Greetings! My name is Naika Apeakorang and I am Naturopathic Doctor, Acupuncturist, & Herbalist based in Brooklyn, New York. 
I am a native New Yorker, with cultural roots in Haiti and Ghana, and a passion for global health. In 2011, I received my B.A in Anthropology from Brown University. I graduated from Bastyr University, the world’s leading academic institution in the natural healing arts, in June 2017. My five years of training was a delicate balance of clinical sciences (Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology, Biochemistry, etc.) and the holistic healing arts (Botanical medicine, Nutrition, Acupuncture, etc.). It is with this delicate balance that I address a variety of health concerns, aiming to heal the root cause of diseases while helping my clients feel better. I enjoy working with clients on a wide variety of issues, with specific interests in endocrine health, mind-body medicine, and gastro-intestinal health. My favorite healing tools include Herbal medicine, Acupuncture, Homeopathy, and Counseling, to name a few.

I started my blog, "Naika in Balance" in 2012 with the intention of exploring holistic health, in all its various forms, and sharing that information with you all. Since launching my blog, I have transformed "Naika in Balance" into my entire brand and my professional website. Now that I am Naturopathic doctor and Acupuncturist, my aim is to help you find balance too.

 I am very passionate about community health and education, and have pioneered the term "creative doctoring". Creative doctoring to me, means engaging with community beyond the clinic encounter, through various avenues such as educational workshops, group sessions, lectures, and more. You can regularly find me in the community doing exactly this, so I invite you to explore the Events tab to learn about them.

When I am not working with clients, I enjoy spending time outdoors in nature, traveling, writing, and improving my yoga, and Afro-Caribbean dance skills!

Thanks for visiting my website! Please feel free to contact me to begin working together!

In health,
Dr. Naika
