Owner

 

It is my mission to bring you a truly integrative hybrid experience at Elements Integrative Wellness Center, both in-person and on-line. It is important that my staff work as a team with you in the lead and directing your wellness journey. We want to teach you to be the champion of your own health.


I was born and raised a Wyomingite. I love people, being outside in the sun, boating, camping, paddle boarding and most recently golf lessons. I have been in the medical field for over 25 years in the areas of gynecology, emergency medicine, and Hospice Care. I studied at Bryant and Stratton College as well as American Academy of Grief, and Western Wyoming Community College. I ended my journey in Health Care Administration with several certifications in Centering Health Care and Grief Education. I am licensed in reflexology and foot zone therapy, and I am a master level mindfulness and meditation instructor.  I am looking forward to helping you navigate your journey to wellness.

Carol Iverson 
Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine

 

Carol Iverson was born in NYC, raised on Long Island, NY.  She got her engineering degree from Duke University in North Carolina, worked briefly for Newport News Shipbuilding & Dry Dock Company in Virginia before moving to Wyoming where she worked for PacifiCorp’s Dave Johnston and Jim Bridger power plants for a little over 30 years as a project engineer.  Carol was never a big fan of conventional medicine and so was on the look-out for alternatives whenever health issues came around.  

Carol and her husband had a cat who developed asthma.  Not knowing any other choices, her cat was treated with steroids (the conventional treatment).  In time, the steroids compromised the cat’s pancreas leading to diabetes. When the cat’s diabetes could not be brought into control with conventional treatment, Carol did some research and learned cats were obligate carnivores meaning, they are meant to only eat meat.  She and her husband switched the cat to an all meat, raw meat diet. Within 2 months the diabetes was gone and the asthma was in remission.  

Also during this time, Carol experienced a stroke as a complication from then undiagnosed atrial fibrillation; which thrust her into the conventional medical system.  The experience was most unpleasant. Fortunately, she came through the experience mostly unscathed; which she believed was a gift to be made use of. Upon reflecting on her experience and after seeing the success in treating her cat, Carol wanted to learn more about treating human conditions with diet.  So she went back to school and completed her doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, AZ. She is now ready to help others find their path and explore their options in their healing journeys.

My name is Kailyn and I am born and raised in Wyoming. I have been practicing yoga off and on for the last 15 years. I received my 200 yoga teacher training from Seek yoga in Laramie last year. 

 

I am currently going to school to be a Counselor with a concentration in Interpersonal Neurobiology from Southwestern College. I love studying the brain and finding ways to help heal the damage caused by trauma which I incorporate this love into my practice. I specialize in trauma yoga which means I incorporate modalities into the practice that disengages the fight or flight response, creates a space so the client feels safe and secure in their bodies, and calm the nervous system. Yoga is so much more than just movement to me, it's an incredible modality that does so much healing for the nervous system, body, and mind. I can't wait to share my practice with this community.
