Gastrointestinal, gall bladder, pancreatic, and liver problems are areas where naturopathic doctors in general have much to offer; the doctors at Medella Optimal Health are no exception. Dr. Miller is extremely passionate about gastrointestinal (GI) disease because she suffered for many years from debilitating pain, gas, bloating, and inability to eat many foods without becoming very sick. Only after finding naturopathic medicine, was Dr. Miller able to find relief and a cure to her problems. Dr. Miller has been extensively trained and mentored by Dr. Yarnell, who has taught gastroenterology at Bastyr University for the past 10 years. Dr. Yarnell has also written the standard textbook in the field, Natural Approach to Gastroenterology 2nd edition.
Whatever your digestive concerns, Dr. Miller utilizes a proven blend of science and nature to uncover and treat the root cause of your disease and not just treat the symptoms. She can usually help alleviate symptoms as you work through your healing journey, but her main goal is to help rehabilitate your GI tract for the long term.
“I just wanted to say thank you to Dr.Miller! After seeing countless doctors for my fatigue and digestive issues,with no improvement in my symptoms, I had lost hope that I would ever feel like myself again. Dr. Miller listened to me, and without her I would not be the vital and energetic person I am today.”- Chronic Fatigue and IBS Patient
