I’m Mark Fredericksen, naturopathic physician at NatureWorks Health Clinic. Naturopaths are licensed primary care physicians in the State of Washington. We seek to find ways both to treat the body naturally and to encourage it to do the job of healing itself. If you are on this site, you may be ready to think a little more broadly than just using traditional western medicine.
As a naturopathic physician I can help you with both traditional western approaches and more natural ones as well. Together we can encourage your body to do its own work a little more effectively.
How does this natural medicine process work? Not a lot different than any other doctor's office you've been to, except we spend a lot more time talking about your health. Frequently, minor symptoms and health issues that you have learned to live with add up to provide clues as to where your chief complaint begins. Included with the interview is typically a physical examination specific to the complaint, or more broadly in the case of full annual/employmen/work physicals, which are also available.
What About Lab Tests?
The larger medical insurance companies cover naturopathic care. I have contracts with Regence, Premera, Aetna, Cigna, and Uniform health plans. These can be billed from my office.
