Dr. Valerie Phillips ND (Dr. Val)
After growing up in Los Angeles on french fries and microwave burritos, I developed an early interest in natural health. I pursued this interest in and out of hospitals and research labs, universities and graduate institutions across the southland, and the up north land. With authentic nerdiness I studied for many years. After finally graduating from Bastyr University outside Seattle, I became a Naturopathic Doctor (ND), a somewhat parallel track to your more mainstream MD or DO degree. I chose this route because I was fascinated with ancient systems of medicine, such as Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine. After experiencing some personal health set backs in college, I was disappointed with the narrow scope of western medicine's approach to nutrition and the power of natural substances to promote health and prevent disease. I am immensely grateful to do the work that I do. I'm happy when I can help people to overcome the physical shackles of poor vitality, nutritional and hormonal imbalances, run away inflammation, toxicity, joint pain, moodiness, sleeplessness, chronic dehydration, infections.... etc.
Set up a half hour consult and we can talk about what's going on with you.
