Welcome to Village Medicine

Holistic & Integrative GI Support


Pooping too much or too little aren’t the only reasons to see a GI specialist in Seattle. Yes, your gut health can affect your poop, but it can also affect and be affected by your mental health, endocrine system, immune system—virtually every system interacts with gut microbiota in some way.

Not surprisingly then, issues with your gut health can cause and be caused by other health conditions. Getting to the bottom of your gastrointestinal concerns should always be a high priority.

We partner with Gastroenterologists to provide an integrative and comprehensive plan for you to increase states of remission, cure and alleviate symptoms. You deserve to understand and be empowered with the information and tools to be an active participant in your healing.

At Village Medicine, you’ll find an integrative GI specialist in Seattle who will partner with you to support you through comprehensive testing, holistic care, and ongoing support.

Why See Our GI Specialist?


Education & Support

We don’t believe in simply giving you a diagnosis and prescription and then sending you on your way. We’ll walk you through all details and continue to support your GI health down the line.

Holistic Treatment

We’ll use your lab results to customize a holistic, science-backed treatment plan for improving your GI health and overall wellbeing.

Comprehensive Testing

Knowing how we can best support you and your GI health takes in-depth testing of your microbiota and other systems.

What to Expect

The GI Health Process

Your Consultation

During your first appointment, your provider will get to know you, any symptoms you’re experiencing, your medical history, and your prescribed medications. Depending on your needs and goals, they may recommend evaluating your GI health through testing. They’ll also make sure you feel truly seen and heard.

Your Treatment

No two treatment plans will look exactly the same, and that’s because we customize each treatment plan to the individual needs, goals, and lab results of each patient.

Some of our patients are surprised when they see their plan includes treatments that go beyond the scope of probiotics and dietary changes. When you’re treating interconnected, interrelated systems, there’s often a lot of crossover. Not all GI symptoms are rooted in the digestive tract.

Depending on the complex needs of the patient, some treatment plans may involve everything from probiotics to hypnotherapy to fecal transplants to acupuncture.

Your Ongoing Support

Your Village is here to provide ongoing health and wellbeing support for you and the entire family. Our multidisciplinary team of physicians and healers works in close collaboration to treat the whole person, not just the symptoms – both now and in every step of the journey.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you treat IBS?

How we treat irritable bowel syndrome depends entirely on the individual patient. Doctors often diagnose (or dismiss) any persistent GI symptoms as IBS and offer little help in managing them. The diagnosis doesn’t really tell you anything about what’s really going on. To treat your IBS symptoms and their underlying cause, we will likely need focus on your mental health through counseling and/or hypnotherapy.

What is leaky gut syndrome?

Leaky gut syndrome is a collection of symptoms that may be caused by a weakening of the intestinal lining, allowing toxins and bacteria to enter the bloodstream. The symptoms people report include bloating, diarrhea, gas, aches and pains, and food sensitivities.

How does your gut interact with the brain?

Your GI health and the health of your microbiome can directly affect your mental health. The gut communicates with the brain through the millions of nerve cells that line the gut and by releasing hormones into the bloodstream. The brain can cause issues with the gut, and the gut, as we continue to learn, can impact our mood and brain chemistry.
