Dr. Mac Toohey, ND
Dr. Mac Toohey is a functional medicine doctor who specializes in internal medicine, gastrointestinal health, neuroplasticity, environmental toxicity, and stealth infections. Her passion for integrating the rigor of science with the mind, body and soul has led Dr. Toohey on a lifelong quest to transform the state of humanity and the planet on which we reside. She believes we are what we eat, drink, breath, touch and can’t eliminate and understands the interconnectedness of how our gut, brain and immune status contribute to health and disease. Dr. Toohey strives to be an advocate and ally for all her patients by providing a space for them to feel heard, valued and respected. She recognizes that her patients are not their health diagnoses and provides in-depth, comprehensive, and individualized assessment to help guide her patients back home to optimal health and vitality.
Dr. Toohey’s passion lies within finding the root cause of her patients dis-ease. She believes the body is a self-regenerating organism capable of restoring health and balance on its own. However, this innate ability to heal can become blocked from chronic infections, environmental toxins and unresolved past trauma. Dr. Toohey serves as a conduit for healing by facilitating ways to remove these obstacles to cure and unblock her patients biochemical pathways to allow nutrients to repair tissue, restore energy, offset oxidative stress and regenerate new cells.
Dr. Toohey received her medical training from Bastyr University California, one of the world’s top academic institutions for education, research, and clinical service in the natural health sciences. In addition to graduating summa cum laude from her undergraduate program, Dr. Toohey is a dedicated life long student who continues her education through various certifications to remain up to date on the latest medical news. She achieves positive outcomes by blending clinical nutrition, IV nutritional therapy, pharmaceuticals, botanical medicine, and physical medicine helping her patients go from surviving to thriving.
