About Dr. Dymond
I am a Bastyr University trained Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine. Through Bastyr, I received the most rigorous training in alternative medicine available in the United States. While this included the same basic medical science education a conventional doctor would receive, my clinical training was in the use of natural, low force therapies.
I worked for four years at the Bastyr University Research Institute, one of the first NIH-funded institutes studying alternative medicine. This experience taught me how to evaluate medical research critically, a skill I continually bring to my present work.
Prior to Bastyr, I worked as a holistic bodyworker for six years while studying movement therapy, Ortho-Bionomy, and Chinese herbology. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Integrated Health Studies from New College of California.
