About Dr. David C. Powell, ND


Dr. Powell graduated from Bastyr University's School of Naturopathic Medicine. It is a fully accredited, 4 year, naturopathic medical school located near Seattle, Washington. He did his 2 years of clinical training primarily at the Bastyr Center for Naturopathic Medicine in Seattle.


In his former profession, Dr. Powell was an environmental scientist that worked on the clean-up and remediation of toxic waste sites (called Superfund Sites). He received his MS in Marine Science and his BS in Environmental Science from The College of William and Mary, located in Williamsburg, Virginia. He decided to take his 8 years of environmental experience and apply it to a particular branch of Naturopathic Medicine (Environmental Medicine) and the "clean-up" and detoxification of our planet on a smaller, human scale.


After visiting San Diego in 2007, he fell in love with the city and knew this is where he would want to open his own practice. In late 2008, he decided to move here and open Chaparral Naturopathic Medicine. Hormone replacement, weight loss, detoxification of functional organ systems and the return to optimal health are his primary focus.
