In 2003, Dr. Hibbs was chosen by his peers as a semifinalist in Seattle magazine's "Top Docs" in the alternative women’s health providers category.

In addition, he has authored textbook chapters on environmental allergies, managing colds and influenza naturally, environmental medicine and naturopathic depuration therapies.

Healing Philosophy

Dr. Hibbs believes that following the principles of naturopathic medicine, most importantly respecting the body's ability to heal itself and the healing powers of nature, when combined with cooperation and coordination of all the patient's health care providers, will bring about the best possible individual care. He uses nutrition, plant medicine, cleansing or depuration therapies, diet and lifestyle modification, counseling and homeopathy in his practice and believes that good food, sleep, exercise and a strong purpose in life are essential for health and happiness.
