About Tiffany Bloomingdale, ND

I am a licensed naturopathic physician 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 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. My lived experience continues to inform my work as a doctor and health consultant today by deeply informing my ability to empathize and partner with patients, clients and their families.

I have practiced 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 opened Avant-garde Healing Arts in October which is located on Mercer Island as well as my home office 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’ve practiced yoga for over a decade and have training in Meridian Yoga Therapy – a body-based therapy that beautifully rounds-out and complements traditional naturopathic tools. I’m excited to be currently enrolled in a 200-hour virtual yoga teacher training with The Yoga Dojo! I am also pursuing additional study in the realm of biotherapeutic drainage with Dr. Dickson Thom and look forward to brining this into my work beginning summer 2021.

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. 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
