Dr. Katarina Meister, ND
As a Naturopathic Doctor (ND), my clinical practice focuses on chronic conditions such as hormone imbalances such as PCOS, digestion and gastrointestinal conditions, nutrition, weight loss, thyroid disorders such as hypothyroidism, acne, female hair loss, chronic fatigue and autoimmune disorders. 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 to address the root cause of their symptoms. I provide natural health and wellness consultations for both teenagers and adults.
My goal is to start you on a path toward healing and guide you on what your health and body are truly capable of, by restoring your natural ability to heal yourself. Together we can remove the barriers to self-healing and work towards finding yourself a newfound sense of wellbeing; improve resiliency to physical and emotional stress; and feel strong, confident, and energized in your own body. I welcome and encourage you to be an active participant in managing your health, by providing you with the tools and education necessary for you to become your own health advocate.
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, Additionally, I worked with the WNDA to provide testimony and obtain naturopathic state licensure in the state of Wisconsin. In 2023, I was appointed to the State of Wisconsin Naturopathic Medicine Examining Board.
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.
I was diagnosed with IBS in July of 2022, and I struggled with my diet, always feeling bloated and sick to my stomach. My primary care physician prescribed a drug for my symptoms, and after taking this medication for six months I found no improvement in my condition. I found out about Lakeside Natural Medicine from a family member, and I saw my first Naturopathic Doctor- Katarina Meister, and it changed everything. Dr. Meister helped me with my diet and recommended certain supplements to regulate, and actually work at healing my intestines so that I could successfully stop the prescription I was taking. I am so grateful for Dr. Meister’s help!! I think she’s great, and I highly recommend her to anyone who is suffering from IBS and wants to find healing without prescription medications.—GWJ,70 year oldFemale
I have been seeing Dr. Meister for my hormonal and digestion issues. She is the only medical provider that actually listened and tested what my body was actually producing and not producing. With the actual information she had she was able to treat me with the proper hormonal and digestive supplements/ medications. She worked with my family doctor for even a smoother course of treatment. I’ve had endometriosis and gut issues for years and no help after seeing many specialists and spending thousands of dollars. Dr. Meister has been the only provider to actually help and I feel better than I’ve ever felt in years!—JG,43 year oldFemale
It’s amazing to actually feel good and help spread my great success with lakeside to help others with issues they have struggled with for years. Not a single regret! The best ever!
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.
