Grand Rapids Natural Health

IMG_4035Grand Rapids Natural Health is the office of Kelly S. Hassberger, ND, Christine Schoenek, NDKerry Hart, LLMFT, and Audrey Byker, Health Coach. We are an all inclusive health and wellness center, specializing in Naturopathic Care, diet and lifestyle modification and additional services now including family and couple therapy and health coaching. We focus on a natural, wholistic approach to health and wellness. We hope that when you walk into Grand Rapids Natural Health, you will be provided with all the support you need to create optimal health.

IMG_4039Naturopathic services include homeopathy, food allergy assessment, lifestyle management, supplements and herbs, dietary counseling, cleanse programming, among other natural therapies.

Kelly Hassberger, ND is also the President of the Michigan Association of Naturopathic Physicians (MANP).

Please keep in mind that there is no naturopathic licensure in the state of Michigan. This affects the kind of services that Kelly S. Hassberger, ND and Christine Schoenek, ND can offer their clients. Although they have attended four-year, accredited medical schools, our NDs are legally unable to practice medicine and utilize the full extent of their training. The lack of licensing in the state of Michigan also effects those seeking Naturopathic care because they must verify the training of their health care advisor and cannot currently have Naturopathic care covered by their insurance plans. While there are many kinds of health practitioners who draw from the philosophy of naturopathy to educate people and promote health; Naturopathic Doctors stand apart because of their medical education and training.  It is up to each individual to understand the background and training of their health care professionals.

Until Michigan licenses NDs, Grand Rapids Natural Health will serve the community by promoting wellness practices, providing education on health and wellness topics and using natural therapies.
