Applied Wisdom Health Institute was founded in 1996 by Dr. Curt Maxwell, a brilliant New Zealand-born, American, and Canadian trained Integrative Physician. His vision was to provide empowerment through information and effective treatment to those most in need and to eliminate ignorance as well as suffering in its many forms.

As an avid scholar, he was passionate about optimizing health and disseminating truth in a world full of misinformation. Dr. Curt was a maverick in his field, a passionate educator, a brilliant physician, a loving father, and a committed mentor who loved his family and patients second only to his love for truth, knowledge, and dispelling ignorance. ​

While no longer managed by Dr. Curt Maxwell who passed on January 15th, 2020, A.W. Health Institute continues to flourish in its intention and mission. It is now owned and operated by his son, Allen Maxwell, and partner Dr. Aalia Avelin, who have dedicated their lives to preserving and cultivating the legacy created by Dr. Curt Maxwell. A. W.

"Dr. Maxwell took the time to figure out the root cause of my pain. I left his office feeling much better, and no longer walking in pain."


"I appreciate Dr. Avelin taking such great care and time to go over everything with me! She is so genuine and aware of details and has my best interest at heart!"


It was incredible. Dr. Maxwell is a master of injections and on top of that he creates such a healing space with his energy and powerful words. I’ve never felt so much care from a physician.


"Dr. Maxwell and Dr. Avelin are an amazing team together. I cannot say I have gotten better care from a doctor in a very long time. They offer an elegant combination of knowledge and compassion. "


Dr. Avelin is nothing short of a miracle worker! I played football my entire life, and my body took a pounding. my back, shoulders, and neck in particular have been in daily pain for 10+ years, and after trying many different healing modalities with no relief, it’s just something i’ve learned to deal with. imagine my surprise when I received one cupping session from Dr. Avelin, and my pain was 100% gone! i almost cried because I never thought i’d experience what it was like to be pain-free again. to me, it was nothing short of a miracle. I can’t recommend Dr. Avelin highly enough. she’s an awesome person, has a calm and comforting bedside manner, and is an incredible doctor. go see her!


Very pleasant experience.


My visits w/ Dr. Aalia are incredible! Her caring demeanor, attention to detail & the time she takes to really listen is unparalleled. I have never received this type of care from a health care provider before. She has helped me manage my anxiety, balance my hormones, help w/ gut issues & be a sounding board for any symptoms I might be having. I regularly see her for acupuncture & find that after a session with her, I am realigned and grounded. I can't recommend her enough.


I've never felt so comfortable in the presence of a doctor in my life. They really care, and really listen. I would highly recommend them to anyone.


Dr. Maxwell is so incredibly kind and very smart. He listened so well and didn't rush the appointment. He gave me a lot of supplements for many different issues and helped me tremendously!


Dr Maxwell was the most caring and insightful doctor I have ever been to. Dr Maxwell listened to my concerns and questions and thoughtfully explained what was going on in extremely detailed and simple terms. My issues have mostly all diminished and I feel like I have a new lease on life!!! This is healthcare at its finest.


This was an amazing experience. Came in feeling completely depleted. I have been sick for 3 days. They squeezed me in and got an IV going immediately. So knowledgeable and really cared. I am excited to have them on my healthcare team.


Dr. Allen is amazing! What special people he and Dr. Aalia are. I have never experienced the type of care and compassion I experienced with him. The treatment and maintenance plan he recommended are working so well! My pain is so much better and continues to improve daily! I highly, highly recommend Dr. Allen and his practice!!


We take your health as a priority.
