About Us

Iris Bell, MD, PhD, is a psychiatrist, university professor, and has
been a researcher in areas related to complementary and alternative medicine for 30 years. She was chosen as one of the Best Doctors in the Pacific region of the US in 1996 and in the US in 1998.

Dr. Bell has served on the faculties at Harvard Medical School,
University of California San Francisco, and the University of Arizona. She graduated magna cum laude in biology from Harvard University and then received her PhD in Neuro- and Biobehavioral Sciences and MD from Stanford University. Her psychiatry internship and residency were at the University of California–San Francisco, and she is Board certified in Psychiatry with Added Qualification in Geriatric Psychiatry. She is licensed to practice conventional medicine in Arizona and California. She is also nationally certified in biofeedback, a fellow of the American College of Nutrition, and a licensed physician in homeopathy/alternative medicine in Arizona.

She has published scores of papers and book chapters on her clinical
research in addition to a monograph on environmental illness. On a
lighter note, she wrote the funny, touching, and inspirational Chew on
Things – It Helps You Think: Words of Wisdom from a Worried Canine

to celebrate her beloved soft-coated wheaten terrier Casey's life.

Throughout his life, Casey himself benefited from both Western and alternative
medical help in surviving a series of health crises, from eating poison
mushrooms in the backyard that sprang up overnight during his puppy
time, to curing autoimmune hemolytic anemia in his old age.

Her passion is to teach people who find themselves with a chronic
illness and are at the start of their own difficult journey home to
themselves and to better health — a learning experience for us all. She
teaches, writes, and lives in Tucson, Arizona with her three dogs –
Rosie, Harry, and Charlie.
