Dr. Todd Watts, D.C., P.Sc.D.

You may know Dr. Todd Watts as “The Doctor’s Doctor,” as “The Parasite Guy,” as one of the founding docs behind CellCore Biosciences and Microbe Formulas, or as an expert speaker on foundational medicine and overcoming chronic illness.

Dr. Todd is a national board-certified chiropractic physician, foundational medicine practitioner, and licensed with the Pastoral Medical Association. He’s also the owner of Total Body Wellness Clinic in Meridian, ID.

His passion for helping others stems from his own journey in overcoming struggles with allergies, arthritis, Epstein-Barr virus, Lyme disease, parasites, and many other chronic health issues he developed — all before the age of 40.

On his journey to treating Lyme disease, Dr. Todd went through cyclical patterns of feeling good for a short period of time and then crashing. He could never seem to get better and stay better. One day, he met another practitioner who told him that parasites were likely the root cause of his symptoms and preventing him from truly healing.

As Dr. Todd followed protocols to treat parasites, he experienced massive shifts in his health that weren’t possible before. This is when he realized that addressing parasites is a vital but often overlooked element in overcoming chronic illness.

Today, Dr. Todd is happily married with four amazing children, has his health and energy back, and is dedicated to helping others who are struggling achieve the same. He’s a sought-after podcast, summit, and docuseries expert speaker on the topics of parasites, Lyme disease, and overcoming chronic illness.

Dr. Todd’s professional and postdoctoral training includes acupuncture, applied kinesiology, bio-resonance therapy, chiropractic plus kinesiology, clinical kinesiology, live cell microscopy, medical IV infusion therapy, neuromodulation technique, nutrition, true cellular healing, and sacro-occipital technique (SOT).

He’s also taken courses on mastering brain chemistry, mastering functional blood chemistry, mastering thyroid, and the neuroendocrine immunology of environmental triggers. He’s trained with several Lyme disease and parasitology experts to gain a solid understanding of addressing these conditions naturally.
