Dr. Karsten Alexandria
Dr. Karsten Alexandria grew up going to a naturopathic doctor. She appreciated the healthy lifestyle her parents encouraged and felt driven to a career that shares the promise of good health with others.
This work comes NATURALLY to her! Her patients often ask her, "Do you follow a natural, healthy lifestyle," to which she can reply, "Yes, absolutely!" She knows from personal experience this way of living nurtures you and promotes vitality.
Dr. Alexandria has been a naturopathic physician with a family practice since she graduated from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in 1996 in its first graduating class. She earned her license in acupuncture in 2000. Dr. Alexandria received her undergraduate education from the University of California at Santa Cruz.
She continues her education in the expanding field of natural healing through reading, seminars, and training on the latest research and developments in holistic therapies. She is a licensed naturopathic physician (ND) in Arizona and is a member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians and the Arizona Naturopathic Medical Association.
Dr. Alexandria provides personalized naturopathic care for the entire family. She is committed to honoring each patient who comes to her with an individualized healthy lifestyle plan based on careful discussion and testing. This may include dietary and nutritional recommendations, detoxification, lifestyle practices and hormonal counseling.
What's most important to Dr. Alexandria in her practice? The time she spends with her patients getting to know and really understand their needs. Patients find in her a genuine person who they can talk to. She works hard to offer her patients excellent follow-up and is happy to help coordinate diagnostics and care with other physicians and healers. Dr. Alexandria works with other healthcare providers to ensure the best outcomes for her patients. Her aim is to build lasting relationships with her patients and, in fact, has seen many from adulthood into seniorhood.
She especially enjoys talking to women about their individual health concerns and providing a natural health care plan that will help them achieve the results they need. Dr. Alexandria has nearly twenty years of experience with bio-identical hormones. She also loves helping moms raise healthy families and is always thrilled to watch her patients grow in health from newborns to teenagers.
In her free time, you can find Dr. Alexandria spending time with her husband Keith, her mom, her in-laws, and her dog Maxwell (for Maximum Wellness!), and her friends. She loves yoga, hiking, cooking fresh organic food, walking her dog, and reading.
If you forced her to tell you about herself, she would say she is down to earth and truly cares about people - all kinds of people. She really just loves helping people feel better.
