Dr. Erik Vose, N.M.D.

Dr. Erik Vose enthusiastically empowers and educates patients within the collaborative process of Naturopathic Medicine. He holds two degrees from Bastyr University in Seattle, WA as a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (2015), with a background in Health Psychology and Human Biology (2010). Dr. Vose completed a 2.5 year supervised apprenticeship where he successfully treated hundreds of chronic pain patients using prolotherapy and prolozone within the greater context of a holistic modern medical system. During this time Dr. Vose discovered that Naturopathic Medicine is uniquely positioned to provide insights in medical physiology, specifically the neuroendocrine, immune, and psychosocial elements of health as they relate to individual sensitivities within a greater pattern of illness.

Dr. Vose has additional training in Somatic Experiencing Trauma Therapy, Perineural Injection Therapy, homeopathic medicine, and oncology, which he incorporates into the management of chronic pain and other difficult-to-treat neurological conditions. As a second-generation physician, Dr. Vose realizes that simply suppressing symptoms does not provide long-term patient satisfaction. Instead, consistent and sustainable results require careful attention to details that reveal the root causes of illness and allow the transformation of the entire constellation of symptoms.
