Naturopathic physicians choose the least invasive and least toxic treatments necessary for each patient.
Naturopathic doctors recognize the body’s inherent ability to heal itself.
Naturopathic doctors identify, address and remove the underlying causes of disease.
Educating and supporting patients on personal health management is an important role for naturopathic doctors. They empower patients to take responsibility for their own health. They also acknowledge the therapeutic value inherent in the doctor-patient relationship.
This is a holistic concept that recognizes the body as an integrated whole. Naturopathic doctors treat the patient, not the disease. A naturopathic assessment addresses the nutritional status, lifestyle, family history, physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental and social factors in a person’s life.
Naturopathic doctors promote a focus on overall health, wellness and disease prevention.
Dr. Selvey graduated from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and Health Sciences in Tempe, Arizona, after a career in the medical device industry. Dr. Selvey first earned an undergraduate degree in Biology from Arizona State University, followed by a graduate degree, also from Arizona State, in physiology; his research was on Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
Initially, Dr. Selvey worked in public health, becoming an epidemiologist with the Arizona Department of Health Services. He first trained in infectious diseases, followed by environmental medicine focusing on environmental toxins such as pesticides, heavy metal poisonings, and aflatoxin.
During this time, Dr. Selvey chose to devote some of his time to teaching graduate courses in Public Health at Arizona State University and had several papers published in prestigious medical journals.
After a decade of public service, Dr. Selvey opted to work with an internationally-renowned designer and manufacturer of medical devices where he was responsible for conducting clinical and non-clinical research into surgically implanted biomaterials for repair and reconstruction of severely damaged tissues.
Later, Dr. Selvey worked with a start-up medical device company in Los Angles, Ca. that was focused on the precision delivery of insulin to persons with Type I diabetes. He helped to develop external insulin pumps and supplies, the implantable insulin pump, and the continuous glucose monitoring system.
Dr. Selvey eventually returned home to Arizona, joining a new company focused on expanding the ability of hospitals and surgeons to provide the best possible surgical care with safe and effective surgical products. In this role, Dr. Selvey was instrumental in leading the company from “Concept” to the largest and most successful in the US for that type of product.
More recently, Dr. Selvey has consulted with medical device companies designing new implants for hand, wrist and ankle surgery, wound healing, and craniomaxillofacial reconstruction.
