Dr. Weyrich

Naturopathic Medical Doctor

Dr. Weyrich treats disorders associated with the digestive tract and food sensitivities - from GERD down to hemorrhoids, thyroid, adrenal, and sex hormone imbalances, toxicity, and chronic pain syndromes - using naturopathic and functional medical approaches.

There is a growing body of evidence that disorders as varied as autism, attention deficit/hyperactivity, epilepsy, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, arthritis and other autoimmune diseases, irritable bowel, inflammatory bowel, and other chronic and degenerative diseases share common features of gut dysbiosis, leaky gut, food sensitivities, nutritional deficiencies, hormone imbalances, and environmental toxicity. As such, these disorders all respond to variations on the same functional medicine diagnostic work-up and naturopathic treatment protocols.

Dr. Weyrich earned a PhD in Organic Chemistry from the University of Tennessee and graduated from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine. He is licensed to practice as a Naturopathic Medical Doctor (NMD) in Arizona.


Dr. Weyrich has been trained in the Neuro-Research protocols which may benefit a broad range of neurological and mental issues by balancing neurotransmitter and sulfur-containing amino acid levels in the body, particularly serotonin, dopamine, and cysteine, through targeted nutrition guided by lab testing. Dr. Weyrich now offers these nutritional protocols as a complement to other therapies.

Biofeedback has also shown to benefit a broad range of neurological and mental issues. Biofeedback techniques include Heart Rate Variability training, thermal and galvanic skin response training, and Neuro-feedback. Neurofeedback is a form of biofeedback based on using Quantitative Electro-encephalography (QEEG) to obtain a "brain-map" of the patient, which is then compared to a database of "normal" brain-maps of age-and-gender-matched individuals. Neurofeedback techniques are then used to teach the patient how to use neuroplasticity to "restructure" the activity of his/her own brain to match the corresponding normative database brain-maps. Dr. Weyrich has been certified in Neuro-feedback since 2008, and recently he completed an additional residency training program at ADD Clinic of Scottsdale, AZ. Dr. Weyrich now offers biofeedback and neurofeedback training sessions as a complement to other therapies.

In addition, Dr. Weyrich offers a variety of bio-identical hormone balancing protocols that benefit both men and women.

Neurotransmitter balancing, biofeedback/neurofeedback, and bio-identical hormone balancing all act on the human system in different ways to optimize homeostasis and balance, and can be expected to be synergistic with each other, as well as with conventional treatments.

Note that brain-mapping, neurofeedback, biofeedback, nutritional supplements and testing are not covered by most insurance policies, but may be eligible for payment out of Health Care Savings Accounts.
