Naturopathic medicine is based on the belief that the human body has an innate healing ability. Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) teach their patients to use diet, exercise, lifestyle changes and cutting edge natural therapies to enhance the body’s ability to ward off and combat disease. Naturopaths are also licensed to prescribe medications.
NDs create a comprehensive treatment plan that blends the best of modern medical science and traditional natural medical approaches to treat disease and restore health. They treat the whole person by breaking down the barriers to self-healing. Naturopathy is used as a preventative wellness prescription as well as targeted towards root illnesses.
Patti Mullen, ND, LMP
Dr. Mullen’s passion for physical medicine has been a life long journey. Her path started when she was injured participating in gymnastics as a teenager and began physical therapy for rehabilitation. Seeing potential in helping many people regain an active lifestyle and function, she became involved at a physical therapy clinic in 1986. This work lead to a Bachelors’ degree in Athletic Training from Washington State University in 1994. After college, she continued to work at physical therapy clinics and as an ACE certified personal trainer at Pro Sports Club in 1995. During her time at Pro Club she coached triathletes, runners, taught group fitness and spinning classes, and worked mostly with individuals getting back to fitness after injury. Patti was further inspired to keep helping other heal physically, and so she earned her massage license in 2000, providing primarily medical massage as an LMP. Wishing to play an even greater role in her client’s health care she completed her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University in 2012.
As a healthcare provider, Dr. Mullen believes that the body has the innate ability to heal itself. The goal of treatment is to assist that ability and facilitate the healing process. Focusing primarily on orthopedics, injury recovery, chronic pain and sports injury, she knows the body is capable of healing from the inside out. This facilitation of healing can be accomplished by bodywork, diet and life style modifications, herbal medicine and nutritional supplements.
Throughout the course of her professional career in healthcare, Dr. Mullen has maintained a healthy lifestyle herself. She has completed many 5k, 10k, ½ marathons, and marathons, as well as competing in Sprint distance, Olympic distance, ½ Ironman, and Ironman triathlons. Her other activities include hiking, rock climbing, skiing and climbing a few mountains around the Pacific NW with her supportive husband, young son, and faithful dog.
