Patti Bartsch, MA, PhD
Owner, Traditional Naturopath
Patti Bartsch, MA, PhD fell in love with biology in 7th grade when she learned about the skeletal system. A few years later she entered a special program where she studied Animal Science beginning in 10th grade. She went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science, a master’s degree in biology and two doctorates; one in Natural Health and Wellness and one in Animal Naturopathy. She is passionate about natural health and wellness for both humans and animals.
Unique for someone in the natural health field, Dr. Bartsch spent nearly eight years in the biotechnology industry conducting oncology and pharmacology research. She talks about how when she started in the field, they were looking for a cure for cancer but by the time she left the industry they were no longer looking for a cure; they were looking for a drug that would keep your cancer from growing and spreading so you would need to take that drug for the rest of your life or your cancer would spread. She left that career for a position as an Animal Nutritionist specializing in equine nutrition and she went on to become a high school teacher and department head for biotechnology and animal science departments at two schools in Massachusetts.
Patti founded Naturally Unbridled Wellness in 2009 and, when she relocated to southeastern Minnesota during the summer of 2011, she opened a location in Onalaska, WI and works full time supporting clients in naturally achieving their wellness goals. Considered a “Traditional Naturopath”, Patti educates and empowers her clients to regain balance of body, mind, and spirit. Her consultations, therapies, and suggestions are not intended to replace medical care and she encourages her clients to work closely with their physicians when making wellness choices.
Aromatherapy, Homeopathy, Biofeedback, and Nutrition are just some of the areas where Patti supports her clients. She has also written two books on natural health: 7 Steps to a Naturally Unbridled Life — An Introduction to Holistic Living: Body, Mind, Spirit and Planet is her signature book while 100 Days, 100 Ways to a Happier, Healthier Life is her fun, tips book. She also offers a home study course and a holistic nutrition email subscription program. Dr. Bartsch is also an adjunct professor in Clinical Nutrition and Natural Animal Health at Kingdom College of Natural Health.
Patti serves on the Board of Directors of the American Council of Holistic Medicine and is a Charter Member of the International Association of Wellness Professionals. Locally, she is a member of the La Crosse Area Chamber of Commerce and the Women’s Alliance of La Crosse. She speaks locally and nationally on wellness topics and mentors wellness practitioners and caregivers in a variety of areas related to holistic health.
An avid equestrian, animal lover and whole foods connoisseur, Patti enjoys spending her free time with her husband Cory and their animals on their hobby farm in southeast, Minnesota.
