Naturopathic treatment of thyroid disorders

Dr. Quintanar specializes in the treatment of thyroid disorders. After having experienced a rare thyroid cancer, Hurthle Cell Carcinoma, overcoming her cancer through conventional and naturopathic medical therapies, she is now a cancer survivor. The treatment of thyroid disorders has become her passion.  With 56 million Americans that have thyroid disorders, it has become her mission to assess and treat the 59 chronic debilitating diseases associated with low thyroid function.

Many individuals have been diagnosed with one of these 59 chronic debilitating diseases, such as diabetes, headaches, migraines, tinnitus, high cholesterol, infertility, obesity, dementia, fibromyalgia, arthritis, vascular disease and cancer.  Untreated subclinical low thyroid function doubles the risk of developing Alzheimer's and can lead to an early death.   The largest increase of cancer in the USA is thyroid cancer.  

Dr. Quintanar is the consulting physician on thyroid disorders for Nitek Medical an innovative company that invented the Thyroflex device to test thyroid function with an accuracy of 98% as compared to standard blood tests.   Pristine Naturopathic Medicine provides the THYROFLEX  test for diagnosing and monitoring thyroid disorders.

Naturopathic Pain relief

Everyone experiences pain at some time in their life.  But chronic pain can be debilitating and can decrease our quality of life.  We don’t have to live with pain.  Pain is a way the body is telling us that something is not correct and needs to be adjusted.  Sometimes chiropractic treatments help.  At Pristine Naturopathic Medicine, PAIN RELIEF is offered.  Non-invasive therapies are available to treat pain:  Scenar Therapy, Wei Herbal patches, Mesotherapy and trigger point injections are available for treating pain. Why so many choices of pain therapy?  Because everyone is different and not all patients respond to the same pain therapy.

Other Naturopathic Medicine Specialties

Dr. Quintanar’s other areas of expertise include: adrenal disorders, cancer support and chronic illnesses.

Background and Academic Credentials

Dr. Noemi Quintanar is graduated from the University of Arizona with a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology and a Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology including pre-med studies. She became a Registered Microbiologist (RM) and as a Medical Technologist was a member of the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP).

After working in the medical field for many years, Dr. Quintanar questioned the health care and treatments conventional medicine had to offer.  Her observation was that patients did not heal nor were they cured.  Their health status did not improve and often got worse, even after several pharmaceutical medications.  Her interest in seeking other views on medical therapies and treatments for herself and family, led her to the discovery Naturopathic Medicine & Integrative Medicine.  

She discovered the healing power of nature and the power of the doctor as teacher. She learned to use healing methods without harm, the innate ability of the human body to heal itself, and ways of treating the cause.  These principles resonated with her intuition which lead to her study of Naturopathic Medicine at one of six accredited Naturopathic Medical Schools in the US and Canada.  Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine is 4 year program which trains students in pharmaceuticals and natural therapies.  She received her naturopathic medical degree from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine located in Tempe, AZ.  

Dr. Quintanar taught Nutrition at the Arizona School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Tucson, AZ.
