James Munro developed his curiosity for natural medicine after a long journey of struggling with debilitating chronic disease which was treated unsuccessfully using multiple prescription drugs. After over 10 years of deteriorating health in spite of receiving the most cutting edge medical treatments, he finally found a naturopathic doctor who helped him completely overcome his chronic disease within months, using entirely natural, healthy and lifestyle-based methods. He no longer takes any medications and has gone from having difficulty exercising to becoming a competitive athlete.
After this profound experience, he attended the University of Hawaii at Manoa where he earned his bachelor’s degree in pre-med biology while concurrently practicing as a licensed massage therapist. He then moved to Portland, OR where he earned his doctorate in naturopathic medicine from the National University of Natural Medicine, a 4-year, nationally accredited doctoral program consisting of a rigorous clinical science education as well as over 700 hours of clinical rotations. He holds an active naturopathic medical license in Oregon and is excited to have the opportunity to practice in Atlanta.
Munro has a strong passion for helping people to completely overcome and conquer their chronic conditions, not just manage them, using whatever therapeutic interventions work best for each patient. He believes that the best care comes from looking beyond physical health. He doesn’t just want you to feel better, he wants you to be happy and thriving and following your life’s passions.
In his free time, he is an avid writer, musician, competitive martial artist and is always looking for a new and exciting challenge.
