Meet Hannah Buffie, ND 

I am Dr. Hannah Buffie, a registered naturopathic doctor in the state of Minnesota. As a doctor, my practice style is centered around guiding my patients towards self healing. I do so by listening and working collaboratively with patients to identify the root cause of their symptoms. 

I love to help individuals improve their well-being, whether your focus is a specific disease/diagnosis or your goal is to simply feel better. I am committed to understanding and helping you on your health journey. 

Something central to my care philosophy is the body's ability to heal itself. My role in your care is to guide your natural healing process. This means your care is individualized to you and who you are, not your symptoms or condition.  

As a Naturopathic Doctor, I utilize natural therapeutics. I do so because I believe nature offers the answers to healing. Each patient receive's a personalized plan utilizing diet and lifestyle counseling, homeopathic medicine, herbal therapeutics, and targeted nutrient therapy. I have additional training in gentle and energetic bodywork to correct and rebalance patterns held within the body. 

MY STORY 

I grew up dedicated to mine and my family's health. With two parents as chiropractors, I was very familiar with alternative and natural medicine. We regularly used homeopathic medicine and recognized the importance of nature as a part of our well-being. I became interested in nutrition and the role of food in our health starting in high school and would be known to bring an array of different and unknown foods to school.  In college I studied kinesiology and the role of exercise in our health, with a minor in nutrition to further understand the systems in our body from a scientific perspective. When deciding my next step in life, I knew I had always wanted to help others. It is my calling. I chose a career as a naturopathic doctor as it encompasses my belief of nature and holism in healing. I knew health was not taking a pill to cover a symptom. I knew health was so much deeper than that, encompassing physical, mental, emotional and spiritual balance. I studied for 4 years at the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon and earned my doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine. Since then, I have returned to Minnesota, surrounded by my family, to start my private practice in the town I grew up in.
