Our Core Values Of Care

An Integrative Approach

Rooted in our focus on participatory patient care, it’s our mission to empower you with the knowledge and collective wisdom to create health for yourself, no matter where you are right now with our expert guidance.

Guided step-by-step by Dr. Youngblood, you will embark on an integrative approach to your wellness, drawing from the best of both Eastern and Western medicine, including smart lifestyle modifications that will significantly improve your health and alleviate symptoms.


Dedicated Attention

You’ll receive dedicated attention from our care team, including Dr. Youngblood, acupuncturists, health coaches and nutritionists.

During your exploratory consultation, you will review the course of care with Dr. Youngblood, and learn how our approach differs dramatically from conventional, routine forms of healthcare that rarely deals with root cause of illness.

The subsequent treatment will be charted by our care team based on your individual needs, which are very unique, case-by-case for each patient.

Personalized Care

No patient is exactly the same, and yet there are many factors that affect your health from lifestyle to environment and diet and even mindset. Guided by Dr. Youngblood, we will get to the root cause of your disease – using diagnostic tests and other assessment tools that your current doctor is mostly likely unfamiliar with.

Our care is so effective because we focus on dealing with the catalyst of illnesses including toxicity in the home and work-place, potential food intolerances and allergies, food as medicine, the role of hormone and even mindset that can all determine how healthy you are to date.

Innovative Treatments

Did you know that it takes on average 17 years for clinical breakthroughs to make their way into the standard of care? At Youngblood International , our entire team is deeply committed to shortening that lag.

Dr. Youngblood is a life-long learner, continuously upgrading her knowledge through sharing best practices and seeking out innovative, out-of-the-box ideas to help our patients achieve their health goals.


Root Cause Resolution

Unlike traditional doctors, our care team always focuses on root cause resolution – isolating the key imbalance or imbalances that are responsible for virtually all symptoms you’re experiencing right now.

Also known as functional medicine, we seek to give you solutions for illness instead of covering up the symptoms by using medications that also create more issues with harmful side effects. The key is to rebalance your body so it can heal naturally and safely heal.

Co-Creating Health

Changing your lifestyle may seem daunting but we have discovered that using the power of community is one of the most effective ways to support you during your health transformation and beyond.

We leverage group structures for patient education, peer-to-peer support, and accountability – with both your care team and your fellow patients rooting for your success. We also harness the support of on-line communities to give you support remotely, as your make important changes that translate into lasting health.

About Dr. Valerie Youngblood

Dr. Valerie Youngblood graduated from Michigan State University College of Human Medicine and went on to complete her residency in Internal Medicine.  Her desire to help and heal has been driven by an innate spiritual imperative to serve and as she paid her dues in developing integrity and earning respect from her peers and patients, she realized that for all her training, true wellness, true health comes from within.  This lit a fire within her and she went on to become trained in Iyengar yoga, TM, Lifestyle Medicine, Aesthetic Medicine and more recently, the Bredesen Recode Protocol.  Further, she became certified in Integrative Medicine and is now having completed her studies in Functional Medicine, a candidate for certification via the Institute of Functional Medicine.   

What gives her the most joy is seeing another person wake up and realize the power within themselves.  Realizing that their body may be out of balance, but who they really are is not.  She sees her role as the remover of imbalances, so that the person can shine thru in mind, body and spirit to go on to realize the sheer blessing of this gift of life.
