Naturopathic Physician

Dr. Kelly Head is a board certified naturopathic physician licensed in the state of Oregon, currently in her first year of residency at Pearl Natural Health. She graduated from the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) in Portland, Oregon, where she received advanced training in naturopathic gastroenterology during a one-year mentorship with Steven Sandberg-Lewis, N.D. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in biochemistry and cell biology with a minor in cognitive neuroscience from the University of California, San Diego.


Her professional interests and areas of expertise include the treatment of IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease), GERD (gastro-esophageal reflux disease), IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and the treatment of stress, anxiety, depression and ADD. In addition Dr. Head brings her expertise in hypnotherapy to assist patients in unwinding deep-seated stress and beliefs that compound disease processes.

From the age of 12 when she experienced debilitating stress induced abdominal pain that prevented her from walking on multiple occasions, and included a trip to the emergency room, she has been fascinated by the gut-brain connection and its impact on digestive health. While a naturopathic medical student she pursued professional training in hypnotherapy from the NW Hypnosis Institute where she received certification in 2015.

Dr. Head is a committed bike commuter and happily resides in NE Portland, where in her free time you can find her cooking up new SCD recipes, cycling around Portland, backpacking the West coast and surfing the Oregon coastline with her partner and Labrador retriever. She enjoys reading books on natural medicine, conversational hypnosis and food politics
