Welcome! I am so glad you are here.
I am Dr. Emily Franklin, Doctor of Oriental Medicine, and I help people improve their health and get more out of life.
At my clinic in Santa Fe, New Mexico, I treat a wide variety of ailments using acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition and lifestyle counseling (aka lifestyle medicine), targeted vitamin and mineral supplementation (functional medicine), and homeopathic medicine.
I have been treating patients for 20+ years, and I have a passion for finding, collecting and sharing resources to help people like you feel great, in mind, body and spirit.
Find Your Path
The path to wellness is often a winding road, and your path – the practitioners and tools and methods that work best for you – is unique to you. Use me as one of the resources in your wellness journey, and I can help you find your way along your path towards a happier, healthier you.
To that end, in this blog I will share with you many articles, books, research studies, recipes, and more – resources that I’ve found (and keep finding) to be valuable and helpful in the journey towards greater health and wellness.
Best to you, and let’s begin our journey together!
