Dr. Amanda Hennigar, ND
Naturopathic Doctor & Functional Medicine Practitioner
I became a Naturopathic Doctor to better understand my own health issues. I learned the hard way that having a highly customized total health care plan built on a solid foundation of reasonable and reliable, research based testing and treatments is of utmost importance.
It is critically important to never give up your search for the root cause of your case. It took 20 years for me to find a proper diagnosis for my health concerns. My goal with my patients is to ensure that you don’t have go through what I did!
Amanda’s Treatment Focus
I focus my treatment on women’s health, digestive system issues and burnout and fatigue. I apply a functional medicine lens to everything I do. Always looking to see what symptoms combined with blood, stool and hormone testing results can tell me about the patient’s case in addition to their symptoms.
How Amanda Helps
I help my patients by listening closely to their case, building a solid treatment plan grounded in lifestyle medicine and by always being curious and willing to question assumptions that have been made about their case.
In my spare time I focus on staying grounded by socializing, creating art, music and cultivating a rejuvenating home space. My latest interest is achieving physical fitness through daily activities that bring me joy be it activities with family, gardening, sailing, ballet, yoga in the office or foraging for plants during a hike.
