Faith Christensen, ND

Faith Christensen is a Naturopathic Doctor, botanist and medical intuitive. She has been practicing medicine since 2001. Dr. Christensen is a different kind of doctor. She takes time to know her patients. 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 healing journey being a witness and support for regaining 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 has practiced in Seattle and Chicago before founding Springs Natural Medicine in 2006.

Dr. Faith uses the full spectrum of naturopathic medicine to help her patients achieve their health and life goals – from manual therapy, flower essences, herbs and dietary modifications, to supplementation and discussion of adjunctive support to pharmaceuticals.witnes She has advanced training in craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation, sound healing and Neuromodulatory Technique (NMT).

She has taught Craniosacral therapy since 1998 through Integrated Bodywork Institute, as an adjunct faculty at Bastyr University and through VIS Medicine. Dr. Christensen has studied with Alain Gehin, DO, Nancy Soliven, MD, DC, Nancy Patterson, ND, LM, Upledger Institute, Alain Gehin, DO and Claudia Kohn, DO. She has published six manuals for various Craniosacral classes, gemstone therapy, Surviving Cold and Flu Season Naturally, and Honoring the Wisdom in Nature Plant Essence Therapy.

Dr Christensen enjoys spending her time outside the office playing with her two children, hiking, gardening, painting(acrylic and watercolor), knitting, cooking and appreciating all that the Colorado Springs area has to offer.
