Dr. Northrop is a licensed Naturopathic Physician in the state of Washington, having earned her ND degree from Bastyr University in 2019. She has been in clinical practice for three years, and has extensive training in diet/nutrition, supplementation/nutraceuticals, homeopathic prescribing, hydrotherapy, mind-body medicine, and botanical medicine/herbalism. Her guiding philosophy is "treat the person, not the disease". She believes the best health outcomes arise from encouragement of each person's innate ability to heal themselves. She walks alongside her patients as an ally on the healing journey, and encourages focus on foundational elements of health such as diet, hydration, exercise, and loving connection. Without these, a person can never truly get well. She utilizes highly individualized and time-tested treatments tailored specifically to each person's unique constitution. Additionally, she has studied medical astrology, alchemy, Ayurveda, and bits of TCM and Five Element Theory. Her areas of interest and expertise include: gut health, thyroid health, natural hormone balancing, natural mood balancing and brain health, environmental medicine, detoxification, chronic disease, autoimmunity, and the connection between mind-body-spirit-soul.
