Meet Dr. Huckaby

“My life is my message.”
– Mahatma Gandhi
I grew up in West Texas and always knew I wanted to be a doctor. I received my Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Chemistry from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, TX. There, I also completed my pre-med coursework with plans of attending allopathic medical school soon after graduation.
During college, however, my health gradually plummeted without any answers from conventional medicine until I progressed enough to be given a diagnosis. I was given no options for healing. With hope stripped away, I decided to abandon relying on doctors for my own health even though I was still pursuing medicine for my career. Knowing no other option but determined to achieve my goals in life, I decided to power through despite my health.
With a twist of fate, however, I discovered Integrative Medicine and Naturopathic Medicine eventually found me. My health, path and life was forever changed and I have been completely consumed with passion and respect for the most beautiful, honest and life-giving medicine I have found.
I attended medical school at Bastyr University California in San Diego where I obtained my Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine. During this time, I healed from multiple autoimmune conditions and mold illness through drastically changing and reconstructing my lifestyle, and utilizing and living the medicine I was studying.
My approach to healing is based off of this humbling and life changing experience. I know how it feels to look 'fine' but barely have enough energy to wake up in the mornings. I know the feeling of complete hopelessness and overwhelming fear. I know what it feels like to constantly fight and push through despite depletion. I know how it feels to do the work and to choose healing over and over again even when you don't see tangible changes.
I also know what it feels like to have hope restored, to overcome illness and to experience life in a way that was previously unimaginable. I know what it takes to get there and I am beyond passionate and absolutely certain about my medicine. I choose it daily, live it fully and love getting the opportunity to share it with my patients.
I feel like my primary role as a doctor is leading and educating my patients on how to not only prevent disease and disorder but also to regain their health so that they can live their best life. My goal is to help each individual obtain optimal health so that they are able to live out their purpose and enjoy life to the fullest without relying on any medication, supplement or practitioner.
It is my sincerest desire to use my own healing journey to help change your life. I can truly say that it was the best thing that ever happened to me and that it is so fulfilling and worth it to use grit, do the work and let your life become your medicine.
