Naturopathic Medicine Consulting with Dr. Nicole Krakora

Hi! I’m Dr Nicole Krakora. I’m a Naturopathic Medical Doctor and wellness expert.

My passion is finding the root cause of why someone is in dis-ease and imbalanced; not just solving the symptom picture. I’ve been in the health industry for over 15 years and seen the most miraculous results when collectively healing the mind, body and spirit. Each piece is as important as the next and deserves to be brilliantly cared for.

I love working with patients one on one developing their unique and individualized treatment program. Everyone is so different and should be treated that way! I believe the body has the ability to heal itself given the correct personalized treatment plan and after restoring the basic determinants of health. I am committed to raising the standard of health and wellness by broadening my education and continually researching new methods of treatment.

I use manual muscle testing to obtain information from the body for the purpose of diagnosis and treatment of functional illness. Applied Kinesiology addresses and provides care for the physical, biochemical and emotional health of the human body. It takes out the guessing game and creates an individualized treatment plan.

Using a detailed patient history, comprehensive questionnaire as well as any labs or tests that might be necessary to gain more information about the patient, I am able to determine which modalities will best fit the patients’ needs.

Functional Medicine Nutritionist: Judy

Judy is a pediatric nutrition specialist. She is a licensed registered dietitian with graduate and undergraduate degrees in nutrition and public health from the University of Vermont and University of Hawai’i. Her passion for all things nutrition began in high school when she discovered soccer – back when girls didn’t play – and how much stronger her game could be. Not only did Judy go on to letter in varsity collegiate Division I women’s soccer back when few schools even had teams, she won the Division 1 USASA National Cup title in her 30s with her Oahu-based team. All the while, she completed her graduate work and dietetic rotations across sites in Honolulu and Boston – and even managed to create, fund, write, and produce a television program on the unique mix of people herbs, and plant foods thriving in Oahu’s community food gardens. She went on to work in outpatient care for Kaiser Foundation Hospital, as a nutrition educator for a large health insurer, and as a grant write for a non-profit comprehensive care clinic.

Though she completed her degrees and RD in 1989, her real calling emerged with the birth of her son in 1996. He showed deep challenges from birth for feeding, growth, allergy, and more – and none of her pediatric providers could help. She dug into her training and expanded it, to help him and other children enjoy wellness and their full potential through integrative nutrition. Judy became a pioneer among dietitians in using functional nutrition for babies and kids with these problems. She authored the first accredited module for dietitians on nutrition and autism in 2008, has lectured widely for several national associations serving families with autism, and has authored three books on using nutrition to help special needs kids thrive. Her client families include those challenged by autism, ADHD, asthma, allergies, feeding and growth concerns, behavior/mood/learning concerns, constipation, and more who are ready for a whole food, whole body, functional nutrition approach.
