Dr. Svetlana Voloshin, ND
My passion for medicine began in my teens. Although my mom says I wanted to be a doctor at 3 years old, I remember wanting to become a ballerina. However, I didn’t even know about naturopathic medicine until I was faced with my own health issues and had a severe reaction to “the best available medication” for my condition. After working with an ND for two weeks, I was feeling relieved and so much better! It was amazing how much of a difference dietary and lifestyle changes can make on our health. My ND worked with me to remove food sensitivities, reduce and manage my stress levels, and improve my nutritional status by adding supplements and herbs to help me find my equilibrium again.
After 2 months, my endocrinologist could not believe that my thyroid hormone levels were back in the normal range without medication. Much to his surprise, they have also stayed that way ever since. You see, he didn’t believe there was a natural way to reverse autoimmunity. I believe it can be done and have seen autoimmunity improved, reversed, and remitted. The same can be said for many, many conditions.
Being fatigued, exhausted, depressed, anxious, in pain, lacking energy, motivation, and sex drive is NOT your new normal. It is not “because of age.” And you can feel good again!
It is so rewarding to help improve people’s health and I like to do it by addressing the root cause. I look at the whole person; their mind, body, and spirit. I peel back the layers and use nutrition, herbs, supplements, nutraceuticals, homeopathy, craniosacral and visceral therapy, as well as other physical medicine modalities, along with my intuitive and medical skills. I am a generalist, which means I can help with anything, but specialize in sexual health, hormones, fatigue, and healthy aging. This includes fertility, low libido, brain fog, pain, headaches, and even skin problems. I can offer you PRP facials and injections, as well as regenerative joint injections to help you live a higher quality of life with less pain and wrinkles and more mobility, flexibility, and collagen. 😉
I earned my Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University California, in San Diego and I love living here. My Bachelor of Science in Biology, with minors in Chemistry and Psychology, is from George Fox University in Newberg, Oregon, not too far from where I grew up in Portland, Oregon. Most of my family and relatives are still there, so I visit regularly.
I love living in San Diego and being by the water, taking walks along the Bay, and enjoying the sun. My heart is always wanting to explore, so whenever I get the chance, I love to travel, try new food and learn about new cultures. I prefer books over shows and movies and am constantly learning. This makes me a sucker for conversations that make me think and open my mind to new information.
Come say Hi! I look forward to meeting you.
