Why I became a doctor?

When I was a young girl, I witnessed my mother struggle with chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. Going from doctor to doctor, I learned how I did and did not want my family to be treated and how disease can affect the entire family. These early experiences drew me to ask questions, look for the underlying cause of disease rather than mask the symptoms, and to truly listen to the body.

Being a naturopathic doctor means getting to do what I love by helping others on a daily basis. I personally know what it’s like to juggle a career, a family, a business while also having the challenges of a chronic autoimmune condition.

With my recent diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, I am on a mission to heal and share in my experience on what truly makes a difference.

With the fast pace of modern life, it’s common and easy to become off-balance. I love meeting my patients where they are in their journey and offering tips to become the best version of themselves.

What conditions I love to treat:

Fatigue

Thyroid Disease

Hormone Imbalance

Professional Moms

Busy Entrepreneurs

Things you may not know about me:

I married my high school sweetheart, Derek.

I’m a Midwestern girl, my parents are amazing farmers, and I have one sister who I adore.

I love to dance. I used to be a ballet dancer and trained at some of the top ballet schools in the nation.

I am a proud mom to two adorable little girls, Jazlyn and June.

I love artichokes! Yummy!

Nourish is the absolute best! I started seeing Dr. Stewart back in 2020 when I had some mystery symptoms that were recurring for years and never resolved. She assigned all the right lab tests to start figuring out the problem and we found out so much valuable information already. I live in OC so I do video calls, but I have been to the office for a blood draw and it is the cleanest, nicest place! Everyone was so kind and helpful and my blood draw was so easy. Now in 2024 I am seeing her again to work on some other issues and I can do local blood draws which is super convenient. She has prescribed supplements for me that immediately helped which literally changed my day to day life for the better. Now we are working on getting to the root cause and I cannot recommend Nourinsh enough!!!

Dr. Stewart is the first doctor I've ever had to completely listen to my concerns and make me hopeful for feeling better. She focuses on optimal health and prevention of disease, not just putting a bandaid on my symptoms. It is refreshing to finally get to the root cause of my symptoms, and not just have a doctor tell me "all your labs are within normal limits".

Wow. I just had my initial consult with Dr Stewart and immediately felt like I was meeting a friend not just a new doctor. I have been hypothyroid since my 30's that was diagnosed with the birth of my daughter. My body has been functioning well on levothyroxine until 3 years ago when suddenly my post menopausal symptoms took a sharp incline and I started having issues with dry skin, hair, constipation and more injuries... Because I was retired, I started researching and experimenting with solutions on my own and while I learned a great deal, nothing was making a difference (even cutting out sugar and alcohol which I completely believed was at the root of my problems). My thyroid was also not keeping up and my PCP was perplexed. While I was waiting on the endocrinologist referral, I sought out Dr. Stewart. She was also wait listed as long as the endo doc but i was hopeful for a cancellation and that just happened! Her knowledge was immediately apparent. I gave her my whole history and all the major points of trauma and lifestyle that have likely been causing my thyroid challenges and she lasered in on key issues and the solutions that feel exactly right (that I simply could never have found on my own). After 90 minutes, I finally feel I have someone on my team that knows what to look for and who can provide balanced actionable lifestyle and supplement changes that can get results and solve this puzzle of what's at the root of my thyroid problems once and for all. Hormones are so complex, and despite being an engineer and a good researcher, I could have spent years of investigation trying different tests before I'd gained any traction. The knowledge, experience and intuition that Dr Stewart brings to the table is priceless and worth every cent (in fact, don't tell her, but she may be undercharging! ;)) Such a relief to not be alone in this journey. Thank you Dr Stewart and Nourish team!

I struggled with weight management for sometime and I am getting great results from the weight management program at Nourish. It is a game changer! Thank you Dr. Stewart for your thorough assessment that not just addressed my weight issues but your great workup that helped me identify other concerns we now have treated. Also shoutout to Alex the office manager for your excellent support and Colleen for working with my insurance. Love the team at Nourish!!!

5 star ratingThis practice is amazing. I'm a patient here and a fellow healthcare provider, as I send many patients here as well. That being said, I'm specific and intentional in who I refer to. Dr. Natasha Monterey and Dr. Adrienne Stewart have been pivotal in my health journey. Empathetic, smart, and know their stuff! Highly recommend for thyroid, digestive health, adrenal fatigue and overall well being!

5 star ratingI am so grateful I found Nourish Medical and Dr Adrienne Stewart! Initially I came to her to help me uncover a lot of environmental exposures including mold exposure, which explained why I was having fertility, adrenal, thyroid, hormone imbalances. She's supported me and my husband since 2019 and I got wonderful support to detox gently before my first round of mini IVF in 2020. She shared her wisdom on if it was a good fit for me and truly showed so much care and encouragement through out the 4 years I've known her all while dealing with her own healing journey. She also helped me with an overactive thyroid in early pregnancy which was a little scary and really went above and beyond to help keep me and my baby well with the right medication. I went on to have a wonderful pregnancy and healthy baby girl that is thriving today. I wish I contacted her sooner in postpartum because she really helped balance my hormones after pregnancy. I'm so glad I found her and was able to prepare my body for pregnancy so it was a safe environment for my miracle baby. We are so greatful!

My mother had a recent discovery of potential thyroid cancer that ended up being multi nodular goiter. I'm a local Chiropractor and could help my mother to a certain point but I realized quickly we needed the help of Dr. Stewart (who I already refer my patients to). From making the appointment, creating the portal, filling out the paperwork - it was already exceeding what western medicine doctors offered. Her initial appointment was an hour long and she patiently went over my mothers past history, current symptoms, supplement regimen, medications and took her time in creating a tangible plan for her. She looked at ways to improve my mothers quality of daily life and provided tangible resources to help. Right after the appointment, we had a visit summary with everything we discussed and the front desk is quick to make a follow-up appointment. The time and energy put into the first appointment was well worth their initial cost. Unfortunately, current insurances control doctors which returns with minimal effort on doctors part to not "increase the cost of healthcare." By seeing Dr. Stewart, your health is at the top priority, not what your insurance will cover. Thank you 1000000x for taking care of my mom and constantly providing quality care.

I found Dr. Stewart when I first moved to San Diego in 2018. I had been seeing an Endocrinologist back in NJ for over 10 years after being diagnosed with Hashimoto/hypothyroid and was not feeling well on Synthroid. I felt so at ease with Dr. Stewart the first time I met with her. So very understanding and helpful. She introduced me to natural thyroid that made me feel so much better. She really cares about her patients and is very thorough. I started seeing Crystal after I was experiencing anxiety and she is amazing too. Very caring and easy to talk to. When my husband passed away suddenly 2 years ago she really saved me. The support and help she provided me in the past few years is just amazing and I am forever grateful for her and the Nourish family.
