  • Dr. Travis Mowery

  • Dr. Mowery is a licensed Naturopathic Physician in Arizona and a certified Vitalist by the Naturopathic Medicine Institute where he has been mentored by several elders of the Naturopathic Profession. He graduated from medical school at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, AZ. He has a Bachelors in Health Science with an emphasis in public health from Brigham Young University Idaho. He loves history, classic cars, the outdoors, is an Eagle Scout, and currently serves in the youth program for his local church congregation.

    Since his youth, Dr. Mowery has always wanted to support his family by helping others. He discovered naturopathic medicine after becoming chronically ill during his first year in college. After seeing multiple doctors, he was dismayed by the limited options he was presented with for treatment. He was saddened that he not only wasn’t healing after following every recommendation his doctors gave him but was suffering new pains and other side-effects from the prescribed medications. He thought there had to be another option. After many prayers and a little research, he found naturopathic medicine.

    After seeing a naturopathic physician who looked at him holistically, he finally began to heal. He was surprised by how simple and effective the treatments were.  He learned that the body can heal itself if you provide it with the right tools and reduce the obstacles that are preventing the body from healing.

    This experience is what motivated Dr. Mowery to change his career path and go to medical school. He loves working with his patients as their guide to regaining their health. In addition to conventional treatments, Dr. Mowery is trained in acupuncture, herbs, botanical medicine, spinal and bone and soft tissue adjustments, nutrition, nutraceuticals, mind-body medicine, emotional clearing, and muscle testing.

    Interest in helping patients with cancer:

    When Dr. Mowery was a teenager, he gave his mother a shoulder massage and discovered several large lumps. After an initial incorrect diagnosis, she was given a diagnosis of leukemia. Dr. Mowery’s own health issues described above led to several blessings, one of which was a greater knowledge of natural health that led to his mother’s remission. As an interesting note it’s been over 15 years since that initial diagnosis and his mother just recently had her first checkup in several years in which her primary care physician couldn’t believe she no longer had any swollen lymph nodes and hasn’t seen an oncologist almost a decade. As many patients do, she never told them the natural medicines she used to support her body to heal.
