Dr. Dickson Thom, DDS, ND has 40+ years of experience as a clinician and over 20 years as a medical professor. He lectures extensively throughout North America and is the author of two books, “Coping with Food Intolerances” and “Unda Numbers: An Energetic Journey to Homeostasis and Wellness.”
I bring my 40+ years of medical experience as a clinician and teacher to ACBM. I have been teaching doctors, students and the lay public in proven medical principles and business skills for over 35 years. My first post doctoral degree was obtained from the University of Toronto, Faculty of Dentistry in 1974. I then received my first Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine degree from the Ontario College of Naturopathic Medicine in Canada in 1986. In 1989, I completed a second degree from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon. I was the past Dean of Naturopathic Medicine at NCNM and was a full-time professor teaching clinical and physical diagnosis, gastroenterology, x-ray practicum, neurology, and business entrepreneurship for 23 years. I have lectured extensively throughout North America and have written and collaborated on many articles dealing with energy medicines and nutrition.
I have authored two books, Coping with Food Intolerances and Unda Numbers: An Energetic Journey to Homeostasis and Wellness. In 2009, I received a very prestigious honor and was awarded “The Vis Award” from the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians for my commitment to the Healing Power of Nature as demonstrated through my work, life, and community service. In addition to being a full time professor, I had a private practice in Portland, Oregon for 23 years with a primary focus on the management of chronic disease, including autoimmune disease, neurological conditions, gastrointestinal problems, and endocrine disorders. The therapies I utilize focus on optimal lifestyle choices for each specific condition, including dietary, sleep, and exercise recommendations, supplementation and herbal medicine, a European form of homeopathy called ‘biotherapeutic drainage’, and hydrotherapy
For the last 5 years I have focused on building this state of the art clinic in Scottsdale, AZ. ACBM provides exceptional care to all patients from young babies to the elderly using the therapies and philosophy that was perfected from my 23 years in Portland. Health is a reflection of physical, emotional, spiritual, and energetic balance, and I remain committed to helping people overcome obstacles to achieving this essential equilibrium.
For fun, I am passionate about my family, including my 6 amazing grand children, ice hockey as I have been a loyal Boston Bruin fan for over 60 years and traveling around the world, mostly on cruise ships (17 so far and counting).
