About William D Nelson, NMD

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.
