Have you been suffering with complicated and unresolved health issues? Are you frustrated that you have seen many medical providers and still don’t feel better yet?

Are you ready to see a holistic medical provider who specializes in chronic health conditions and does a thorough investigation into all of your health concerns to come up with a customized health restoration plan, using natural medicine therapies, to get your health back on track?

Hi, I’m Dr. Kristy McKendrick, ND, DACM, DOM (FL), MAcOM, LAc, Dipl. OM (NCCAOM). I have a very unique practice because we specialize in helping people who have complicated and chronic health issues such as: autoimmune disease, thyroid dysfunction, Hashimoto’s, hormone imbalances, digestive problems, pain and fibromyalgia.

I believe that you know your body best. At Bliss Wellness Center, you’ll never hear that you’re imaging something or that there’s nothing you can do. There’s ALWAYS something that can be done to improve your health and feeling of being healthy. You just need someone who is trained in that way of thinking who has many natural therapies to use to guide your body back into balance.

Natural Medicine Training

My comprehensive training and experience in Functional Medicine, Asian/Chinese Medicine, Nutrition,  Herbal Medicine and Naturopathy allows me to help you find solutions to your health concerns, once and for all. You get 4 practitioners in one:

  1. Functional Medicine doctor who looks at you as a whole person to discover what is off in the body and correct it. Labs and diagnostics tell us a lot and guide the wellness conversation. It’s one factor in helping you to feel better.
  2. An Acupuncturist and Chinese Medicine Doctor who draws upon 3000 years of wisdom and experience in balancing the body with natural and effective modalities.
  3. A Nutritionist and Herbalist who will evaluate your nutrition and meal plan and help you plan out what you should and should not be eating, based on your condition and needs. I also support the body with customized Herbal Medicine and targeted Nutritional Supplements to help your body heal faster.
  4. A Naturopath who believes that the body can heal itself, when given the right conditions. And my job is to figure out what conditions are helping you that you need, and what conditions must be changed in order to get your health back on track.

If you fall into that gray area on the health spectrum that is misunderstood, misdiagnosed or you’re just not getting the care and results you desire, contact us.

New Patient Appointment

If you’re ready to have a conversation to see how/if we could help you, contact us via phone or online form. Our scheduling coordinator will get you set up for an appointment to come in and meet with us.  You can expect a very comprehensive and thorough evaluation and examination so we can get to the root of your health concerns. From there, you will receive a customized health program that guides you through the steps to take, and in the proper order, to restore your health.

We know you’re looking for solutions to your health problems and not just a medical provider who looks at and addresses your symptoms, but address all of the factors that make up your current state of health.


Functional Medicine is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that addresses the root cause, rather than just symptoms, to identify the complexity of your health issues. Patients and practitioners work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness.

Once we figure out the underlying causes, we provide proven holistic and natural therapies to bring your body back into balance. Generally, natural therapies are closer to nature, cheaper and less invasive than conventional therapies. Read More…
