Central to Dr. Kustra’s philosophy of healing is the belief that we all have innate healing power and the potential to be truly well. She feels that illness is a sign of imbalance in the mind and body, whereas health, rather than just being the absence of disease, is the attainment of our full physical and spiritual potential. These beliefs guide her practice as she draws on both integrative and conventional therapies to support and nurture her clients on their path towards well-being. She has a special interest in nutritional healing, the mind-body connection, and Functional Medicine – a new approach to healthcare which explores how an individual’s unique biochemical makeup interfaces with his/her environment to create disease or health.

Dr. Kustra takes a holistic approach to family medicine -- believing that one’s family and social network, cultural and spiritual practices, belief patterns, stressors, genes and environment all contribute to one’s state of health. She enjoys listening to her patients, and learning about these causal factors so that healing can occur at a fundamental level. She believes that personal empowerment through self-discovery, knowledge, and understanding is crucial to well-being.

In addition to her work at True North, Dr. Kustra also teaches medical students and residents at Central Maine Medical Center and Maine Medical Center.
