Dr. Glass is excited to practice in Calypso Natural Clinic! She obtained her Naturopathic Doctor (ND) degree from the National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM) in 1998, and has been practicing medicine since 1999.
Originally from Queens, NYC, Dr. Glass always knew that she wanted to live closer to nature. Growing up with a close family member with mental illness, she resolved to enter a profession where she could help people heal. Since naturopathy was not well known in NYC, Dr. Glass obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Sociology and thought about becoming either a counselor or social worker. Neither profession felt quite right, so she took a job working in and later managing an employment agency, while exploring career options. It was not until years later, when a friend brought her NCNM’s small green catalog, that Dr. Glass had her “aha” moment and instantly knew she would become a Naturopathic Doctor (ND).
Dr. Glass instantly fell in love with the principals of naturopathic medicine, treating the whole person, and addressing symptoms of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual origins. She envisioned her family member with mental illness receiving naturopathic care, and knew that it would have made a difference. Dr. Glass is still dedicated to her original desire of helping people heal and the core guidelines ofnaturopathic medicine. She has extensive experience working with both children and adults and loves helping people create sustainable lifestyles. Some of Dr. Glass’s areas of specialty include:
- Hormone balance and regulation
- Thyroid disorders
- Food allergies & intolerances
- Pediatric wellness
- Mental/emotional/spiritual growth
- Homeopathic medicine
- Digestive Issues
- Autism spectrum
- Asthma & Sleep Apnea
Dr. Glass is a teacher of Buteyko Breathing, a powerful method of reversing the symptoms associated with asthma, sleep apnea, allergies and panic. When not in the office, you can find her exploring nature via her kayak, hiking, or bicycling.
