Biography

Dr. Todd A. Born is a naturopathic doctor, medical director, and co-owner with his wife, Dr. Lindsay Jones-Born, of Born Naturopathic Associates, Inc., in Alameda, California. Previously they were in private practice in Avon, Connecticut. Before moving to Connecticut from Seattle, Dr. Born completed 415 hours precepting with other healthcare providers—including DCs, DPMs, NDs, and MDs—in the areas of geriatric medicine, family medicine, cardiology, urology, men’s health, physical medicine, and emergency medicine at Evergreen Hospital Emergency Department. During his residency his integrative medicine expertise was further honed with rotations in Virginia Mason Hospital’s department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Spine Clinic, Swedish Family Medicine’s department of Integrative Medicine, and Harborview Medical Center’s Emergency Department. Dr. Born also volunteered as an attending physician for the Alternative Healthcare Access Campaign (AHAC), which serves indigent populations. Past accomplishments include the Bastyr University Graduate Fund Scholarship; a venture grant to the British College of Osteopathic Medicine in London; and the Outstanding Teaching Award from Hess Educational Organization in Taichung City, Taiwan. He was a volunteer at North Country Community Health Center in Flagstaff, Arizona and research assistant for Alan R. Gaby, MD. Dr. Born’s clinical focus is utilizing integrative medicine to treat chronic disease. He has a strong interest in difficult and refractory cases, gastrointestinal issues, neurological and neurodegenerative disorders, endocrinology, cardiovascular disease and diabetes, autoimmune disease, ADHD, Autsim, HIV/AIDS, and geriatrics. He has extensive knowledge and training in the basic medical sciences, physical medicine (osseous manipulation, craniosacral therapy, hydrotherapy and physiotherapy), botanical medicine, homeopathy, biotherapeutic drainage, Ayurveda, counseling, and diet and nutrient therapies. Dr. Born believes that ultimately we are all responsible for our own health and well-being, but at times we need some guidance to get back on the road to optimal health. He pledges to work with you and your other healthcare practitioners to help you achieve that goal. Dr. Born earned a BS in biology, with an emphasis in human physiology and functional morphology, from Northern Arizona University and his Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (ND) from Bastyr University. He also completed a semester abroad at the School of Science and Technology, University of Waikato, Hamilton, New Zealand. He has advanced training and certification in homeopathy, completing an 18-month course at the New England School of Homeopathy. He is a member of American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP), California Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND), Bay Area Homeopathy Association (BAHA), Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine (AIHM) and the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM). Dr. Born is also the Product Manager, Director of New Product Development and Scientific Advisor for Allergy Research Group, LLC. He is also a Thought Leader for the UK-based Clinical Education, a free peer-to-peer service that offers clinicians a closed forum to ask clinical questions and receive evidence-based responses by experts in their fields. When he’s not working, Dr. Born enjoys spending time with his wife & son, being in the great outdoors, reading, writing, traveling, and playing with his three rescued Persian cats.
