Dr. Alicia Johnson, ND

Naturopathic Doctor and Acupuncturist

Alicia Johnson is a licensed Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine. Her areas of expertise include medical weight loss, hormone balance, fatigue, anti-aging, and mood disorders.

Dr. Johnson has a passion for getting to know her patients and working together as a team to address even the most complicated health concerns.

Dr. Johnson utilizes natural, non-invasive therapies to treat many common conditions such as menstrual irregularities, menopausal symptoms, depression, anxiety, obesity, infertility, low testosterone, fatigue, digestive problems, and many other chronic conditions.

Dr. Johnson is a graduate from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, AZ. She received her acupuncture training from the Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture. Prior to medical school, she received her Bachelors of Science in Life Sciences with a secondary degree in Gerontology, the study of aging. Dr. Johnson’s patients are treated individually with a combination of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement recommendations, acupuncture, nutritional supplementation, botanical medicine, dietary counseling, homeopathy, and lifestyle counseling. This unique, individualized approach is effective for improving the outcome of almost any chronic health condition because many chronic diseases simply do not respond well to simple pharmaceutical treatment.
