Whole Health Naturopathy
Dr. Marnie Frisch is often asked what she specializes in and has come to realize that it is not a population or disease that she specializes in but in listening to patients and working cooperatively with them to find the best treatment plan.
Dr. Frisch is warm, compassionate, and skilled at meeting the patient where they are at to help them move forward to balanced health. Her specialty is in constitutional homeopathy but she uses all tools of naturopathic medicine. Dr. Frisch loves partnering with patients in their transition stages: from youth to adolescents through all stages of adulthood, including perimenopause, menopause, and andropause.
She has a particular interest in supporting children and families, women’s health and hormone challenges, thyroid issues, and gut health, including IBS, IBD, chronic constipation, vascular disorders, fatigue, stress, depression, anxiety, and the neuro-endo-immune system.
Dr. Frisch specializes in autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, MS, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, and vasculitis.
Dr. Frisch offers both primary and specialty medicine and excels at collaborating with other doctors and using diagnostic testing to investigate the cause of disease.
Dr. Frisch focuses on mental health and neurologic challenges (psycho-neuro-endocrine-immunology), including work around the MTHFR gene deletions, bioidentical hormone, and amino acid therapy.
Dr. Frisch is a graduate of Bastyr University and the founder of Whole Health Naturopathy. In addition to Naturopathic studies, Dr. Frisch studied homeopathy with Dr. Paul Herscu and Dr. Amy Rothenberg of the New England School of Homeopathy since 2004 and have been practicing medicine for almost fourteen years.
Her undergraduate training was at the University of Minnesota, where she graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology. There, Dr. Frisch spent a year studying communication between medical doctors and patients and wrote, “The Practice of Family Medicine from a Cultural Perspective: A Look at Communication between Healthcare Providers and Patient Populations.”
Dr. Frisch worked in patient care for women’s health clinics, community health clinics for homeless youth, and a private urology practice between her undergraduate and graduate work. She also spent six years as an owner of a whole-grain, organic bakery in Seattle.
She loves to spend time in nature, travels with her family, be involved in the Olympia community, and embrace the thrill of resting!
