Dr. Andria Orlowski
Dr. Orlowski is our leading naturopathic physician. At the age of 16, she graduated early from high school and spent a year abroad studying art in Chile. Her first degree was a BA in psychology with a minor in Spanish from Western Connecticut State University. She worked at Fairfield Hills Hospital in Newtown, CT as a Mental Health Worker until she was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome in 1991. Disappointed that she could not will the condition away, Andria searched for alternatives including nutrition, herbs, homeopathy, and Chinese medicine. She traveled to Southeast Asia and South American in search of alternative modalities. Her health finally improved with the use of certain rain forest plants and lifestyle changes. With renewed passion, Andria continued to train in biology as well as massage, acupressure, and cranial sacral therapy, eventually moving to Arizona to study naturopathic medicine and acupuncture. In 1997, she earned her Doctorate degree in naturopathic medicine and, in 1998, a Master's Degree in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, both from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine. Dr. Orlowski uses the full power of her education and passion for healing to help her patients achieve optimal health and balance in their lives. It is her goal that all her patients achieve their higher visions and goals without physical or emotional hindrances.
Dr. Orlowski has practiced at the A.R.E. Medical Clinic and the Southwest Naturopathic Medical Center. She has taught classes in nutrition, environmental medicine, amazon herbs, acupuncture, and naturopathic medicine at numerous institutions including the Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture, Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, and the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts.
