β€œI am so thankful I found Dr. Emily Colwell! Β 

I went initially to discuss infertility (i had not had a cycle in 8 years) and after about a year of working together it returned. Β I few months later I was pregnant and currently have a beautiful little girl. Β 

She did not jump recklessly into fixing the presenting problem, but looked to the roots/source and helped me slowly build health in my body so that when I did start my period I almost felt like my body was glowing.

She listened closely, carefully explained her hypothesis and recommendations for treatment, and offered solutions no other doctor had ever presented to me. Β She was kind and visiting her office felt like stepping into compassion and care. Β I highly recommend her.”

β€œI had struggled with major stomach issues my whole life. I’d exhausted all the options that “regular” medicine could provide and continued to feel just worse and worse. I’d had multiple CT scans and colonoscopies and no one knew what to do. They just kept ordering more tests. When I came to Dr. Colwell, I was nearly certain that nothing she could do would help, but I was desperate. From my first visit with her, she told me that the process wouldn’t be quick but assured me that we would eventually fix my issues. It did take a while, but she was persistent, optimistic and confident that we’d get to the bottom of it. I can honestly say, I no longer have any of my previous issues and my stomach is finally normal. I thought I was going to suffer for the rest of my life and I’m eternally grateful that because of Dr. Colwell, I know what normal feels like. She is amazing – Seattle’s loss was Asheville’s gain. I was very sad to see her go but continue to see her over the phone.”

β€œAfter several visits to other doctors to diagnose and treat a complicated and ongoing illness, I decided to try a naturopath. I’ve heard from friends that many naturopaths are also comfortable with traditional “Western” medicine and will treat you using techniques and methods that incorporate a wide range of approaches. From supplements to antibiotics, you’re covered.

Dr. Leslie Meyers was thoughtful, thorough, and easy to talk to. She took time to answer all of my questions, and even took time to call me on the phone in between office visits and talk about my symptoms. When she thought we needed a second opinion, she referred me to a urologist.

I’m glad I chose this office and I’d recommend it to all of my friends.”

β€œDr Meyers listened closely to my needs and helped come up with solutions that I felt comfortable with, since I am more accustomed to more mainstream than naturopathic medicine. Β I was pleased both with her care and with the results.”

β€œAfter visits with multiple doctors and specialists for pain I was having, I was told I should go on an anti-depressant so I wouldn’t “notice the pain anymore.” This is when I decided to try a naturopath, who I anticipated wouldn’t like that option any more then I did. Dr. Leslie Meyers listened thoughtfully to my symptoms, making me feel for the first time in the process that someone believed me.I have never felt so comfortable with any doctor. There came a point that I believed that I would have to live in pain the rest of my life and gave up going to doctor’s, but Dr. Meyers continued to contact me with thoughts on my case and coaxed me into coming back in. She was able to diagnose me when no one else was. She has been the most thoughtful, dedicated, and well-rounded doctor I have ever worked with. She gives equal thought to naturopathic and traditional medical treatments, explains benefits and pitfalls thoughtfully, and makes you feel comfortable making your medical decisions. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”
