Spokane Washington Naturopathic Doctor
Naturopathic medicine, also known as naturopathy, is a prevention and wellness-centered approach to healthcare. Naturopathic physicians use a functional medicine approach that focuses on finding the root cause, not masking your symptoms with medications or unnecessary treatments.
Dr. Heather Overland, ND LAc is downtown Spokane’s premier naturopathic physician and licensed acupuncturist. Her focus is on providing the highest quality care that provides the most effective results. Her treatments are holistic, minimally invasive, comprehensive and individualized to your specific needs. Doctor Overland’s treatment decisions are based on an assessment of current clinical and scientific evidence as well as a careful evaluation of you as a whole person, not just your diagnosis.
Dr. Overland may prescribe treatments such as bodywork and botanical medicine, but she may also need to prescribe pharmaceutical medications, order x-rays and laboratory tests. While Dr. Overland is skilled in a variety of treatment modalities and in-office procedures, in order to provide you the best care, she may also need to refer you to other healthcare providers and specialists.
Naturopathic physicians are recognized as primary care providers in Washington, however, Overland Wellness isn’t a routine primary care physician’s office. Overland Wellness provides holistic, treatment-focused wellness care that works best in addition to your established primary care and medical specialist team. Whether your other doctors are located in Spokane or out of the area, Dr. Overland is happy to coordinate care with them to provide you with the best multi-disciplinary approach for you.
Routine Medical Services
The Naturopathic difference.
Whether you need someone to listen to your lungs when you have a cough or to finally address the digestive problem that has been troubling you, Dr. Heather Overland is ready to help you. When suffering from a mountain biking accident, skin irritation after spending time in the river, or digestive troubles from trying new cuisine, Overland Wellness can provide the care to help you get feeling better.
Dr. Overland can provide a routine medical evaluation and immediate treatment for most problems seen in a doctor’s office. Treatments can include procedures such as minor wound care, ear lavage (blockage removal) and musculoskeletal injury evaluation. Visits can focus on acute illness diagnosis, chronic disease management and even recovery from jet lag.
The Overland Wellness naturopathic difference in these routine care options is that Dr. Overland will always prioritize using the least-invasive and most natural options for treatment and diagnosis. Whether it is organic vapor rub for chest congestion, thorough nutrition evaluation and vitamin supplementation to improve energy or the use of bodywork and lifestyle medicine to reduce stress, Dr. Overland recognizes the value of a gentle and natural approach for your care. The naturopathic perspective treats you as a whole person, acknowledging both your complex history and future goals.
