Dr. Caitlin Fanning, NDCaitlin Fanning, ND

Dr. Caitlin Fanning is passionate about teaching patients how to align their bodies with health and nature. She aims to teach, inspire, and empower her patients by helping them understand the way their bodies work so they are able to honor their health with kindness and patience.

Dr. Fanning believes that everyone can benefit from naturopathic guidance. She treats patients of all ages and conditions with specialties in fertility, pre-conception care, women's health, hormone health, digestive health, nutrition, stress management, and pediatrics. She is also is an expert in female cycle charting for the use of pregnancy prevention or conception.

Dr. Fanning encourages patients to take an active role in their own health through teaching them how to nourish their health daily. She believes physical health does not happen independently-the individual is deeply affected by family and community, and the body is integrated with the mind and spirit. She has studied the body's ability to heal if in the right condition, and uses this knowledge to optimize the health of her patients. She always aims to find the cause of suffering rather than only treating symptoms and always minimizes the use of pharmaceuticals whenever possible.

When she's not working, she enjoys basking in the negative ions of the ocean air and being among the great redwood trees. You can usually find her cooking with local market foods, reading, practicing yoga, gardening, hiking, or doing hydrotherapy rounds at the spa.

Dr. Fanning received her doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University in Seattle, WA and earned her Bachelor of Science degree at University of California, Irvine. She recently moved here from her private practice from Seattle, WA. She is looking forward to serving the people of Santa Cruz and being a part of the SCNMC family!
