Who is Dr. Tilli?
Dr. Tilli Williams has more than 30 years of experience in health, wellness and community outreach. She has been a health planner, a program manager, an executive director, a medical director, an adjunct professor, a keynote speaker, a patient navigator and a consultant and has successfully managed her private medical practice, Natural Rhythms for the past 21 years.
As a Naturopathic Physician, she helps her patients to feel better, look better and have more energy using natural medicine treatment protocols. Known as “Dr. Tilli” to her patients, she has been treating patients for a variety of illnesses such as colds, digestive disorders, weight problems, anxiety and depression using natural therapies such as nutrition, herbal medicine, hydrotherapy, physical medicine, Reiki and counseling.
Dr. Tilli is a health and wellness coach, consultant and physician. She is a member of the Ward 8 Health Council in Washington, DC. Dr. Tilli Williams is on the Technical Advisory Panel of the W. Montague Cobb/National Medical Association Health Institute which makes recommendations for the elimination of health disparities that affect African Americans and the underserved. For several years, Dr. Tilli was the Medical Director for an eating disorders facility in Tucson, Arizona. Dr. Tilli is the author of several articles, has conducted seminars nationally on health and wellness and has also hosted a weekly radio show called Natural Rhythms.
In addition to her private practice, Dr. Tilli has been able to pursue other passions such as:
- This is an opportunity for small groups of friends, families, church groups, clubs to meet with Dr. Tilli to discuss health and wellness in an intimate setting – your living room! It’s called HouseCalls™ because Dr. Tilli actually comes to your home or church or wherever you want to gather. In her many years of practice, she has found that there most people would rather discuss health challenges such as diabetes, hypertension, weight management and menopause in a small group setting rather than at a large seminar or conference. In this safe, non-threatening environment, it gives everyone the opportunity to ask their own questions as well as benefit from the discussion generated by the questions of others in the group. The group decides what the topic will be!
- Patient Navigation
- This passion was fueled by the personal experience of caring for her mother during a long terminal illness, where Dr. Tilli realized how difficult it must be for a lay person to “navigate” the labyrinth of the health care system to support their loved ones. To that end, she trained and managed Patient Navigators and Community Health Workers because she was convinced that they could play an integral role in supporting better health outcomes in our underserved communities.
- Stress Management
- With more than 20 years of practice, Dr. Tilli knows the adverse role that stress plays as it exacerbates dis-ease and lessens the quality of our lives. Dr. Tilli has been training patients, parents and students to practice stress management techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, mindfulness and yoga to help relieve stress and create more peaceful lives.
