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.
