About Dr. Watts, ND
Dr. Watts was introduced to holistic medicine at an early age after witnessing her Mother recover from Rheumatoid Arthritis under the care of a holistic D.O. She always wanted to be a physician but it was this D.O.'s approach that made her think outside the box; that there could be many ways to help patients achieve health and it didn't always have to come in the form of a pill. Having grown up in Ohio, she attended the University of Toledo for college, and then went on to Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona. After completing her internship she moved back to Toledo and has been in practice since 2011. Since then she has worked with hundreds of patients ranging in ages and health conditions; over time digestive health has become one of her specialities. She has started to recognize that regardless of a patient's diagnosis, health can and should start in the kitchen.
