Dr. Laurel Kwon is a Naturopathic Doctor specializing in natural interventions to treat and prevent disease. Dr. Laurel received her Bachelor of Science degree in Physiology from the University of Arizona. She completed her Naturopathic Medical Degree from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2010 and worked at two medical offices in Arizona. In 2018, she and her family relocated to Orange County.
Dr. Laurel treats people of all ages concerned with a wide variety of conditions. She uses western diagnosis in the form of patient history, physical exam, lab work, and imaging to investigate overall wellness and discern which natural approach would be best suited to her patients. Patient cases are interpreted from a functional perspective. Lab values in the “normal” range do not guarantee good health; as health is not merely the absence of disease. Dr. Laurel has higher standards for lab values and testing is just one piece of the puzzle. Blending a deep understanding of diet and lifestyle habits, along with a comprehensive clinical assessment provides a holistic view of a patient’s current health status. Each patient is provided with a treatment plan to get them on the path to optimal health.
Dr. Laurel treats patients on an individual basis with the use of clinical nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathy, and detoxification. Patient treatment plans are largely rooted in nutrition, whether in the form of dietary advice, supplementation, or injectable nutrients. Dr. Laurel has seen high dose choice nutrient and amino acid therapy accelerate the healing process.
When she’s not seeing patients, Dr. Laurel is spending time with her husband and their young son. Her family enjoys traveling and spending time outdoors. She and her husband love trying new restaurants and experimenting with various dietary cleanses.
