Welcome!

Welcome to our blog! 

After spending over a decade studying & practicing the art of Naturopathic Medicine in Scottsdale, Arizona, I have opened a new integrative Naturopathic clinic in Grand Rapids, Michigan. My partner, Paul Krauss, and I are originally from the Midwest (Paul is from Lansing, Michigan) and are passionate about brining truly integrative care back to our roots. 

Our mission in creating Health For Life was to provide West Michigan with an image of integrative medicine that focuses on the following principals: 

  • Research based and empirically based recommendations
  • Rooted in the philosophy of traditional Naturopathic Medicine and Clinical Psychotherapy
  • Empowering our clients in achieving sustainable and long-lasting wellness
  • Safe and alternative solutions that are appropriate for all ages
  • Effective solutions that get results and promote actual and true health

We conducted extensive interviews with some of the top talent in West Michigan and have created a top-notch integrative team. 

Health For Life Grand Rapids is all about providing you with the tools that you need so that you may enjoy health for life. We offer Naturopathic Medicine in Grand Rapids, counseling in Grand Rapids, Health Coaching in Grand Rapids, Hyponotherapy in Grand Rapids and much, much more.
