Heilen Natural Medicine is a family practice located in Casa Grande, Arizona. Heilen is a German word that means to heal. It's pronounced "hi-lin." (We think that's much easier than other German words, such as Kugelschreiber or Schornsteinfegermeister.)
Core to our medical philosophy is the idea that the human body is an intelligent creation and capable of healing itself. Rather than suppressing or treating symptoms, we utilize a variety of natural, gentle therapies that enable the body to heal itself.
I started my journey in natural medicine when I pursued an undergraduate degree in nutrition from Arizona State University. My plan was to attend medical school. As the time grew closer to apply to medical schools, I started to speak with friends who were getting accepted into traditional MD or DO programs. They told me that nutrition was not a focus of their curriculum, and this did not sit well with me.
After discovering naturopathic medicine, I knew I had found my calling. I approach medicine with the idea that simple, gentle therapies are often best. Medicine is not a one-size-fits-all game. Everyone is unique, and your treatment will likely be completely different than anyone else. I am excited to become a partner and guide on your journey toward improved health.
