Board of Advisors for Hashimoto’s Awareness

Dr. Natasha Fallahi, DC is a Doctor, Designer, Speaker and Artist. She specializes in healing autoimmunity through integrative chiropractic, functional neurology, functional medicine, nutrition, homeopathy and narrative medicine. She is founder of The KANARI Project, a narrative approach that offers natural, holistic care for autoimmunity and co-founder of KOBA Family Wellness Center a private practice in Berkeley, CA. She also serves on the Board of Advisors for Hashimoto’s Awareness, a 501(c)(3) non-profit committed to raising awareness of the auto-immune disease, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, connecting people to proper testing for early diagnosis through education, advocacy and advancing research.

Chiropractic, nutrition, homeopathy and functional neurology changed Dr. Fallahi’s Life. Her path to KOBA has spanned a decade of healing, learning and teaching around the world. She is passionate about helping adults and children achieve their highest potential in health and wellness – physical, metabolic, emotional and energetic. She specializes in Holistic Care and BioEnergetic Medicine for Autoimmunity.  She loves sharing holistic health with intuitive individuals, couples and growing families (and dogs and horses, too!) Past lives include graphic designer, marketing guru, creative director, indie filmmaker, entrepreneur, gypsy.

Like many of the people she provides care for, Dr. Fallahi also struggled for many years with “unexplainable” health issues: chronic fatigue, vague pain, low energy, hormonal imbalance, acne, anxiety and depression. Unbeknownst to her, she was experiencing the all-to-common story of mismanaged autoimmunity. She fell into the dark and confusing waters of navigating her symptoms through modern healthcare. Thankfully and serendipitously, she found herself in the hands of an integrative chiropractor. The focus shifted from the symptoms to the root cause. From there, her healing journey began and she reclaimed her life through chiropractic healing practices, functional medicine and functional neurology. Still to this day, she receives regular chiropractic care and adjunctive therapies. Everyday, she feels more alive and connected than the day before.
