Dr. Amy Cahoy, ND
“During many years as a Registered Nurse, I witnessed countless situations of medical decision making and had the privilege of supporting families while providing medical care. I saw the work in the hospital as critical and often life-saving, but given the complexity of health and vitality, I knew there was a history which proceeded a child’s hospitalization, and a road of healing upon returning home. “
“My passion to work on a deeper level of health along with the belief that I can contribute in a significant way led me to medical school to pursue a degree as a Naturopathic Doctor.
In medical school, I not only learned science and theory of health and healing, but also witnessed the profound changes that small interventions had on the health of my patients. Lifestyle is foundational to health, but I also discovered the essential role of susceptibility and when indicated, how to properly prescribe homeopathy.
I was first introduced to PANDAS eight years ago when a loved one had an abrupt onset of tics overnight. From this experience, and many more, I have a strong interest in working with children who are susceptible to this complex condition. I am grateful for my mentors who have taught me how think critically and when to properly intervene, and the doctors and researchers that continue to provide insight into the body and how it heals. It is a privilege for me to study each child’s case and apply my knowledge and experience to help create conditions to allow the body to heal.
Dr. Cahoy received her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University, San Diego, and most recently worked as a Naturopathic Doctor at TrueNorth Health Center. Prior to medical school, she graduated with honors from the University of Minnesota with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing and worked as a Pediatric Registered Nurse for over 7 years in Pediatric Intensive Care, Pediatric Emergency Care, Pediatric Post-Anesthesia Care and various Pediatric Floor positions while travel nursing. When not working, she can be found traveling, spending quality time with family and friends, cooking, reading, or in the ocean swimming, scuba diving, and sailing.

What Patients are Saying
Dr. Bahr is an amazing individual and a great doctor. Her knowledge is built on a foundation of genuine warmth and care for others. Her ability to support those in their healing process, physically, mentally, and emotionally, is hard to find in the medical community. As a patient, I felt like she connected with me heart to heart, she displayed her compassion both in character and poise, and she asked the questions other doctors had dismissed in order to find the reason why I was feeling the way I was. Her intuition is impeccable. I felt like she continually sought to understand me as a whole person and to formulate a treatment that was unique for me. She also explained what was happening within my body and how the treatment she was implementing would help address the cause for the imbalance I was experiencing.
