Healthy Starts Here

Dr. Yost began her start in the study of Chinese herbal medicine in 2000. Her journey to help others through natural medicine was inspired from her own personal experience of losing her mother at the age of 15 to a rare form of cancer and the western medical interventions that ultimately sped up her mortality. While western medical interventions are valuable for many lives, Dr. Yost hopes to educate the public accurately in regards to the proper use of advanced nutrition, supplementation and herbal medicine to enhance the lives of as many as possible and to provide health and longevity and enriching the quality of people’s lives.

Meet Dr. Kalena M. Yost, DACM, Dipl. O.M. NCCAOM, LAc.

Dr. Kalena M. Yost, DACM, Dipl. O.M., NCCAOM, L.Ac. is an expert acupuncturist, herbalist and advanced nutritionist specializing in the treatment of pain, women’s health, weight loss and aesthetics.
She graduated from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in 2018 with a Doctorate of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.
At the age of fifteen, she lost her mother to choriocarcinoma, a very rare form of cancer at the time in which only one out of every fifty thousand women are diagnosed.  When her mother’s ultimate untimely demise was a fibrosis formed on her lung tissue from the treatment administered  causing her to suffocate the very way that was most fearful for her.  This prompted Dr. Yost to begin studying cancer prevention which would ultimately lead her into this field in order to help her patients seek alternative options for their health care journeys to achieve better outcomes.
It is at this time she also sought out alternative medicine and advanced nutrition to help her in overcoming her own weight loss challenges.  
It is her desire to come alongside her patients  who have no where to turn who have experienced similar challenges and to give them a beacon of hope to overcome their own health challenges where they have not been able to get many answers.
In her spare time, she enjoys reading, animals, and spending time with friends. 
She looks forward to meeting you once you book your free consultation so that she can get to know you and what your health care goals are.

How safe is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is extremely safe. It is an all-natural, drug-free therapy, yielding no side effects just feelings of relaxation and well-being. There is little danger of infection from acupuncture needles because they are sterile, used once, and then discarded.
