Dr. Jennifer Karon

Dr. Jennifer Karon found her way to naturopathic medicine as a young adult, tired of looking for fixes with medications that did not assist her in resolving her health issues. Through compassionate care and a lot of coaching from her naturopathic physician, she was able to achieve the health and balance she had lost and feared would never return. Through her own experience with chronic illness, she gained insight as to the challenges and fears that many with such illness face. She brings compassion and gentle listening to her appointments, along with insight as to where the root of illness might lie.

Dr. Karon attended Smith College, earning her BA in Women’s Studies, and then completed her ND degree at National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon. She has completed advanced training in women’s health and gynecology, pediatrics, and Upledger craniosacral therapy. Her love of travel and indigenous medicine has led her to extensive study in Belize with Dr. Rosita Arvigo, in Maya abdominal therapy and spiritual healing. Dr. Karon has over 20 years of experience in the natural health field, and enjoys brining her breadth of experience and individualized approach to every patient appointment.

Whether it is primary care or specialized treatment, Dr. Karon personalizes each appointment and enjoys collaborating with her patients to find the right treatment plan to fit their needs.


My approach to care

Health means something different to each person. What does it mean for you? Together we will explore this question as we assess your health and treat accordingly. Though you may have been living with them your whole life, you are not your symptoms. Your health can improve. The illness, pain or discomfort you’ve been living with does not have to continue. Together we can understand what lies at the root of your symptoms and co-create a personalized wellness plan to return your body to its natural, healthy rhythms.

No matter where you are on your journey to full-body wellness, I’ll meet you there, and support you every step of the way. It is my goal as your naturopathic physician to listen and learn about your unique challenges and goals, along your path to optimal wellness. Your story informs your body, mind, and spirit health, and together we find ways to nourish each facet of your being, working towards balance and health. Your dedication to your health and wellness is truly the best investment you can make.

As a general family-practice physician, I enjoy working with individuals and families, from infants to the young-at-heart, using naturopathic medicine, craniosacral and Maya abdominal therapy. I am a mother, and find that working with children and adolescents is particularly enjoyable. Having completed a two-year internship in naturopathic women’s health, I very much enjoy assisting women with their annual exams as well as assessment and treatment for hormonal and gynecological disorders.
