Rachel Alioto, Naturopathic Doctor
Dr. Rachel always knew that she wanted to be a doctor, but throughout high school and college she struggled with severe stomachaches and weight loss. Despite numerous different tests, her medical doctor could not figure out what was wrong. Six years later she reached rock bottom and knew something needed to change. Through her health journey, she was inspired to find a more individualized and holistic way of healing which led her to naturopathic medicine. She decided to become a Naturopathic Doctor, which soon became her passion.
Dr. Rachel grew up in Northern California with her parents and older sister. She played volleyball and was a swimmer in high school which lead her to be interested in athletics and staying healthy. Dr. Rachel attended the University of Minnesota where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Nutritional Science and a minor in Spanish.
She attended one of the seven accredited naturopathic medical schools, National University of Health Sciences In Illinois. There, she spent 3 years in classes and 1 year in clinicals interning in both Illinois and California. She is board-certified and licensed in the state of Minnesota.
Dr. Rachel takes the time to listen and understand each patient’s unique condition in order to create a personalized treatment plan. Her goal is to heal, teach and inspire each person to be an advocate for his or her own health. Treatments are designed to address the whole body and stimulate the body’s self-healing processes to allow for the body, mind and spirit to attain balance and heal.
Dr. Rachel looks forward to helping you find a balance in your life by providing naturopathic care. Dr. Rachel will be in our Edina location on Wednesdays and Fridays.
