Emily Dashiell, licensed Naturopathic Doctor (ND) was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA . She earned her bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from University of California, Santa Cruz. She received her doctoral degree in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington.
Dr. Dashiell has seen first hand the effectiveness of natural therapies in treating chronic and acute illness. She is committed to helping her patients obtain their health goals and experience life without the limitations often set by disease.
“As a Naturopathic Doctor, my approach is to blend conventional medical diagnosis and treatment with the use of natural therapeutics, including dietary and lifestyle counseling, Craniosacral therapy, nutritional supplements, herbal medicine, homeopathy, and natural hormone replacement therapy.”
While the focus of her practice is in women’s health and pediatrics, she regularly sees patients of all ages with a broad range of conditions and concerns. Specialties include digestive problems (IBS, constipation, food sensitivities, irritable bowel disease), female health concerns (menstrual cycle irregularities, PMS, and fertility) and stress related disorders.
A former competitive collegiate swimmer, her knowledge of the high demands of serious athletics and the importance of proper nutrition and health are integrated into her practice. She works with professional and recreational athletes to help them obtain their optimal potential.
She is proud to be a board member and co-chair of the Professional Development committee for the California Naturopathic Doctor’s Association (CNDA), helping to organize professional conferences throughout the year. She is also a member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP) and the Pediatric Association of Naturopathic Physicians (PedANP).
In her free time, she enjoys spending time at the beach swimming, surfing, running in the sand, or biking, hiking and backpacking in the mountains. She is a yoga practitioner of 10+ years and has a regular meditation practice.
After practicing in San Diego and Monterey, CA Dr. Dashiell is happy to have moved back to her hometown and join the practitioners at Arbor Vitae Wellness Center in Santa Monica, CA. Since the start of her studies she has always valued the benefits of working in a group setting with other practitioners. Our clinic professionals include Naturopathic Doctors, Chiropractic Doctors, Licensed Acupuncturists and Massage Therapists.
It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has.
"I have a passion for treating each patient as a individual, and empowering my patients with the ability to heal and to prevent disease."
