Katie Annen, RN, C-NPnurse practitioner

    about me: I was inspired to go into Functional Medicine because I saw that Western medicine often ended up doing more harm than good, with pharmaceuticals and all the side effects that patients experience. Functional medicine gets to the root cause of why a patient has inflammation, pain, or health issues and fixes it, instead of causing another side effect. I am very passionate about what I do and I feel this transpires to my patients. I love that I get to treat people who work very hard at being their own advocate for optimal health. The one thing I recommend to everyone is to drink an organic green juice every day to help with hydration, digestion, skin health and energy. So many of us don’t get or absorb enough nutrients from our diet. Gut health is so important! This is why we encourage all patients to eat clean and take care of their digestive track.

    bio: With more than 10 years of experience and a true passion for functional medicine, Katie provides a unique, patient-focused and holistic approach to wellness. She considers all factors that influence optimal health and disease prevention, including mind, body and spirit, and recommends natural, minimally invasive treatments and procedures whenever possible. After receiving her nursing degree from Winona State University in Minnesota, Katie went back to school to earn her Master’s in Nursing from Metropolitan State University. She began her functional medicine training working for a naturopathic doctor, where she was inspired to focus on the root of her patients’ problems to help them achieve optimal health vs. simply treating symptoms. Katie brings to the biostation her expertise in Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) procedures, aesthetics, orthopedics and sexual health. She leads an active, healthy lifestyle and is happiest when she is helping others feel and look their best, both inside and out.
