Here's How Our Unique Combination of FOUR Very Potent, Time-Tested 100% Natural Therapies Work To Help The Body To Heal Itself
Gentle, Painless Acupuncture
Acupuncture is one of the most powerful ways to naturally stimulate your body’s internal healing process. Then, it gets right to work repairing and restoring all cells and tissues. Acupuncture harnesses the vast healing intelligence your body contains to help you heal faster.
Herbs simultaneously cure AND strengthen the body. This dual action is something unique to herbal medicine that makes it very well-suited to treat chronic and non-life threatening conditions like inflammation, PMS, menstrual difficulties, menopausal symptoms, hormonal imbalance and digestive issues.
Functional Nutritional Therapy
You'll receive a CLEAR, easy-to-follow nutritional plan. When your cells, glands, and tissues are fully nourished with the specific nutrients they need, they naturally function at a very high level. This means you feel your best because your body’s key systems are optimized.
Relaxation and Stress-Reduction
When your nervous system is calm, your hormonal system, immune system, digestive, and circulatory systems all calm down, too. This means more hormonal balance, less inflammation, better circulation and nutrient absorption.
How Does Acupuncture Help With Anxiety and Depression?
Acupuncture has been shown in studies to increase endorphin secretion (a natural mood enhancer and relaxer). It also has strong balancing effects on the neuroendocrine axis (the communication between your nervous and endocrine systems), enhances neurotransmitter function, and dramatically reduces stress – all of which benefits your mood.
What About Herbal Medications?
Herbal medicines have been used for mood issues for centuries. They restore depleted glands, balance your endocrine system, reduce inflammation and have many other positive effects on your brain and nervous system.
Do You Give Dietary Recommendations?
Absolutely. You will receive specific dietary recommendations, based on your unique needs, in addition to our diet plan that we’ve used for over a decade to help hundreds of people just like you defeat chronic anxiety and depression.
How Long Does It Take to Work?
Effects of the acupuncture treatment can be immediate. However, for lasting results it sometimes takes several weeks. Most patients start to feel significant relief in 2 to 6 weeks. Your situation may vary.
Will Your Therapy Conflict With My Anti-Depressant or Other Medications?
The vast majority of the time there are no conflicts and, in fact, our patients are often able to reduce their medications after working with us. There are specific types of medications that have a lot of documented interactions, so we will make sure we know what you’re taking before we start.
What Are My Chances of Success?
Bottom line is that your situation is unique and once we meet with you we will be able to give you our best estimate of time and prognosis of outcome.

If you are experiencing a time in your life where you’re just not yourself and doctors have told you nothing is wrong, don’t give up! You know your body better than anyone else and no one can take that away from you. I have been seeing Dr. McKendrick for a little over a month and after years of questioning what’s wrong with me I found someone who takes the time to dig a little deeper, work…Read More
I suffered from chronic pain after a series of car accidents. After my initial recovery I still suffered from pain that would flare up with cold or rainy weather or with physical exertion. My x-rays were fine and the doctors just told me I was healthy and I could take Ibuprofen as needed to reduce the swelling. I'm not a fan of taking excessive medication so I mostly suffered through it. I found…Read More
Have been seeing Dr. Kristy McKendrick for 18 mo. for holistic / functional medicine. When I was referred to her, I was in a downward health spiral. I was being medically mis-managed by my endocrinologist (for both thyroid, hormone & PCOS) and also my general doctor- horrible insomnia, terrible anxiety, etc. Dr. Kristy immediately made me feel like there was hope for me. Looked at lab work…Read More
