Dr. Faith Coats is a Naturopathic Medical Doctor from a rural area in Northern California. She was always interested in integrative medicine due to her “holistic” upbringing. While completing her prerequisites for medical school, she became unhealthy and obese. She then took control of her health and was able to lose 100 pounds but struggled to maintain her weight loss.
She graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Cellular Molecular Biology, as well as, minors in chemistry and dance from Humboldt State University. Before applying to medical school she took a gap year and worked as a scribe in the ER. It was through that experience that she realized that there is a real need for preventative medicine. This is when she discovered Naturopathic Medicine which blends her love of evidence based medicine with traditional therapies.
She then transitioned to Arizona where she attended Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine. Throughout the 4 years of medical school she struggled with her weight but there was a new issue emerging. She started having symptoms of hormone imbalance and was also diagnosed with Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth. Even through all of the hardships she was able to graduate Summa Cum Laude with her Doctoral Degree in Naturopathic Medicine.
Dr. Coats continued to struggle with her health and it wasn’t until she was able to identify & treat the root cause of her symptoms that she found a sustainable solution. With proper diagnostics and integrative therapies, she was able to correct the hormone imbalance, heal the SIBO and maintain her weight loss.
Dr. Coats is a dedicated and compassionate medical practitioner with a primary focus on hormone optimization. She has a passion for weight management, GI health, and performance recovery because she knows what it feels like to struggle with these areas. She is an avid wellness seeker and would love to share what she has learned with you. She invites you to join her on a journey of health and wellness discovery so you can find sustainable solutions too.
