Lakeside Natural Medicine Opens Food Is Medicine Center in Shorewood

Drs. Aidanne MacDonald-Milewski, Joanne Aponte and Sarah Axtell, L-R

Lakeside Natural Medicine has moved to a larger space, 3510 North Oakland Avenue, #203, in Shorewood, which will feature a kitchen to be used for workshops, allowing the practitioners to teach and inspire patients to heal with food. In addition, they’ve hired a third naturopathic doctor, Aidanne MacDonald-Milewski, ND, who will practice alongside Sarah Axtell, ND, and Joanne Aponte, ND.

Since opening Lakeside Natural Medicine in 2011, Axtell has seen a steady increase in the number of people seeking natural and alternative approaches for their health. “Our vision is to create a Food is Medicine center for Milwaukee, where we can host nutrition workshops, in addition to offering individual naturopathic health and wellness consultations,” Axtell enthuses. She notes that there is much confusion out there regarding nutrition and diet trends such as paleo, vegetarian, vegan, keto or gluten-free. “Our hope is to bring clarity to patients and truly empower them to take their health into their own hands—starting in the kitchen.”

The doctors are currently offering both in-office appointments at their new location along with telehealth appointments (phone and video). The naturopathic doctors at Lakeside Natural Medicine provide holistic health and wellness services for the whole family. They help people facing many health conditions such as digestive disorders, auto-immune disorders, weight-loss resistance, food sensitivities and hormone imbalances. They are passionate about using food as medicine with their patients.
