ABOUT DR. WELLS
Dr. Lindsey Wells is a naturopathic physician. Dr. Wells has focused her practice on pediatric primary care and consultative care for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), PANS/PANDAS, other neurodevelopmental disorders, and various chronic illnesses. In addition, Dr. Wells focuses on preconception and maternal health. As chronic illness among the pediatric population is rising, her goal is to treat mothers before and after conception as a preventative measure to nurture healthy children. She uses therapies including homeopathy, botanical medicine, nutraceuticals, nutrition, counseling, and water therapy. This model of care addresses biochemical, nutritional, and energetic needs of each patient to improve overall health.
She believes that a child will thrive emotionally, physically, and academically if the family members are also thriving in all aspects of their health. When a child is struggling, the whole family is affected, which is why everyone involved should receive support. This is the fundamental basis for why Dr. Wells entered the medical profession, which was to keep families together. She truly believes that treating children and their families with naturopathic medicine leads to healthier individuals and stronger family units. In addition, Dr. Wells is the President of the Connecticut Naturopathic Physicians Association (CNPA). As President of the CNPA, her effort is focused on expanding the scope of practice of Naturopathic Doctors in CT to include prescriptive authority and to cultivate a stronger naturopathic community in the state. Also, Dr. Wells is an adjunct professor at Scared Heart University. She teaches anatomy and physiology and biology to undergraduate pre-health professionals. In 2016, Dr. Wells was recognized as “Young Influencer in Naturopathic Medicine” by the AANMC.
Dr. Wells is a dog lover that spends the majority of her time hiking and exploring the wilderness with her husband and her pup, Ed. If you visit the office, you will likely meet Ed who provides emotional support to the children and adult. Dr. Wells also enjoys traveling to National Parks and aspires to visit all 58 located in the United States.
