DR. EMILY LIVENGOOD

I feel there is a great value in focusing on the foundations of healthy living and working with patients to identify and treat obstacles that are preventing them from living their most vital lives. - Dr. Emily Livengood

As a Naturopathic Physician focusing on adult primary care, Dr. Emily Livengood works to address the underlying cause of each patient's concern in order to help them achieve their optimum state of health. Her areas of interest include: stress management, fatigue, thyroid and adrenal support, anxiety, gastrointestinal disorders, detoxification, bio-identical hormone management, environmental medicine, and women’s health.
