LAUREN SANCHEZ N.D.
Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine
Dr. Lauren Sanchez | Naturopathic Doctor in Austin, TX
Dr. Lauren Sanchez’s passion for wellness was ignited at a young age. After witnessing detrimental illness in her immediate family, she refused to accept that her future was determined by her genes alone. Dr. Sanchez learned to make her genetics work for her, versus against her through naturopathic and herbal medicine.
Both of her parents suffered from health complications that weren’t properly treated or identified by conventional medicine doctors. She witnessed her mother battle with autoimmune disease and her father suffer a stroke and several seizures. As her mother learned to heal with faith and her father with lifestyle changes, Dr. Sanchez felt empowered to be proactive in her own health – mind, body and spirit. Armed with the knowledge of her family’s medical history, Dr. Sanchez was driven to make positive changes in her diet and lifestyle – and teaching others to do this is her passion and life’s work.
She graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a minor in Biology from the University of The Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas. At the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona, she earned her Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine and focused her studies on disease treatment from a natural approach.
Dr. Sanchez also trained in Chinese meridian and acupressure therapy from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, received craniosacral 1&2 training, gemstone therapy training with Dr. Sara Hazel, ND, and reiki master and reiki teacher training with Michael Abedin. She also has additional experience in Holistic Counseling with Dr. Moshe Block, ND. Holistic Counseling is an in-depth dialogue that helps patients uncover their own root causes of physical and emotional issues.
Her energy medicine sessions are a calming 60 minutes of reiki, gemstone therapy and tuning fork therapy. Dr. Sanchez ensures that each client has the opportunity to address physical, emotional or spiritual challenges that could be deep-rooted healing roadblocks.
Dr. Sanchez respects the connection of mind, body and spirit. From her personal background, she experienced the importance of whole-body health first-hand and believes in patient involvement in their own care. She specializes in optimal wellness achievement through a plant-based lifestyle, botanical medicine and mind/body counseling.
Patients can expect individualized treatment with thorough attention to their medical history and compassionate care. Her main focus is to help people gain more energy, balance their hormones, and improve their skin and digestion with plant-based nutrition. Dr. Sanchez’s passion for alternative health leads patients through dietary and lifestyle changes to help them live they lives they want to.
Patients motivate and inspire her to live a happy, fulfilled life. When she’s out of the office, Dr. Sanchez enjoys indoor rock wall climbing, mom life with her two spirited daughters, and cooking her favorite healthy plant-based dishes for her family. Her secret healthy food tip: add hemp seeds and sprouts to everything!
“Dr. Sanchez provided very thorough and thoughtful supplement recommendations to treat my chronic acne. Compared to traditional dermatologists, she spent time assessing my family health history, personal history and lifestyle choices to create a program that would naturally address my issue. She also has great access to high quality supplements.” — Christine M.
Dr. Sanchez specializes in plant based nutrition, skin issues, fatigue, hormones and energy work. She’s accepting new patients.
