About Tiffany Bloomingdale, ND

I am a licensed naturopathic physician and certified yoga teacher based in Seattle, Washington. Originally from upstate New York (Go Syracuse Orange!), I completed my naturopathic medical training at the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) in Portland, Oregon. I became certified to teach yoga through a 200-hour program with The Yoga Dojo, based in Richmond, VA and also have training in Meridian Yoga Technique.

I began my personal journey to naturopathic medicine as a patient during my college years. At that time, a seed was planted in regards to the impact mental and emotional stress can have on the physical body. As I found success in relieving my own gastrointestinal health issues, with the guidance of a naturopathic doctor and licensed acupuncturist, I sought to pursue this work professionally. As I made my way through naturopathic school, I was challenged in terms of health issues surrounding my thyroid and reproductive system – namely hypothyroidism and a benign (but large!) cyst on my fallopian tube. I also experienced panic attacks during this time. Each personal encounter I have had with health concerns has taught me so much about what healing means – how wildly unique it is, how energetic it is, how humbling and rich it can be. My lived experience continues to inform my work as a yoga teacher, doctor and health consultant today by deeply informing my ability to empathize and partner with patients, clients and their families.

I have practiced naturopathy throughout the east coast: from New York, to Virginia and Massachusetts in solo and group settings, as well as virtually. My fiancé and I relocated to the Seattle area to be closer to family in early 2020. I currently work with clients and patients through my virtual practice, Avant-garde Healing Arts, based out our home in the Burien neighborhood. I also work collaboratively with the team at Le Center in Bellevue, WA.

My clients range in age from newborns to elderly folks. I offer naturopathic support for everything from general wellness to complex chronic health concerns. My specialty is in constitutional homeopathy: I love developing rapport with my patients and bringing an energetic perspective to their health concerns. Homeopathy bridges the mental, emotional and physical worlds.

I am committed to anti-racism work and continue to educate myself on the intersections of health, medicine, social justice, oppressive systemic policies and structures. Knowledge of natural medicine belongs in everyone’s hands and it’s true roots – which often belong to indigenous communities – deserve acknowledgement and deep reverence. I aim to amplify the cultures, stories and history behind modalities I use in practice.

I am currently exploring the world of biotherapeutic drainage with Dr. Dickson Thom and look forward to brining this into my work soon.

I find great personal and clinical inspiration from astrology, gemstone therapy, somatic experiencing, polyvagal theory, human design and shamanism. I weave elements of these schools of thought into my writing and care plans often. I believe that your healing is an art and it’s my goal to provide information and counsel while always honoring your autonomy and choices.

The feminine gifts of intuition and connection carry with them the power not only to understand and empathize, but also to revitalize and heal. – Pamela Sky Jeanne, ND, Healing Matters
