Dr. Frandsen is a board certified holistic physician who received her doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine with high honors from the University of Bridgeport. She began her collegiate career at Virginia Commonwealth University where she received a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology with a Pre-Med concentration. After her undergraduate study she was an immunochemistry scientist at a Pharmaceutical company which helped her discover that her true passion and interest lies not with synthetic palliation but with the body’s natural ability to heal itself. She operates under the belief that although there is a place for conventional medicine, more often than not, disease is caused by a disruption of the body’s natural processes and prefers to use gentle and natural methods to correct imbalance before introducing drugs or surgery.
Her graduate study includes Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and the University of Bridgeport where she was trained in Nutritional Medicine, Homeopathy, Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, Physical Medicine, Botanical Medicine, and Counseling. She worked as a tutor while at SCNM where she practiced Docere, one of the naturopathic principles which means doctor as teacher.
Her post-graduate experience includes ART certification through the Klinghardt Academy, certification as a Bach flower essence practitioner, attendance of many Biotoxin Illness conferences as well as daily practice with these patients, Anti-aging/Hormone Replacement, and IV therapy.
Dr. Frandsen believes that one of the most important things missing in medicine today is the willingness of physicians to educate patients on the cause and treatment of disease as well as prevention. With the help of wellness oriented practitioners, she believes each individual patient can take back their own health and independence.
