"I have been privileged to work with so many people on their healing journeys and will continue to help others find the reasons they are suffering and help them navigate the vast world of treatment options to achieve the best health possible."  ~Dr. Schull

Here's what others have said about working with him:

"I highly recommend Dr. Schull. He is a very attentive clinician. He listens and asks questions into how you are feeling to uncover the root cause. He has helped me to be at my optimal health.  I have referred over ten of my closest friends to him, and all have raved about how smart and helpful he has been for them as well. 

 

Dr. Schull has developed a wonderful two month Microbiome Reset Program, which was not only very educational, but improved my digestion and has had lasting effects on the foods I now eat. My digestion has never been better.

 

In addition, he has brought alignment to my neck and spine and helped remove all inflammation in my body.  I am grateful for my improved health under his care."

" I started treatment with Dr. Schull about a year ago due to a foot injury - I overdid it and crammed too much activity into a 5 day period (running, working with weights, heavy yard work). The pain was excruciating, and I have a high pain tolerance, and it was worse than my perforated appendix - which lead to an appendectomy. I was looking for a clinician that was going to give me the straight scoop, spend some time getting me healed and not respond with cortisone treatment - that was Dr. Schull. He listened to my "story" and in turn examined me and then explained exactly what the injury was and the best approach to treatment. His focus was healing my injury and getting me back to my normal activities as soon as reasonably possibly. Dr. Schull is a great listener, really understands and explains the science of the human body and corresponding treatment and is both interested and cares about his patients. I'm a software engineer by profession and I always need the data and the facts. I would highly recommend Dr. Schull for both the treatment of injury and prescribing of holistic anti-inflammatory/pain and healing agents."

Here's Dr. Schull telling his story about how he came to medicine:

I was born and raised in rural parts of Connecticut where I grew up taking many adventures exploring nature and discovering the oddities that make up the world as we know it.  As with all of us, since the innocence of childhood, life has been full of ups and downs and many challenges.  I remember some dark years as a teenager when I quickly became overweight, depressed, and seriously introverted (a real health catastrophy!)  In fact, this is really what got me started in healthcare.  As a late teenager I knew I needed to do something about the health of my mind and body and began to research diet and nutrition.  I am excited to share with folks that I was able to transform myself from an obese teen with a fatty liver and significant depression, to a lean, vibrant, healthy soul.  Really, this was the beginning of a lifelong journey into understanding how our bodies and minds work and what it means to live a healthy existence. 

Ultimately, this passion has led me to studying naturopathic medicine, nutrition, exercise, herbal medicine, homeopathy, nature therapy, massage, craniosacral therapy, spiritual practices, biophysics, laser therapies, neurofeedback, and a host of other tools used to facilitate health and healing.  I have spent many years in medical training and clinical practice refining how to help people heal themselves; with a little help from our allies in the natural world around us.

Today, I remain committed to the practices that keep me functioning at my best and I encourage my patients to do the same.  For me, this means ample time spent playing in nature, hiking, walking, exploring, camping, climbing trees, eating the diet that is best for me, creating new culinary delights, getting ample sleep, seeking knowledge, crafting herbal remedies, removing stress from my life, playing music, and filling my time with the things that nourish me.  As I tell everyone, "The quickest route to optimal health is to do the things that nourish you as an individual, commit to this now and the rest becomes easy."
