Holistic Health Practitioners | Carolinas Natural Health Center

Are you tired of taking expensive, dangerous medications or frustrated that your doctor only seems to have 15 minutes of time to spend with you when you go in for an illness or checkup?

You’re not alone…

The reality is that everyday people waste both precious time and money visiting conventional medical practices and often leave offices feeling hopeless or burdened.

That’s why, at Carolinas Natural Health Center, we do things differently.

Our expert holistic health practitioners provide whole-body healing through customized healthcare plans based on your unique health needs and wellness goals.

We treat the root cause of disease—not the symptoms—and will take the time to truly listen to you and help you put together a comprehensive program that will put you on the path to better health for the long run.

With the flexibility to see patients both in our office and virtually, receiving safe, comprehensive healthcare from wherever you are has never been easier.

We invite you to get to know our team, and then take the next step to becoming part of the Carolinas Natural Health Center family.

Dawn Armstrong

Dawn Armstrong oversees supplement ordering and fulfillment for the members of Carolinas Natural Health Center.

For years, Dawn was interested in health and nutrition. However, she came full circle with her interest in healthy eating when she realized that the modern health infrastructure couldn’t support the medical challenges her family faced. Dawn’s journey led her to Carolinas Natural Health Center, and she now empowers others to choose a better path to take control of their health.

Dawn graduated from UNC Charlotte with her degree in biology and earned her ASCP certificate in cytotechnology. Her strong medical background includes working in a global life sciences company and hospital. She also served as an instructor for CPCC’s cytotechnology program.

In her free time, Dawn enjoys attending live music events, hanging out with family and friends, and escaping to the beach.

Krista Sigmon

Krista Sigmon is a Certified Health Coach who supports our members throughout their programs with diet and lifestyle changes. She enjoys getting to know our members and helps them with meal planning and teaching various classes such as cooking classes, nutrition classes, smoothie classes, and more!

Seeing our members make changes and start to embrace a healthier lifestyle inspires Krista and motivates her everyday!

Krista had a unique upbringing as her parents owned several produce markets. This is where she developed a love for fresh fruits and vegetables at a young age. After having kids, she found herself reading and learning as much as she could about healthy cooking, ingredients and lifestyle.

That led her to the Institute of Integrative Nutrition where she received her health coach certification and she is thrilled that she did!

When not working, Krista loves spending time in the mountains, tubing and canoeing on the New River, swimming, reading, walking barefoot on the beach, and cooking and entertaining.
