Dr. Kris Ritchey

Dr. Ritchey graduated from the National College of Natural Medicine in 2008.  She also holds a Master’s degree in Public Administration: Health Administration as well as a dual undergraduate degrees in biology and health science: health education.  She is also working towards a Master’s of Science in Conflict Resolution. 

Long before medical school was a consideration for Dr. Ritchey, her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer.  Prior to a lumpectomy she underwent a radical diet change that included eliminating sugar.  When it was time for surgery no lump was to be found.  This intrigued Dr. Ritchey, prompting an in-depth study on the role of nutrition in maintaining and restoring health.  Her clinical focuses include cancer and chronic diseases, pediatric care, hormone therapy, IV and injection therapy.

Prior to becoming a doctor she worked for ten years as a real estate broker and another ten years as a restaurant general manager and training coordinator.  She credits her career in natural medicine to her mother who started using natural medicine therapies and nutritional support when Dr. Ritchey was a child.  Dr. Ritchey is an avid gardener and loves to read.
