Meet the Staff
Dr. Duncan Heard, ND
Dr. Duncan Heard is our resident physician. He is currently accepting appointments for new naturopathic patients as well as IV treatments.
He graduated from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, AZ. During his time there, he personally experienced issues related to chronic infections and adrenal fatigue due to prolonged levels of high stress. The impact on his physical, mental and emotional health was real and difficult to treat successfully with conventional medicine. Struggling with his own health issues and working with numerous patients who are suffering with a variety of problems has helped Dr. Heard to have sympathy and compassion for those experiencing ill health. He has been able to assist patients in recovering from acute and chronic health concerns without using pharmaceuticals.
Dr. Heard’s main treatment tool is classical homeopathy, which is a powerful system of medicine that stimulates the body to correct health imbalances. He also addresses problems of lifestyle that contribute to disease, including nutrition, physical movement, stress management, sleep, hygiene, and healthy relationships. His areas of interest are heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and hormonal issues (e.g. low testosterone) to name a few.
Dr. Heard’s goal is to become a partner in your health, rather than just be your doctor. What does that look like? It looks like you being the expert over your body and Dr. Heard being an expert in naturopathic medicine. When combined in a partnership we make a joint decision regarding your health and treatment.
Dr. Heard earned his B.S. in Nutrition Sciences from Texas A&M University. He is a member of the Homeopathic Academy of Naturopathic Physicians. He is married to a loving wife with wonderful children.

Emilie Davis, MScN
Emilie Davis received a Master of Science in Nutrition from the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon. She also has a Utah teaching license where she taught students with disabilities in public schools for ten years.
Emilie provides nutritional support and counseling to patients with a variety of needs. Her interests and specialties include: children and adults with behavioral and neurological disorders, autoimmune disease, gut health, food relationship coaching including intuitive and mindful eating, and more.
Her belief is that food has the power to improve our health in important ways and it doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated. “Eat food, mostly plants, not too much.” This simple directive from Michael Pollan’s In Defense of Food sums up the basics. Let Emilie help you learn how to eat real food again.
When Emilie isn’t working with patients she loves to hike or run with her Goldendoodle, Gatsby. She enjoys cooking, reading, and dreams of having a garden someday.
