Dr. Ashley Mayer is a naturopathic medical doctor and an expert in nutrition and wellness as it relates to pediatrics and families. Her passion for “prevention of disease as cure” fueled her desire to immerse herself into the research of childhood chronic illness, most specifically autism, epilepsy and ADD/ADHD. The result of her extensive research led to the notion these are NOT merely psychiatric/neurological diagnoses, but blanket diagnoses of any one or more medical conditions brought on by epigenetics- environmental insults that change gene expression. This means the external environment we surround our children directly affects their predisposition for disease.
With the birth of her daughter, Dr. Mayer founded DrGreenMom.com, a science- based resource for parents to raise their children more in line with the way nature intended. Her vision is a future for children, free from chronic disease. Every child deserves a best shot at life, from the very beginning.
Dr. Mayer received her doctorate from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, in Tempe, AZ. She graduated as a varsity and Big Ten scholar athlete from The Ohio State University, with a BS in exercise science and pre- physical therapy. Dr. Mayer is a former performance specialist to the NFL, MLB, and MLS.
Dr. Mayer is currently a concierge executive physician, practicing in sunny AZ, with a DEA license to prescribe and licenses in acupuncture, chiropractic, homeopathy and botanical medicine. Her daughter has high hopes to own chickens one day.
In her free time, Dr. Mayer is a world class athlete; Masters World Champion, 3 time Masters National Champion, 4 time All American, self glorified Bikram yogi, lover of God, and lover of craft beer.
