Dr. Reis’ Mission

The mission of my practice is to assist patients, of all ages, in the prevention and treatment of illness and disease by providing personalized and comprehensive, natural health care; to use the most innovative and effective diagnostic and natural treatment options; and to always work towards cure and optimal health with every patient.

About Dr. Kelley Reis

Dr. Kelley Reis is a Naturopathic Physician, Functional Wellness Expert and a Kentucky native.  She graduated from The National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon and has been in practice since 2004  – successfully helping clients reach their goal of optimal wellness and vitality.

Dr. Kelley’s passion is to help patients heal through highly effective wellness programs combined with simple, self-care practices designed to create optimal health.  What makes Dr Kelley’s programs so incredibly successful is that they are proven to resolve the underlying inflammation and stress that cause the breakdown of health, resulting in chronic, degenerative diseases that are so prevalent in today’s society.

Driven to truly help patients get to the root cause of their health issues, Dr. Kelley’s functional approach focuses on the WHOLE person –  addressing 6 pillars of health – nutrition, mindset/stress management, hormone balance, gut health, detoxification and fitness.  Another reason making her approach so unique and wildly successful is the active mentoring role she plays in all of her wellness programs.

While she does utilize nutritional supplementation in her practice, she does not just manage patient symptoms with supplements. She believes that a person CANNOT simply be “supplemented back to health” – an individualized and comprehensive approach to treat the whole person is the key!

♦ Prevent disease

♦ Identify and remove the cause of disease

♦ Treat the whole person, not only symptoms

♦ Trust the healing power of nature

♦ Educate patients on health and wellness

“I believe that all physical disease has an emotional, mental and spiritual component therefore healing must take place on all of these levels. This involves a strong commitment on the part of my patient because all healing occurs from within.  Utilizing a comprehensive approach based in functional medicine, full diagnostic testing, nutritional planning and common sense, I partner with my patients to educate and support them on how they can truly improve their health and their life on all levels.”

In 2004 Dr. Kelley opened her first clinic in Portland, Oregon where she ran a natural primary care practice with great success, for 12 years.  In 2016, she moved to Raleigh to be closer to her Kentucky roots and founded the Natural Medicine Center of Raleigh.   Here, she lives with her husband, two beautiful children and her 95lb American Bulldog.  When she is not at the clinic helping patients, she is spending lots of time outdoors with her family, loves to cook and is always excited to find a new travel destination!
