How many times have you gone to your doctor and been told what to do and not been given options? The results of the routine tests they order may be negative so you look good on paper. Perhaps you were told, “It is all in your head”, but you have symptoms. Are you are tired, anxious, depressed, can’t focus, lack motivation, experience joint pain, can’t sleep, have digestive issues and just don’t feel well?
You need a doctor who will listen to you and find out the root cause of your problems. Your best results will occur when your doctor sees you as whole person not just a body part but a mind and spirit, too. Dr. Norling founded The Mind Body Spirit Center, a comprehensive integrative medicine center in Westlake Village, CA. to provide customized individual assessments and therapies for the whole person.
Medicine is more than just naming a disease. Dr. Norling helps her patients live their best lives. It is more than just taking a pill or having a procedure. It is not just the body but the mind and spirit as well. Dr. Norling founded The Mind Body Spirit Center, a comprehensive integrative medicine center in Westlake Village, CA.
She is the only physician in the United States known to be nationally board-certified in OB/GYN, Integrative/ Holistic Medicine (ABIHM), and Medical Acupuncture (DAAMA). She is also trained and educated in functional medicine and nutrition, is a Certified Biofeedback Specialist, and a Reiki practitioner. Even with her extensive education and training in conventional medicine that medicine left her wanting to know more. She wanted to learn more so she could help her patients live the life they deserve. Her years teaching at the University of Minnesota Medical School enriched her passion to use the effective evidenced based natural approaches that do not have side effects. Trained and educated in both natural and conventional therapies enables Dr. Norling to offer the best of both worlds to her patients.
Dr. Norling helps you achieve your goals for optimal health; time is provided to hear the patient’s story, specialized testing finds the underlying cause of symptoms and illnesses, education is given to better understand their health issues and the best in services are provided to improve your health. In her practice, each patient is treated as an individual, not just an average patient. Many patients come who have been ill for years and for which the routine conventional care has not improved their health or given them hope.

Dr. Norling wants to know you and will listen to you. At the Mind Body Spirit Center we see you as whole person. You are not just a number. Dr Norling does specialized testing not routinely done by conventional doctors. She finds the underlying cause of your symptoms and illness. You are treated as an individual. You are treated with respect. Dr. Norling does an extensive assessment, reviews medical records, and labs, takes time with the patient and then orders the indicated specialized tests that look for the underlying cause beyond the routine testing. This may be a hidden food allergy, nutrient deficiency, toxins, intestinal dysfunction, a bio-chemical or hormonal imbalance, a neurotransmitter disorder, or a fatty acid imbalance. The lab tests are done by certified FDA labs, including the John’s Hopkins Kennedy Kreiger Institute.
She is passionate about education and caring for patients. She believes that in order to offer the best care and the best options for patients, a physician must continue to learn. Dr. Norling has years of study, teaching, and extensive clinical experience. She does not believe in treating the tip of the iceberg with a one size fits all pharmaceutical drug. She believes strongly that treating the average is over rated and that in order for individuals to achieve optimal health the cause of the problem must be identified.
