Dr. Weyrich is a physician licensed to practice as a Naturopathic Medical Doctor (NMD) in Arizona.
He provides precision evidence-based diagnosis and treatment using the best of genomics,
functional, and naturopathic medicine to patients who choose to self-pay for services not covered
by insurance, so that his patients can optimize their health, vitality, and longevity.
He has been in private practice in Arizona since his graduation from Southwest College of
Naturopathic Medicine (Tempe, AZ) in 2007, and currently offers his services in Payson and Phoenix,
He also earned a PhD in Organic Chemistry from the University of Tennessee (1981),
and is ABD in Computer Science and Engineering from Auburn University (1984).
Dr. Weyrich is a board Certified Health Practitioner Diplomate in the Clinical Science of Anti-Aging

He is also certified in functional diagnostic medicine by the Functional Medicine University.
He is a member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging (A4M)

There is a growing body of evidence that disorders as varied as aging, traumatic brain injury,
post-concussive syndrome, autism, AD(H)D, anxiety, depression, epilepsy, stroke, fibromyalgia,
chronic pain, chronic fatigue, arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, autoimmune diseases,
irritable bowel, inflammatory bowel, Alzheimer's, diabetes, as well as other chronic and degenerative
diseases, all share common features of hormone imbalances (thyroid, adrenal, sex, growth hormone),
neurotransmitter imbalances, brainwave imbalances, immune system imbalances, inflammation,
nutritional imbalances, gut dysbiosis, leaky gut, food sensitivities, and environmental toxicity.
Combining several different treatment techniques in a systems approach is often synergistic
and achieves far better results than can be obtained from specialists who focus on only one modality.
As such, these disorders all respond to variations on the same genomic testing, precision functional
medicine diagnostic work-up, and naturopathic treatment protocols using bio-identical hormones,
amino acid testing and balancing, neurofeedback, nutrition, and immune system balancing.
When appropriate, Dr. Weyrich also prescribes conventional medications to provide immediate
relief while underlying causes are addressed more naturally. In some cases, Dr. Weyrich also provides
acupuncture, spinal manipulation and other physical modalities.
Because Dr. Weyrich practices "outside the box" of conventional (allopathic) western medicine, as
defined "by the book" of the insurance companies, most of the treatments he provides are
not covered by insurance.
Rather than compete with conventional allopathic doctors who can accept insurance, Dr. Weyrich
focuses on providing complementary and alternative care that is not covered by such insurance.
Dr. Weyrich encourages all his patients to also have a conventional allopathic doctor
(MD, DO, NP, etc), so that they can access primary care services covered by insurance.
Dr. Weyrich is happy to coordinate care with conventional allopathic doctors, but generally speaking,
these doctors are constrained by your insurance company to only order tests and treatments that are
approved by your insurance company, and cannot or will not order additional tests suggested by
