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.
Dr. Emy Cummins, N.M.D
Dr. Emy attended Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona where she gained her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine. Her primary focus is on family medicine, pain management, hormone therapy, endocrinology and gastrointestinal conditions. Her expertise lies in modalities including acupuncture, cupping, botanical medicine, IV and injection nutrient therapy, hydrotherapy, nutrition and lifestyle management to best serve in treating her patients
Dr. Cummins’ passion derives from her own struggles with Lupus, a chronic autoimmune disease, and conventional medicine - which offered her no relief. After drastically changing her lifestyle and reducing stress, she was able to overcome a thirteen-year battle with symptoms. Through naturopathic medicine she has since enjoyed twelve years of complete remission. It was through her own journey that she began to recognize the importance of natural medicine in helping others overcome disease and find a lifestyle that would guide them towards wellness. Being an ND allows her to extend that knowledge and care to others.
Dr Emy aims to find the root cause of the condition, and remove obstacles that intend to impede wellness. She believes in using restorative modalities rather than symptom-based care to treat. Together with the patient in the decision-making process, she creates a treatment plan utilizing the least invasive therapies while also being sensitive to individual lifestyles and financial circumstances. Her knowledge and compassion serve to guide each patient on their individual journey to find success in wellness.
When Dr. Emy is not with patients, she is working on her Doctorate in Chinese Medicine at the Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture. To give back, Dr. Emy is active in global and community medicine with Naturopaths Without Borders in Mexico, Thailand and Haiti. On her days off, she enjoys traveling, going to live music events, as well as outdoor activities, such as hiking, golfing, and camping. She truly enjoys anytime spent out in nature. You can also find her at home relaxing with her 2 cats, Hulk and Tom, reading, doing yoga and cooking.
