    Dr. Dennis Godby, ND, is a California-licensed primary care naturopathic doctor. He earned his medical degree from the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon. Dr. Godby is the founder and director of the midtown-located Sacramento Naturopathic Medical Center.

    "My goal as a naturopathic doctor and teacher is to assist patients in living to their fullest potential, physically, psychologically, emotionally and spiritually. Preventing illness is the ultimate goal in naturopathy. However, when a person becomes out of balance and has a "dis-ease," the first principle of naturopathic doctors is to do no harm - to utilize the most natural, non-toxic, and the least invasive therapies first. Another high priority for an ND is finding the underlying cause(s) of illness, not merely treating symptoms, therefore, hundreds of diagnostic and functional medicine labs are available to help diagnose."

    Dr. Godby also holds a Bachelor of Science in exercise physiology and nutrition. After receiving his M.A. in Theological Studies in 1990, Dr. Godby taught social justice and non-violence at the high school level for seven years, and has been a community activist since 1981.
