Woman doctor is standing near window with crossed armsHow could we have left out naturopathic physicians, readers wondered? We wonder ourselves. Here’s an update.

In August we brought you a list of leading integrative physicians who have excellent, easily digestible newsletters, blogs, or websites on complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) available to patients and the general public. In this update, we add NDs and DCs, as well as physicians recommended by readers whom we were glad to get to know better.

Naturopathic Physicians:

  • Peter D’Adamo, ND: Personalized Living (e-newsletter). A naturopathic physician, bestselling author, researcher-educator, D’Adamo is considered a world expert in glycobiology, principally the ABO (ABH) blood groups and the secretor (FUT2) polymorphisms.
  • Marianne Marchese, ND (downloadable articles). Researcher, author, teacher, and naturopathic physician specializing in women’s wellness. She uses botanical medicine, bioidentical hormones, homeopathy, detoxification, IV therapy, chelation, microcurrent therapy, diet, exercise, stress management, and lifestyle changes in her treatments.
  • Michael T. Murray, ND: Natural Facts (e-newsletter). One of the world’s leading authorities on natural medicine and author of over thirty books featuring natural approaches to health, and director of product development for Natural Factors supplements.

    Shauna Young is a traditional ND in Colorado. After at least 25 years of practicing, she is now unable to work with children and cancer patients. Liz Lipski is a Holistic Nutritionist with many titles, a doctorate (including former head of doctoral studies at Hawthorn University) and over 30 years of teaching and working with clients. She had to leave her home in NC, move to Atlanta and finally to MD to work at the University of MD in a nutrition department. She had to do all this because Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics talked North Carolina into insisting that nutritionists take the same courses that RDs have to. Meanwhile, most RDs work in schools, prisons, and hospitals. We all know how well people are who come out of these institutions and how nutrition is practiced in them.

  • Gina F.

    This list would be more utilizable if one could sort practitioners by zip code. I would find it inconvenient to look up each one’s address.

    Thanks for taking that into consideration.

  • Ron McComb

    I recommend Dr. Geoffrey Ames MD

    Jenny Thompson is from Health Sciences Institute, not Services

    • And what about Nationally Certified Homeopaths CCH? (not just MD’s, or ND’s as unless their life is dedicated to homeopath, which is a very complex modality) they cannot be very good with it!

  • rjpbobp

    Dr. Michael Carlston – Santa Rosa, CA

    Dr. Terri Turner, DO – Sebastopol, CA and Spokane, WA

  • I was wondering about adding some acupuncture/Oriental Medicine practitioners– LAcs and DOMs. Perhaps Andrew Gaddaert, Bob Flaws, Honora Wolfe, Lonny Jarrett, Miki Shima, or Jake Fratkin? The trouble is that so far I’m not finding the kind of patient-friendly articles or newsletters that you’re looking for.

  • Emily Dale

    For some 20+ years I placed my life and health in the capable hands of Integrative M.D.s in North Carolina. My health was robust, even though I was in my 80’s. In 2011 I moved to Jacksonville, Florida to be near a son and daughter, but cannot find any Integrative physicians who take Medicare patients, mainly due to the onerous paperwork with little recompense. As a result I have been having to self-doctor, using the prior recommendations of my NC doctors, to purchase the vitamins/minerals/herbals in local health food stores and Dr. Mercola that were maintaining my robust condition. I would like to know if I am still on the right track, as I haven’t had any laboratory analyses of my blood and urinary chemistry for four years, but need a cooperative doctor to order these tests, some of which are covered by Medicare. I’ll be 89 next month, and fear I’ll be going downhill fast if I don’t get the care I need. . I have been told, informally, that I have arthritis where my breastbone and rib cage meet, as an episode of intermittent pain in that area caused me to go to the ER to check for a heart problems. Fortunately, my heart is in good shape. I eat only organic, non-GMO foods, other than on rare occasions when I am taken out for a meal.

  • I would like to be included on your list…I practice at http://www.gordonmedical.com and use integrative therapies with every patient. Mara

  • Mark Thorson

    I’m sure it’s an oversight that you omitted Dr. Leonard Coldwell, who would fit right in with the rest of your list. His modest biography is here:

    LifeWorks Wellness Center, 301 Turner Street, Clearwater, FL 33756
