Meet Dr. Ashton Perroni
Dr. Ashton Perroni is the owner, medical director and primary Naturopathic Doctor at Thyme. She is a Board Licensed Naturopathic Doctor and graduate from Bastyr University California. Dr. Perroni knew since she was a child that she wanted to be a doctor but discovered during college that she didn’t agree with the typical paradigm of western medicine. In her search for something that resonated more with her values and ideals she discovered Naturopathic medicine, immediately switched paths, and never turned back.
She wholeheartedly believes in the integration of mind, body, and spirit with the goal of stimulating each individual’s ability to bring the whole back into harmony. She is passionate about educating women on how to take an active role in their journey to health and making sure that each patient is fully informed on all of their options in terms of treatment and management of their condition. Dr. Perroni specializes in hormonal imbalances for both men and women, including but not limited to thyroid disorders; hyperthyroid, hypothyroid, Hashimoto’s and Grave’s, low testosterone, irregular menstrual cycles, PMS, PCOS, menopause, and fertility. She also works with patients on stress management, insomnia, headaches/ migraines, all varieties of digestive disorders and food sensitivities, nutritional deficiencies, joint pain and musculoskeletal trauma.
Dr. Perroni is trained in several naturopathic modalities and spends quality time with each patient to educate and tailor treatment plans to individual needs. She strongly believes in the naturopathic principles of always starting with the least invasive treatment options by removing obstacles to cure and utilizing the healing power of nature using herbs, supplements, food as medicine and lifestyle modifications. However, she also utilizes craniosacral therapy, IV therapy, prolotherapy and platelet rich plasma for the face and joints to help jumpstart the immune system and healing processes when necessary.
She lives in San Francisco with her new husband but is very excited to be commuting to Pacifica to get closer to the ocean and serve a smaller, more quaint community.
