She was first exposed to wholistic medicine as a member of the American Medical Student Association, for which she served as the national president 1980-1981.

She employs proven complementary modalities that can aid in healing. Through Dr. Huet’s vision of bringing the integrative medicine approach to her community and region, the University Internal Medicine and Integrative Health practice was started and the University of Tennessee Medical Center integrative medicine program has developed and continues to grow.

Dr. Clayton Bell’s medical practice combines cutting edge evidence based Western Medicine with the ancient healing wisdoms of the East. This unique blend of “East meets West” allows the patient to be heard and seen on multiple levels: physical, mental, and spiritual. Dr. Bell has been shaped by his transformational personal and medical experiences both nationally and internationally. He has delivered babies in Maine, treated cholera epidemics in Haiti, taken a Vision Quest, ridden his bicycle across the country twice, and hiked across the Alps. This myriad of experiences has solidified Dr. Bell’s medical philosophy that the common thread to optimizing vitality and health lies within activating, supporting, and empowering the person to heal themselves from the inside out.
Dr. Bell loves spending time in nature with his incredible wife, Jeanie. He especially enjoys mountain biking, mountaineering, hiking, camping, rock climbing, yoga, meditation, reading, and cooking “Real Foods” (natural foods that grow from the earth or off of trees).
“I am sincerely humbled and honored to embark upon this journey of healing with you”. – Clayton
