Integrative Endocrinology Speakers

Paul Anderson, N.D., is a recognized authority in the field of integrative cancer research and the treatment of chronic diseases, genomic conditions, and auto-immune and infectious disorders. As a naturopath, Dr. Anderson began his career as a family practitioner in Canby and Salem, Oregon. For many years he has trained students and clinicians at a number of naturopathic medical schools and other higher education institutions, with a specialization in intravenous (IV) therapy formulation and infusion techniques as well as clinical approaches to complicated illness.

Most recently Dr. Anderson spent seven years at Bastyr University in Seattle on the faculties of both its School of Naturopathic Medicine and the Bastyr University Research Institute. He was the Chief of Intravenous Services at the Bastyr Integrative Oncology Research Center (BIORC) from 2009-2013, where he remains an adjunct research professor involved in prospective NIH and other grants. As an instructor he continues to provide popular annual board review courses for the leading US and Canadian naturopathic medical schools. After years of private practice in Oregon, Arizona and then during his tenure at Bastyr University, Dr. Anderson established AMSA in 2010, to focus on more intensive patient care and medical research.

As a physician-scientist, Dr. Anderson is interested in immunologic, genomic, and metabolic repair; fields that are considered to be at the leading edge of medical inquiry for many disease processes. His longtime work on the development and standardization of pharmacologically significant micronutrient IV therapies bridges naturopathic to conventional medicine, merging the benefits of both, from diagnosis to treatment, with an expert understanding of the underlying biochemical and genetic causes that contribute to illness. Dr. Anderson has collaborated with many notable physicians, researchers and professors in his career and continues to do so in his current work.

Dr. Anderson’s combined experience in teaching, clinical practice, and research equally informs AMSA’s approach to health care: treating the whole person and not just the disease, with evidence-based integrative medicine that is tailored to each patient’s unique constitution, history, and present needs.
