Hi Readers! I’m honored to have you as a guest on my site. Please enjoy the information provided and call if you have any questions! I am trained as both a Natural Healer and Medical Doctor. I primarily treat those searching for internal balance (physical, mental/emotional support and spiritual guidance), athletes, kiddo’s and patients who are interested in using natural medicine to prevent dis-ease, improve their overall health or cure illness; particularly focusing on digestive health, nervous system, immune system and endocrine system (fancy word for hormones!).
Natural medicine is about looking at all aspects of YOU- what is going on with you physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually (or energetically). The type of natural medicine Dr. Michelle uses is Earth Medicine to bring health, balance and light into your four main energetic bodies (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual).
Earth Medicine is the most powerful, yet gentle and intuitive medicine. Through Earth Medicine, you can treat acute or chronic illness. You can also release and heal old or new emotional trauma, physical trauma, limiting beliefs or internal imbalances to create a lasting shift in your health. The type of Earth Medicine Dr. Michelle uses is Botanical Medicine, Flower Essence, Homeopathy, Native American Spirit Healing, Essential Oil and Gem Stone Chakra Balancing, Reiki, Nutrition and Natural Supplements, Intuitive Success Coaching and Lifestyle Modifications.
My passion is to educate, listen and guide you on your path to optimal wellness. I want to show you a natural way to feel AMAZING! To live in the flow of life free of physical ailments, emotional heaviness or self-created fear, worry, doubt and anxiety by giving you the gift of true healing, self love and freedom leading to unlimited happiness and lasting success both in personal relationships and business/school! What do you want to see change in your life? If you weren’t afraid, what would you do differently? What would you create? Who would you be?
I would love to share my personal story with you!
I am a licensed Naturopathic Doctor and Intuitive Success Coach. I finished my Naturopathic Medical degree at National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon and soon thereafter completed a certificate program in Intuitive Success Coaching in San Diego, CA.
I currently own and run Life In Motion, Naturopathic Medical Clinic in Encinitas, California.
I was born and raised in Houston, Texas by my two loving parents and chose to leave home at fifteen for the prestigious college preparatory school Culver Academies in Culver, Indiana on a sports scholarship. Attracted to the outdoor lifestyle of Colorado, I made my move west and graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder with a degree in Sociology. Soon there after left for Surfers Paradise, Australia to study the culinary arts. Upon my return, I began a program in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology at San Diego State University.
Having discovered my true purpose and passion for healing and educating BY playing and navigating my way through life and all its presenting experiences and challenges, I emerged into my true calling as a healer and Naturopathic doctor.
“Abouts” always touch on our accomplishments, but the beauty of life lives within the light as well as the dark. Unconsciously or consciously, we attract experiences into our life as learning tools to explore self and grow into our ultimate purpose. I have had some unique experiences, but so goes the balance of life, have also been gifted with transforming experiences such as sexual abuse, four years of physical disability, loss of a lover and the death of a parent. And, it was through natural medicine and intuitive success coaching that I was able to release old trauma, heal my physical, mental and emotional bodies and gain a different perspective on life that allowed me to continue enjoying the journey of life while constantly metamorphosing into my ultimate person shining light, love, medicine and knowledge on others.
I have experience working with grief counseling around death, sexual abuse, addiction, life transition (change around career, family, relationships), whole-body balancing, kids health, sports medicine and specifically the endocrine system (hormonal systems that regulates sleep, energy, mood, temperature, thyroid function, adrenal function, testicular and ovarian function, fertility and stress), the intestines (nutrition and detox both inside and outside each cell) and the Central Nervous System (brain, neurotransmitters and energy flow within).
I do believe, to truly embrace your light you must embrace your dark and love yourself equally. It is my goal as a Naturopathic Doctor and Intuitive Success Coach to create a safe place where men, women and kids can come to truly transform their mind, body, emotions and spirit to a higher level of health enabling you to live your life on a clearer and less resistant path of wellness and purpose.
In my spare time, you can usually find me paddling out at Moonlight beach in Encinitas for some spiritual time with the ocean, sweating out life’s toxins in yoga or running with the sun. I also enjoy playing tennis, beach volleyball and just about anything that incorporates the outdoors and people.
In addition to always learning the latest techniques and following medical updates, I have a passion for foreign language, culture, dancing, music and the culinary arts. She finds great joy and passion in connecting with others and learning more about the world she lives in.
Come get to know this energetic ray of sunshine that will add a little magic to your day!
