Dr. Ray BarbourRevée Barbour, ND, MS (NUNM)

Revée Barbour, ND MS, affectionately known as “Dr. Ray”, began her journey as a healer while growing up in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Her first exposure to healing was from her elders and parents who used natural home remedies (folk medicine) as their family’s medicine. This was used for most complaints and minor illnesses. Dr. Ray learned at a young age that the body can heal itself with the healing power of nature. From there, she knew her destiny was to become a doctor.

Dr. Ray received her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine, a Master of Science in Integrative Medicine Research, and a certificate in Natural Childbirth from the National University of Natural Medicine.
