Hello and welcome!
Dr. Danae Sunderman, B.S., D.C. Doula, Q.H.C.
My name is Dr. Danae. I am a young doctor, yes, but I have much more experience with how the body heals on a deep level than most doctors ever get to understand on a personal level.
At the age of 19, I underwent a series of events that put my body into an incredible amount of toxic load. This took me from who I was as a high-achieving, award-winning, leadership-role serving, friend-loving, perfectionist student to the point of crying often due to feeling like my brain was melting and not being able to find any doctors or professionals that had any answers as to what was going on. I was told numerous times that I would just have to deal with these debilitating symptoms for the rest of my life.
Over the course of my 7 year healing journey throughout undergrad and my doctorate program, I became desperate to heal and relentless in finding a way to not accept my diagnoses as my forever limitations.
During my years of already-intense schooling, I spent nearly every weekend driving or flying somewhere in the country to not only seek my own true healing, but also to seek a depth of understanding of the human body.
I knew that if it was possible for me to find deep and complete healing, that I would have the tools to be able to facilitate change in others lives on a level that is incomparable.
In the time I had sought healing, I had been diagnosed with two forms of Lyme Disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), Hashimotos, and a heavy metal toxicity that was over 15 times the allowable limit. ALL things and diagnoses that the world tells you and I was told that I would have to live with for the rest of my life. That they might get better, and that they might have times when they'd be worse, but that I'd constantly have to battle them. No wonder I felt the way I did, but it took 7 years to come to this conclusion.
I can tell you the biggest thing I've learned (so far, as learning is a continual, exciting journey through life) is that limitations, labels, and diagnoses DO NOT have to be a part of the rest of my life, OR the rest of YOUR life. Isn't that incredible?
My healing journey brought me to wholeness in mind, body, and spirit, where each and every one of those "life-long" diagnoses no longer has a hold of me.
I'm grateful that I was so sick, and I'm thankful that I have the ability to be able to share the tools that transformed my life with you.
I can't wait to join you on your own healing journey to help you become whole again too.
This office is not about me telling you what you have to do and when you have to do it. It's about respecting the wisdom of your body and empowering you through facilitation of your innate healing.
Your body has more intelligence inside of it than any doctor will ever have, including myself.
I'm here to tune-in, to listen, to empower, and to facilitate your deepest healing - when you are the most ready.
You will know when it is time, it is just a question of whether you are willing to listen to your body and be truest to yourself in following that timing of your intuition.
I'll be here, alongside of you, when you are ready.
Your Doctor, Your Advocate, and Your Friend,
