy and many other effective therapies to reverse chronic disease and help her patients heal.
Dr. Anne Frances Hardy earned both a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine and a Master of Science in Oriental Medicine with high honors from the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon. She then completed a 2-year medical residency through the Bastyr University Residency Program, with a focus of general family medicine, women’s health, and chronic diseases such as autoimmune diseases and cancer. In addition, Dr. Hardy took part in the Naturopathic Education and Research Consortium and was co-investigator for clinical trials studying natural remedies. Prior to attending medical school, she received a Bachelor of Science in Medical Biology at the University of New England in southern Maine. She is licensed by the state of New Hampshire and Massachusetts and is nationally board certified in acupuncture by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
In order to attain a clear and complete understanding of her patients’ health, she uses multiple forms of medical diagnosis, including naturopathic, functional medicine, Chinese and conventional western medical techniques. Her goal is to discover how all of your symptoms relate, in order to get to the root cause of your health condition.
She maintains a general family practice, and holds special interests in women’s health, hormonal imbalances, pediatrics, complementary cancer care, digestive issues, diabetes prevention, fertility enhancement, weight loss, chronic fatigue and autoimmune diseases. She enjoys treating the entire family, from babies to our mature adults.
She devotedly adheres to the naturopathic philosophical principle “Doctor As Teacher”. She believes it is important for her patients to understand the imbalance in their body, the cause and the solution.
Dr. Hardy returned home to New England in 2014 so her children could benefit from the love and attention of aunts, uncles and grandparents. Prior to this transition, Dr. Hardy taught master-level medical science courses at The Institute of Clinical Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Honolulu, Hawaii. These courses included Anatomy and Physiology, Pathophysiology I, II, III, Clinical Physical Diagnosis and Clinical Nutrition. She has given numerous health lectures to the general public and various organizations on topics such as women’s hormonal health, heart disease & diabetes support, whole body detoxification, stress prevention and weight loss. Dr. Hardy is available to give health talks and classes tailored to meet the needs of your community groups, businesses and organizations. She is extremely passionate about educating her patients and the public on how they can use natural medicine to improve their lives.
