Dr. Olivia Froehlich is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor who practices holistic health consulting in New Jersey. She has a BA in philosophy from The College of New Jersey, a doctorate in naturopathic medicine from Bastyr University Kenmore, and is currently working towards a Ph.D. in Plant Biology at Rutgers University. She keeps an active naturopathic physician license in Vermont as New Jersey does not yet offer licensure.
Her journey to naturopathic medicine was rooted in believing that healthcare practitioners should treat the whole person, rather than just their ailments. She entered Bastyr University with an interest in medicinal plants and a desire to help people become healthy and left with education in naturopathic primary care, experience in anti-cancer medicinal mushroom research, an obsession with human anatomy and physiology, and as valedictorian of her graduating class.
Founded on the six naturopathic principles as well as the therapeutic order, her practice philosophy continues to develop and has since become her own. After helping clients understand their body’s unique physiology, Dr. Froehlich explains and reviews what she calls “necessary and sufficient” recommendation options and begins a thorough and supportive program of helping her clients enact change to achieve their goals. She works diligently with any and all body system ailments, though she is especially interested in cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, and mental health (and where they intersect!). Her dedication to research in medicinal botany and mycology is evident in both her past experience and continuing work towards her Ph.D. within the “Natural Products and Human Health” plant biology Ph.D. track. She had originally been interested in continuing anti-cancer mushroom research (and she hopes to return to this in the future), but she has since become interested in how fungi affect human health, specifically how molds and their toxins/metabolites can make humans sick. For that reason, she is interested in and eager to help clients who believe they have become ill as a result of mold exposure. She utilizes a variety of tools--the main ones being education, coaching-style support, exercise, nutrition, and medicinal mushrooms.
Outside of research, teaching, and consulting, Dr. Froehlich exercises daily, hangs out with her dog and boyfriend, and listens to true-crime podcasts.
Dr. Olivia Froehlich is excited to meet and support you in all of your health and lifestyle goals!
