Meet our staff:

Dr. Sara Hazel
Functional Doctor
I have been a Naturopathic doctor and educator since 1998. Through private practices, formal classroom teaching, teaching in medical centers, seminars, and talks I have taught and treated thousands of students and patients over two decades in natural medicine. I have a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine from The National College of Naturopathic Medicine. I have also been a full-time professor of clinical and academic studies at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine for a decade and served as Interim Chair of General Medicine and on the SCNM Board of Trustees. I have taught in massage schools and medical imaging programs, and have additional training in acupuncture, Qi Gong, Oriental Medicine, and various massage techniques from the Oregon School of Massage and the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. I am a certified Yoga Instructor and registered with Yoga Alliance. I am a graduate of the National College of Naturopathic Medicine’s Qi Gong Certificate Program. My mission is to have each one of us actualize the power and potential we were born with.  If we can unlock that power we will benefit more than just ourselves. We can become a force of balance and change and grace on the planet.

Why I love being a Naturopathic Physician

The heart of functional medicine is the principle of empowering individuals to correct and restore themselves through self-knowledge and working intelligently with nature. There is no greater reward than participating in someone’s return and rediscovery of their own vibrancy and power.

What I love outside of work

Meditation, sauna, COLD PLUNGE, Yoga, Qi Gong, traveling, my kid, my off-grid retreat I’m creating in Arizona.

Why I work at Wisdom
