For the 72nd week of "7 QUESTION SUNDAY" we shine the spotlight on another influential individual from the PNW, Dr. Jannine Krause!
4EVRGRN: Hey, JK! Tell us a little about yourself.
JK: I'm Jannine Krause - a Naturopathic Doctor, Acupuncturist & Host of The Health Fix Podcast. I grew up in Illinois, transplanted to the PNW when I was 21 to go to Bastyr, had a brief stint in Breckenridge, Colorado as a ski bum & missed the beauty of the PNW so here I am to stay. I can be found in my office Q Vitality Studio in Tacoma or online helping folks’ sleuth out their health issues, relieve pain, destress & bio hack their way to optimal health.
When not in my office I can be found experimenting with new recipes in my kitchen, buried in a book, or on an adventure hiking, biking, paddle boarding or skiing in the PNW with my dog & hubby.
What’s a unique health need of people living in the PNW?
JK: Pretty much everyone is deficient in vitamin D! We all need happy lights and vitamin D shots!
Favorite PNW artist?
JK: Michelle Yamamoto
Is there anything people in the PNW do you refuse to?
JK: Eat mussels - my Midwest born self just can't do it!
What do you enjoy most about your work?
JK: Witnessing patients transform their health & being able to see patients come in stressed out and leave super chill after acupuncture!
One thing you know about the PNW other people might not?
JK: The PNW climate allows for you to grow an herbal apothecary in your back yard for pretty much almost anything that ails you.
Best meal in the PNW?
JK: Everything at Over the Moon Cafe
What is your favorite local product?
