This week is quite the busy week! Between finishing the
move from my old apartment to the new place on campus for my final
trimester, work, and seeing patients in clinic, I have been a busy
This week I'm introducing two of our new clinicians in the
Naturopathic Clinic here at NUHS.
(L-R) Dr. Melissa Dybala, Intern Tim Ammons (myself), and Dr.
Dr. Kathy Kaminis a naturopathic medicine graduate of Bastyr
University. She recently sold a successful practice in Arizona that
she owned for over 20 years to return to Illinois. Dr. Kamin has
had much success with weight loss therapies, chronic illness, and
as a general practitioner while in Arizona. Dr. Kamin brings a
wealth of clinical, business and practice experience to our clinic
and program. Her clinical pearls and vignettes on how to set up,
start, run, and build a successful practice are invaluable. She
will help many of us who will be stepping out on our own in the
coming months and years.
Dr. Melissa Dybalais both a naturopathic and chiropractic
medicine graduate of NUHS. Dr. Dybala has been a member of a
successful practice in Chicagoland for the past several years. She
brings the physical medicine aspect of naturopathic care to her
guidance of our interns. Combining physical medicine with the
naturopathic philosophy to return our patients to a basis for
health is one of Dr. Dybala's guiding principles. Combining this
treatment modality with her vast knowledge of botanical treatment
protocols is an advantage that our interns enjoy here at NUHS.
We are lucky to have both of these excellent clinicians join the
faculty as our mentors, guides and leaders on the naturopathic side
of the NUHS Whole Health Center. Each day is a joy to learn, grow
and thrive under their tutelage.
Until next week, stay warm and keep plenty of vitamin D3 on hand
until winter is over!
