As an ND, Dr. Wulsin is a primary care physician trained in a broad range of medical traditions. He is currently licensed by the State of Washington to practice as a Naturopathic Physician (reg.#613) and an acupuncturist (reg.#85).
Dr. Wulsin received premedical training with an undergraduate honors degree from the University of California at Santa Cruz. After a few years of travel and work in Asia, Africa and South America, he returned to the Johns Hopkins University for an MA in International Relations. Subsequent work with natural resource management in developing countries landed me in Seattle. Refocusing on healing work with people inspired him to complete formal training in naturopathic and traditional Chinese medicine at John Bastyr College of Naturopathic Medicine and the NW Institute of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine during the 1980s. Dr. Wulsin earned an MPH at the University of Washington specializing in global health, nutrition ad health care capacity building.
The licensed physician holding an ND degree represents completion of a fully accredited four year graduate education in modern medical sciences and therapeutics. This includes academic and clinical training with nutrition therapy, botanical medicine, physical medicine, hydrotherapy, psychological counseling, homeopathic medicine, acupuncture, and natural childbirth. To become a licensed acupuncturist, Dr. Wulsin passed state and national board examinations after graduating from an accredited three year academic education in traditional Chinese medicine and clinical training in the art of acupuncture.
Naturopathic medicine supports the body, mind and spirit to restore an optimal state of health. The practice of naturopathic medicine has roots in the “Eclectic school” of MDs which thrived for a century from the 1830′s, European and indigenous American botanical traditions and related healing systems, Homeopathy, nature cure, spinal and soft tissue manipulation, and psychology. Naturopathy remains compatible and frequently synchronous with traditional healing systems practiced in India, China, Africa and South America. In a contemporary culture of scientific knowledge, computer chips, information, precision technology and economic priorities, naturopathic medicine is able to respond to a wide variety of individual or institutional needs.
