About Dr. Lara Litov, Naturopathic Doctor
Lara Litov, ND is a third generation Washingtonian. It was her world travels that first introduced her to integrative and traditional medicines. During a trip to Indonesia she contracted Malaria. She was taken to a hospital in Singapore where, in addition to the lifesaving conventional treatments, she was referred to Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine providers from the local community who helped her regain her strength, vitality, and health.
Upon her return to the US, she sought the care of a Naturopathic Physician well versed in tropical diseases. It was at this point she decided to pursue a career in Naturopathic Medicine focusing on honoring and utilizing the best of both conventional and complementary treatments.
Her role on your health care team is to integrate treatments and focus on finding evidence based ways to support healing and to reach optimal health. After more than 20 years in practice, Dr. Litov is a powerful advocate for bringing all forms of medicine to the table, doing the research on what are the best options and integrations and helping return her patients to optimal well-being.
“Conventional medicine saved my life and Naturopathic & Integrative Medicine restored my health and well-being”.
Consistent with her beliefs she has practiced in many settings. She practiced in rural Maine before being hired at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, teaching medical students and practicing in the hospital clinic. She returned to her native Western Washington with her family in 2001 as a staff physician for the Skagit Valley Medical Center, before opening a private practice based in Bellevue, Washington in 2006.
