Dr. Jessie Speirs, ND

Naturopathic Physician

 

Hello!  My name is Dr. Jessie Speirs and I look forward to joining Dr Hartman at Full Circle Family Health Care. 

 

Health is a state of being where physical ease and a deep sense of well being allow us to adapt to life’s challenges with strength, ease, and resiliency. 

 

A licensed Naturopathic Physician since 2007, I work with clients of all ages to assist them in finding this place of optimal wellness. My focus is on human connection.  I want to know who you are and what makes you tick. By addressing biochemistry, hormones, digestion, structure, stress levels, energy and emotions, we can unlock the body’s innate ability to heal.  

 

I have a general family practice treating acute and chronic illness with areas of expertise in gastrointestinal disorders, chronic endocrine disorders such as hypothyroidism, auto-immune disease, chronic pain, women’s health, weight loss, anxiety and depression. 

 

Similar to Dr Hartman, I use a wide array of tools in my practice including specialty lab evaluation, food allergy testing, herbs, supplements, nutrition, energetic balancing, lifestyle and emotional counseling, bodywork, and laser therapy.  Through connection, curiosity, and open awareness we can delve into the deeper aspects of your health and uncover the root causes of illness.
