(SCNM), located in Tempe, Arizona. The program at SCNM is an accredited, 4-year, post-graduate education resulting in the degree Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine.

The story bringing Dr. Johnson to naturopathic medicine began with his own experience of chronic illness, brought on in part by occupational exposure to toxic chemicals. Unable to find help in conventional medicine, he turned to holistic therapies such as homeopathy, nutritional and botanical supplementation as well as making dietary and lifestyle changes, to regain his health.
