Dr. Krystal Tellier, N.M.D, C.P.M.
Dr. Tellier earned her Bachelor of Science in Biology from Arizona State University (ASU). While attending ASU, she began exploring alternative medicine while working in a research lab that studied the ability to fight cancer using botanical constituents. This experience increased her curiosity in the use of natural remedies in fighting common medical conditions, which drove her to explore further the philosophy of alternative medicine. Dr. Tellier then realized her future was about to take another path, the “Natural-Path.”
While receiving her training at SCNM, Dr. Tellier worked with physicians trained in each Naturopathic modality. She discovered her desire was in being able to treat the entire family, but realized she wanted to continue her education in pediatrics and women’s medicine. Upon completion of her education at SCNM, Dr. Tellier continued her training in the private office of Dr. Farra Swan, ND, CPM. While working with Dr. Swan, Dr. Tellier found that her true passion was with natural childbirth in the home setting. Dr. Tellier also completed a one month internship at Casa de Nacimiento (CASA), a birthing center, located in El Paso, Texas. At CASA she was immerged into midwifery care which included prenatal visits, labor and delivery, post-partum care and pediatric care. Dr. Tellier sat for her midwifery certification in 2010.
Dr. Tellier utilizes botanical medicines, homeopathy, physical manipulation, acupuncture, IV therapy, hydrotherapy, nutritional supplements, and bio-identical hormones, to help address the needs of her patients. To evaluate the individual needs of her patients she may order specialty labs, which include hormone level assessments, food allergy testing, environmental toxin levels, advanced cholesterol and cardiac disease profiles, and body nutrient stores. Dr. Tellier has extensive training in women’s health, gastrointestinal disorders, endocrine dysfunction, detoxification methods, pediatric wellness and lifestyle counseling.
Dr. Tellier treats the whole person with therapies that are the least invasive and most cost effective. She looks for the cause of each individual person’s disease, and uses therapies that are curative, rather than just symptomatic relief. She believes that one’s health must address the mind, body and spirit. She promotes balance and moderation within her patients, and hopes that with proper healing, her patients may return to enjoying their lives. Most of all, Dr. Tellier expresses the importance of teaching our children healthy eating and lifestyle habits so that they may avoid the epidemic of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and drug addictions.
When Dr. Tellier is away from the office, she enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She loves the outdoors and any chance that she gets you will find her hiking, camping, running, swimming or traveling.
