Dr. Monica Xu (ND) is a US trained and licensed primary care naturopathic physician, who applies functional medicine in her practice and utilizes lab tests to identify the root causes of symptoms. She treats acute and chronic conditions in adults and children (one year and up) with herbal medicine, homeopathy, nutritional supplements as well as diet and lifestyle advice.
“I believe in using minimal intervention to restore the imbalances in the body,” says Monica, who often emphasizes simplicity as the key in treating clients.
Her areas of expertise include but are not limited to: digestive disorders such as GERD, inflammatory bowel diseases and leaky gut syndrome; women’s health conditions such as thyroid and hormonal issues, painful or irregular periods and menopause complications; sleep and mood disorders, as well as children’s immunity and development.
Originally from Beijing, she received her Bachelor Degree in Nutritional Science from Pennsylvania State University. Upon her graduation, she joined the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and conducted research projects involving iron deficiency related diseases in West Africa. Following her passion in helping people to overcome health challenges and attracted by the principles of natural medicine, she completed medical training and a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine degree with Bastyr University in Kenmore, Washington and received further training at the New England School of Homeopathy.
Prior to joining IMI, Monica was a primary care naturopathic physician at Vitality Medispa Medical Clinic in Seattle and Holistic Health Clinic at Tacoma. She also served as a naturopathic advisor at Northwest Functional Wellness. Later she moved to Beijing and joined an international orthopedic rehabilitation center in helping patients recovering from surgery and traumas.
