About Explore Health & Dr. Nelson

William Nelson, NMD, is a naturopathic medical doctor who brings years of medical expertise to his practice, Explore Health, in Flagstaff and Scottsdale, Arizona. Dr. Nelson is heralded as the go-to physician for patients who feel they have exhausted their time and resources attempting to resolve complex health challenges. He is also respected internationally as a preeminent addiction medicine specialist and hosts ”Your Road to Personal Addiction Recovery,” which is one of the most-listened-to podcasts on the matter.

Dr. Nelson has helped patients who feel lost and neglected by the healthcare establishment find hope for over 20 years. Explore Health strives to provide direction to these patients by helping them understand where they are and what they need to do to reorient their journey and find better health.

Once the patient has learned and incorporated the basic elements of health that serve as the foundation of recovery, Dr. Nelson works to create a customized treatment plan that acts as a roadmap for his patients. These detailed directions help many avoid the pitfalls and misdirection that unprepared hikers and mountaineers experience as they try to make it from point A to point B.

Dr. Nelson is unique in the naturopathic profession as he is an expert in several modalities and treatment approaches. Areas of his expertise include addiction medicine, alcohol dependence treatment, regenerative medicine for automobile accidents, back pain, hip pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, and mind-body medicine. Dr. Nelson has also successfully treated many other conditions after patients thought they had exhausted their treatment options with conventional and alternative doctors.

Explore Health has become a bastion for those who suffer from addiction. Dr. Nelson decided to commit significant attention to those who suffer from substance abuse after his daughter had a tumultuous but successful battle with heroin addiction.

For over two decades, Dr. Nelson has consistently helped patients become pain-free and return to the activities they love. He is uniquely qualified in physical medicine, regenerative medicine, and naturopathic therapies that help patients regain their health, vitality, and quality of life. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Nelson and the team at Explore Health, call the office and speak to the friendly staff or book online today.

Collective change

  • Help Us Make a Difference

    With The Collective Change

    When you donate money to a charitable cause, do you know where your money goes? Explore Health Supports Collective Change and here's why!

    Let's say that you make a donation of $15 per year. Each month, $1 of your money goes to a rotating charitable cause, and you get to vote on where you think the money should go. You will be given the opportunity to vote between 3 charitable causes each month, log in to your Collective Change account, and pick your favorite cause- it's that easy! At the end of each month, you will find out which cause won the majority vote based on its members.

    Currently, Collective Change is focused on local causes in the greater Phoenix & Scottsdale Metro Area, but as their community grows, they will expand into more cities, more states, more countries, and, one day, even more planets that we can't wait to help!

    We combined forces to make a revolutionary crowdfunding program for charities, which exists because of generous donations of about a dollar per month. Will you join us and make a difference?
