Dr. Elaine Stewart is a licensed Naturopathic physician. She graduated from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and Health Sciences in Tempe, AZ. She also has Masters’ degrees in Nutrition, Health Administration and Gerontology.
Her decision to attend SCNM came after having two prior careers, one as a Clinical Nutritionist in Boston, Massachusetts and one as a Medical Economics data analyst working for a managed care health plan in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She returned to her home state of Arizona to care for her aging mother as she came to the end of her life.
Having overseen her mother’s hospital experience, she knew there must be a better, gentler way to medically support older adults in their later years. When she found SCNM, she knew that naturopathic medicine and its principles of treating the whole person and getting to the root cause was a wonderful approach to help patients of all ages make changes in their health that will make their current and later years healthy and productive. She is also a certified medical examiner for the Department of Transportation (DOT).
She enjoys hiking, sewing, bird watching, hanging out with friends and enjoying the beauty of Arizona.
Her mission as a naturopathic doctor is to empower every patient to become their best self through optimum health and well-being.
