Your First Visit
Expect your first visit to last 60 – 75 minutes. We’ll ask you a lot of questions relating to your health, do some physical exam and may do in-office diagnostic testing or draw blood to send to a lab or refer you out for diagnostic imaging. If you have already had testing or imaging done in the past two years, please bring those records, or the name of the physician(s) who ordered the testing, with you. We would also like you to bring all supplements and medications you are currently taking. Subsequent visits should last between 30-45 minutes. You will be billed according to the complexity of your health issues and how much we have to do during your visit. If you have to pay out-of-pocket, we will give you a 10% discount. If you are having a financial hardship, we will charge you according to a sliding scale. You can make an appointment by calling: (425) 954-6771 or clicking here.
We offer compassionate, effective medical care through the promotion of the body’s own natural healing responses. Our naturopathic modalities include botanical medicine, homeopathy, energy medicine (including polarity therapy), weight management, physical medicine, lifestyle counseling and pharmaceuticals.
In our practice, we follow six philosophical principles of Naturopathic Medicine:
The Healing Power of Nature (Vis Medicatrix Naturae)
Naturopathic medicine recognizes an inherent ability in the body, which is ordered and intelligent. Naturopathic physicians act to identify and remove obstacles to recovery and to facilitate and augment this healing ability.
Identify and Treat the Causes (Tolle Causam) Identify and remove the underlying causes of illness, rather than eliminate or merely suppress symptoms. First Do No Harm (Primum Non Nocere)
Utilize methods and medicinal substances, which minimize the risk of harmful side effects.
Avoid, when possible, the harmful suppression of symptoms.
Acknowledge and respect the individual’s healing process, using the least force necessary to diagnose and treat illness.
Doctor as Teacher (Docere)
Naturopathic physicians educate their patients and encourage self-responsibility for health. They also acknowledge the therapeutic value inherent in the doctor-patient relationship.
Treat the Whole Person
Treat each person as an individual by taking into account physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, social and other factors. Since total health also includes spiritual health, naturopathic physicians encourage individuals to pursue their personal spiritual path.
Emphasize disease prevention, assessment of risk factors and hereditary susceptibility to disease and make appropriate interventions to prevent illness. Naturopathic medicine strives to create a healthy world in which humanity may thrive.
