Dr. Norris (previously Knuth) is excited to be part of the healthcare team at GraceFull Clinic and Birth Center located in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles.
In her own words…
I’ve been practicing medicine for more than a decade and I offer a unique blend of individualized care to my patients. Naturopathic medicine showcases the best evidence-based natural medicine available, complimented by traditional and conventional medicine. Natural medicine works for many people and with many complaints, and it’s especially effective when it’s combined with better tools for lifestyle changes; such as sleep hygiene, diet/nutrition, exercise, and mental/emotional health. I look at the whole person and spend time getting to know my patients so I can find the long term solution that makes them feel their best.
Naturopathic Doctors (NDs), also referred to as Naturopathic Medical Doctors (NMD), offer a unique blend of training in conventional medicine and natural therapeutics. NDs attend federally-accredited four year post-graduate level medical schools and are trained in the same medical sciences and treatment options (pharmaceuticals, imaging, labs, etc.) as Medical Doctors (MDs).
Patients seek Naturopathic medicine for many reasons. Some of the most common reasons include poor outcomes with pharmaceutical treatments prescribed by a conventional medical doctor, wanting to spend more time with their doctor, looking for a provider that treats their patients holistically, and seeking a doctor trained in alternative therapies.
Dr. Norris can be your primary care provider (PCP) or work alongside your PCP or specialist. Your first appointment is scheduled one on one with Dr. Norris for an hour and follow-up appointments are typically up to 30-40 minutes.
Dr. Norris is a holistic family doctor, which means she can address most of your health concerns by offering a blend of conventional and holistic/natural medicine.

Her treatment offerings include: botanical medicine (western herbs), evidence-based supplements, food allergy/sensitivity testing, homeopathy, pharmaceuticals (including bioidentical hormones), and diet & lifestyle counseling.
