Dr. Phillips is a proud graduate of Bastyr University in Seattle and has advanced certifications from the Naturopathic Medicine Institute, the Canadian Academy of Homeopathy, Carroll Institute of Natural Healing, and Upledger Institute International. She’s also a graduate of Northwest Healing and Intuitive Arts, which taught her ancient indigenous healing techniques for spiritual guidance and development, including Shamanic Medicine.

Her approach to healthcare is all about treating the whole person. She combines gentle therapies like homeopathy, craniosacral therapy, botanical medicine, hydrotherapy, and Shamanic energy healing to promote healing and wellness for everyone - from kids to adults to entire families and communities. She believes that a healthy lifestyle, balanced diet, and a positive sense of self are all the best forms of natural medicine.

Dr. Phillips uses Shamanic Medicine as a tool to connect with the spirit world, accessing ancient wisdom and guidance for her patients. She believes that Shamanic practices can provide a deeper understanding of the root causes of illness and help facilitate healing on the much needed spiritual level.

Julia McDonald, Nutrition & Mental Health Consultant

Interested in the "Weight To Go" Program?


Julia was born and raised in the Far East of Russia, where she got her first Master Degree in Engineering. During her school years she became interested in Natural Medicine due to her own health issues. As she was doing her research in this field, she had become fascinated with the connection between the mind and the body. After moving to the USA in 2005, she was very excited to find Bastyr University as it was offering a Masters in Nutrition and Health Psychology program which emphasized the very topic of her interest. She graduated from Bastyr in 2015 with both a Masters in Nutrition and Psychology. However this program has become just a foundation for further studies and deeper research. While at Bastyr, she joined Pacific Yoga Teacher training where she got her certificate in Yoga teaching, and is now finishing up her studying at the American Institute for Vedic Studies with the focus on Ayurveda and Vedic Astrology. She continuously takes classes in Theology, Vedic Philosophy, Slavic Healing traditions, Psychosomatics and Shamanism from a variety of schools.
