A bowl is essentially a single-dish meal made up of an assortment of components that work well together. Pretty much anything goes, limited only by taste preference, dietary guidelines, and your imagination. Bowls offer a simple way to prepare a meal that combines a balanced portion of macronutrients, and an easy way to accommodate special diet restrictions (or picky eaters!) with portion flexibility and any single element able to be substituted or eliminated as needed. Many of the components can be cooked ahead and assembled as needed. Read more now on our blog about simple, healthful summer meals. Even if it's fall, they're still yummy! http://ow.ly/Ef9F50Boz2y

"I started coming to Naturna a few weeks ago and couldn't be more pleased. I have never done acupuncture and wanted to give it a try. Christina is by far one of the kindest and warmest people I have ever come in contact with. She gives you so much attention and its clear how much she cares. She is extremely detailed and thorough.

The office is also super cute which is always nice. So thrilled I found Christina and her lovely practice." - Jacquie

Have you ever experienced a life changing illness and been told that the only treatment option you had was to take pills for the rest of your life? One of our staff certainly has and it was quite discouraging at first, but she didn’t give up. She wants to tell her story of how acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been helping her heal, in hopes that it will be inspirational to others with a similar experience.

"I’ve “shopped around” for an Accupuncture clinic and have stuck with Naturna because it ticks off [all] of the boxes for me. Their practitioners are excellent (special shout out to Andrea!), scheduling is easy and the treatment rooms and front desk areas are clean and calming. I also feel great about supporting a female owned and run neighborhood business."

Do you think you'd be able to give up caffeine?

If you struggle with anxiety, cutting out caffeine can make a massive difference in your daily feelings of anxiety. Take a look at how many coffees you drink a day! Caffeine also of course affects your sleep. If you struggle to fall asleep at night, it could be the caffeine lingering in your system. What are other benefiits of going caffeine-free?

Better absportion of vitamins
Whiter teeth
Better hormonal balance for women
Lowered blood pressure
Fewer headaches
Healthier digestion
You could even age better!

Try switching to black tea or to decaf coffee first. See if anything changes. From there, you can slowly ween yourself off or even find a small level of caffeine that is comfortable for you.

Are you addicted to caffeine?! Tell us below!

Acupuncture can be found to help with almost every ailment under the sun. This alternative modality has been used for centuries for treatment of anxiety to leaky gut. But can acupuncture take on one of the most prevalent diseases in America?

Diabetes makes up about 10.5% of the United States population with about 0.3% not even realizing they have diabetes (Centers for Disease Control Diabetes Statistics Report, 2020). Diabetes mellitus is a physical condition in which a person’s pancreas cannot produce or effectively use enough insulin to function. This causes the sugar in the blood to skyrocket and food to not be processed correctly. Like most cars need gas to function, our body needs to absorb simple sugars via the bloodstream in order to function properly. The hormone Insulin is used to help regulate your absorbed simple sugars throughout your body. Without insulin, your body’s cells will dehydrate and destroy bodily tissues (Centers for Disease Control Diabetes Statistics Report, 2020). Notable side effects are a need to urinate often and almost always being thirsty. If left untreated, diabetes will damage your blood vessels, harming nerves in your arms and legs, leading to vision loss, heart attacks, foot ulcers, stroke, weight gain, and chronic kidney disease.

Some people love greens, while others don't. Are you one those who picks out the good stuff and leaves all the lettuce?

That's okay - a salad doesn't need to have lettuce! Look at this bowl with quinoa, broccoli, peppers, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, and celery. Drizzle a little of your favorite dressing on it, eat each separatly or together and enjoy!

"Naturna had been recommended to me for years for acupuncture.
I recently made the transition from my former acupuncturist of 20 years.
I am thrilled and receiving the help that I need from the very knowledgeable and experienced practitioners. They are very patient listeners when trying to understand my condition. The atmosphere at Naturna is serene and soothing, with crystals and inspirational photos to enhance the experience.
I know that I will be a patient there from now on for whatever ails me."

We love it! Are you ready to become a patient at #NaturnaLife ?!

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.
