There is no one-size-fits-all approach to treating complex chronic illness.
Because of this, I am an eternal student –always searching for new naturopathic and conventional therapies to integrate into my practice. I am passionate about learning cutting edge concepts in medicine and alternative healing that enable me to develop individualized treatment plans for my patients. I enjoy listening to my patients’ stories and actively involving them in their health plan. I recognize the value in educating my patients so that they feel empowered to make their own decisions along their journey to health.
ABOUT DR. CHRISTINE SCHAFFNER
Growing up in a family of healthcare practitioners, after graduating from Bastyr as a board-certified Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Christine Schaffner chose to make her mark in a powerful and unique way, focusing on biological medicine – a sorely underexplored modality that supports the patient’s own innate ability to heal, rather than interrupting their physiology with medication and other prescriptive, symptom-based protocols.
With her widely diverse skill set, Dr. Schaffner combines both naturopathic, functional and conventional therapies to develop individualized treatment plans focusing on the underlying cause of complex chronic illness including:
- Lyme Disease
- Neurological Illnesses
- Sleep issues
- And a long list of other advanced health hurdles
Patients who visit Dr. Schaffner, or any of the world-famous clinics she helped create, typically have seen dozens of doctors and practitioners. Likewise, other Practitioners have come to her, after years of frustration, hoping to observe and learn her approach, addressing patients’ complex health concerns and creating a successful journey that inspires their own body to open up to it’s self-regulating and self-healing mechanisms.
Licensed in Washington State, Oregon, California, Montana, Washington DC (and coming soon: Arizona, Utah and Idaho), Dr. Schaffner also offers medical consultations via telemedicine.
