Client Success Stories


“I can’t speak highly enough of the life-changing results that I’ve received from working with Dr. Meyers. I feel like I am a different human being. Overall, my anxiety and depression are no longer an issue. My menstrual cycle is working like clockwork for maybe the first time ever. I’m just thrilled with the whole experience. ”

— Erin, Charlotte, NC


Client Success Stories


“Before Waterleaf, I was stressed, anxious, didn’t sleep well, and struggled to lose weight. After Waterleaf, my sleep improved almost immediately, which was a bit like a stepping stone to everything else: less anxiety, weight loss (14 pounds!), and even my sex drive has improved, which I know my husband is very happy about.”

Katie, Sylva, NC


Client Success Stories


“Today I have so much more energy and life in me that I think I was missing six weeks ago before I started the program. I notice a stronger passion for life and happiness, more joy in the things that I do, and more energy. And I’m not just following some medical one-size-fits-all prescription for people with certain conditions. I felt like Waterleaf gave me choice and freedom in what I do, and total support in those choices.”

Carole, Spindale, NC


Client Success Stories


“I was really at the end of my rope trying to figure out what to do. I tried everything to get my energy back. Finally, I found Waterleaf, and the difference in my health is like night and day. I feel so much better every day. My ‘get up and go’ is back. I don’t have as many negative thoughts running through my mind. Everyone should feel this way. ”

Client Success Stories


“I’ve been to a lot of naturopathic physicians over the past ten years, and some just fill you up with a bunch of supplements and send you on your way. I was afraid that that might happen here, but it wasn’t. Waterleaf was just a super well-run program and an overall great experience.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Waterleaf's services covered by my health insurance?

Insurance doesn’t cover naturopathic medicine in North Carolina. Insurance is generally for drugs, procedures, surgeries, and emergencies and we do something different.

Do I have to come into the office in person or can we work together remotely?

We work with people both in person and virtually so we are happy to see you remotely! Many of our practice members see us initially for an in-person evaluation and then do a combination of in-person and virtual visits. Others come in person for everything! For practice members who are entirely virtual, we can easily ship lab kits, supplements and do visits over Zoom or phone.

Are you able to prescribe medications?

While we were able to prescribe pharmaceuticals in Seattle (where we practiced for many years), in the state of North Carolina, Naturopathic Doctors can’t prescribe pharmaceuticals. This doesn’t get in our way as our first choice is to use non-pharmaceutical tools to promote healing.

Can you be my primary care doctor (PCP)?

No, we don’t practice primary care. Our goal is to help you feel healthy, resilient, and confident in your health so that you only need to see your primary care for your annual visit or urgent medical issues.
