Docēre rāphè: Docēre is Latin for doctor which is translated, teacher. Rāphè is Hebrew for physician which is translated, healer. Dr. Goodyear’s passion for Wellness began with his own 100-pound post-college football career weight loss. Dr. Goodyear is dedicated to disease prevention, disease resolution, and to the Wellness Lifestyle through a solution-based, Integrative Medicine approach founded in science.
My personal philosophy and aim is to lead a life of balance. The old Greeks and Hippocrates, the Father of Modern Medicine, said it: “Nothing in excess, take the middle path and everything in its right measure.” I believe that the purpose of any healer, any doctor, is to teach that, “we heal ourselves through the way we live our lives every day”.
RN, BSN, MSN
Originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, I moved to Arizona in 2013 with my husband and two Boston Terriers to attend nursing school at Brookline College. While there I received both my Bachelors and Master’s degree in Nursing. My experience includes the acute care setting (med/surg, progressive care), regenerative medicine, and home health.
In 2010, I received my RN from the University of Alaska, Anchorage. Throughout my career I have specialized in geriatric nursing with an emphasis on symptom management and chronic illness.
Two years ago, my husband passed away after undergoing treatment for cancer. After that experience, I decided I wanted to dedicate my time working in holistic cancer care. I’ve learned the benefits of this approach which is a combination of the wellness of the mind, body, as well as spirit, which is all needed to promote healing, whether it is for prevention or health maintenance.
As an I-ACT certified Colon Hydrotherapist, I know the power of combining nutrition and naturopathic modalities to create an environment in the body conducive to health and healing. For six years I have been practicing colon hydrotherapy alongside many passionate practitioners and doctors.
