Dr. Laurel Kwon
Dr. Laurel Kwon is a Naturopathic Doctor specializing in natural interventions to treat and prevent disease. Dr. Kwon received her Bachelors of Science degree in Physiology from the University of Arizona. She completed her Naturopathic Medical Degree from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2010 and worked at two medical offices on Arizona. In 2018, she relocated to Los Angeles with her family and started working at Synergy Natural Medicine Clinic.
Dr. Kwon treats people of all ages concerned with a wide variety of conditions. She uses a traditional western diagnosis in the form of a patient history, physical exam and a wide range of lab tests to investigate overall wellness and discern which natural approaches are be best suited to her patients.
In order to optimize health, Dr. Kwon evaluates each patient from a functional perspective. Lab values in the “normal” range do not guarantee good health, as health is not merely the absence of disease. Dr. Kwon has higher standards for lab values and testing is just one piece of the puzzle when evaluating optimal health. Blending a deep understanding of diet & lifestyle habits, along with conventional and specialty tests provides a more comprehensive clinical assessment of a patient's current health status. Each patient is provided with a treatment plan to get them on the path to better health and support along the way.
Dr. Kwon treats patients on an individual basis with the use of nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathy, and detoxification. Patient treatment plans are largely rooted in nutrition, whether in the form of dietary advice, supplementation, or injectable/IV nutrients. Dr. Kwon has seen high dose nutrient and amino acid therapy significantly accelerate the healing process.
When she’s not seeing patients, Dr Kwon is spending time with her husband and their young son. Her family enjoys traveling and spending time outdoors. She and her husband love trying new restaurants and experimenting with various dietary cleanses.
