Dr. Natalie Geary is the founder of vedaHEALTH and vedaPURE. Her practice integrates pediatric care, family healthcare, and Ayurvedic healing. She bases her care on the appreciation that the mind and the body are inextricably connected, and that the whole person must be attended to for healing. From conventional medicine she incorporates the teachings of disease-based medicine. From Ayurveda she practices the theory that nutrition and digestion are the basis of health. Collectively, her practice focuses on inflammation and immune strength as the source of imbalance, and the focus of healing. Attainable changes that support Sustainable Wellness.

Dr. Natalie Geary is the founder, owner, and medical director of vedaHEALTH.
She received her bachelor’s degree in Medical Anthropology at Harvard University, and began her formal study of Ayurvedic Medicine. Dr. Geary attended Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and then completed her residency at NYU/Bellevue Hospital Center. She founded a non-profit, Mobile Pediatrics, to provide medical care to school children across northern New Mexico, and subsequently opened her own private practice in her hometown of NYC. Dr. Geary has also done global consulting work in Haiti, Indonesia, Thailand, and Malawi.

In 2009, Dr. Geary accepted a position as Director of Executive Medicine at the University of Miami School of Medicine and went on to become the hospital’s Director of International Health and the Chief Patient Experience Officer. After more than five years of senior hospital management, she chose to return to primary care and established vedaHEALTH: “Wellness as a focus of healing is still relatively new in this culture, this country. In the '60s, when a definitive connection between lung cancer and smoking emerged, there was a shift from, ‘I am fine I will go to the doctor if I get sick’ to ‘I am fine and if I want to keep being fine, I better start looking out for myself’. But that shift in focus onto prevention was still not a shift to active wellness. Wellness is an active state of being, motivated by a commitment to betterment not driven by fear. And now, as we continue to evolve in our understanding, the next step is embracing the whole of wellness - the mind and the body and the spirit - the individual within the context of community and culture".
