Changing the World of Botanical Medicine

Arriving in the early months of 2020, the Ric Scalzo Institute for Botanical Medicine will advance 21st century Botanical Medicine. The Institute will conduct analytical testing, cellular and molecular biology assays, and metabolomic testing on (medical) botanicals. It will expand benchtop and clinical research opportunities for students, and work alongside other academic institutions and leading natural product companies to generate and publish new knowledge, develop new botanical products and improve existing formulas.

Honors Tracks

SCNM has launched five distinct honors tracks in community health, nature cure, pain management, pediatrics, and regenerative medicine. The honors tracks give qualified students the ability to gain a richer and more in-depth experience within a specific emphasis. In addition, these focused areas of clinical education can help position students for competitive post-graduate opportunities and residencies.

 

Neil Riordan Center for Regenerative Medicine

Dedicated in 2018, the Neil Riordan Center for Regenerative Medicine is the first of its kind at any naturopathic medical school, continuing SCNM’s reputation as leaders in the field of naturopathic medicine and stem cell therapy. The center provides extensive research opportunities and additional clinical experiences for students focused on providing non-opioid pain relief options to the patients.

 

SCNM Sage Foundation: Providing quality healthcare to those in need and allowing students to broaden their patient experiences

In addition to on-campus clinical experiences at SCNM’s Medical Center and Neil Riordan Center for Regenerative Medicine, SCNM third- and fourth-year medical students treat patients at various community clinics throughout Maricopa County. At these clinics, patients include children in low-income school districts, domestic violence survivors, low-income families, individuals coping with HIV/AIDS and patients recovering from drug and alcohol addiction. This gives students the opportunity to help underprivileged communities and expand their clinical experiences.

Exciting New Developments at SCNM!

Regenerative Medicine Center Opens

The Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine & Health Sciences cut the ribbon for the opening of the new Neil Riordan Center for Regenerative Medicine on November 15th. This affiliation between SCNM and Dr. Riordan, a research leader in stem cell therapy, will accelerate the development of this safe and innovative option for the treatment of acute, chronic pain. The Neil Riordan Center for Regenerative Medicine catapults SCNM into being national and international leaders in the field of regenerative medicine and makes SCNM a household name in the world of pain management. It will vastly broaden the scope of our educational opportunities for our naturopathic doctorial level students, which will now offer an Honors Track specifically designed to take advantage of this exciting new center. The Neil Riordan Center for Regenerative Medicine is an expertly staffed clinical facility, built from a patient-centered design to promote healing, located within SCNM’s LEED Platinum certified Community Commons.

Stem cell therapy, an example of regenerative medicine, injects a patient’s own stem cells to promote healing, reduce inflammation and stimulate tissue repair.  Elite athletes, people with chronic pain and those who experience a lessened quality of life overall due to physical discomfort find treatment through stem cell therapy accelerates healing and reduces pain.  Another benefit is pain management without the use of opioids.

About our donor: Neil Riordan, PA, PhD, is a pioneer in the field of applied Stem Cell research.  In addition to collaboration with major universities in the United States, research and patient care is currently being conducted at Dr. Riordan’s other laboratories and clinics in Dallas, Texas and Panama City, Panama.  He is an author of more than seventy peer-reviewed medical research publications that explore Stem Cell Therapy’s potential in treating Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Osteoarthritis and spinal cord injuries. Dr. Riordan is also the author of two books on stem cell therapy: “Stem Cell Therapy: A Rising Tide – How Stem Cells are Disrupting Medicine and Changing Lives” and “MSC (Mesenchymal Stem Cells): Clinical Evidence Leading Medicine’s Next Frontier.”

Doctors, Faculty and Students Making News

Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine has earned quite a bit of attention in the media lately, especially with a chance to share so many new and time-tested projects and treatments.  Some examples of news breakers are Dr. Miriam Wheeler (pictured at left), who gained public interest with a recent appearance on one of Phoenix’s major news programs, Channel 3, and Dr. Taylor Arnold who has been asked to write a regular response column in the popular magazine, Cooking Light.  SCNM doctors, students and faculty have also been featured on MSN, Prevention Magazine, The Huffington Post, Elite Daily, and the Arizona Capital Times. In order to provide the public much more information about naturopathic medicine, SCNM continues to elevate the level of knowledge of its amazing scope.

SCNM invites everyone to explore the field of naturopathic medicine through events such as Discovery Day, Research Night, Student for a Day and other opportunities. Feel free to reach out to our admissions team with any questions or comments.

Research Continues to Grow as a Major Component of SCNM’s Opportunities

Examples of some of the research projects students and faculty are working on right now include:

  1. Students who are improving the efficacy of botanicals against Gram negative bacteria (Salmonella, Escherichia, Shigella, Klebsiella) by the addition of permeabilizing agents.
  2. Identifying botanicals with efficacy against Borrelia burgdorferi, the causative agent of Lyme disease and another focusing on deciphering the secrets of Echinacea purpurea: testing the antiviral and immune regulation of different parts of the plant extracted under different methods
  3. Characterization of the anticancer properties of various botanicals and mushrooms
  4. Characterization the synergistic activity of antibacterial clays
  5. Characterizing the antimicrobial activity of the volatile (gaseous) components of essential oils
  6. Projects overseen by Dr. Langland
  7. Characterization of botanicals with activity against herpes viruses
  8. The activity of the carnivorous botanical, Sarracenia purpurea, against viruses (including human papilloma virus) and squamous cell carcinoma
  9. Botanicals for the treatment of emerging viral infections: Ebola and Zika viruses
