Natural Medicine

Located in Eagle River, Alaska, Dr. Dan Young ND, LAc and his team of caring professionals at The Center for Natural Medicine are here to help you enjoy a long and healthy life utilizing naturopathic and acupuncture modalities.

The body can be very self-healing and we believe in helping you achieve as much of your own body’s ability to get you through medically challenging times.

As a Naturopathic Doctor (ND), Dr. Young is trained in all aspects of medicine, with the skills to treat and help with a comprehensive list of health conditions affecting people of all ages.

Whether you are a lifelong fan of functional medicine or are new to the idea, we are here to help identify the underlying causes that are preventing healing from occurring. We then offer a natural, scientific course of treatment personalized to your specific needs.

Dr. Young is a licensed LAc and blends his naturopathic experience with acupuncture every day. Acupuncture is a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as qi or chi (CHEE) flows through pathways (meridians) in your body.

Acupuncture helps to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. This stimulation helps boosts your body’s natural painkillers and increases blood flow.
