Dr. Hansen

Dr. Clark H. Hansen is a licensed Naturopathic Medical Doctor (N.M.D.Dr. Hansen) who has been in private practice in Scottsdale, Arizona, since 1986. He is the President and Medical Director of the Hansen Clinic of Natural Medicine, Aesthetics and Mesotherapy.

Dr. Hansen is one of the most well respected Naturopathic Physicians in the country and receives patients from all over the United States. He has appeared on many radio and TV health shows and was the host his own radio show, Vital Signs, in Phoenix for many years. Dr. Hansen graduated from the John Bastyr College of Naturopathic Medicine, in Seattle, Washington in 1986. In 1988, he founded the Arizona Institute of Natural Medicine, in Scottsdale, Arizona.

In 1992, Dr. Hansen helped co-found the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine & Health Sciences, the first 4-year Naturopathic Medical School in Arizona.

Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine

Dr. Hansen has served as an Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine at the college and on the Curriculum Review Committee. In 1994, Dr. Hansen founded Vital Formulations, Inc., a nutritional and herbal supplement company, in order to make its clinical formulas available to the public through retail stores and doctor’s offices.

In 2004, Dr. Hansen added Aesthetics and Mesotherapy to his practice and changed the name of the clinic from the Arizona Institute of Natural Medicine, to the Hansen Clinic of Natural Medicine, Aesthetics, and Mesotherapy.

Dr. Hansen epitomizes the essence of being a General Practice, Family Physician. His practice includes all ages from newborns with colic to the most senior suffering from congestive heart failure or cancer. A Naturopathic Physician is the best suited of any medical professional to serve as a family’s primary care provider because he specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of the whole person and the whole family.

Healthcare For The Whole Family

As a Naturopathic Physician, trained in every aspect of diagnosis and treatment of every kind of disease, Dr. Hansen is able to correlate symptoms from multiple body systems and determine the common links, deficiencies, weakness, or environmental blocks that are preventing the body from healing. This comprehensive assessment allows him to prescribe nutritional, herbal, or homeopathic medicines that provide the missing building blocks and stimulate or enhance the key body systems that allow the body to overcome and cure the disease.


When Clark was in high school, his family was introduced to a book entitled, Own Your Own Body which taught the core principles of Naturopathy: that the body has the inherent ability to heal itself and that its constant goal is to attain and maintain vibrant dynamic health. This concept had a great influence on Clark’s family and inspired him to want to become a doctor.

In 1976, Clark enrolled in Pre-Med at Brigham Young University, in Provo, Utah, but it wasn’t until his senior year that he discovered that Naturopathy was an organized medical profession and learned that it was the only medical profession that taught principles similar to those that he had espoused as his own. The motto of Naturopathy, Vis medicatrix naturae, means through the healing power of nature. This motto rang in his ears like a clarion call and he new at once that this was to be his profession.

Dr. Hansen is married and has 4 daughters, ages 23, 18, 14 and 12, and one son age 7. When he is not busy seeing patients, giving seminars, or occupied with scouts or church responsibilities, you may find him doing what he enjoys most: playing in the backyard with his children on the tree swing, swimming, jumping with them on the trampoline, riding bicycles, or scooters, or attending choir concerts, performances, etc. In his spare time he enjoys playing golf, tennis, and jogging. His accomplished wife, Sheila, is an extraordinary wife and mother, exceptional cook, and avid tennis player. Needless to say, the Hansen’s are a busy family.

Medical School Training

Dr. Hansen received his N.M.D. degree in 1986 from The John Bastyr College of Naturopathic Medicine, now known as Bastyr University. Located in Seattle, Washington, Bastyr University is one of the world’s leading academic centers for advancing knowledge in the natural health sciences. A twenty-five-year pioneer in natural medicine, Bastyr University continues to be in the forefront of developing the model for 21st century medicine.

Bastyr University is accredited by the Commission on Colleges and Universities of the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges. The Naturopathic Medicine Program is accredited by the Council on Naturopathic Medical Education.

Naturopathic Medical school curriculum comprises approximately the same number of total course hours as Yale, Stanford, Johns Hopkins and the University of Arizona schools of medicine. The basic sciences of anatomy, biochemistry, etc, as well as the clinical and diagnostic sciences, including cardiology, gynecology, internal medicine, etc, are all virtually identical in all schools.

The grand difference between naturopathic and conventional medical schools lies in the choice of therapeutics. Naturopathic medical schools train doctors to use medicines made by nature first and drugs only as a second choice for emergency situations or as a temporary measure to control intolerable symptoms while safer natural medicines are used to correct the underlying cause of the disease. Conventional medical schools still have no course studies in Botanical Medicine, Homeopathy, or Clinical Nutrition. Naturopathic medical schools require at least 600-700 additional hours of these core classes.


Dr. Hansen is a member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, The Arizona Naturopathic Medical Association, The American Preventive Medical Association, The American Holistic Medical Association, and The Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine.
