About Sweetgrass Natural Medicine


Dr. Johnston earned her doctorate degree from National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM) and is licensed as a Naturopathic Physician in Montana. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Middlebury College with a B.A. in environmental policy; attended the University of Montana for her pre-medical education; and studied botanical medicine at the California School of Herbal Studies.

A deep reverence for the Earth, intrigue with medicinal plants, and passion for yoga all led her to the field of alternative healthcare. For four years she received extensive training as a primary care physician with emphasis in treatments for chronic illness, gastrointestinal health, cancer-care, and women’s medicine. In addition to her studies at NCNM, she also completed extra training in Applied Kinesiology, Homeopathy, Biotherapeutic Drainage, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Holistic Pelvic Care™, Body Talk and Reiki.

Her belief that the health of the land and the health of humans are intricately interwoven guides her philosophically and medically--just as soil must be cultivated to grow bountiful produce, we can all plant seeds to create optimum wellness. Outside of the office, Dr. Johnston is a mother, organic gardener, cook, and explorer of the mountains who enjoys constant study of the healing arts, yoga, and cultivating her mini farm. Holcomb is honored be a part of the vibrant community of Bozeman and to call the Rocky Mountains home.

Dr. Johnston works as a primary care physician and treats a wide variety of health issues. Here in Bozeman some of the most common conditions she sees are: thyroid disease, weight concerns, hormone imbalances, heart disease, autoimmune disease, food allergies and intolerances, depression, digestive complaints, fatigue, heart disease, sports injuries, infertility, and menstrual disorders. Dr. Johnston enjoys working with people of all ages from pre-conception on up!
