About Kirsten Nielsen, ND
"Years before I went to medical school I reluctantly agreed to see a naturopathic doctor to help me with my health. I was very skeptical at first, then became pleasantly surprised that the doctor was well-trained, very knowledgeable, and she helped turn my life around.
While working with patients of many different backgrounds and health needs, I find that the most profound results often come from basic treatments. As a naturopathic doctor, I am trained in conventional medical diagnostic tools, which I use when necessary to help determine the cause of a patient's illness. Following naturopathic medical principles, I recommend treatments using the lowest level of force necessary. Patients who take advantage of different medical traditions (naturopathic, conventional, Chinese and others) have more options available to create their optimal wellness plan."
