I have spent my entire adult life learning how to be well and then doing it.

Jessie Keener is a Naturopath (N.D.) who has specialized in mind/body medicine for the past 29 years. Her passion is empowering patients to gain the knowledge and wisdom about their own bodies so that they can thrive.
She began as a very sick patient in her early 20�s, fresh out of Mount Holyoke College in 1979. Floundering in the medical model with no answers for years, she finally met a special mentor, Theresa Dale, M.D. *, a clinical nutritionist who revealed to her the exciting field of natural medicine. Over 2.5 years, Jessie worked with Dr. Dale on healing her body, which involved extensive detoxification, chelation therapy for heavy metals, hormone balancing, etc. She literally reversed her osteoarthritis and premature menopause. It was during this time that Jessie found her calling: natural healing.
After receiving her degree in Naturopathy from Clayton University, Jessie began her private practice in Austin, Texas. She co-founded The Healthy Practice in 1990, a multidisciplinary holistic center with 13 health professionals: acupuncture, massage, chiropractic, rolfing, psychotherapy and holistic medicine. At the time, it was the largest facility of its type in the state of Texas.
Always passionate about public education, Jessie Keener also created her own TV health talk show, To Your Health, which featured holistic /alternative practitioners, workshop leaders and published writers in the field. It was a huge success, and stayed in re-runs for years.
In 2006 Jessie relocated to Ft. Lauderdale, FL, and opened her healing practice. She expanded her practice to include high-end stress management and brain training through scientific breath work. Convinced that stress and the physical consequences of it are a major threat to health, she has become an expert in personal growth, human potential and longevity.
Jessie is thrilled to join the team at Maximum Wellness and link arms with other cutting-edge health professional dedicated to the whole person and their unique needs. One of her favorite sayings is �It takes a village to heal an adult!� and the skills available at the center are, in her mind, second to none.
Jessie Keener is available by appointment Wednesday and Friday afternoons.
*Dr. Dale recently founded The California College of Natural Medicine.
