Dr. Scott Graves has a bachelor’s degree in health studies and master’s degree from The Florida College of Integrative Medicine. He also has a master’s degree from Liberty University in counseling and psychology. He is a doctor of Oriental medicine and is also an acupuncture physician.

About 11 years ago, someone he cared about was sick with a severe case of ADHD, migraines, asthma, breast tumors and chronic skins rashes. The medication offered relief for one thing, but would cause many other side effects. After having a change of heart, he decided to try anything and everything to help her get well. Juicing, acupuncture, nutritional and supplementation therapy, along with emotional processing were key to helping her heal completely from every one of her health problems. Dr. Scott also healed from 11 years of heavy depression by learning how to release emotions from the body and eating the right things to decrease brain inflammation.
