Dr. Ferreira's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ferreira "Dr. Carmel Ferreira is a Naturopathic Medical Doctor and Licensed Acupuncturist. Dr. Ferreira received her Bachelor's of Science in Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology from the University of California, Santa Cruz in her home state. She worked as a Research Associate in Cardiology and Hematology Medical Research at various reputable institutions while preparing herself for medical school. Her desire to practice Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) never ceased to grow throughout this time. After searching for a medical school that would allow her to follow her passion she then found the specialty of naturopathic medicine and left her career in medical research after enrolling. In order to compliment her studies in conventional medicine and CAM she then sought to acquire a strong foundation in eastern medicine, leading her to also pursue an education in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Her search to become a holistic practitioner lead her to simultaneously attend naturopathic medical school at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine (SCNM) and her Masters at the Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture (PIHMA) in Arizona. With much dedication in attending two professional programs simultaneously, Dr. Ferreira was able to obtain her professional Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine at SCNM and her Masters of Science in Acupuncture at PIHMA. Upon completion of her medical boards she then completed the STAIR Integrative Residency through Bastyr University,which was sponsored by Integrative Therapeutics. Dr. Ferreira has always felt the need to be involved with her community and for this reason has volunteered at various clinics and hospitals in California, Arizona and Utah since 1996. Upon moving to Utah she felt impressed to find an organization that she can volunteer her professional skills, that would allow her to serve a population that had a great need. She was able to learn more about the Cancer Wellness House in Salt Lake City and has been volunteering since. Dr. Ferreira assists cancer patients by providing acupuncture in addition to counseling of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM). Her life long passion and dedication to the health care field has continued to drive her to work in the public's eye as to inform of resources available as to empower individuals of their own health. During her down time Dr. Ferreira enjoys being outdoors by participating in hiking, trail running, snowboarding and practicing the art of fire poi. These are only few of the activities she loves. Her greatest passion has been in the kitchen, creating nutritious dense foods that are packed with flavor. She is also enjoys practicing spiritual meditation and is an active member in her church and congregation where she also volunteers in various affiliated activities. "
