My name is Dr. Sheetal Woods, I am a licensed Naturopathic Physician in the state of Washington. I received my Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University in Kenmore, WA. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Art History and Bachelor of Science in Biology from UCLA. I have always been passionate about science, but I am especially passionate about the struggles we as human beings face that become obstacles to achieving health and wellness. I strove to find a way to not only help other people with these struggles, but also myself. Over the years I battled with my weight as well as a debilitating digestive disorder, Ulcerative Colitis. Through my education at Bastyr University, a pioneer institution in the natural medicine field here in Washington as well as through my personal healing process, I learned how to guide people through the difficult journey of healing the body, mind and spirit. Our bodies are amazing and extremely resilient, once we are able to remove the obstacles to cure we can achieve optimal health.
During my Doctoral studies, I studied contemporary western medicine as well as Ayurveda, traditional Chinese Medicine, European nature cure, homeopathy and western herbalism. I am also a certified Ayurvedic Therapist. Over the years I have come to focus on Autoimmune disease, Gastrointestinal disorders (IBD, IBS, etc), Chronic disease, Women's health and Hormonal disorders/imbalances. I practice yoga therapy and Craniosacral therapy to utilize the body’s innate ability to heal itself, and I am huge proponent of community health and education. I look forward to meeting you and working with you on your journey to health and wellness!
