For the following 10 years in her practice, Integrative Cardiology PLLC, in Scottsdale Arizona, Dr. Warner combined the best of conventional cardiology with holistic heart care. But the continued erosion of the art of medicine by insurance and pharmaceutical companies, as well as government guidelines for medical practice, led Dr. Warner to search for other paradigms of healing.

In 2008 she received State of Arizona certification (MD(H) and in 2010, national certification (CCH). “I have always viewed the patient as a whole person experiencing an illness, rather than focusing only on the illness. In Homeopathy the whole person and his entire life are the basis of treatment.” Dr. Warner practices classical homeopathy and consults in cardiovascular diseases as needed.
