Welcome to Total Wellness DFW

“The art of healing comes from nature, not from the physician. Therefore the physician must start from nature, with an open mind.”


I'm Scott Maness, and I am a Naturopath and Certified Health Specialist, currently building my practice in Red Oak, TX, near the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex.

Total Wellness DFW is focused on giving real answers, using research as much as possible in the field of natural health remedies. I favor truly natural approaches first and whenever possible. For example, if a person has a vitamin D deficiency, my first approach would be to suggest appropriate amounts of sunshine, as that is truly the most “natural” approach. Next would be whole food sources, if possible, and third would be supplementation. Additionally, I focus first on the simplest and least expensive fixes for problems whenever possible. An example here would be making sure that people having sleeping difficulties are sleeping in as dark a room as possible.

I am concerned about the scare tactics that many use in order to try and affect change. (Do this or you’ll have a stroke!). I focus on solutions, not potential problems, as the way to motivate people to change. I see my audience as an already informed group of intelligent individuals who are looking for further information from a reliable source. I intend to be one of those reliable sources by doing as much homework as I can on everything that I post.

Thank you for visiting. Please let me know how I can be of further service to you on your quest.
