Nature's Own Wellness is an alternative medicine clinic in Sarasota, Florida, founded in 2001 by acupuncture and homeopathic physician, Melinda Leeson. Her clinic specializes in restoring health in patients suffering from a variety of respiratory, cardio-vascular, digestive, hormonal, urinary and musculoskeletal problems. Dr. Leeson also focuses on providing relief for anxiety and neurological disorders such as ADD/ADHD and Asperger's syndrome. Her therapeutic modalities include acupuncture, Chinese herbs, classical homeopathy and fresh food plans for men and women of all ages.

Unique to her approach is the amount of time she takes with each patient in order to restore whole-body health. Pathological signs and symptoms resolve naturally, of their own accord during this process. Her treatments are gentle, safe and without side effects, and can be used, as needed, in combination with western medical protocols and surgical procedures.

Melinda Leeson, DOM.

(Doctor of Oriental medicine)

My passion for holistic health care began early in my life as I tried to manage the health problems of my beloved pets using only natural methods. I began studying classical homeopathy with Louis Klein (FSHom) and Jeremy Sherr (FSHom) while at the same time pursuing an AS degree in Veterinary Technology at St. Petersburg Jr. College. I graduated and earned Florida board certification in 1997. I continued my homeopathic post-graduate studies with Jayesh Shah, MD., and most recently Rajan Sankaran, MD., and Massimo Mangialavori, MD.

As it turned out, the owners of the pets I helped wanted natural health care for themselves as well, and urged me to enroll in a school for traditional Chinese medicine. In 2000, I completed a master's degree from East-West College of Natural Medicine. Those same pet owners became my first patients when I opened Nature's Own Wellness in 2001. Every day furthers this exciting journey in service and healing.

Customer Testimonials

I can not say enough about the difference I feel since I started seeing Dr. Melinda Leeson. I always knew there was something better than the norm and found it with Nature's Own and Dr. Leeson. From the change in diet, to the acupuncture and the Chinese herbs, add it all together and I feel so much better. I now have the knowledge I need to successfully continue down this path. I encourage anyone to take the step to Homeopathic and/or Acupuncture treatments. I honestly did not know I could feel this good and know I can still feel better!

Have a read about this new enterovirus that is affecting kids almost nationwide. Good idea to prepare ourselves here in FL by going to the health food store today to purchase a bottle of homeopathic aconite 30c. This will immediately help your children

This is a significant finding. Please share with your loved ones. Genetically modified crops receive literally tons of this herbicide while they are growing into the foods we all eat.
