Dr. Anton Alder, ND

Naturopathic Physician

As a licensed Naturopathic Physician (ND), Dr. Anton uses a wide variety of tools to generate healing
from within. As a firm believer that nature knows best, Dr. Anton works together with individuals to restore
their innate healing ability. He learned the delicate balance between the art and science of medicine from
the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine where he graduated Cum Laude as Doctor
of Naturopathic Medicine in 2017.  Prior to naturopathic medical school he received his Bachelor of
Science in Biology, with an emphasis in Neurobiology, from Brigham Young University -
Idaho. Throughout his education he served in numerous leadership positions and was recognized for
excellence in academia, community service, and extracurricular activities. He has continued to reach out
and develop new skills by completing courses in neuro-emotional technique (NET) and activator
technique. His training in Connecticut allowed him to develop unique skills in treating stealth pathogens
such as lyme disease, generative medicine, and pediatrics.
An early interest in the medical field afforded Dr. Anton the advantage of experience in working with
several types of medicinal professionals. Through shadowing, volunteering, and employment he spent
time with lab technicians, radiologists, nurses, physical therapists, chiropractic physicians, acupuncturists,
various medical doctors and surgeons located in the hospitals and clinics in the communities where he
has lived. Prior to becoming a physician, Dr. Anton served in several capacities for the Peterson Clinic.
During his time as assistant to “Dr. Ken” Peterson who practiced as a Chiropractic and Naturopathic
Physician, he soon recognized naturopathic medicine as the career of his choice. He remains fiercely
dedicated to the profession, lobbying state and federal governments for positive changes in how
Naturopathic Physicians can practice, as well as improving affordable patient access.
While Naturopathic Physicians are trained as clinic based primary care physicians who can diagnose and
treat a large variety of conditions, Dr. Anton primarily focuses on chronic conditions and preventative
medicine. Common conditions for the patients he treats include: allergies, autoimmune diseases,
cardiovascular disease, chronic pain, diabetes, fatigue, fertility, gastrointestinal complaints, kidney
disease, sleep disorders, thyroid and endocrine conditions. Dr Anton embraces the Triangle of Health
paradigm of treating the whole person including his specialized training in homeopathy and the
Naturopathic approach to pharmaceutical prescriptions and counseling. Dr. Anton happily works hand in
hand with other physicians and healthcare professionals to optimize patient care and support you no
matter where you are on your health journey.
As father to three energetic children and husband to his incredible wife Patricia, he has a special
appreciation for families and family life. Outside the clinic and family time Dr. Anton enjoys a wide variety
of extracurricular activities. He enjoys playing practically all sports while sharing a special love for playing
tennis, soccer and ice skating.  
When possible, he is found in the great outdoors fishing, hiking, camping
or otherwise enjoying nature.
