Naturopathic Doctor and Nutritionist Team Up in Back Bay Location




Dr. Keri Layton has teamed up with Lexy Penney, MSN, RD, a nutritionist who truly understands food. Layton, a naturopathic doctor trained at Bastyr University, a leading four-year school of naturopathic medicine, is passionate about enhancing integrative medicine in Boston. Her mission is to empower patients to understand their own physiology so they can take charge of their health.

Layton completed a residency in integrative family medicine with a focus on functional medicine. She has worked for more than 10 years in private practice teaching people of all ages how to reduce their reliance on medication and enhance their well-being and vitality, without an overwhelming number of supplements or an excess of expensive testing. She also understands and supports appropriate use of medication and medical procedures and works with patients to enhance their efficacy and minimize side effects and recovery time.

Penney, a nutritionist and registered dietitian, recognizes that there is not one best diet, and she is passionate about helping people find their best diet. Instead of focusing on prescribed diets and counting calories, Penney thrives on helping people find and implement a manageable diet and lifestyle strategy that will create and maintain great lifelong health.

Location: 29 Commonwealth Ave., Boston. Learn more about these practitioners and their innovative approach at KeriLayton.com and ShantiNutrition.com.
