In addition to private practice she’s worked in such settings as the Chronic Fatigue, HIV/AIDS, and International Refugee clinics at Harborview Medical Center, two addictions treatment and rehab centers, a nursing home for chronic illness and spinal cord injuries, and several community clinics, in Seattle, Washington.

She maintains a large pharmacy of GMP-certified and Health Canada approved herbal medicines and nutritional supplements and is very interested in ecology and nutrition and their relationship to health and disease.

Donna has completed a 200 hour Functional Medicine course sponsored by the Southern California University of Health Sciences, qualifying toward the 300 hours required for diplomacy with the American Clinical Board of Nutrition.

Functional medicine shares many of the same intents and principles as Chinese Medicine, recognizing our bodies to be complex interconnected webs.  As a systems-oriented approach it looks at the whole person – including environmental inputs – with the goal of identifying root cause/s of dysfunction and disease and treating with a personalized approach.  These imbalances are the true causes of disease.

But they are also the precursors – the first signs that real disease or impairment is impending. – making Functional Medicine a truly preventive medicine.

Getting to the root cause involves much more than just treating symptoms.  With its science-based emphasis, Functional Medicine relies heavily on specialty lab tests that identify nutritional, metabolic, and hormone imbalances, immune and digestive dysfunctions, and toxic overloads.  Once identified these can be treated using well-studied nutritional interventions, herbs, supplements, lifestyle changes and other ‘natural’ means.
