Jodi Kunkel, ND (Naturopathic Doctor)
Dr. Kunkel was born and raised in Mankato. She is Mankato’s first and only registered Naturopathic Doctor. Her approach to patient care involves harnessing the healing power of nature to address the root cause of disease, instead of just covering up symptoms.
Dr. Kunkel treats a wide range of conditions, and truly individualizes treatment plans based on the patient’s needs. She has a passion for botanical medicine which can be custom formulated for each patient. She also encourages her patients to create room in their lives for positive lifestyle changes, as many chronic diseases are a direct result of lifestyle habits (poor nutrition, medication overuse, stress, inadequate sleep, exposure to environmental toxins, and a sedentary lifestyle).
