Dr. Chelsea Leander
ND, RH (AHG)
Dr. Chelsea is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor, registered herbalist, and certified Bowen therapist. She is medically trained and naturally focused with the goal of bridging the gap between natural and conventional medicine. She uses non-invasive therapies to avoid harmful side-effects and support long-term healing including lifestyle counseling, herbs, Bowen therapy, nutrition, supplements & homeopathy.
Her focus lies in chronic conditions - anything lasting longer than three weeks. This includes but is not limited to PCOS, hypothyroidism, chronic pain, gut issues, autoimmune conditions, infertility, dementia, ADHD, and so much more. She loves working with patients frustrated with their medical conditions hindering their daily lives and enjoys empowering her patients through education of their own bodies.
Dr. Chelsea received her undergraduate degree (BSc.) from Auburn University where she enjoyed leading fitness classes and completing a fellowship addressing the root causes of malnutrition in developing countries. Upon graduating from Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine she ventured to Nepal and started alternative health clinics in three remote villages void of conventional medicine. They are still running and maintained today.
Seeing the need for naturopathic doctors in her own home town, Dr. Chelsea returned to Charlotte and began IVY Integrative.
Outside of being a doctor, Dr. Chelsea loves weekend camping trips, rock climbing, healthy cooking, and trying out new local coffee shops!
