I want to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Guillermo Ruiz, NMD and I am the current resident and newest doctor at Integrative Health. Prior to my doctorate, I spent my childhood in Mexico, before moving to Florida in 1996. I completed a Bachelor of Science Degree in Medical Sciences and a minor in Health Services Administration at the University of Central Florida.
While pursuing my bachelor’s degree I worked at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. As an Advanced Clinical Tech, I worked under an incredible team of doctors and nurses in the Pediatric Emergency Department and Level One Trauma Center. While working there I witnessed the amazing, state-of- the-art care in emergency medicine but also learned of a larger health care system in disarray. I used this new perspective and a passion for evidence-based medicine to change my life. By changing my diet, learning about proper movement and implementing optimal lifestyle habits I was able to improve my personal health; and found a calling in Naturopathic Medicine. At that point, I decided to further my career with a focus on finding and removing the underlying obstacles to health.
While attending SCNM, I became interested in the treatment of endocrine disease with a focus on thyroid health. Under the mentorship of Dr. Alan Christianson, I have expanded my knowledge on the treatment of Hashimoto’s and Grave’s disease.
I learn from my patients every day, and I could not be happier working at this amazing practice. Every day at the office I feel like I have the best job in the world! If you see me around, say hello, I would love to meet you personally.
In good health,
