Naturopathic care through the use of nontoxic, natural and effective treatments without harmful side effects. I treat the individual based on his/her presentation and tailor the treatment specifically to their needs.
Dr. Kris Berkner is a licensed Naturopathic Medical Doctor in the state of Arizona. As a Primary Care doctor who understands that treatment of the individual is key to attaining and maintaining health, she believes that each person has the ability to improve their health. She works directly with patients that have pain, headaches, digestive issues, fatigue, brain fog, bone health, anxiety and depression, addiction to drugs and alcohol, as well as many other health concerns.
Dr. Berkner understands the importance of being healthy throughout our entire life and especially as we enter the second stage of life when patients want to be able to enjoy being with grandkids, hiking around the state, working at a job they take pride in, and the many other aspects of aging. To enjoy this stage, you must be as healthy, have clarity of mind, and be as active as you can. This can also decrease the chronic diseases associated with “old age” such as back /knee/shoulder pain, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and dementia.
Dr. Berkner has been working with drug and alcohol addiction for years and understands the many layers of addiction and dependence. She realizes that each patient must have help in the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual realms if they want to beat the disease. She understands that the person must be treated as a whole and that the patient is literally in a fight to save their own life.
In her free time Dr. Berkner enjoys working in her garden, with her many fruit trees and vines, playing with her dogs and camping.
