Dr. Shawn Postma
Dr. Shawn Postma is a Naturopathic Medical Doctor who helps people with stress-related issues such as fatigue, anxiety, irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, hormonal imbalances, cancer, and Lyme disease.
He believes that the nervous system is the symphony conductor of the body and when under chronic stress it greatly diminishes overall health and vitality. By addressing the root cause, he is able to get the lasting results his patients desire.
In addition to offering naturopathic medicine, Dr. Postma specializes in various mind-body techniques. He has received advanced training in biofeedback and utilizes research-based HeartMath® technology to retrain and nourish the nervous system. He also teaches mindfulness-based stress reduction therapy (MBSR) as an effective tool for managing stress.
Dr. Postma holds a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University and a B.A. in Sociology from the University of Puget Sound. His medical residency training was focused on providing IV therapy for individuals facing cancer and other chronic illness. He has served as adjunct faculty at Bastyr, teaching counseling and homeopathy.
A few unique qualities about Dr. Postma are his perseverance, compassionate presence, and openness. He is a self-taught juggler, nature-enthusiast, family man, and he loves learning about other cultural approaches to medicine and healing—both past and present.
