Welcome to the Christensen Center for Whole Life Health
The Practice of Margaret Christensen, MD

Healthcare for
the Whole Woman

My focus is creating health, not just treating disease, by addressing the whole woman -- body, mind and spirit.

Using a comprehensive, functional medicine approach, I integrate the latest scientific medical research on bio-identical hormones, nutrition, and medicinal herbs along with attention to women’s psychology and spirituality.

Frustrated by the limitations of conventional medicine, a challenging personal journey has made me passionate about teaching women to create transformative healing for themselves.

My clients learn it’s ALL connected. Holistic hormone replacement therapy is not “alternative” medicine. It’s biochemistry at its best!
