Thank you for visiting the natural medicine practice of Dr. Minna Yoon, N.D., L.Ac. Dr. Yoon is proud to be a naturopathic and acupuncture doctor at Bay Natural Medicine, providing natural health services to the greater San Francisco, California area. Having suffered from her own share of bothersome health complaints, including allergies, frequent headaches, and eczema, Dr. Yoon is familiar with the limitations of modern pharmaceuticals.
She realized that, while medications were able to provide temporary relief from an ailment, they were severely lacking in their ability to offer a long-term solution that not only alleviates symptoms but also reversed them. Through her own journey to health, she has come to understand how natural medicine— working alone or when combined with pharmaceuticals — can accomplish just that.
Dr. Yoon’s interest in natural medicine was born during her pre-med studies at Washington University in St. Louis. From there, she earned a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University, and also earned a Master of Science of Traditional Oriental Medicine from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego. In addition to her foundational education in natural medicine, Dr. Yoon continues to expand her knowledge and application in the field by obtaining certifications for Traditional Chinese Medicine in Dermatology and Restorative Medicine.
In addition to her extensive educational background, Dr. Yoon serves as a proud member and former legislative chair of the California Naturopathic Doctors Association (CNDA). She was awarded the distinction of Doctor of the Year by the CNDA in 2013. In July of 2018, Dr. Yoon was appointed by Governor Jerry Brown to the Naturopathic Medicine Committee serving the public and licensed naturopathic doctors by promoting and enforcing laws and regulations that protect the health and safety of Californians, ensuring access to high quality naturopathic medical care.
Dr. Minna Yoon, Naturopathic Doctor and Licensed Acupuncturist at Bay Natural Medicine of San Francisco, CA, uses her knowledge of both traditional and state-of-the-art therapeutic methods to help her clients reach their ultimate wellness potential.
