Central Coast Integrative Medicine is owned and run by Dr. Michael Dunbar ND.
I was born and raised in Raleigh, North Carolina. I moved to Chapel Hill, NC to go to UNC-CH and complete a degree in nutrition while working as a CNA (nurse assistant) at a local nursing home. I went on to study Naturopathic medicine at the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, OR. At NCNM, I also studied Shiatsu massage.
Since I was 16 years old, I wanted to pursue a career that was sure to help others. As a pre-med student, my interest turned towards nutrition and integrative/holistic medicine as I wanted something with a long term focus on health and reducing the likelihood of illness rather than short term solutions or symptom suppression.
