Meet Dr. Hoover
Stuart R. Hoover, NHD, DM(P), BCIH is the founder of Essential2Health Advanced Natural Health Care Center.
I have been in the health care field over two decades and spent my initial years involved in Hospital Administration and the Physical/Occupational Rehabilitation field. Over the years I began to realize how rapidly health care was changing and there seemed to be little to no focus on wellness or prevention of disease, rather more advanced methods of diagnosing and managing disease. Over 80% of chronic disease in our country including diabetes, obesity, heart disease, auto-immune disease and even cancer are preventable and directly linked to our lifestyle.
I knew there had to be a better way to address these chronic health problems and turned my attention toward the field of Complementary and Functional Health. Over the next few years I noticed an incredible turnaround in my personal health as I began to implement healthier lifestyle changes. I realized that there was more to this exciting field and decided to redirect my career towards the Complementary and Functional Health Field.
I have completed several degree programs in the field of Natural Health Sciences which include studies in Functional Nutrition, Herbology, Homeopathy, Bio-Energetic Health, Functional Health, Dietary Supplementation, Healthy Lifestyle Management and Pastoral Medicine. I also provide consultation and nutritional advice to several large nutrition and supplement companies along with co-hosting many national radio shows regarding nutrition.
At Essential2Health Advanced Natural Health Center, we utilize nutrition as the base of all our programs, while integrating supplementation, homeopathy, herbology, bio-energy work, and other natural healing methods to help our clients improve their health.
