Naturopathic Wellness Center
Dr. Martin is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor in the state of California. She has been passionate about health, diet and exercise ever since she was a child and has worked in healthcare for over 15 years. Her mother had cancer and died of secondary heart failure over ten years after the diagnosis. As she watched that process happen she was exposed to the powers of western medicine, chemotherapy, radiation treatments and the miracles of naturopathic medicine, nutrient supplementation, exercise, macrobiotic diet, stress management and laugh therapy that extended her mothers life well beyond predictions. This had a huge impact on her life and created her desire to bridge the gap between eastern and western medicine. She was raised by her father, has travelled the world, worked a myriad of jobs and over the years with drive and enthusiasm became a doctor. Her office environment is family friendly, professional, personal and allows her to do the two things she does best: optimize wellness in her patients and raise her family with love and attention. Dr. Martin schedules 60-90 minutes for each office visit to allow time to be thorough in health history, physical exam and get to know each patient on an individual basis. This time commitment and connection she believes is the power behind naturopathic medicine and what makes the difference in true healing. She is excellent at what she does, can offer the best of both worlds as a primary care naturopathic doctor and health consultant, well versed in eastern and western medical processes and would love to share it with you!
In her practice, Dr. Martin provides comprehensive naturopathic medical care and individualized support that integrates the “western” MD perspective. She has over 15 years experience working in health-care. Her training and exposure with NDs as well as MDs/DOs makes her unique in bridging the gap with both aspects of medicine. Her goals are to analyze and assess all sides of ones health including mental, emotional and the pathophysiological aspects in order to optimize health. Her philosophy is to prevent illness, discover imbalances within the body and rebuild the foundation to create health. This path is achieved through patient education, lifestyle changes, nutrition, counseling and a proper support network. Her skill base also uses food as medicine, botanicals, homeopathy, and manual therapy, as well as conventional treatments, lab work and imaging when needed. She takes a “first do no harm” approach to her medicine utilizing the most effective yet least invasive approach to optimize wellness.
Dr. Martin is a member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians and The California Association of Naturopathic Physicians. She is licensed by the State of California as a ND and LMT. In her free time you can find her hiking in the mountains, camping on the coast, shopping at the weekly farmers markets and maintaining a daily yoga practice to keep her balanced and focused.
