At Bastyr Center for Natural Health, it's all about people. Our naturopathic doctors, acupuncturists, nutritionists and counselors offer health care to thousands of patients each year, and we have made it our goal to provide the best care for every patient, every day.

The words of our patients, providers and student clinicians say it best.

"I think the most common misperception about nutrition is that there's one correct way to eat, one cure-all supplement. ... Each person needs to decide, based on how they feel physically, mentally, and emotionally, what foods work best for their body. Stop worrying about the latest fad diet, supplement, or 'superfood.' "


A portrait of Kristen Spitz

"Instead of looking at a person as their disease, we look at a person in the entire context of their experience."
