Dr. Paula Stewart N.D., L.Ac.
Naturopathic Doctor and Licensed Acupuncturist
After graduating from the University of Central Florida with dual undergraduate degrees in Biology and Molecular Microbiology, I knew I was called to serve in the field of medicine. After working in dermatological and hospital pathology labs, I was convinced that prevention was a key component of medicine. This opened a world of questions about not only my health, but the health history of my family.
These questions eventually lead me to earn a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (ND) degree from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine (now known as Sonoran University of Health Sciences). In addition, I earned a Master of Science degree in Acupuncture at Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture (PIHMA), where I studied Traditional Chinese Medicine. Along with general family medicine, my areas of expertise include digestive disorders, dermatology, women’s medicine, pain and stress management. In addition, I incorporate numerous styles of acupuncture, effectively taking a holistic approach to minimize discomfort and maximize health benefits.
As a Naturopathic Doctor and Acupuncturist, my passion is to inform and motivate each patient to become passionate about their individual health. It is this passion that empowers patients to approach preventative and holistic (mind, body and spirit) medicine as a lifestyle for themselves and their family, effecting generations to come.
