Dr. Cristine Ehly graduated from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona, where she developed a strong background in nutrition, botanical medicine, and homeopathy. Rounding out her core education, she also received additional training in craniosacral therapy, advanced hydrotherapy, and traditional Mayan medicine.
Passionate about supporting positive change, Dr. Ehly uses medicine to empower patients to take control of their own health, and ultimately transform their lives. Using patient education and implementation of the above therapies, Dr. Ehly helps to promote the inherent ability of each person’s body to heal itself. She is an expert in treating individuals with concerns related to chronic stress like IBS, leaky gut, intestinal dysbiosis, insomnia, fatigue, and seasonal allergies.
While in medical school, Dr. Ehly was Treasurer of the Naturopathic Advocacy and Community Awareness Team in which she organized and participated in fundraising, as well as met with national legislators to promote naturopathic medicine. She also assisted in the Naturopaths Without Borders free community clinic in Rocky Point, Mexico, providing healthcare to locally underserved individuals. During her last two years of school, Dr. Ehly was the student sales representative for Wise Woman Herbals, a company that manufacturers professional-grade botanical medicines and supplements. This afforded her an added opportunity to increase her knowledge of medicinal plants and become a leader in her community, sharing this expertise with doctors and other students.
Prior to medical school, Dr. Ehly received her B.A. in Biology at St. Mary’s College of Maryland. Her studies were focused on Environmental Science, Plant Biology, and Anthropology. Before graduating, she wrote a research review on medicinal plant alternatives to antibiotics.
Currently, Dr. Ehly is serving on the Board of the Maryland Naturopathic Doctors Association (MNDA); advancing her skills in craniosacral therapy and botanical medicine; completing a certification in HeartMath Interventions; and educating the local community about naturopathic medicine.
Outside of medical practice, Dr. Ehly enjoys reading, hiking, kayaking, exploring new places, and spending time with her friends and family.
