Cheryl Hamilton, NMD, began her healthcare career over 37 years ago. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Food Science and Nutrition from Colorado State University; worked in the health and fitness industry; owned a nutritional counseling business; taught collegiate nutrition, health and wellness courses; and raised four children before attending the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine to become a naturopathic medical doctor with a concentration in women's health. She chose women's health because she feels that since women give birth and are the primary nurturers of children, women have the greatest influence on future generations. Helping women to reach their full potential of health and wellbeing also improves the lives that women influence.
Dr. Hamilton established the Health and Healing Center in Prescott, Arizona where she sees men and women of all ages. Since endocrinology is integral to health, she spends a great deal of time reviewing current research on the subjects of thyroid and adrenal health, bio-identical hormone therapy and the influence of environmental toxicology on the endocrine system. She also particularly enjoys helping patients with gastrointestinal disorders, menopause, PMS, PMDD, PCOS, insomnia/fatigue, thyroid disorders, infertility, weight control and diabetes management.
She firmly believes the foundation of physiological and psychological health is a healthy gastrointestinal tract and consumption of organic, nutrient dense foods. She is passionate about teaching her patients about food and gut health and writes articles on the subject for several publications. Research developments in the role of the gut microbiome and its relationship to body weight, immune function, autoimmunity and mental emotional health; small intestinal bowel overgrowth (SIBO); and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) are her special interests.
Dr. Hamilton has also completed postgraduate training in Clinical Applications and Advanced Topics on IV nutrient Therapy; Heavy Metal Toxicology and Clinical chelation: EDTA, DMPS, DMSA; prolotherapy and platelet rich plasma injection therapy via the American Osteopathic Association and the American Association of Osteopathic Medicine; and aesthetic medicine via the Clear Skin Institute and Beverly Hills R.N.
As a naturopathic doctor, Dr. Hamilton is passionate about assisting those interested in leading healthier lives. Naturopathic doctors have an extensive education in the biochemical and physiologic process of the human body and are highly trained in pharmaceutical medicine, minor surgery, botanical & nutriceutical medicine, acupuncture, hydrotherapy, environmental medicine (including electromagnetic field influences of biological organisms), physical medicine and homeopathy. Dr. Hamilton focuses on finding and treating the cause of dis-ease while working with the body's innate healing ability.
Dr. Hamilton recently established Choose Vibrant Living, a health education 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization so she can inspire a broader population to adopt a healthy diet and lifestyle for the prevention and reversal of chronic disease. In her downtime, Dr. Hamilton enjoys writing, reading, cooking healthy food, gardening and food preservation and hiking.
