Jason Kinley, ND

My name is Jason Kinley and do I have a true story for you. My journey began in Ohio where I was born. I was often ill and over-medicated. Moving around a lot as a child and having resided in the states of Ohio, Georgia, Michigan, Montana, and Washington, over-medication was always a concern. Very active as a child, I played sports including baseball, soccer, racing motorcycles and bicycles, track, and hockey. I still had my own health challenges, but I just went along without anyone really listening to my story. One day my life changed, I had a car wreck and a traumatic brain injury also known as a TBI. During the process of healing, I started to seek other options for my health care finding adjunctive care with a Naturopathic doctor. During my healing I got married and had my first two children. After seeing how naturopathic medicine helped me, my wife encouraged me to become a Naturopath and during the process we had four more children. So yes, we have a loving household with six wonderful children. I love to walk with my patients on their individual journeys, wherever their paths may lead. I am able to use physical medicine for those bumps in the road, guidance when the road forks, food, herbs, and sometimes medication when the body needs a little help. Now that you have read some of my story, I would love to hear yours.

Gail Littell, ND, CMT

Gail Littell was first introduced to naturopathic medicine in 1978 while living in Arizona and attending massage therapy school. It was love at first introduction; naturopathic medicine brought together her myriad interests and offered a never-ending source of engagement for her insatiable curiosity regarding all things natural. However, her entry into a formal naturopathic program was delayed by an almost exact 30 years while she reared and home-schooled her 3 children, practiced massage therapy part-time and then operated a certified organic farm after her two older children (twins) left home. Many years later, when her youngest son had spread his wings, she left her beloved country life for life in the largest city in Canada, Toronto, in order to attend naturopathic school.

Gail graduated from The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto, Ontario in 2013 and promptly returned to the hills and hollers of southern Indiana. She currently serves as the INANP secretary (Indiana Association of Naturopathic Physicians) and holds a naturopathic license in Vermont. She maintains a private practice in Salem, Indiana and dreams of establishing a seasonal residential clinic at her farm where she will be able to more fully incorporate Nature Cure and her Vitalistic approach to health and healing. Gail is the mother of 3 and a “Grandmom” to 10; her precious gifts from God.
