Each client is unique
At Donna Bunte Whole Health,
we cater our treatments to each client’s specific needs.
Donna incorporates nutrition, health coaching, detox cleanses, Chinese medicine, acupuncture, herbal medicine, and energy work in her practice, varying the combinations depending on distinctive issues and concerns.
Donna’s holistic approach to wellness looks at all aspects of a client’s life and their health from physical, mental and emotional perspectives. She diagnoses using her 20 years of experience as a Chinese medical practitioner and her nutrition and health coaching knowledge to find the best treatment plan for each individual. Beginning with an in depth consultation of the client’s health history, Donna learns their background, eating habits, stress, work, family situation, genetics and family history, exercise, injuries, sleep habits, relaxation and recreation – in order to determine how best to address their health issues and goals.
Each client is unique, therefore each treatment is customized to their needs. Donna uses nutrition, health coaching, detox cleanses, Chinese medicine, acupuncture, herbal medicine, and energy work in her practice in different combinations for each of her clients to lead them to a balanced, healthy lifestyle.
Donna has been practicing Chinese medicine, acupuncture and nutrition for twenty years. She opened her practice in 1995 in New York and moved her practice to Old Greenwich, CT where she has been helping people since 1999.
She holds a Masters degree in acupuncture from the Tristate College of Acupuncture in Manhattan and is certified in Chinese herbal medicine. She is licensed to practice acupuncture in New York and Connecticut and is certified by the National Commission for Certification of Acupuncturists and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
Donna is also a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, trained through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York. She uses nutrition and dietary counselling to mentor clients to achieve their wellness goals and cultivate sustainable, positive health choices. By addressing all aspects of health including eating, relationships, exercise, career and spirituality, she guides clients to become healthier and happier in all aspects of their lives.
Donna’s connection and motivation to pursue this career is very personal. Back in her twenties, Donna experienced heart issues and discovered that sugar can cause a myriad of problems including heart valve problems. After removing sugar from her diet and learning the value of whole foods, her health issues passed, and her passion for nutrition was born. Subsequently, she discovered she had ovarian cysts and, not wanting to have surgery, she turned to Chinese herbal medicine and the cysts disappeared. Years later, she went to an acupuncturist for infertility and was able to have two children with the help of Chinese herbs and acupuncture. It was then that Donna decided to study the comprehensive system of study of Chinese medicine with a focus on nutrition. She has experienced the life-changing effects of holistic medicine herself, and now devotes her life to sharing her knowledge with others.
