She focuses on getting to the root cause of symptoms and supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself. This is a consultative service and should be used in addition to primary care.
Dr. Felty listens and takes time to understand each person’s unique health history. She takes into account the whole person - mind body, and spirit; including lifestyle, genetics, nutrition, family history, medical history, biochemistry, stress, and physiology. Dr. Felty identifies why the body creates symptoms in the first place and where lifestyle adjustments can be made to improve health. She works with each person to address underlying deficiencies or imbalances. Deficiencies or imbalances may be found in: hormones, vitamins, minerals, gut bacteria, etc.
Dr. Felty recommends safe and non invasive solutions to stimulate and strengthen the body's natural ability to heal itself. Recommendations may include: diet modification, herbal medicine, supplementation, lifestyle counseling, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, massage, acupuncture, hypnotherapy, chiropractic, physical therapy, mindfulness, ecotherapy, and mind body medicine. Dr. Felty educates each person she works with on ways to enhance their nutrition, release emotional trauma, increase resilience to stress, reduce toxin exposure, optimize relationships, practice self care, and improve exercise.
Dr. Felty's Why
Dr. Felty became a doctor because of her experience as a patient. She knows what it is like to be sick and search for effective solutions. She was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis at 14 years old. She wish she had a doctor that taught her how to heal rather than mask her symptoms. She was told to take 20 prescription pills a day and to surgically remove her colon. She was never advised on how to heal her stomach and developed numerous side effects. Thankfully, she learned how to heal herself without surgery. She has been medicine free for more than nine years. Her journey has fueled her passion for helping people.

"Dr. Felty was my first experience with Naturopathic Medicine and now an N.D. is my first recommendation to anyone struggling with their health. With Dr. Felty, I felt heard and was able to have conversations about my health, as we explored the best options together. Dr. Felty’s commitment to her patients and continuing education to truly individualize care is outstanding. Through my experiences with her, my first choice is Naturopathic Medicine."
"Dr. Felty has proved to me that the doctor-patient relationship can be both compassionate and educational. My experience as a patient was comfortable and allowed me to take charge, of not just one, but all aspects of my health. I honestly felt the care that I received to be professional, yet pure, and truly insightful. Dr. Felty provides a real means of healing by listening to the patient, a skill that is hard to find in healthcare today."
"Dr. Felty is hands down the best doctor I have ever seen, and I am a tough critic. She is super thorough, detail oriented and intelligent but also conscious, patient, kind and a great listener. I am extremely grateful that I found her. I left that office a different person than I walked in. I highly recommend her."
"Dr. Felty is probably the most thorough practitioner that I have ever met! She spent plenty of time getting to know me and took time to listen and validate Me! I am looking forward to continuing working with Dr. Felty as she is positive and uplifting, not degrading. She helps me to feel like I have the ability to make positive change!"
"Dr. Felty is exceptional! She'll help you find the root cause of the issue you have going on all while being very sweet, sincere and caring. Thank you!"
"For years I’ve struggled with frustrating digestive issues. I approached Dr. Felty because I knew she specialized in gastrointestinal issues and I heard encouraging aspects about her approach to treatment. Dr. Felty helped me by changing my eating habits, adding in supplements, and recommending hydrotherapy for detoxification. Within a few weeks my symptoms had improved and continue to improve today. Dr. Felty helped me not only on a physical level, but an emotional level as well. Dr. Felty provided stress reducing tactics to use during my busy, more stressful weeks, which had an impact on my gastrointestinal issues. I found my experience with Dr. Felty enlightening and encouraging because my body is finally starting to heal on its own with natural treatments. I would recommend Dr. Felty to anyone who wants to heal with natural treatments, specifically someone with gastrointestinal issues."
