Dr. Csilla Veress is a naturopathic primary care doctor. She graduated from Bastyr University with her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine and a Masters of Science degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Combining ancient and modern philosophies of healthcare, Dr. Veress creates a unique and powerful approach to guiding her patients towards happy, healthy, and productive lives. Her passion is to balance the mind, body, and spirit, utilizing the fundamental approach of total wellness that TrueNorth Health embodies.
Dr. Veress knew that she wanted to be a doctor and create positive and lasting change in people’s lives, so she began a pre-medical curriculum at Rutgers University. During her internship, she realized that medicine was not only a science but an art, and how doctors related to their patients was just as important as the treatments they practiced. She delayed the start of her medical practice while she built a successful career in marketing and advertising in New York, but she remained dedicated to the healing path, incorporating nutritional education, Pilates, yoga, and meditation into her busy life.
The discovery of naturopathic medicine, which combined her passion for healing with her social consciousness, brought her back to medicine full-time. Her experience researching alternative cancer treatments, and utilizing naturopathic techniques to educate patients about ways to stimulate the body’s ability to heal itself, became the foundation of her practice.
In addition, to her role as an attending doctor, supervising the fasting and care of in-patients, Dr. Veress also offers treatment in acupuncture and craniosacral therapy in the local community, as well as phone coaching services world-wide. “The challenge of working with patients who have complex health issues ranging from hormonal imbalances to autoimmunity is one of the most inspiring things about my work,” she says.
In her spare time, Dr. Veress loves to cook, hike, snowboard, write, explore new places, and attend outdoor concerts. “You are never too old to do what you love, and when you are doing what you love, it will never feel like work,” she says.
