Dr. Arden Andersen, DO, MSPH, PhD has been warmly welcomed as “Best in Medicine” by the American Health Council for his dedication to healthcare during 21 years as an osteopath, physician and expert in nutrition.
Dr. Andersen began his professional life as a consultant in the field of Agricultural Nutrition, working to improve soil and crops. He was motivated by the desire to help people and make a difference, and after ten years in agriculture he decided he could help even more people by practicing medicine. In the course of his agricultural work, Dr. Andersen had met many farmers suffering from kidney disorders and other health issues as a result of pesticide exposure. This experience inspired him to specialize in nutritional medicine.
Having earned his medical degree from Western University of Health Sciences, College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific, Dr. Arden Andersen undertook an internship in family practice at Mercy-General Health Partners, Muskegon, MI., and a residency in occupational medicine at the University of South Florida. For the last two and a half years, Dr. Andersen has practiced as a physician with Prime HealthCare. He specializes in Occupational and Family Medicine, and his responsibilities include treating patients using Nutritional Therapies and Bio-Identical Hormones.
Beyond his role at Prime Healthcare, Dr. Andersen also maintains reserve status as a Flight Surgeon in the U.S. Air Force, and has earned the Warrior’s Creed Award. He advocates for better nutritional science and medicine through his blog and has published books on medicine and food production. In 2013 he was awarded the Ackers USA Lifetime Achievement Award. He attributes his success to his persistence and his desire to make a difference. In his free time, Dr. Andersen enjoys traveling and ballroom dancing.
As well as the American Health Council, Dr. Andersen is a member of the American Osteopathic Association and the The American Osteopathic Association of Prolotherapy Regenerative Medicine.
