Debora Chelson, NMD

Bastyr University (Naturopathic Medicine)

Clinical Internship (Chinlee, Navajo Reservation, AZ) 1993

I have been practicing naturopathic medicine here in Tucson for 9 years, and before that I had a full scope practice in Prescott  for 14 years.  My main focus now is “chronic” illness, or a state of “dis-ease.” Simply put, I treat people, not symptoms.  I work as a “Wellness Coach,” teaching and helping you to enhance the quality of your life.

If you are still struggling with ongoing health issues, after working with multiple, diverse medical professionals, incapable of finding a solution, it’s likely you found your way here after a long, exhausting, futile, and frustrating process.  Trying to balance conflicting opinions with the ever changing ‘conventional wisdom’ shouldn’t be your job, and only adds more stress to your situation.  The last thing you need in your situation is more stress, nor to feel helpless, and hopeless after all of your efforts.

Let’s get you off that treadmill and on your way to a more robust, higher functioning, and satisfying state of health.

I will develop a treatment plan with you by first reviewing your current state of wellness and areas of distress or desired improvement.  Then I will explain the foundational systems in the body that relate to those types of distress, and what can cause those systems to malfunction in the first place.  Next we will design a systemic approach to strengthen and support those systems, so they can get back to full function and the resulting symptoms can subside.

My Commitment to Education and Creating a Wellness Community

As part of fulfilling my intention to provide knowledge and help for as many people as I can reach, I am happy to share my expertise in group presentations and training seminars.  I have served on the Arizona Naturopathic Board of Medical Examiners (two years as the Chairman) by appointment, and at the pleasure of the Governor for five years.

I truly believe that life is about service, especially to those in need.  Your health is enhanced by helping others, just as mine is.  Let us all dance like no one is watching!

Please don’t hesitate to ask me about speaking at your special group event or non-profit organization meeting.
