Dr. Chelsea Azarcon
Dr. Chelsea is a Naturopathic Medical Doctor, trained at Bastyr University, San Diego. She also holds a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences from Cornell University, where she researched the medicinal action of traditional plants.
Her own chronic health issues inspired her passion for integrative medicine. In trying to find answers for her own health, she has worked with some of the best conventional doctors in the country at places like the Mayo Clinic and UCLA hospital. She has also worked with many types of brilliant alternative medicine practitioners. She found that when she combined conventional and naturopathic medicine, she achieved the greatest healing. These experiences shaped her medical perspective: she loves practicing research based integrative medicine but believes healing happens on a physical, spiritual, and emotional level. With this perspective, she strives to treat the whole person.
In practice, she focuses on conditions like chronic illnesses, infections, and environmental toxicity. She also understands that chronic illness is not simply autoimmune disease but any condition from which someone has not been able to find relief, whether that be headaches, PMS, anxiety, insomnia, or weight gain. She takes a whole body approach to treatment, addressing each patient’s genetically determined biochemical and nutritional needs, implementing foundations to healing, and identifying conditions that prevent the body from working optimally. Because of her own experiences, she has deep compassion and a desire to help people find healing from the inside out.
Dr. Chelsea lives in California and enjoys writing, hiking, traveling to new places, and spending time with her service dog Rey.
