redbg_headshotIf you’re looking for a provider who gets to the root of your health concerns and has over a decade of success with patients suffering from thyroid, digestive and hormone disorders, pain and skin issues, then you’ve found the right person.

I’m Kristy McKendrick and have been working with Austinites to recover from chronic health and skin issues by using Functional Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Naturopathy, Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine and Nutrition. Additionally, I’ve received post-graduate training in pain management, sports injury and rehabilitation, functional endocrinology, facial acupuncture and natural esthetic anti-aging treatments. I approach Functional Medicine and natural healthcare with individualized and comprehensive services and products.

I got started on the healthcare practitioner route while in my late teens. I was suffering from recurring health concerns and after a long, frustrating process of going to many different doctors and spending a lot of money, we found a Naturopathic Doctor and another holistic provider who helped me almost immediately. I was surprised at how fast and gentle the advice and remedies were. Not only was it gentle but it was natural and easy on my body.

I later became a healthcare provider because I wanted to help people using these various holistic and integrative therapies that helped me. I wanted to practice a preventative and natural approach rather than a disease management style of medicine. I have a passion for natural medicine and would love the opportunity to talk with you about how it may be able to get you on the road to transformed and lasting wellness.

Leave it to me to root out the real cause of your dis-ease and find a natural method to re-balance your body. If the natural route isn’t what’s best for you, I’ll refer you to a practitioner who is better suited to help you.

As a Functional Medicine practitioner, I take a multi-leveled approach to discovering what’s going on with your body and addressing it at it’s root, while using evidence-based medicine to get you to your desired health and wellness level.
