Dr. Tiffany Turner – Natural thyroid and hormone treatment

Meet Dr. Tiffany Turner

Dr. Tiffany Turner holds a doctorate in naturopathic medicine from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine. Prior to moving to Arizona, she completed a Bachelor of Science degree with a double major in Psychology and Biology from the University of the Fraser Valley in British Columbia, Canada.

She enjoys both lab-based and clinical research and has been a research assistant at SCNM and the Arizona State University Biodesign Institute investigating prevention, control and treatment of multi-drug resistant bacteria and viruses using botanicals. Her work has been published in several peer-reviewed journals.

Her love of learning and natural curiosity led to a childhood nickname of “20 Questions” and has since sparked a passion for sharing her research with others. She has presented nationally at integrative conferences including the Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine Symposium, the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians Annual Convention, the Southwest Conference on Botanical Medicine, and the Ancestral Health Symposium as well as internationally at the International Congress on Naturopathic Medicine. Videos of selected presentations as well as links to publications can be found at Beyond20Questions.com

She has a special interest in endocrinology and mental health and is absolutely delighted to have the privilege of pursuing a residency under the mentorship of Dr. Christianson and the talented team at Integrative Health.

Dr. Turner has a passion for promoting social connection as an important aspect of health and enjoys volunteering in the community during her spare time. She also loves ice skating, attending hockey games, painting, and stumbling across fascinating case studies while perusing the literature on a Saturday morning.
