Dr. Jillian Smithers is a licensed Naturopathic Medical Doctor and Primary Care Physician in the state of Arizona. She earned her Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine. Originally from Nova Scotia, Canada, Dr. Smithers received her Bachelor of Science with a double major in Psychology, with a concentration in Neuroscience, and Biology.
Dr. Smithers’ inspiration for pursuing a career in the medical field came after she cared for her father throughout his battle with Stage 4 cancer. At the time of his diagnosis, he was given 6 weeks to live, but with integrative cancer treatments he enjoyed another 2.5 years of life. He passed away when Dr. Smithers was 13. Afterward, she was introduced to naturopathic medicine through her own chronic health conditions and decided to become a doctor and move across the continent to Arizona.
Dr. Smithers has an extensive background in research, which she applies to her treatments and approach to health and healing. She uses an individualized approach with each patient, including routine and specialty lab testing, such as Food Allergy Panels, adrenal function tests, micronutrient and neurotransmitter testing. Dr. Smithers' approach enables her to determine the cause of a patient's disease process and address the underlying imbalance in a way that is both effective and individualized for each patient. With this approach, she ensures that her patients are treated as a whole person and not just a list of symptoms.
Dr. Smithers specializes in hormonal imbalances, infertility, and medical aesthetics (anti-aging therapies). She prefers to use IV Nutrient Therapy, intramuscular nutrient injections, botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, acupuncture, and bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to treat her patients. In addition to her formal training at SCNM, she has received advanced training in natural fertility treatments and medical aesthetics procedures, including micro-needling, Platelet Rich Plasma Facial Rejuvenation, and Botox Cosmetic injections.
