About The Founder

Parthenia Izzard, the founder and President of Alternative Medicine Therapies, remembers that even as a child she has wanted to be a healing energy in the lives of those with whom she comes in contact. For as long as she can remember her life has revolved around alternative ways of enhancing her health and the health of those around her.

Parthenia’s personal exploration provides the foundation for her professional and formal study as an adult. She spent her adult life devouring books on acupressure, herbology, psychology, nutrition, vegetarianism, yoga, and meditation. Some years after marriage to John, and while in the dissertation phase of her Ph.D. in Clinical and Health Psychology (ABD), Parthenia decided to become a certified Natural Healthcare Practitioner (CNHP) and Pennsylvania state-certified Psychologist. She studied nutrition, iridology, kinesiology, bodyworks, body systems, and energy medicine at the Delaware Valley Naturopathic Medical Association in Pennsylvania (accredited by the American Naturopathic Medical Association).

With that foundation, she founded Alternative Medicine Therapies to formally provide that energy to others. Once she committed to opening her private practice, her dream was formally realized. Now you too can share her energy and let Alternative Medicine Therapies bring a smile to your face because you’ll just feel so much better.

A comprehensive approach of using the therapy that suits you, by not forcing you to adapt to a therapy, determines the best therapy for your condition. When aptly applied, you will find your way to a path of wellness, wholeness, and wisdom.
