Dr. Krista Brayko

Dr. Brayko received her Naturopathic Doctorate degree from Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington. Following medical school, she completed a two-year residency at the Yellowstone Naturopathic Clinic (YNC) in Billings, Montana. After completing her residency, Dr. Brayko continued at YNC as an associate physician and with her colleagues developed an Alternative Pain Clinic. In 2014 she founded Omni Natural Health Clinic in Missoula, where she practiced a few years before moving her practice to Portland, Oregon. She’s thrilled to be back in her home state and collaborating with a group of talented doctors and healers at Natura Health and Wellness.

Prior to attending naturopathic medical school, Dr. Brayko graduated magna cum laude with a Master’s Degree in Architecture and practiced extensively in Montana and California. It was then that she discovered biomimetics, a science that studies nature’s models and then applies these designs and processes to solve issues of the human body. While exploring the complex systems and structures of the human body, she became hooked. Dr. Brayko continues to look to nature as a teacher, as an inspiration, and as a “design solution” to bring us closer to optimal health. She loves all things nature and when not in the office she can be found adventuring in it.
