Dr. Taylor has been integrating Functional Medicine into her Chinese Medicine practice for close to 10 years with huge success.

Testimonials from Dr. Katania’s Patients
One of the most frustrating parts about Endometriosis is that doctors are often very dismissive of symptoms and they often do not believe the symptoms could even be part of the disease. Dr. Taylor has been so amazing in helping me sort through my symptoms and struggles with Endo. She is compassionate and really listens to the types of issues I have and she helps me work out how they may be aligned with my cycle and what we can do to address them. The acupuncture is amazing for pain relief and GI relief, and it brings me a great deal of anxiety relief also. The supplements she prescribes for me have been a huge game changer to help me manage this disease and she constantly monitors to see if anything needs to be added or changed. She’s also been a great resource for natural remedies and she’s always there to answer any questions you might have. Incorporating acupuncture and supplements in your routine is a must for Endo, and Dr. Taylor has such a wealth of knowledge and so much compassion for this and other female issues.
Dr. Taylor had been very beneficial to my lifelong circulatory issue. She told me that she wanted to get to the bottom of the of the problem with the pain, heat and general discomfort of my feet. She did her research, explained that I had a gene mutation and planned a treatment that has been successful at nearly a complete elimination of my painful problem. Thank you Dr. Taylor!
I have been a patient of Katania at One Sky Natural Health for the last year, and she has been amazing! I was having gastrointestinal issues, reflux, heartburn, and indigestion. With a variety of natural medicines, she was able to completely alleviate all of my root causes. She doesn’t just treat the symptoms she treats the root cause. The combination of acupuncture and natural medicine I am feeling better than ever. She was also able to help with some muscle tightness with cupping and acupuncture. I would recommend Dr. Katania highly especially if you have been to a traditional doctor and are not getting any results. She will work hard for the solution for you to achieve your health goals.
Katana has such a gift for identifying an issue and helping you find the perfect solution.
After suffering with IBS for years and seeing lots of different docs, I went to Katania on the recommendation of a friend with little hope that she could help, but I was proved very wrong. The results have been amazing. While I still suffer some bouts, in general, I feel like I’m leading a normal life and feel free to go out and enjoy things. I credit the success to the entire package of services she offers – the acupuncture, the nutrition guidance, and the supplements she prescribed. The bottom line – Amazing!
I have been going to Katania Taylor for acupuncture treatment and herbs now for over 8 years. I have had various reasons for my visits and each time she listens to me and works to find a solution. If she doesn’t know the answer she will research and get back to me quickly. I will never forget her compassion when I had a major illness a couple of years ago. Although I had to stop my acupuncture treatments for about a year; she continually checked in with me to see how I was doing. Her companion touched me and showed how much she thought about me as a person. She truly cares about her patients and will do extra to accommodate and help whatever is ailing you.
Doctor Taylor has been treating me with acupuncture for over a year. I have arthritis and some muscle cramps and the treatments are amazing. I feel more mobile and I have fewer cramps. For me going to see Dr. Taylor is better than a spa day.
I think, like many, I was initially skeptical about acupuncture and anything that wasn’t traditional, familiar Western Medicine. But six years ago, the chronic body pain that I constantly suffered had reached a breaking point. Unwilling to try heavy medications, I was taking five to six ibuprofens at a time, several times a day. I remember sitting in my car, crying because the pain was so unbearable. A friend had suggested acupuncture and at the time, I had laughed at the idea that tiny needles could even touch what was ravaging my body every day – but I had reached the point of opening my mind, and body, to anything.
By my third acupuncture session with Katania, I was no longer relying on ibuprofen to get me through the day. This was the first time in my adult life that I was not in daily, chronic pain! It was amazing! This began a journey that has transformed my life and the way I approach food and healing.
During our sessions, Katania always begins with open questions about how my body is feeling—and then, she listens carefully, following up with deeper questions, getting to the root of what is really happening in my body. Although she began by working on my chronic body pain, Katania quickly discerned that the cause for the pain was originating from my poor gut health and my decidedly SAD diet. She began to work on healing my gut, and subsequently, my body. Katania’s vast knowledge about deep nutrition and how to achieve it in my body has changed the way my family approaches food and health. Cleansing and refining my diet has transformed and energized my life, freeing me from pain and medication.
With Katania’s guidance, I have rid my body of chronic pain, breakouts, constant bloating, allergies, hyperhidrosis, lack of energy, and idiopathic hypersomnia. It has been a liberating experience – I have a healthy life I would not otherwise have had. I cannot thank Katania enough for her knowledge.
I’ve contacted Katania for advice on countless occasions for medical care for me and my children. She has settled my worried mom mind every single time! I’m confident with her intelligent and knowledgeable guidance and suggestions, and know they stem from reputable research and facts. I’m extremely happy and grateful to have Katania as a resource.
“I consulted with Dr. Katania Taylor in 2014 after experiencing periodic, yet severe lower abdominal pain at certain times of the month…. which then turned into daily problems.
After discussing all of my symptoms with Dr. Taylor, she advised that she believed that my issues were gynecological and not GI. She advised me to rule out the GI problem to be sure, so I did visit a GI specialist and the results of all of the tests were clear and my GI tract was in tip top shape!
I then went to a Gynecological specialist and it turned out that my issues were indeed gynecological as Dr. Taylor had suspected. I had severe endometriosis and was in need of a hysterectomy immediately to avoid having my bladder evastatingly affected by the problems. I am very thankful that I had Dr. Taylor (who knew what the problem was upon the first consultation) and I plan to have ongoing consultations with her in the future about my health issues and my body. “
