Specializing in Endocrinology, Autoimmune Disorders, Hormone Balancing and Metabolism
Dr. Renee Young is a Naturopathic Doctor licensed by the state of California as a primary care doctor. While Dr. Young specializes women’s health, including hormone disorders, menopausal symptoms, and weight loss, she treats patients of all ages with a variety of conditions. In 2002 she earned her doctorate degree in Naturopathic Medicine at the University of Bridgeport in Bridgeport, Conn. She is also a graduate of Moravian College (Penn.) where she received a B.S. in both biology and psychology. She was one of the first Naturopathic Doctors licensed in California.
One of the things Dr. Young is most admired for amongst her patients is that she is passionate about taking the time to get to know you – not just your symptoms – so that she can deliver an individualized treatment plan specifically designed to restore and maintain your optimal wellness.
Personal experience with the limitations of traditional medicine in treating her own bouts with illness is what attracted Dr. Young to her field. The detective work done by a naturopathic doctor – asking lots of questions beyond the typical ones about symptoms and health history – was what finally got to the root cause of her illness and restored her to good health, a philosophy that is at the core of the way we practice medicine at Young Naturopathic Center for Wellness.
Dr. Young’s extensive clinical experience includes her residency as a primary care doctor at the Weight Loss & Natural Medicine Clinic in Cheshire, Connecticut. During her residency she treated individuals with a variety of conditions that contributed to their weight gain, such as thyroid disorders, menstrual irregularities, peri-menopause, polycystic ovarian syndrome, autoimmune diseases, food allergies, and many more.
Dr. Young has trained with some of the country’s leading Naturopathic and Medical doctors in the field of Alternative Medicine. These include: David L. Katz, M.D., M.P.H., F.A.C.P.M., F.A.C.P. at Yale New Haven Integrative Medical Center, Griffin Hospital; Tori Hudson, ND, expert in women’s health; Jonathan Wright, MD, bio-identical hormone replacement guru and Rick Marinelli, ND expert in prolo-therapy and pain management.
Dr. Young is a member of the California Naturopathic Doctors Association. She is also an active member of Backcountry Hunters And Anglers. She is passionate about land preservation for the purpose of sourcing food and enjoying the outdoors.
