Jackie Christensen, Ph.D., Naturopath & Ayurveda Practitioner
Jackie uses both a Western and Ayurvedic approach to reinvigorate the body and remove toxins that are blocking vital energy; aid the body in its natural course toward healing; assess the whole person, not just the symptoms and search for the underlying causes for imbalance.
Jackie focuses on the importance of digestion and elimination to maintain health and the ayurvedic approach works wonders for leaky gut, chronic inflammation, autoimmune conditions and irritable bowel. She specializes in treating digestive issues, food intolerances, blood sugar balancing, detoxification and cholesterol balancing.
Clients receive an individualized and multidimensional plan for wellness. The initial consultation includes a comprehensive analysis of concerns, pulse, nail, hand and tongue diagnostics, and a physical examination. Recommendations may include dietary guidelines, herbal formulas, relaxation techniques, detoxification therapies, exercise, bodywork and lifestyle recommendations to restore health.
Jackie currently teaches herbology, ayurveda, detoxification and weight loss courses through Cabrillo College Extension, Mount Madonna Institute of Ayurveda and the Kingdom College of Natural Health.
