Dr. Julia Sung Gill
Naturopathic Doctor, ND
Your good health is the cornerstone of your ultimate happiness and fulfillment in life. Growing up in the rural parts of South Korea as a child with natural village medicine influenced me in a profound way when I chose to become a doctor later in my life. I am passionate about the Healing Power of Nature (Vis Medicatrix Naturae) which is one of the core principles of the Naturopathic Medicine. I truly believe that the body has an ability to heal itself when various obstacles to health are removed (whether that being poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, or bad health habits such as smoking or over stressing) and are provided with the proper natural therapeutic agents it will surely return to its original wholesome healthy state in the absence of ailments and discomforts. I feel fortunate to get to practice Naturopathic Medicine today because of the extraordinary opportunity where the advances in modern science and
technologies from the West are available to be merged with traditional health practices and philosophies from the East. I am excited about what Naturopathic Medicine can offer you and your family. Outside my clinical practice, my other passions include spending quality time with my family, poperatic singing, gourmet cooking and entertaining, travelling, swimming and exploring the nature.
