“I grew up in the mountains of western North Carolina. I spent much of my time playing in the woods around my house and at a young age, I was fascinated with wild places and my mother’s herb garden. I remember reading books on local plants and herbs from our local library, spending hours in the garden, and practicing how to use these plants. I dreamed that one day, I would be able to use them to heal people.
My journey to naturopathic medicine has made my childhood dream a reality. In addition to learning about plant-based medicines, in my medical training, I learned how to be a competent primary care provider and developed skills in the diagnosis and management of acute and chronic illness. Today, I use botanical medicine, nutrition, mind-body techniques, and exercise to help my clients achieve their health goals.”
Dr. Corn focuses on nutritional counseling with all his patients. He wants to change the way his patients view food and the way they view their bodies. From his perspective, food is fuel, and while we need the proper balance of nutrients for our bodies to work optimally, food is about more than just fueling our bodies. Food is also related to our cultures, our communities, our comfort, and our celebrations. Dr. Corn works with patients to incorporate all these aspects of food into their nutrition plans so they can learn to love healthy food and incorporate it into a balanced diet that is not restrictive. Outside the clinic, Dr. Corn enjoys hiking and camping in the great outdoors, exploring Vermont’s food scene, powerlifting, and playing with his Great Pyrenees, Judge.
