Dr. Evelyn Cordova
Ms. Cordova began her journey into Naturopathic Medicine after standard of care treatments for endometriosis and depression only palliated her symptoms. She found that natural supplements and strengthening the mind-body connection revolutionized her life. It was obvious she had to learn more and then help others.
It started with a Masters in Education in Physical Education from The University of Houston. A year after graduating in 2012 it was obvious that healing involved more than the physical body. She completed a master’s in Transpersonal Studies at Atlantic University. Through the teachings of Edgar Cayce she learned how multi-dimensional humans are and decided to devote her life to healing herself and others.
After graduating from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine it was clear she had to go into practice to share her knowledge of women’s health, acupuncture, botanical medicine, colonics, hydrotherapy, and IV therapies. After a career as a high school teacher and working in retail, she has found where she belongs. She wants to empower people to be the best version of themselves with a doctor who is patient, caring and devoted to each one of her patient’s journeys.
