Dr. Katarina Meister, ND
As a Naturopathic Doctor (ND), my goal is to help guide you on what your health and body are truly capable of, by restoring your natural ability to heal yourself. The goal is to get you to a place where you can find a newfound sense of wellbeing; improve resiliency to physical and emotional stress; and feel strong, confident, and energized in your own body. My passion is to start you on a path toward healing and to also provide you with the tools and education so that you can be your own health advocate. I manage each patient with an individualized, evidenced-based, and holistic approach that may include lifestyle changes, functional lab analyses, botanical medicine, homeopathic medicine, and nutritional therapies.
My clinical practice focuses on chronic conditions such as hormone imbalances, digestion, gastrointestinal conditions, nutrition, weight loss, thyroid, hypothyroidism, acne, naturally healthy skin, female hair loss, chronic fatigue and autoimmune disorders.
As a licensed Naturopathic Doctor (ND) I graduated with high remarks from Bastyr University California, a four-year post-graduate nationally accredited naturopathic medicine program. My clinical experience at Bastyr University included providing naturopathic primary patient care as well as working alongside MD’s at an integrative Urgent Care & Internal Medicine clinic. In both of these settings, I have seen first-hand how naturopathic medicine plays a major role in providing safe, reliable, and cost-effective primary care medicine alongside the conventional model. Outside of my curriculum I completed several certifications including Craniosacral therapy, Kinesio Taping, Biofeedback, and Microcurrent Neurofeedback.
I am dedicated to educating various audiences including the wider medical community and the public about naturopathic medicine. I have active professional memberships with the Wisconsin Naturopathic Doctors Association, and the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians. Additionally, I am eager to obtain naturopathic state licensure across the midwest area specifically in the state of Wisconsin, as I am originally from the Chicago suburbs and spent most of my summers boating in Wisconsin. In my free time I enjoy being active outdoors with my black lab, Maverick, cooking new healthy recipes, spending quality time with close family and friends, and traveling.
My experience at Lakeside Natural Medicine has been nothing but positive and life changing. Prior to attending Lakeside I had an unexplained weight gain, mood swings, irregular periods and low energy levels. In general I did not feel like myself. Today I am proud to say that I am the healthiest I have ever been. I am now able to maintain a healthy weight, regular energy levels, maintain better mental health and my menstrual cycles are back to normal. Four to five months after my first appointment is when I started to see these positive changes.—ES,22 year oldFemale
All of these changes were achievable with the helpful recommendations from the doctors at Lakeside. One of the first things I did was a saliva test that measured my hormone levels which were ultimately the causes of the negative changes in my body. I made dietary changes, started to take natural supplements and made more efforts to exercise.
Dr Meister was nothing but supportive, encouraging and professional as she helped me get to the root of my health issues. You can tell she truly cares for the well being of her patients and aims to provide the best long lasting natural solutions.
