Dr. Walters’ Bio
Dr. Lou Walters was born and raised outside of Philadelphia in Warminster, Pennsylvania. Growing up and into early adulthood, he was obese. He had heard of vegetables, but much like unicorns and leprechauns, doubted their existence. Exercise was something he only watched on TV. His health was poor, but as it was all he knew, he thought it was normal.
After graduating from Albright College in Reading, PA with a B.S. in biology, Lou decided to try to improve his health. He began to jog and made gradual changes in the food he ate. With the support of friends, Lou lost 90 pounds. His health improved dramatically.
Years later, Lou was in two bad car accidents three months apart. As soon as he stopped the pain medications he was prescribed, the pain returned. After 2 years, he was told by his conventional doctors he would be in chronic pain for the rest of his life. After trying other branches of medicine without improvement, he began working with a naturopath at the insistence of a trusted friend. Under the naturopath’s care and following his recommendations they were able to identify the obstacles preventing healing. Once removed, Lou’s body was able to heal itself and the pain ceased. Lou had been considering a career in medicine, and now knew what path to follow.
Dr. Walters has always wanted to live in a small Rocky Mountain town with a close-knit community, which is why he chose to move to Bozeman. He is happy to call such a beautiful and friendly place home. When he is not working, Dr. Walters enjoys spending time with friends, laughing, eating, running, hiking, skiing, and any other activity that gets him outside.
