Dr. Erin Thorne is a licensed naturopathic doctor practicing in Seattle, WA. She attended the accredited National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) in Portland, Oregon and received two degrees, a Naturopathic Doctorate (ND) degree and a Master's of Science in Integrative Medical Research (MSiMR).
Dr. Thorne completed her residency training at Holistique Medical Center in Bellevue. Her residency training emphasized primary care, woman hormones, chronic fatigue, regenerative medicine, and nutritional IV therapies to name a few.
Dr. Thorne approaches medicine from a naturopathic and functional medicine perspective. This approach involves treating the root cause of disease. For instance, autoimmune disease doesn't manifest in the body overnight. For example, the development of autoimmune diseases like Hashimoto's or Lupus, is related to a compilation of factors, including inflammation, hormone imbalance, blood sugar dysregulation and even genetics. Conventional approach is to prescribe steroids or thyroid hormones for the rest of your life. Here at Thrive NW we look at the whole person and investigate the root cause of the illness to prevent flares or further progression of the disease.
As a primary care naturopathic physician, Dr. Thorne is devoted to treating patients with an individualized approach and a manageable health plan that can be immediately applied. Additionally, having a master’s degree in Integrative Medical Research, Dr. Thorne incorporates an evidence-based approach to treat patients.
Dr. Erin Thorne is a licensed naturopathic doctor in the state of Washington who has dedicated her career to maximizing the health and well-being of women.
She’s also the child of two alcoholic parents.
Her intensely personal experience with alcohol, along with seeing so many women who struggle with drinking, substance abuse, anxiety, depression, or PTSD, led Dr. Thorne to create this healing space. She understands that this is about more than willpower, that these mental health concerns are far more complex than many people realize.
Left unchecked, they also can lead to physical and hormonal problems that need to be addressed, such as weight gain, fatigue, mood swings, PMS, hair loss, or eating disorders.
That’s why a blend of mind and body healing is necessary for effective treatment: Literature and therapy can be powerful in addressing the factors driving alcohol use or other concerns, but patients also need nutrition and physiology support to repair themselves physically.
Dr. Thorne brings it all together, determining a personalized plan for every patient, and helping them reach their mental and physical health goals.
If alcohol is affecting your life, your well-being, your sense of self, you’re not alone—and you’re not broken. You’re just stuck. But you can move forward. All it takes to start is one step.
