For today's #FoodFriday let's look at a classic - Avocado Toast!

Mash your avocado and add extra virgin olive oil, and some sea salt or pink salt. Sounds great, right? Well, what else can we do to spice up this recipe?!

There's a few things you can do! Try adding baby tomatoes cut in half with a little balsamic drizzle. OR, add a fried egg on top! You can also use spinach or garlic if you'd like!

What variations do YOU use on your avocado toast?!

Heal Your Gut: Revive Your Thyroid Function

Did you know that 20% of thyroid function depends on what is taking place in the gut? Read more about it in this week's blog!

The relationship between the gut microbiome and the thyroid exist on a dynamic axis. When one is compromised, the other is affected. Whenever there are disturbances in the gut, it affects the thyroid, and when the thyroid malfunctions, it leads to inflammation and compromised gut health. So the cycl

SIBO, or Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth, is a serious health condition that affects the small intestine. Typically, it occurs when certain bacteria (that is completely normal in other areas of our gut) begin to leak and grow into the small intestine. And like many intestinal tract-related issues, SIBO has many symptoms:

Stomach pain after meals
Bloating and cramps
Diarrhea or constipation
Indigestion and gassiness
Feeling constantly full
Malnutrition and weight loss

These unpleasant symptoms will often occur after consuming foods that are high in sugars or fiber. Think sodas, desserts, pinto beans, and certain bran-based cereals and breads. So many who suffer from SIBO (and the associated leaky gut syndrome) choose to try out one or several diets to reduce these symptoms.

"The effects stress has on the body are diverse and pervasive, and they are interrupting the exact biological processes that need to be in good health for pregnancy to occur and persist." Read more in today's blog!

"I've been seeing Dr. Christina to treat a bout of fatigue and low energy. Not only does her acupuncture treatment give me an immediate boost (that leaves me feeling like I'm floating the minute I walk out of the clinic), she has been coaching me with a nutrition plan that goes hand in hand with the acupuncture. She's quite knowledgeable about the links between body and mind and has an intuitive way of "seeing" what is going on with me, to figure out the best treatment. I feel "lighter" than I have in a long time, and I am regaining my energy day by day, the natural way. Aside from this, she has a delightfully warm and caring approach, which is much appreciated from a health practitioner! I highly recommend working with her." - SR

Did you know we offer Moxibustion therapy?

Also known as moxa, moxibustion is the process of burning a root called mugwort sage (artemisia vulgaris) burned at or above certain acupuncture points to elicit a therapeutic effect. It is a treatment strategy under the umbrella of traditional Chinese medicine, which also includes interventions such as acupuncture, Tuina/massage, auricular acupuncture, and acupressure. It is a simple technique that involves no pain. The effectiveness of moxibustion is two-fold: the body responds physiologically to heat stimulation generated by burning moxa, and also responds to the chemical components in mugwort leaves. Moxa is used extensively in China and a bit in the United States, but it receives far less attention than acupuncture.

Yes, it's Monday, but remember that both relaxation and movement are important for our health. We must be active in our lives, and equally disciplined about resting. Studies have shown that the brain needs small breaks in order to recharge and function better. In this world we often stay in constant motion, and fall to our beds at the end of the day only to be kept up by the movement of our thoughts. Relaxing during the day can actually help you be more ready for sleep too.

So, what are you doing today to take a break for yourself and your mind?

We offer Eastern Food Therapy -- but what does that entail?

Well, the tenants of traditional Chinese medicine include understanding your body’s energy and how it travels through the body. There are several different types of energies, and when they are disrupted it can impact your whole life. Using these tenants, we can help you modify your diet to include habits and foods that nurture your body’s energies and help influence them to positively impact your health. In the West, we often describe our foods by the protein, carbohydrate, and fat makeup of each food. However, in Eastern medicine, foods are described by either being warming or cooling, and the flavors are determined by the effects of the food on our bodies. Essentially, when a food is described as warming, it indicates the food is warming the body’s Qi from the inside out and gives us more energy and keeps us moving. Cooling foods, of course, do the opposite. In terms of flavor, Eastern Medicine acknowledges salty foods affects the kidneys and moves inwards and outwards, so salty foods can be either warming or cooling. Sour foods affect the liver while sweet foods affect the spleen. Bitter foods affect the heart and move downwards, and pungent foods affect the lungs and move outwards and upwards. Having a good balance of foods in relation to their temperature and effects on the body is a key concept in Eastern Medicine, and ‘bingeing’ towards any one of these flavors or temperatures will always generally do more harm than benefit.

It’s unusual to be thinking about upper-respiratory tract immunity when the summer solstice is upon us, but this is no usual summer. The current global pandemic makes the topic of respiration relevant even in what is normally the off season for flu-like viral infections. With so much still unclear about the risk factors and impacts of Covid-19, prevention is the best approach for nearly all of us. For starters, that obviously means following appropriate protocols for hand washing, social distancing and personal protective gear. But in case these barrier methods fail, it would be reassuring to have an immune system that is up to the task of tackling the virus before the health ramifications get severe.

"The days may be getting shorter, and we may be getting older, but that doesn’t mean we don’t play a role in our own fertility." Check out this week's blog to learn more!

As we slowly move beyond the summer solstice, it’s impossible not to think about how the days are now getting shorter. Though the shift is nearly imperceptible, we know all too well that with each passing day, there is less and less summer left (despite that the season technically just started). &

Infertility issues and miscarriage can be caused by many causes and factors, such as chromosomal abnormalities, thyroid irregularities, structural issues, and even all the toxins around us.

However, did you know that inherited thrombophilias (AKA, genetically-caused blood clots) can be a cause of miscarriage and unexplained infertility as well?

If you’ve been through a miscarriage, we understand your heartbreak. If you’re having trouble with fertility, we know it’s downright frustrating. This is why, instead of leaving women grasping for answers, we want to educate and empower you to understand what might be going on, and inherited thrombophilia could be an underlying issue.

In this recent blog post, we uncover these common genetically-caused blood clotting disorders:
FV Leiden
Prothrombin G20210A
MTHFR C677T

Are you wondering what the heck is cupping therapy?! We'll tell you!

Cupping therapy is an ancient method of Chinese Medicine where the practitioner places special cups (often made of glass) onto your skin and creates suction. Your skin rises underneath the cups and reddens as the blood vessels expand. This creates greater blood flow, reduces pain and inflammation, and is often equated to a deep-tissue massage and helps with relaxation.

Our Story

Naturna Institute brings an Integrative approach to healthcare by combining Eastern & Western expertise in acupuncture, nutrition and mind-body modalities.

The Naturna Method

Our approach is holistic and thorough. We begin our first session with an in-depth lifestyle intake, building a comprehensive knowledge base from which we assess the state of your health and create a custom health plan for you. Built into each appointment is our one-on-one counseling, plus Q&A periods to help empower you to maintain your healthiest lifestyle. We also supply you with useful tips and information about natural medicine and other topics through patient handouts and online resources. Between sessions we make ourselves available for support. As you work with us, you’ll find your knowledge and curiosity expanding and we will meet your questions and concerns every step of the way.

The Best of East and West

We embrace the discipline of Integrative Medicine. The fusion of conventional medical practices with a natural approach to healing, the Integrative Medicine model seeks to diminish the debilitating effects of disease by relieving stress in the body, wherever it appears. As a result, through our specialized natural medicine protocols, we are able to help your body trigger its own ability to heal and thereby regain balance, energy, and vitality.

Who We Treat

We welcome everyone into our space, providing evidence-based, holistic treatment to people of any gender, ethnicity, and age, including babies from just a few weeks old to great-grandparents. We are a LGBTQ+ friendly practice treating all types of patients and families. We provide safe and inclusive care without judgment and are open to working with your specific health concerns and needs.
