Dr. Raquel Espinol is an Associate Physician with Integrative Health specializing in Thyroid, Adrenal, Male/Female Hormonal imbalances and weight loss management.
Dr. Espinol’s interest in natural medicine began in her early childhood years when she would hear stories about how her great-great grandmother was the medicine woman in her village. This ancestral connection helped to provide a foundation for her developing interest and professional growth in the field of naturopathic medicine. Dr. Espinol focused her early education in human anatomy and physiology, earning her a Bachelors of Science degree in Biology from Santa Clara University. Upon completing her undergraduate degree she moved to Maui, Hawaii, where she took a class offered by a local naturopathic physician focusing on thyroid health. It was via this class, she discovered that naturopathic medicine combines deep-rooted wisdom together with scientifically sound solutions, offering important healing focus and innovative healthcare solutions for modern times. This experience resulted in Dr. Espinol pursuing a degree in Naturopathic Medicine.
Dr. Espinol completed the Doctorate program in Naturopathic Medicine at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, receiving her doctorate degree with honors, and is an Arizona board-certified Naturopathic Physician (NMD).
Dr. Espinol’s passion is working with men and women addressing hormone imbalances, weight loss, nutrition, and infertility. Her focus is on integrating the best of what conventional and naturopathic medicine have to offer in order to create a unique and personal experience that results in positive life change and motivation. She loves building a partnership with her patients, creating a visit that is both empowering and educational so that patients feel capable of attaining their health goals and feeling their best.
