Duncan Heard, was born and raised in Bryan/College Station, Texas where the predominant health professionals were medical doctors or chiropractors. Upon entering college Duncan felt he wanted to pursue a career in the medical field but did not want to be a conventional medical doctor and set his path toward chiropractic school.
While earning his Bachelor’s of Science in Nutrition Sciences at Texas A&M University he discovered naturopathic medicine and realized it encompassed what he had envisioned himself to be as a chiropractor but more.
Immediately upon graduating from TAMU Duncan entered naturopathic medical school at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, AZ. Naturopathic doctors are taught botanical (herbal) medicine, homeopathy, environmental medicine, acupuncture, hydrotherapy, physical medicine (think chiropractic), nutrition, mind/body medicine, pharmacology, and minor surgery. Duncan naturally gravitated towards homeopathy and has spent many hours learning from nationally known and respected doctors in the field of homeopathy.
After seeing naturopathic medicine help people with “incurable” diseases recover their health Duncan felt the need to bring this kind of medicine to Texas. He and his wife have three daughters who enjoy taking walks together, riding bikes and just being as happy as possible!
