Dr. Keaton chose to train in medicine to help her patients heal. She has continued to pursue ways outside the mainstream of medicine to help those who need more than a conventional western medical approach. She brings three decades of experience in effective natural therapies to help her patients find solutions to their health concerns.
Her medical degree is from National University of Natural Medicine in 1989. She then trained in Acupuncture and did her residency at the ARE Clinic in Phoenix. In 2009 she began using a low dose of the drug naltrexone. Specifically she has done advanced training in LDN and worked with autoimmune diseases and fibromyalgia with this medication. Over the past years she has been able to help many patients find better lives without the side effects of conventional drug treatment using this medication.
