about Dr. Derek Lawrence, ND

I’m proud to be a core member of Sunrise Natural Medicine and serve Bakersfield and the Central Valley. I have been part of the healthcare community here for years and I have been amazed to see how it has grown as more and more people seek a way to better understand their health.

 

That is what I do best. I am passionate about helping you find out how to take an active role in understanding and achieving what good health actually means.

 

My approach will take you through an understanding of your physiology, what looks good and what may be dysfunction. Together we work to understand why that might be the case (diet, lifestyle, genetics, disease) and what action steps we can take to correct the underlying problems.

 

We are not OK with simply masking a problem with a drug, an herb or vitamin. We are not OK with inadequate advice of “eat better….lose weight…take this forever” . We seek to understand the interconnectedness of our physiology, our brain, our mind and psyche and how to align all of these pieces towards health.

 

Most people want to get better and are happy to participate in their road to getting well if they are simply informed, empowered and inspired to do so. I help my patients navigate that road and provide therapies that help expedite the process as much as possible.

“To achieve true healing, balance must be restored on all levels of existence—physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.  I take a thoughtful and thorough approach to foster a healing, trusting relationship between doctor and patient.  I encourage each patient to be a steward of his or her own health, while providing support and education to guide them on their journey.  My therapies are shaped by the six naturopathic principles and serve to stimulate the body’s curative forces and re-establish proper, healthy physiology.”  - Derek Lawrence, ND
