Faith Christensen ND
Faith Christensen is a Naturopathic Doctor, botanist and medical intuitive. She has been practicing medicine since 2001. She has combined her love of plants, intuition and healing by learning from plants in nature and sharing that knowledge with her patients and students.
Dr. Christensen is a different kind of doctor. She takes time to know her patients. She is dedicated in searching for answers and connections. She listens to what her patients need and champions empowerment by involving patients in all aspects of decision-making and treatment.
Dr Christensen recognizes that the person you are today is a result of everything that has happened to you throughout your lifetime starting from conception. Her goal is to promote health and well-being in all aspects of a person: physical, nutritional, mental, emotional and spiritual. Through years of experience both in her personal health and in working with patients, she understands that health can only be reached by balancing the mind-body-spirit.
“My job is to walk with patients on their path and help them to identify and remove obstacles to optimal health. In doing so, people learn to identify and remove obstacles independently thus becoming a promoter and champion of health for themselves, their family and their community.”
Dr. Christensen earned a four year doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University in 2001, a BA in Botany from the University of Washington and an Associate in Nursing from Excelsior College. She had a successful naturopathic clinic in Seattle for several years, and also practiced in Chicago. She founded Springs Natural Medicine in 2006.
In spite of years of interior work, counseling and education, I continued to experience blocks to freedom and wholeness, sometimes manifesting in physical symptoms and emotional distress. I have been going to see Dr Faith for about a year. I go once a month to receive Craniosacral Therapy. This therapy, particularly Dr. Faith’s intuitive gifting with it, has allowed me to experience deeper healing and wholeness as my body experiences release of old patterns that create a freer life.
Body and Mind Balance
Ive only been in a few times and Dr Faith has been a great help! I came in with severe anxiety from trauma and back issues. Sessions with Dr Faith and the supplements she has provided helped my body and mind find balance, lessened anxiety and aided in resolving my physical pain. Very thankful for Dr Faith!
Profound and Empowering
My experience working with Dr. Christensen has been profound and empowering. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to connect with their own intuition and experience a great sense of healing.
Im so grateful for Dr Christensen’s continued help as I work through all the different health issues that come up. It really helps me to connect with her via phone appointments and am amazed by her knowledge and skills! I feel like this year has been a big one for continuing to transform and shift in positive ways! Im excited to see whats in store in the next year.
I feel blessed to have worked with Dr Christensen and see how you have helped my wife and I. Obviously I’ve been impressed with your professional expertise in healing and diagnosing. But more than that, I appreciate the way you truly care.
Thank you so much for all you have done and continue to do for our family. We are forever grateful. A large topic of conversation for our family is how blessed we are to have you in our lives. Thank you for everything!
For many years, Dr Christensen has been an enlightening part of my life. Ive been lucky enough to experience her vast healing talents as well as her professional compassion. Ive loved our sessions! Im thankful for the health, healing and trust that she built in me.
Grateful for Help
I am thankful for Dr Christensen’s healing help. I know now that God has answered my prayers to take away the pain Ive been suffering from so long. Dr Faith is God’s helper…an angel. She is blessed with love and kindness.
Healer of Mind, Body and Spirit
How can I ever thank Dr Christensen for all she has been and given to me. She is a healer of mind, body and spirit. Dr Christensen is gifted in “seeing” deep into one’s heart to know where relief and healing are to flow. She has been witness to some pivotal, powerful spiritual revelations and caregiver to my deepest self. I am so grateful!
Dr Christensen has years of experience treating many different conditions including auto-immune disease, chronic fatigue, multiple chemical sensitivities, highly sensitive people, thyroid disorders, food allergies/intolerance, chronic and acute pain, gallbladder/liver, digestive diseases (such as IBS, IBD, gastropariesis, etc.), diabetes, anxiety and depression.
Dr. Faith uses the full spectrum of naturopathic medicine to help her patients achieve their health and life goals – from manual therapy, plant essences, herbs and dietary modifications, to supplementation and discussion of adjunctive support to pharmaceuticals. She also works with people as part of their health care team accepting referrals for specific manual therapy. She has advanced training in craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation, sound healing and Neuromodulatory Technique (NMT).
She began teaching Craniosacral Therapy in 2000 with Integrated Bodywork Institute, as an adjunct faculty at Bastyr University, and through Vita Vis. Dr. Christensen has studied with Alain Gehin, DO, Nancy Soliven, MD, DC, Nancy Patterson, ND, LM, Upledger Institute, and Claudia Kohn, DO. She has published six manuals for various Craniosacral classes, gemstone therapy, Surviving Cold and Flu Season Naturally, Honoring The Wisdom In Nature: Messages From The Plant Kingdom and lectures across the country on health and bodywork.
Dr Christensen enjoys spending her time outside the office playing with her two children, hiking, gardening, painting (acrylic and watercolor), dancing, cooking, and appreciating all that the Colorado Springs area has to offer.
