DOCTORS of the DESERT

Getting to the Root of the Problem

Dr. Angelina Alejandro, NMD of Core Optimal Health Solutions AS THE DAUGHTER of a dietician, Dr. Angelina Alejandro grew up eating healthy, whole foods and talking about vitamins and minerals. The first thing any one will notice about Alejandro is her passion to change people’s lives. A native of Arizona, Alejandro earned a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture — specifically Dietetics — at the University of Arizona. She later graduated from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe where she became a licensed Naturopathic Medical Doctor (NMD). “As a NMD, I can write prescription medications; however, most people come to me so they can get off of their medications due to bad side effects. I address the true underlying cause of chronic diseases rather than removing or masking a patient’s symptoms like modern medicine does,” Alejandro explains. Medications — while necessary given the right time and place — often create a false security that slowly destroys quality of life, including finances. Fueled by her passion and knowledge of plants and foods as medicine, Alejandro uses a proactive approach to help people without hurting them. “My goal is to treat the whole person. [My team and I] work together to get to the root of the problem and restore health to the system. By doing this, my patients have longevity, quality of life and can fulfill their dreams,” she says. Alejandro has been in practice for six years now. She became the owner of Scottsdale’s Core Optimal Health Solutions (COHS) this past January. “[Moving to COHS] was the best move I ever made because I can ultimately get patients better with my team and the programs that I have to offer.” The COHS team believes in the body’s innate ability to heal itself from the inside out. By providing wellness programs that utilize the four pillars to health — nutrition, detoxification, hormone balancing and fitness — Alejandro and her team empower and coach patients to take care of themselves the natural way. “We at COHS provide education, materials, classes, resources and hands-on demonstrations on various health

subjects, along with taking step-by-step action.” She adds, “This is why our patients do so well.” Alejandro also offers patients a myriad of services, including preventative care and concerns with belly fat, weight gain, stress, fatigue, diabetes, thyroid conditions, cardiovascular disease, hormone imbalances, erectile dysfunction, high blood pressure, sleep disturbances, digestive issues, desires to get off medications and many more. “My team and I proactively help create individualized care with resources, support and tools patients need to succeed,” Alejandro states. And succeed they do! Alejandro’s dedication to holistic care is evident with every patient she guides and supports toward better health. “I love seeing my patients transform into the people they want to become — to be healthy and stay health long term.” TO LEARN MORE ABOUT CORE OPTIMAL HEALTH SOLUTIONS, CALL 480.418.2653 OR VISIT WWW.COREOHS.COM.
