Who we are

IMG_0023Jennifer Gunst, DAOM
Jen grew up in Southern California and migrated up to the Bay Area to study biochemistry genetics at Berkeley. One of her first academic exposures to integrative medicine began in the cancer research lab at UCSF, where a neighboring lab was boiling Chinese herbs in order to extract the active constituents for analysis. Struck by the ancient wisdom behind the herbs combined with modern technology, Jen decided to pursue her doctorate in Chinese and integrative medicine.
Along the way, Jen was introduced to other forms of natural medicine that included muscle response testing, NAET, and BioSET. She has used and is familiar with all of the various computerized systems that evolved with these modalities, including the Zyto, QXSI, IQS, Asyra, and other biofeedback machines.
In 2015, Jen discovered the brand new German CyberScan system and is currently developing novel protocols and using it in her current clinical practice, with thanks to trainings by Dieter of Aussimed. She believes that CyberScan has the potential to change the paradigm of modern medicine and is conducting trainings and conferences for practitioners.
Her current approach to practice is utilization of the CyberScan to assess genetic, biological, environmental, and lifestyle imbalances in order to effectively address each of these factors. This results in targeted and individualized treatment plans that allow for the growth of each person’s wellness and immune system health at maximum capacity. She specializes in connecting the dots with both simple and complex cases.
Jen is licensed as a primary care provider, and can integrate with your current provider(s) and/or provide access to both functional laboratory testing and traditional blood work.
