Dr. thao nguyen

My name is Thao Nguyen and I received my Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University in 2021. During my time at Bastyr, I completed additional training in craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation, kinesio taping, aromatherapy, foot reflexology and environmental medicine. In 2015, I completed the Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) from California State University, Los Angeles.

In 2010, my father exhibited drug-induced hepatitis in addition to other chronic conditions. At that time, he was taking eight different medications and not knowing why. I reviewed the list of medications and researched the mechanism of action and its side effects. My goal was to wean him off the prescriptions that I felt confident I could replace safely with dietary modifications. The utilization of food as medicine. Within six months, my father’s liver enzymes returned to normal and I safely eliminated six out of the eight medications. I witnessed first-hand, what dietary changes can do and if we allow our bodies the chance to heal, most of the time it will.

He is now 85 years young, self-reliant, healthy and thriving. This journey with my father led me to discover Naturopathic Medicine.

I am also passionate about mental health, which I approach in a holistic manner to include the mind, the body and spirit. I am not dogmatic in my approach to healing. My approach to mental health is influenced by the teachings of: Esther Perel (Belgian psychotherapist) and Sadhguru (Yoga mystic visionary) who founded The Isha Foundation, The Socratic Method and The Stoics.

I feel strongly about the importance of a patient/provider connection that fosters the feeling of safety, where patients feel valued, seen and heard. It must be a good fit and in order to facilitate this, I offer a free 15-minute consult with new patients.

When I am not connecting with patients, you can find me solo in the mountains, by a body of water, with my two cats, bird watching and being an alchemist in the kitchen.
