Naturopathic Medicine & Wellness Services
About Dr. Debra Anastasio
I started my medical career in a Vo-Ag high school and became a CNA taking care of the elderly. I went to New England Deaconess Hospital School of Nursing for my diploma RN. Starting at a young age, I was an oncology nurse for years and co-developed the Safe Handling of Chemotherapy Guidelines for the Oncology Nursing Society as well as founding the Prevention & Early Detection of Cancer specialty for the profession. I went on to public health & corporate wellness for the hospital and then to employee health. Eventually I received my BSN from St. Joseph's college in West Hartford and soon thereafter went to Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine for my doctorate.
While in medical school, I raised my newborn son since Freshman year, worked in urgent care, became a certified doula, and had a home birth with my daughter in my senior year. I raised my children using natural health and lifestyle choices since. I consider it a privilege for you to share your health journey with me to create a path to greater health and understanding of your own experience.
