Dr. Watts

Growing up, I always wanted to be a physician and my desire for this never wavered over time. As a teen, I watched my Mama struggle with complications from Rheumatoid Arthritis.  She had difficulty tolerating conventional treatments, had multiple side effects, and ultimately discovered that she needed a different approach for her treatment.  By the time I was a junior in high school, she was under the care of a holistic physician who got her into remission and thriving within a handful of months.  I felt protective of my Mama for seeing a “witch doctor” but I couldn’t question her progress.  At her urging, I met with this physician, job shadowed at his office, and within a short period of time found myself questioning: What side of medicine did I want to be on?  By now you know my decision!

In My Approach, I Believe:

Preventative Care

In preventative care; building daily habits, nutrition, and lifestyle habits that get us healthy and keep us that way. The longer that I practice, the more important these habits have become in the healing process.  Sometimes health and healing can come from relatively simple changes.

The Doctors

That doctors should be teachers and we should lead you by example. Too often I have heard from patients that they were told “to eat better and exercise more”, not quite sure of what that specifically meant for them.  I see being a Naturopathic Doctor as being a navigator: you are the driver of your bus, and I am your navigator.  You determine the destination and I can help you choose the best sightseeing along the way.

The Patients

That patients have to advocate for their health: to take notes, to ask questions, to do research. I always welcome questions!  I also believe that health care providers should be part of this advocacy; gatekeepers to health, if you will, so no one falls through the cracks.  Healthcare has been built with specialists that are experts in their fields, and I believe that Naturopathic Doctors are experts at seeing all of these moving parts and taking this into account for the whole person that’s sitting in front of us.

Asking Questions

That asking the question of WHY? is one of the best ways to get to the root cause(s) to health concerns. Addressing the root cause(s) of illness gets a patient feeling better and healthier without just “band-aiding” symptoms.

Time & Place

That there is a time and place for all forms of medicine: prescriptions, surgery, nutrition changes, lifestyle changes, herbs, etc. No one health care provider has all of the answers, and often patients will benefit from having been educated and informed of their options, and being able to choose from the best from both worlds.  Patients do not need to feel that they must choose one or the other side; they can truly have the best of both worlds and we should all be building bridges to see that it happens.

No Shortcuts

That there are no cookie cutters to health and healing; patient plans never look completely identical at my office because everyone is addressed as an individual. Patients can usually expect that we will utilize: nutrition, lifestyle changes, herbs/botanicals, vitamins/minerals, supplementation, and homeopathic remedies.  Naturopathic Doctors come equipped with many tools in their toolbox!

Get Started
