Dr. Danett Bean (Doctor of Acupuncture and Asian Medicine), affectionately called Dr. Danett, is a caring and compassionate healer who began studying health in the early nineties. Since then, she has become certified, licensed, and skilled in a variety of health disciplines and has administered thousands of treatments to assist people toward achieving better health. Though Dr. Danett’s clinical experience is vast, her biggest health lesson came after having her son. Dr. Danett battled health conditions for years that almost took her life, but she survived victoriously and became passionate about spreading awareness on postnatal depletion. This resulted in the authoring of her book, A Taste of Our Own Medicine: 3 Vital Keys to Ending Postnatal Depletion, Nurturing Mothers and Improving Our Communities.
The Essential Practice of Preventive Care:
Dr. Danett identifies how postnatal depletion and other conditions can adversely affect women’s health, both short-term and long-term. As such, she is dedicated to the essential practice of proper preventive care for women. This intersection of preventive care and women’s health is where Dr. Danett feels most passionate, and is why she continues to be a fierce advocate for ending postnatal depletion and other conditions that can potentially be avoided. This passion fueled the creation of Yoni Box, a health-savvy blog that serves to break the taboos related to women’s reproductive health and provide nature-based perspectives and solutions. In addition to authoring the Yoni Box Fibroid Prevention Guide, Dr. Danett is a contributing author in Queen Afua’s book PLANET HEAL: What would you do to heal planet Earth? with her essay “Heal The Mother, Heal The Earth”. Dr. Danett also offers natural remedies that can support women, young and old, through key transitions in life. She lectures on this intersection of preventive care and women’s health at various events. Dr. Danett has created initiatives to support mothers, including a weekly support group for mothers and wives (currently closed) and the Yoni Box Annual 21 Day Mother’s Day Challenge.
In her private practice, Dr. Danett assists women with the full spectrum of reproductive health concerns, including menstrual cycle issues for teenagers and adults, fertility readiness, labor preparation, postnatal care, hormonal imbalances, and menopausal symptoms. Dr. Danett uses herbal medicine, lifestyle recommendations, acupuncture, and other healing modalities via her signature Back To The Middle Method. This method addresses healing on a root level that aligns the body, mind, and spirit for optimal health. As an integrative medicine practitioner, who strongly believes in patient-centered medicine, Dr. Danett works with Western medical doctors and practitioners of various disciplines to best assist patients. Currently, Dr. Danett sees patients by appointment in her office on the cusp of Bedford Stuyversant and Bushwick in Brooklyn, NY and offers virtual consultations to patients across the United States and all over the world.
Dr. Danett has a doctoral Asian medicine specialization in women’s health and geriatrics, with a Diplomate of Asian Medicine. A New York state licensed acupuncturist, Dr. Danett is certified in Chinese herbology, eastern nutrition, and Earth Qi Gong for women. She also has an academic appointment at SUNY Downstate Hospital, and teaches obstetrics and gynecology at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, New York City. A former member of the medical staff of the Women’s Health Center Empowerment Division at Housing Works and assistant producer of Global Medicine Review, Dr. Danett has helped organize community health expos including collaborations with the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI), WBAI, and Baruch College. She also has been a featured guest on radio and television media. Currently residing in Brooklyn, New York, Dr. Danett is a mother and wife.

“Dr. Danett is a brilliant doctor and a compassionate spirit. She listens even better than she speaks (which is pretty remarkable) to uncover the root causes of my health imbalance. She is patient, but persistent in her healing methods, and really integrates them well, so that all things are working together. That kind of mindfulness is not easily found in medicine. Dr. Danett has helped me form better lifestyle habits, and thanks to her, I’m the healthiest I’ve ever been.”
“When I reflect on the treatment I have received at Back to the Middle from Dr. Danett Bean, I am filled with such gratitude. New to acupuncture I was nervous about needles but Dr. Bean put me at ease with her sensitive and gentle approach to healing. Over the course of eight years, her combination of acupuncture, herbal remedies and diet recommendations helped ease my suffering from fibromyalgia, PTSD, depression, menstrual discomfort and smoking cessation. I could not imagine that I could feel so much better from where I began. Today, I’m not in pain anymore, the world is a much brighter place and I am deeply grateful for the healing at Back to the Middle. There is no way to truly thank her enough.”
“I had a horrible-ish pregnancy with my 3rd child. I had never gone to my due date and I was pretty much there ready for this baby to come out. Dr. Bean did some points on me and I got some rest, then went into labor in the morning. By the time the midwife came, I was in the last stage of labor. The path was open and she came out easily. I am so grateful to Dr. Bean for helping my labor to progress and for being so caring and tender in my time of frustration.”
“ When I decided to take care of myself more I was introduced to Dr. Bean’s Feminine Balance herbal supplement. I open it up and take it as a tea first thing in the morning. I felt the difference right away, it left me feeling more whole, like I had more of myself to work from. It made me feel more nurtured and replenished like a hot bath and massage after a hard day. It’s an amazing formula that I would recommend to any woman who is ready to do something for herself that will ultimately benefit everyone else around her too! ”
“Thank you so for being such an amazing healer and acupuncturist to me all these years.”
“I am so grateful for you and the attention and care you have provided me over the years. I am healthier because of you!”

“I have known Dr. Bean for nearly 9 years. Over the years, each one of my family members and friends that I have referred to Dr. Bean adore her. There have been many occasions where she has literally saved my life. The healing journey can be experienced as transformation — the little death and rebirth. When you don’t know what is wrong and how to go about healing, it can be very frightening. On each occasion when I was fortunate enough to have Dr. Bean work with me through my healing journey, I was indeed reborn and grateful to have been lovingly cared for, listened to and heard. Her vast body of knowledge, and experience, combined with her intuitive knowing of what to do and how to do it is an invaluable combination. I am very grateful to have Dr. Bean in my life and am blessed when it comes to my healing journey because I am cared for and healed by an Angel. Thanks Dr. Bean. You are the best.”
“Dr. Bean is a god send. I don’t know what I would do without her!’
