Dr. Jennifer Markham, ND
Licensed Naturopathic Doctor
From a young age, I have embraced & practiced an active lifestyle of healthy eating, exercise, acupuncture, yoga & meditation. Even with this “healthy lifestyle”, I was challenged through a litany of dis-eases & couldn’t seem to reach nor maintain an optimal state of “health”. Conventional medicine worsened my conditions & led me on a journey to discover how I could heal myself. Taking keen advice from the old adage, “Physician heal thyself,” I spent years with a brilliant mentor who ultimately taught me how to become free from dis-ease, & how liberating it is!
My disease & health journey has led me here, to you. As your physician & healer, my intention is to teach you how to tap into the innate wisdom within your body that has the ability to return itself to a balanced state of Being. I encourage you to commit to yourself as I guide, assist & support you in finding harmony where dis-ease cannot reside. Healing the body, mind & soul is a journey back to Self, a journey back to who you truly are.
At the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, I was immersed in the art & science of naturopathic medicine, learning various avenues to guide & support healing on every level, unique to each individual: YOU. I holistically apply healing techniques to the Whole Being, not just its parts (i.e. symptoms). Health is defined as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity” (WHO 1948). Healing, therefore, is a harmonization of the whole being, which is the ultimate goal of any treatment plan you adopt with me.
Every journey begins with that first step, which is taken when you choose to say Yes to yourself, your health, & your journey. If not now, then when? Trust yourself, trust the process. You are meant to be challenged in ways to find your strengths. I will help you find them...

Health is not merely the absence of disease, but the actualization of health, harmony, freedom, and love within, and without
