About Grand Rapids Natural Health
& Kelly S. Hassberger, ND
Grand Rapids Natural Health
Grand Rapids Natural Health is the office of Kelly S. Hassberger, ND specializing in Naturopathy and homeopathic care. We focus on a natural approach to wellness. Her services include homeopathy, food allergy assessment, lifestyle management, supplements and herbs, dietary counseling, among other natural therapies. Kelly 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 can offer her clients. Although she has attended a four-year, accredited medical school, Kelly is legally unable to practice medicine and utilize the full extent of her 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. 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. Because Michigan does not have Naturopathic licensing like other states, anyone can call themselves an ND regardless of their level of background. While there are many training programs in herbal medicine, homeopathy and other forms of alternative medicine, these should not be considered the same as naturopathic medical 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.
