MEET DR. FELTY (CC)
Her Healing Story
Dr. Felty became a doctor of naturopathic medicine because of her horrible experience as a patient. She has been on a self healing journey to prove that her so called incurable chronic illness can be curable. She has succeeded after 19 years of suffering and learning how to heal naturally. She knows what it is like to be sick and search for solutions to only find yourself at a dead end. She was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, an inflammatory bowel disease at 14 years old. She was told to take 20 prescription pills a day and was urged to surgically remove her colon. She was never advised on how to heal her body and developed numerous side effects from the medications. Through the grace of god and the universe, she has met several people in her life who began to teach her how to heal her symptoms slowly. Within one month of changin her diet, her severe and debilitating symptoms vanished. This lit a fire in her to do everything she could to heal herself. She has learned how to heal her body, free her mind from disease, and release trauma that started it all. She understands the power of lifestyle habits, connection with nature, mindset, supplementation, and nutrition. She also understands that childhood trauma gets stored in the nervous system and if we do not release it, we will develop symptoms. She is here for you, not as a doctor, but as your sister and guide to optimal health and self healing.
During her four years of training, she received the standard medical curriculum that includes basic sciences, emergency medicine, radiology, minor surgery, pathology, microbiology, and pharmacology. She extensively studied human anatomy by dissecting a human cadaver. Along with basic sciences, she studied non-invasive approaches to healing such as clinical nutrition, homeopathy, botanical medicine, hydrotherapy, intravenous therapy, homeopathy, oriental medicine, holistic counseling, and physical medicine.
She completed a family medicine internship at NUHS's Whole Health Center and Clinic that helped her hone her skills of being a clinician, teacher, and healer. The internship focused on drug-free and surgery-free approaches to improving acute and chronic medical conditions.
In addition to holding a doctorate in naturopathic medicine, Dr. Felty has years of additional training in gastrointestinal, autoimmune, anxiety, neuroplasticity, nutrigenomics, and autoimmune disorders. Along with her medical education, Dr. Felty is trained in holistic counseling, somatic experiencing, functional medicine, and psychedelic medicine and research. Prior to medicine, Dr. Felty received her Bachelors in Journalism at Columbia College Chicago.
Dr. Felty has a doctorate in naturopathic medicine and has ten years of post-secondary education. She successfully graduated from a vigorous, four-year, accredited medical program at National University of Health Sciences (NUHS) in Lombard, Illinois.
Cresencia Felty was born in Reading, Pennsylvania and everyone calls her CC. CC was athletic and artistic growing up. She loved nature, singing, dancing, and drawing. CC's family moved to Indiana for work back in 2007. Soon after that, she moved to Chicago to be close to them and begin her professional education. This sparked her healing journey with Ulcerative Colitis. She met friends in Chicago who have become her second family. She has been medicine free for more than twelve years and has learned how to cure her digestive condition completely. She loves teaching people that they can improve their health too.
When Dr. Felty is not in the office, she likes to exercise, listen to music, spend time in nature, dance, do psychedelics, and research ways to help her patients. She has a passion for mental health, studying nature, and bird watching. Dr. Felty also hosts health talks and publicly speaks on natural medicine and the powerful ability to heal ourselves. She has a podcast called Less Suffering, More Healing. She considers herself a teacher rather than a doctor. She loves collaborating with organizations and individuals to reduce suffering and enhance healing for all. She is here for you and you will know that the moment you meet her.
Dr. Felty is not a medical doctor. She is a naturopathic doctor. Her services are all educational. She does not diagnose or treat medical conditions. She educates and empowers you to reverse illness and optimize health naturally. She teaches how you can heal yourself.
