Center for Integrative Medicine




Naturopathic physician Ann Charlotte Valentin works in integrative medicine and family health care and graduated from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2016.

She has completed two years of postgraduate work in a family clinic in Prescott and has recently opened her own practice, Center for Integrative Medicine, in north Phoenix.

Valentin was guided to become a physician in her 50s after coming close to death in the emergency room in 1992 when she hemorrhaged after her third child was born and almost lost her life. Shortly thereafter, she became deathly ill with a serious blood disorder and was walking a fine line between life and death for the next several years. After she healed, she knew she had to become a doctor in order to help other people heal.

Her focus is on healing patients and finding the true cause of their symptoms and illnesses. As she grew up in a family of doctors, she understood from an early age the importance of holistic health and spends 75 minutes with her patients during their first visit in order to understand both what ails them physically as well as mentally and spiritually. Valentin is aware of how vital it is to build a good relationship with her patients in order to establish a partnership in their quest for health and healing.

Valentin specializes in integrative medicine, utilizing her training in nutrition, acupuncture, botanical medicine, homeopathy and pharmaceuticals. She specializes in bioidentical hormone replacement for men and women and has postgraduate training with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine in bioidentical hormones. She also sees many patients with thyroid problems, digestive issues, anxiety, depression, heavy metal toxicity, and many other chronic conditions and autoimmune diseases. As Valentin works in family health care, she sees many patients of all different age groups with different pathologies.

Valentin also offers free lectures every other Tuesday at her clinic on different topics, as well as free speaking engagements at various functions in the community.

 

Center for Integrative Medicine is located at 16421 N. Tatum Blvd., Ste. 129, in Phoenix. To schedule an appointment, call 602-888-2320. For more information, visit cinmed.org.
