After practicing in Oakland, CA and Washington, DC, I opened Charm City Natural Health in Baltimore in 2015, and we are rocking and rolling! I have a general practice seeing a lot of diabetes, hypothyroidism, fatigue, anxiety, autoimmunity and depression, and I use homeopathy in about 90% of my patients, with about 20% receiving homeopathy as the primary or exclusive intervention. I work hard to ‘keep my eye on the ball’ and know where herbal, nutritional and other interventions are working, so I can accurately assess response to the homeopathic remedy.

Outside the practice, I love spending time with my beautiful wife and our two-year-old daughter; having a toddler is giving me a great excuse to visit the zoo and aquarium regularly, which I’m more than happy to take. We also love travel and good food, and I especially love cooking good food from our weekly CSA – even in the dead of winter, when the turnips seem endless! I love watching and playing soccer (Go Sounders!) and can’t wait for Baltimore to get a team, though in the meantime, I spend an inordinate amount of time checking scores between patients.

Kristaps first studied with NESH at our 2008-2009 Two Year Course in Portland, OR, and again in 2010-2011 when the course was held in the Seattle, WA area at which he served as NESH’s student rep. Since then he has been a frequent participant at our Advanced Clinical Classes for NESH alumni at our home base in Amherst, MA.
