About Dr. Lan

I practice family medicine, which includes working with children, adolescents and adults. I'm passionate about treating chronic conditions including, but not limited to, chronic fatigue syndrome and the various mental health conditions that often coincide: depression, anxiety and insomnia. I am trained in the modalities of homeopathy, nutrition and dietary counseling, herbal medicine, mind/body medicine, and lifestyle coaching. I continue to keep up-to-date in the latest advancements of naturopathic medicine and I live by the lifestyle suggestions and natural treatments that I recommend.

I have had my own struggles with chronic fatigue syndrome, anxiety and insomnia over the years. After searching for a cure for these conditions, I finally found treatments that addressed the root causes of my ailments and was able to heal from them all. Today I'm eager to share these treatments with others, helping people to regain their health and ability to thrive.

 

Philosophy

I am dedicated to helping you and your family find balance so that you are supported in your health and healing. I place great emphasis on identifying potential underlying causes of illness by using forms of medicine (both natural and integrative) that address these causes and move you toward renewed health. Treatment plans are highly individualized, taking into account the whole of who you are, from your physical symptoms, to emotional and mental symptoms, to your home and work environments, to the satisfaction of your relationships, to your nutrition status, among other lifestyle factors. Treatment plans created address you as a whole person and provide a blueprint for your path to vibrant and sustained health.  

 

Education and Training

Dr. Lan received her Bachelor of Science degree in zoology with an emphasis in ecology from Colorado State University. She has been an avid and lifelong student of science, biology, health, alternative and integrative medicines, nutrition and homeopathy. After graduating college, she worked for an alternative health company where she was first introduced to homeopathy and inspired by the use of alternative medicine. She then went on to work for a company that produced herbal tinctures and salves for pregnant and breastfeeding women and her passion for holistic medicine grew. Soon after, she attended Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine (SCNM) in Tempe, Arizona where she graduated with honors. Dr. Lan is a board-certified naturopathic physician and maintains a private practice in Scottsdale, Arizona. She also teaches pediatric clinical rotations at SCNM’s Hamilton School clinic, as well as a general family practice rotation at the Changing Lives Center, a rehabilitation center established by the Phoenix Rescue Mission for women recovering from drug and alcohol abuse, homelessness, domestic violence and PTSD.
