Dr. Bonny is a graduate of the National College of Naturopathic Medicine (now NUNM). She came to natural medicine via Japan. With an undergrad in Marketing and Japanese her plan was to be an international Pharm Rep! Instead, while living in a small rural town she found her Japanese friends eating seasonally, knowing which plants helped which conditions, and thriving. It was during this time that she first read about Naturopathic Medicine and set a new course. Also, during this time her younger brother was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenic Leukemia. Dr. Bonny returned home to the United States and saw first hand what Western medicine had to offer and it fell short of what she believed the body was capable. This challenging time only reaffirmed her commitment to learn Naturopathic medicine.
During naturopathic school she had two sons and has raised them using whole food nutrition, homeopathy, hydrotherapy, and herbal medicines. These are gentle yet effective treatments that support the body’s natural ability to move through illness quickly. If you are looking for options to improve your health or your child’s health and are dealing with a health concern, whether it is allergies, frequent infections, digestive complaints or would like to support general wellness, Dr. Bonny can help your family. She enjoys working with all ages although with her oldest, now a teen she has a special interest in supporting this age group during these challenging years.
Dr. Bonny has a special interest in children’s health and getting them on the right path for a lifetime of wellness. She is trained in advanced diagnostic testing and focuses her treatments on the use of traditional naturopathic medicine.
Dr. Bonny believes in the body’s ability to heal itself when restored to balance. By providing the body with the right nutrition, removing obstacles such as toxins, addressing stressors, musculoskeletal imbalances, and food intolerances, the body will regain its ability to heal. This is a true joy to see in patients.
