Dr. Emily Franklin is a Functional Medicine practitioner, a Doctor of Oriental Medicine, an herbalist, and a Certified Holistic Nutritionist with 25+ years of experience helping people achieve better health. Dr. Emily uses a combination of
- holistic nutrition (with a focus on lower-carb, Paleo/Primal whole foods)
- guided intermittent fasting
- customized herbs & supplements
- Western lab testing (blood and urine), and
- lifestyle guidance to improve sleep, stress-resilience, movement, creativity, connection, and more!
to effectively treat a wide variety of health conditions.
Dr. Emily came to be a holistic health practitioner through her own lifelong journey of healing – as a child, she had many food sensitivities, and as a young adult, experienced digestive problems, headaches, and hormone imbalances that led to depression and anxiety as well as a compromised immune system.
In her late 20s, Dr. Emily had a life-threatening reaction to exposure to toxic chemicals, and underwent several months of Western medical treatment that, while it saved her life, caused other long-lasting negative health effects.
This experience led her on a path of discovery of holistic medicine to restore her own health and vitality. She spent several years doing a deep dive into learning about many natural healing modalities, including Western herbs, homeopathy, holistic nutrition, Reiki, Ayurveda, yoga, meditation, and Chinese Medicine.
Her learning journey – which continues to this day – has made Dr. Emily a passionate believer in the power of natural medicine and healthy lifestyle choices to improve and optimize health and wellness.
If you are someone who prefers to use natural methods to support, restore and maintain your health and wellness, and who prefers to avoid pharmaceuticals (prescription medications) whenever possible, then Dr. Emily is a great choice for you as a primary care practitioner and/or as a support person as part of your health care team.
