Dr. Katherine Walker ND, IFMCP is a Naturopathic and Functional Medicine Primary Care Physician working to optimize health and wellness for the entire family. She graduated from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland OR and solidified her understanding of the continuum of health and disease through completion at the Institute for Functional Medicine Program. She believes the only way to true health is by engaging her practice with a whole-person approach; because as we all intuitively know – it’s all connected.
Functional and integrative medicine treats the underlying issues. With this type of medicine, the patient is cared for by identifying and modifying the factors that fuel symptoms and diseases. She has advanced training in women’s and men’s health, hormone balancing, gynecology, fertility, mental health, thyroid conditions, sleep disturbance, adrenal fatigue, autoimmune, digestive complaints, complex inflammatory conditions and chronic disease. Dr. Walker interweaves conventional and integrative modalities in her individualized treatment plans. Her top priority is preventative medicine deeply rooted in health optimization through actionable, lifestyle-based solutions.
She has recently been recognized by her peers in Portland Monthly’s Top Naturopathic Physicians multiple years in a row.
Dr. Walker loves being active and spends many hours with her dogs. Her love for nutrition runs deep, and so she can often be found reading recipes or cooking.
