My name is Josephine Hearndon, known by many as Joy, a licensed Naturopathic Doctor in the state of California. I completed my naturopathic medical training from Bastyr University California in San Diego. I care for the whole person by integrating your health needs and goals with safe and effective naturopathic modalities backed by research and time honored traditions.
My love of math and chemistry called me to study Chemical Engineering as an undergrad at Michigan Technological University and led to a rewarding career as a sales engineer. My journey to finding naturopathic medicine began with me shuffling from doctor to doctor, searching for answers to various health complaints, constantly feeling something was missing from the picture. Utilizing a holistic approach with the guidance of a Naturopathic Doctor, I overcame chronic ailments not limited to back pain, fatigue, respiratory, skin and gut issues and became clear in my mission to spread the gift of health through the healing power of nature.
I am certified in both IV therapy and craniosacral therapy and received additional training in visceral manipulation, mind-body medicine and cell salt therapy. I appreciate a gentler approach to individualized treatment by also incorporating herbal medicine, homeopathy, and dietary strategies for optimal wellness. While I treat patients from all walks of life, I believe in empowering families with little ones and teens to nurture the mind, body and spirit, allowing our future generations to thrive and feel supported well into adulthood. In keeping with naturopathic principles, I seek to address the root cause of illness, which is key to fostering health and wellbeing.
I look forward to participating in your family’s wellness!
