Introducing Dr. Mehta

Natural Health Solutions Houston is pleased to announce the transfer of Dr. Arturo M. Volpe’s practice to Dr. Ankur D. Mehta, D.O.

Dr. MehtaDr. Mehta received his degree in osteopathic medicine from the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences. He did his internship at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in Chicago, his residency at Loyola University Chicago Medical Center, and received his acupuncture certification from Harvard Medical School. In addition, he has for many years made an independent study of nutrition and Ayurvedic Medicine and brings that knowledge to bear in his evaluation of various health conditions.

Dr. Mehta’s philosophy is centered in the belief that the human body intrinsically wants to heal itself, and the physician’s role is to help it achieve homeostasis. His holistic approach combines dietary changes, appropriate lab testing when necessary along with careful analysis of the results, targeted nutritional supplements, and a wide range of complementary and traditional therapies.

Dr. Mehta’s office will continue to provide the same treatment options that Dr. Volpe did: hyperbaric oxygen therapy, neurofeedback, QRS/Medithera mat therapy, auditory integrative training, and far-infrared sauna. In addition, when called for Dr. Mehta can prescribe compounded natural hormones, natural thyroid, B-12 injections, nystatin, anti-parasitics and other prescriptions that Dr. Volpe previously referred out. Dr. Mehta will offer the same supplements and products through his office and his online store.

Dr. Mehta also speaks Spanish, as Dr. Volpe did with many of his patients from Mexico and elsewhere.

Because the Sunset office was not available for a longer lease, and because more room is needed to allow for growth, the office moved to interim quarters in the Spring Branch Professional Building at 8830 Long Point, Suite 502, Houston 77055. It is a light and bright and spacious office, and the building is easily accessed off the Katy Freeway. There is a Texas Children’s Pediatrics office in the same location, and ample free parking is available in both the front and the back of the building.

The office number will remain the same despite the move, 713.529.5669, and the new office email is though I will continue to check emails at the address below. Please help me welcome Dr. Mehta to Natural Health Solutions.

After completing a residency at the Natural Medicine Center in Clear Lake, in January 1999 Dr. Volpe opened Natural Health Solutions in Houston’s Rice Village as a sole practitioner. He expanded to larger quarters at 1714 Sunset Boulevard in July of 2003, and there he had his last patient appointments on July 17, 2013.

This website will remain online as a tribute to the 15 years Arturo dedicated to helping those who needed and valued his advice, treatment and counsel. Articles from the e-newsletters that he provided as a free educational service beginning in 2000, and that he so enjoyed researching and writing to share with his subscribers, will continue to be available as a resource for all, searchable by keyword, on the site.

Below is a link to the notice that ran in the Houston Chronicle. We invite you to sign the guestbook if you are so inclined, and help us remember Dr. Volpe with joy, admiration, gratitude, appreciation, and respect for a meaningful life well-lived.
