Natural Awakenings South Jersey

Merchantville Medical Wellness Welcomes New Practitioner

Houtaneh Houtan, NMD, has joined Dr. Jennifer Phillips at Merchantville Medical Wellness in offering naturopathic medicine to South Jersey residents. Originally from South Jersey, Houtan is a naturopathic physician specializing in preventive medicine, endocrinology, gastroenterology, cardiovascular health and kidney disease. 

Prior to attending naturopathic medical school in Arizona, Houtan studied biochemistry at Syracuse University as an undergraduate. It was during these pivotal years that Houtan discovered the need for holistic medicine. She struggled with hormonal concerns, which largely went unaddressed and misdiagnosed and which ultimately led her to the world of holistic nutrition. It was with the help of highly nutrient-dense and low-toxin foods that she was able regain the majority of her health, and more importantly, realize the critical role that natural medicine can play in the realm of reversing disease. Her favorite medicines include clean nutrition, botanicals and homeopathy.
