About Dr. Kelly Prill
Welcome to showing up. Welcome to committing to you. Welcome to being curious, ready and willing to create change and empowerment in your life.
I am Dr. Kelly Prill, and I wholeheartedly believe in your innate capacity to heal.
Within each of us resides a profound wisdom, waiting to be tapped into. My mission is to assist and empower you on the path of unlocking this inner wisdom.
Through the integration of energy work, the healing power of nature, and advancements in neurology, I provide guidance, tools, educational resources, and support for you to become your own source of healing. Reconnect with the natural world and embody your authentic truth.
With over 20 years of experience in medicine and an unyielding thirst for knowledge about the human experience (which I continue to nurture), I have come to recognize that optimal well-being is rooted in the health of the nervous system, emotional well-being, wholeness and a sense of community. These foundations are essential for experiencing life to the fullest.
Through my personal exploration, incorporating the realms of energy, nature, and neurology, I have discovered my own innate intelligence, intuition, and the root causes of my own struggles. This has allowed me to reclaim my liberation and experience profound healing. My goal is to assist you in remembering your true essence, leading a life of sovereignty and authenticity.
It is my passion and vision to create a new paradigm in medicine that integrates ancient and modern healing practices, embraces the holistic nature of our being, and paves the way for new pathways and visions of evolution and enrichment.
Now is the time to expand the horizons of medicine, bridging the gap between spirituality and science, and restoring the focus on individual and community healing.
Together, let us embark on this transformative journey and redefine what it means to truly thrive.
My medicine journey...
My journey into the field of medicine began in my 20s when I found myself feeling lost and yearning for something more.
This led me to relocate to Portland and enroll in massage school at East West College of Healing Arts. During my time there, I was introduced to naturopathic medicine, and I became captivated by its principles. Motivated by this newfound passion, I pursued a bachelor’s degree in health sciences and immediately enrolled at the National University of Natural Medicine.
Discovering a different approach to health was exhilarating, and I spent four years immersing myself in the various modalities of natural medicine, such as herbalism, homeopathy, nature cure, and physical manipulation. Most importantly, I loved delving into the intricacies of the human body and treating people by understanding the physiology of cells, organs, and systems.
After graduating from NUNM, I worked as a primary care doctor for several years. While most of my patients experienced improvement, there was a small percentage that didn’t respond as expected, prompting me to seek answers.
Through this quest, I realized that the missing piece in my practice was the nervous system. I had been focusing solely on treating patients from the neck down, overlooking the vital role the brain plays in overall health.
To fill this knowledge gap, I dedicated the following years to pursuing post-doctorate studies in functional neurology. I earned my Diplomate from the American Chiropractic Neurology Board and had the privilege of learning from exceptional chiropractic physicians. This blending of clinical neuroscience with naturopathic medicine harmonized my passion for physiology, nature, and neurology. However, one more element remained to complete my trifecta of medicine: energy.
The journey to today...
In conventional medical settings, energy and emotional health are often overlooked, despite being underlying factors in many physical symptoms. Energy is not a mystical concept but an essential component of our existence—a fact supported by scientific research that has yet to be fully embraced by the medical community. The energy we give and receive daily significantly impacts our well-being.
Recognizing the transformative power of energy, I delved deeper into this realm and incorporated breathwork as an integral part of my treatment protocols. Breathwork provides a readily accessible and powerful means to shift and transform our emotional state. I found it immensely empowering and instrumental in my own healing.
In my pursuit of knowledge in this field, I was guided to become a psilocybin facilitator, even though it took me out of my comfort zone. Graduating from InnerTrek opened my eyes to the profound potential of plant medicine and the innate wisdom that connects self and the greater world. Psilocybin acts as a catalyst for deep transformative healing and has been extensively researched, demonstrating remarkable effects on mental health and everyday vitality. Learn more here.
While my thirst for wisdom remains unquenchable, I have discovered that integrating energy, nature, and neurology creates a holistic paradigm for alchemizing and transmuting pain, trauma, and physical ailments. Moreover, it establishes a solid foundation for genuine empowerment, joy, and prosperity.
While my pursuit of wisdom will continue, I have discovered that energy, nature and neurology create a whole health paradigm to alchemize and transmute pain, trauma and physical ailments, as well as establish a foundation for true empowerment, joy and prosperity.
My guiding purpose...
Personally, I am deeply in love with life, including its shadow aspects. My inner work has opened up a whole new world and way of living, and I am committed to embracing each moment to its fullest.
Integrity, sovereignty, and growth are among my core values. I find immense joy in exploring, laughing, and nurturing my two beautiful little boys.
Outside of work, I find balance and happiness in immersing myself in nature. You can often find me in the mountains, near water, or engaged in heartfelt conversations with the trees.
Community is my anchor, and I am grateful to be surrounded by amazing creators and way-showers who, like me, are committed to making positive changes in the world.
I am actively working to shift the medical paradigm by promoting the recognition of food as medicine, raising awareness about the power of diversity in ecosystems, embracing the concept of whole health, advocating for the use of psychedelics as medicine, and honoring rites of passage throughout life.
