Meet Deja Heckard-Dunn

Dr. Deja Heckard-Dunn began her journey in medicine as a pre-med student at Spelman College where she obtained a Bachelors of Science degree in Biology. Subsequently she attended Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington where she graduated with a Doctoral degree in Naturopathic Medicine.

When she began her journey as a pre-med student, Dr. Heckard-Dunn thought that she would become

a neonatologist. However, during her undergraduate journey she discovered naturopathic medicine for

the first time, and the holistic approach to health captured her interest. She ultimately decided to strictly

apply to naturopathic medical schools and become an ND after completing her undergrad education.

 

Pairing her knowledge of the conventional medical system with naturopathic modalities, Dr. Heckard-Dunn strives to correct underlying imbalances in body, mind, and spirit that make it difficult to achieve optimal health. She believes in treating the cause of health issues instead of merely correcting symptoms. Using modalities such as hydrotherapy, bodywork, herbal medicine, orthomolecular therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, diet and lifestyle modification, and patient education, Dr. Heckard-Dunn takes a holistic approach to each patient as she partners with them on a journey to achieve wellness.

 

Dr. Heckard-Dunn’s professional and educational background includes advanced training and experience in:

  • Physical medicine modalities

  • Weight management

  • Chronic disease management

  • Diabetes and cardiovascular disease management

  • Organic gardening 

  • Aromatherapy
