Dr. Garrett Smith
Garrett Smith NMD CSCS BS is a native of Tucson, Arizona and holds naturopathic medical licenses in both Arizona and Washington. In addition to his education in naturopathic medicine, his continuing education has run the gamut from functional medicine to sports medicine to energy medicine, which he then utilizes in the combination he deems most suitable for each individual.
To build his deep personal knowledge of chronic stressors and the effects work, school, relationships, children, nutrition, and exercise has upon them, he has competed in sports ranging from powerlifting to triathlons, done diets ranging from the raw meat-based Primal Diet to vegetarianism, earned training certifications ranging from Olympic weightlifting to road cycling, co-founded the first CrossFit gym in Arizona while he was attending the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, and is currently raising two kids with his lovely wife while running a medical practice.
Dr. Smith considers one of his greatest talents to be an ability to assimilate the huge amount of health information available and distill it into something that is approachable by the layperson. In his spare time, he somehow still enjoys exercise as his only hobby. Learn more about him and his practice HERE or check him out on FACEBOOK.
