Today we’d like to introduce you to Dr. Steven Sorr.
Dr. Sorr, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
When I set out to open Source of Health, I had a clear vision to improve healthcare by helping people look and feel better without drugs or surgery. Our country is sick and going about it in the same way as we have, clearly isn’t working. So to take on this monumental task, I sought out naturopathic medicine as a base of my medical training. Prior to doing so, I had been teaching yoga and saw so many people get better just by moving their bodies in a clear manner with a mindful approach. This foundation has shaped the entire medical practice at Source of Health.
While in medical school, I sought out additional conferences around the country focused in regenerative and functional medicine where I learned incredible tools that aligned with the vision I was building at Source of Health. Regenerative medicine harnesses the healing ability within our body and applies it to damaged, degenerating areas such as joint with osteoarthritis. Functional medicine is the process of restoring the biochemistry of one’s body with nutrition, botanicals, and sometimes bio-identical hormones to bring the person back to homeostasis, balance and health. This is the new “Power Couple” in medicine and the popularity of this approach has grown exponentially in the past few years.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The road has never been in a straight line. Every twist and turn, struggle and obstacle has been a lesson learned. Some of the biggest obstacles were in personal growth as a business owner and a physician. Always doing what is safe and prudent for the patient comes first over anything else. The main thing that has kept me going for all these years was the vision and the incredible people, whose lives have made such a profound improvement along the way.
Please tell us about Source of Health.
Source of Health is a natural medical center located in Scottsdale, AZ. We provide a patient-centered model of healthcare that is built on evidence-based, therapies that look to restore health by aiming at the root cause of one’s illness. We are known for the level of detail, customizing each treatment plan and combining the two fields of regenerative and functional medicine. There are many clinics that do them separately, and with stem cells being a buzz word, almost everywhere you turn, we do them safely, ethically, and effectively. Being trained in the core philosophy of naturopathic medicine, weaving the separate modalities results in synergistic outcomes. We are uniquely positioned to handle mild, moderate and severe cases of degenerative joint disease, metabolic and digestive dysfunction, as well as applying this towards the aesthetics world. We truly believe in helping people look and feel better, without drugs or surgery.
If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
Start off smaller. I have welcomed all the lessons (even the expensive ones) I would recommend others to keep focused on their goals and following up with everyone. Avoid the distractions and maintain healthy time management for self-care.
