“Dr. Carter chose a career in natural medicine because it represents a patient-centered, sustainable approach to healthcare.”

What To Expect

Dr. Carter offers an integrative approach to natural medicine, using the most appropriate combination of therapies for your well being. She rarely employs a single therapy, so her primary service offered is individualized, natural health care. This may include acupuncture, craniosacral therapy and other bodywork, lifestyle and nutritional counseling from an Eastern and Western perspective, botanical medicine, homeopathy, physical medicine, hydrotherapy, supplements, compassion, unconditional positive regard, and laughter.

Dr. Carter spends approximately 90 minutes with her patients. The first visit usually entails a detailed health history, a focused physical exam, and an acupuncture treatment or other hands-on therapies. Over time, the interview portion of the visit becomes less and the treatment time becomes longer. At the end of every visit, Dr. Carter provides her patients with a treatment plan, or a written description of recommendations made for improving her patient’s health. This plan may include dietary guidelines, lifestyle suggestions, supplement prescriptions, and/or lab work.

  • Let me start by saying that Dr. Elizabeth Carter is absolutely wonderful. I decided to find a naturopathic doctor to help me on my journey to getting healthier.

    I previously found out that I have adrenal fatigue and wanted to do something about it asap. I did some research and was delighted to find Dr.Carter. Not only does she have a practice in West Seattle (and Queen Anne). Her WS practice is very close to my house.She also has some evening appointments which is perfect since it is hard for me to leave work during the day.”
