Meet Dr. Meghana Thanki of Second Nature Clinic in Old Town Scottsdale

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dr. Meghana Thanki.

Dr. Thanki, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I am a naturopathic physician specializing in Ayurvedic Medicine. Over the last 10 years I have been honing in on my skill set as far as it pertains to treating disease from an Ayurvedic perspective. We treat all conditions but have especially great results when it pertains to digestive distress from bloating, gas, heartburn, constipation etc, as well as success with skin conditions that have failed all other conventional treatments. We also serve as a natural hub for all other natural remedies including vitamin shots, IV therapy, facial aesthetic, medical marijuana certifications, massages, etc. We also have a weekly happy hour called ZEN LOUNGE every Thursday from 5-7 pm where all of our services are offered at happy hour pricing. -A happy hour for your mind body and soul.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has not been super smooth. It has taken a lot of understanding in terms of branding, mission, vision etc. I started out with a focus only on ayurvedic therapies and then slowly brought back a lot of my naturopathic training to be a full fledge naturopathic practice.

Second Nature Clinic – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Second Nature Clinic is a Natural Medicine hub located in Old town Scottsdale offering Naturopathic & Ayurvedic Medical Therapies. We bring a personalized approach to eliminating health conditions, restoring balance, and transforming your life. Some of the most common ailments addressed by Second Nature Clinic are skin conditions, long-standing gut issues, depression, anxiety, and insomnia. As our name suggests, it is SNC’s hope that everyone would adopt a healthy lifestyle that ultimately becomes “second nature.”

Most proud of offering a full Ayurvedic clinic with all of the time-honored healing treatments and detoxification treatments being done in a very authentic manner.

Our Zen lounge experience is also very unique in the way that we really want to give importance to understanding the importance of self – care. These happy hour nights allow individuals to give a couple hours to self-care and a time where they can take part in mini massages, meditation, getting a vitamin shot or IV drip, developing a yoga practice, adorning oneself, playing games, and building a community.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
The publication of my book , THE AYURVEDIC LENS and being able to work full time for the past 1 year and build my practice.
