Mission Statement:

To provide a safe healing environment that empowers people to address their unique health needs so they may live their best lives.

Vision Statement:

Natural Path Healthcare was created with the vision of providing more than just cookie cutter treatments. Instead, we bring individualized care to our patients. Utilizing a variety of treatment modalities we create a plan that meets your unique needs and lifestyle. During follow up, we make any necessary plan adjustments, to ensure your plan meets your current needs. Some of the treatment modalities we incorporate include: botanical medicine, supplements, prescription medications, nutrition, counseling, lifestyle modifications, mind body medicine, health education, and physical medicine.

Additionally, we understand that in order to truly get healthy, it is important to understand your own health. Therefore, it is our goal to educate our patients and the broader community, providing accessible and easy to understand information related to healthcare topics that matter to you. We aspire to do this through online psychoeducational groups, educational videos, and informational posts, so keep an eye on our social media for updates.

For those individuals living in Washington state, we offer naturopathic medicine services via telehealth or in home visit. Additionally, we offer teleconsultation visits for those living outside of Washington state, so that people around the world who may not have access to naturopathic medicine in their local area can learn more about this healing medicine.
