About Dr. Kathryn Sage
Naturopathic Medicine has long been my passion because I believe that health is not merely the absence of disease or pain, but a state of mental, physical, emotional, spiritual and social well-being. My ultimate goal as a physician is to assist my patients in becoming free from disease and disharmony so they may achieve a whole new level of health.
I work with patients with a team approach in mind, helping counsel individuals to make choices that will have a positive impact on their health. I utilize clinical nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathy, biotherapeutic drainage, hydrotherapy and other natural therapeutics to support the body’s natural healing process. I also perform preventative exams, such as woman’s annual exams, and can order any labs necessary to best track your health.

Accreditation & Licensing
The National College of Natural Medicine is accredited by the Council on Naturopathic Medical Education (CNME). The U.S. Secretary of Education recognizes CNME as the national accrediting agency for programs leading to the Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (N.D. or N.M.D.) or Doctor of Naturopathy (N.D.) degree. Their offices are located at 3535 Peachtree Rd, Suite 520-209, Atlanta, GA 30326-3287 – www.cnme.org.
A licensed naturopathic physician attends a four-year graduate level naturopathic medical school and is educated in all of the same basic sciences as a M.D., but also studies holistic and nontoxic approaches to therapy with a strong emphasis on disease prevention and optimizing wellness. In addition to a standard medical curriculum, the naturopathic physician is required to complete four years of training in clinical nutrition, homeopathic medicine, botanical medicine, psychology, and counseling (to encourage people to make lifestyle changes in support of their personal health). A naturopathic physician takes rigorous professional board exams so that he or she may be licensed by a state or jurisdiction as a primary care general practice physician.
