Looking forward to working with you

About Your Doctor

As an outdoor enthusiast, I have a keen interest in understanding how to stay strong, fit and in shape through the natural wear and tear our bodies take. Through an investigative approach, I work closely with my patients to address the root cause of their health challenges, rather than simply treating the superficial symptoms. The natural solutions I provide are designed to give the body the necessary components to heal, regenerate and operate in peak form.

After becoming a patient of a naturopathic doctor in college, I discovered an approach to health that I never knew existed. I soon made plans to move to Seattle to immerse myself in the study of naturopathic medicine. There, I learned to kayak on the local rivers which kept me sane and in shape during the rigors of medical school.  I also learned about the unfortunate effects of Seasonal Affective Disorder. Those five years in the beautiful but wintry grey and gloom deepened my understanding of water, wilderness, and the necessary connection we must have with nature to get through darker times.

While I care for men, women, and children ages two to 102, I feel a strong calling to help men thrive as they age. I started a men’s group with whom I still meet after more than 10 years, and I also participate twice monthly in a men’s wilderness therapy group. These experiences give me a solid understanding of the strong bonds and particular challenges unique to men.

I have now been in practice for over two decades in the Grand Valley. I call it home and look forward to sharing my knowledge base as a guide on your new health journey.


"While allopathic doctors generally treat symptoms, a naturopath tends to be preventive in nature. They try and find the cause. I highly recommend Dr. Chris. Both my wife and myself – he’s our primary doctor. We go to him first."
"First visit was impressive. It was like he already knew what my problem was and tackled it, then and there, with prescribed diet changes and natural medicines to clean my body and start the process of repairing my body. I have greatly improved, and with each visit, he will diagnose and tweek my treatment plans and natural medicines. Dr. Lepisto is conscientious and very knowledgeable, and this has led me to getting on the road to recovery. I can see hope in my future."
"Dr. Lepisto listened carefully about the pain I am enduring in so many muscles in my body. Also, my problem getting restful sleep. I also have problems with depression. I am very impressed with Dr. Lepisto. He seemed genuinely interested in what the problems were and how to correct them. Didn't push me to take in an overflow of information at once. He is very informational. A very nice and helpful. And, I found him quite reasonably priced."
"I needed help with energy level. He fixed it. Do yourself a favor and go see him the next time you don’t feel well. You won’t regret it."
"After a discussion with Dr. Lepisto, he had me take a blood test to determine how I reacted to an array of food antigens. From the results, Dr. Lepisto made recommendations using natural supplements for me to take and dietary changes to my food intake. This approach worked and today I feel great. Along the way, Dr. Lepisto also helped me with my sleeping patterns and my anxiety levels. I greatly appreciate the help he gave me and I thank Dr. Lepisto."
"Having lost faith in traditional medical practices - as they often treat the symptoms with medications but seldom look at the underlying issues; I was looking for a doctor who would work with me to help me regain my health. Dr. Lepisto took the time to listen to me and my concerns about my health. He spent an hour a half with me on my first visit and sent me home with a treatment plan. I recommend Dr. Lepisto - to get healthy using natural remedies and products which help the body heal while addressing the underlying cause."
"I needed help with chronic sinus infections and possible surgery necessary. I've been seeking help for this condition for years, and with one visit, I feel Dr. Lepisto gave me hope that we will be able to, at the very least, reduce the number of infections but possibly eliminate them altogether."
"Dr. Christopher is a great to work with. I have used him for years to focus on my nutritional and support needs...naturally. It is extremely helpful to have him on my side when I am trying to sift through all the fad and false info we are bombarded with daily. Overall, he's a great asset in my health and wellness challenges."
"I am very happy with the outcome of my medical exam and the plan Dr. Lepisto outlined for me. I appreciate feeling like my concerns have been listened to and addressed, an unusual occurrence these days. Dr. Lepisto is a kind, caring doctor who provides common sense solutions and easy to follow instructions."
"We felt Dr Lepisto gave us information and direction based on a quality exam, diagnostics and discussion. We're impressed with his knowledge, manner, professionalism and principal. We would recommend Dr Lepisto to any one, and with high marks."

"Dr. Leptisto listened carefully to the concerns I had, asked several relevant questions, and worked with me to determine a good path forward to address those concerns. He suggested several supplements and dietary changes. A month later when I visited again, I was clearly progressing towards my health targets. We continue to work to monitor changes and progress, with my clear health goals now seemingly in reach."
