What qualities do you look for in a doctor?

  • Knowledgeable
  • Experienced
  • Professionalism
  • Kindness, caring, compassion
  • Open-minded about alternative medicine
  • Friendly (or dare we even say…cool?)

At UpWellness, we hear stories all the time about how hard it is to find a medical professional who even checks two or three of the boxes above. People tell us that the smart ones often seem nerdy and don’t feel caring or kind. The friendly, approachable types often lack the professionalism that give you confidence in their skills. And most physicians have zero training in the use of nutrition, herbal, or natural medicine.

You’ve come to the right place. UpWellness is proud to introduce you to our resident doctor… a man who actually checks all the boxes, and more.

Dr. Joshua Levittdr-josh-levitt is a naturopathic physician who is widely known for his expertise in treating both common and complex medical problems. In practice, Dr. Levitt draws on his broad knowledge of the science of both conventional and natural medicine and the art of combing the two into a “best of both worlds” treatment strategy. He has over 15 years of direct clinical experience using a unique blend of nutritional therapy, herbal medicine, and physical medicine to treat a wide range of diseases and conditions. His patients and his readers praise him for the ability to educate, motivate, and inspire them with stories and advice that helps them help themselves. In addition to his work here at UpWellness, Dr. Levitt owns and runs a private practice in Connecticut, where he is also a clinical preceptor for the Yale School of Medicine.

Dr. Levitt’s unique perspective was informed by an education that includes a degree in physiology from UCLA, a doctorate in naturopathic medicine from the prestigious Bastyr University, formal residency training in integrative medicine in Seattle, and experience with thousands of patients.

Dr. Levitt is also the author and creator of several popular books, and many articles and videos which all demonstrate his passion and commitment to bringing information and products to you that can help you achieve your health and wellness goals.
