During this time, Dr. Selvey chose to devote some of his time to teaching courses in Public Health and had several papers published in medical journals.
Later, Dr. Selvey worked with a start-up medical device company in greater Los Angeles, Ca. that was focused on the precision delivery of insulin to persons with Type I diabetes. He helped to develop external insulin pumps and supplies, the implantable insulin pump, and the continuous glucose monitoring system.

Naturopathic physicians choose the least invasive and least toxic treatments necessary for each patient.
Naturopathic doctors recognize the body’s inherent ability to heal itself.
Naturopathic doctors identify, address and remove the underlying causes of disease.
Educating and supporting patients on personal health management is an important role for naturopathic doctors. They empower patients to take responsibility for their own health. They also acknowledge the therapeutic value inherent in the doctor-patient relationship.
This is a holistic concept that recognizes the body as an integrated whole. Naturopathic doctors treat the patient, not the disease. A naturopathic assessment addresses the nutritional status, lifestyle, family history, physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental and social factors in a person’s life.
Naturopathic doctors promote a focus on overall health, wellness and disease prevention.
