Dr. Banaian has extensive training in Functional medicine, Nutritional psychiatry, endocrinology, acupuncture, nutrition, and botanical medicine. She focuses on diabetes management, thyroid disease, hormone replacement therapy, endurance immune system, weight loss protocols, allergy and immune diseases along with treating other health concerns.

She was in private practice overseas for 11 years after she received her medical doctorate (MD) from Medical University of Tehran. While practicing medicine as an MD, she was mesmerized with the philosophy of homeopathy and was introducing her patients to the successes of homeopathy.  She noticed that treating conditions by suppressing symptoms is not what she wanted to do as a health provider. She developed a passion for true healing of the root cause and became committed to finding answers for not only herself and her family, but for society at large. She moved to the US in 2004. Her enthusiasm toward helping her patient with curing of the root cause motivated her to to pursue her 4 year Naturopathic Medicine Doctorate (NMD) from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine.

She sought natural medicine for her own and her family’s health. She treated her early age pre-diabetic condition by natural medicine.  When her 16 years old son was diagnosed with hypothyroidism ( Hashimoto`s), the correct diet for him resolved his condition and his thyroid hormone indexes converted to normal ranges without any medications.

She believes that practicing naturopathy is both a challenge and a delight. The challenge is to keep up with the growing research and scientific information and the delight is to practice compassion on daily basis.

In her free time, Dr. Banaian, enjoys spending time in nature with her family, traveling, hiking, gardening, and swimming.
