About Dr. Cara

Dr. Cara Maxson is a Naturopathic Medical Doctor specializing in the mind-body connection and the spiritual aspects in chronic disease. With a background in neuroscience and shamanic studies, Dr. Maxson is dedicated to getting to the root cause, addressing the emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual components of the individual, to gain understanding of why the imbalance manifested, creating the dis-ease.

Our psychology is not separate from our physiology and therefore the mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of disease must be addressed in order to actualize vibrant health and well-being.

In the same way we change our external environment to remove contaminants, such as mold, so as not to make us sick, we must give our internal environment the same attention and care. As science has shown, our environment influences and controls cellular function, which determines the tissues’ function, and ultimately each organ system.

Each organ system i.e. cardiovascular system, gastrointestinal system, etc., does not function in isolation, therefore, the function of our cells directly impacts our entire physical body, including our mental and emotional well-being.

Our beliefs, perceptions, and interpretations create our life experience, including how our physical body functions. We must train how we use our energy and consciously choose our attitude no matter what is happening in our external environment. If you do not intentionally choose, it will be chosen for you through the subconscious habitual, programmed patterns, creating the same old experiences we strive so hard to get away from. Through therapies such as EVOX, we can reframe our perceptions, change our life experience, and ultimately release limiting mindsets and toxic emotions that impact our physical body, creating an environment for imbalance and disease.

Dr. Maxson’s goal is to inspire and empower her patients and help them understand that they hold the key to their own healing. She is a strong believer in the power of the body’s innate ability to heal itself and the ability of naturopathic medicine to help remove the obstacles to radiant health and well-being. After many years of pursuing a path to improve her own health, she understands the level of commitment and discipline it takes to overcome the ingrained habitual patterns that stifle our progress. She feels one of her roles as a physician, is to see the unique potential in each patient and hold that vision to guide them on their journey to wellness. Dr. Maxson is also a certified Holistic Pelvic Care™ practitioner, a Death Walker trained by Zenith Verago, Biotherapeutic Drainage practitioner, and EVOX therapist.
