History of the Clinic

The Bothell Natural Health Clinic was originally started by Dr. Helen Palmer well over 20 years ago. It was previously called Bothell Naturopathic Clinic. Dr. Palmer provided individualized treatments to her patients in the same location for much of her years in practice. Dr. Bowen transitioned into seeing Dr. Palmer’s patients (and new patients as well) beginning in January of 2007. After faithfully serving her patients for so many years, we were all shocked by the passing of Dr. Palmer in November 2006. Dr. Palmer’s husband, Rick Waling, selected Dr. Bowen to continue the traditions and care that were common in Dr. Palmer’s practice. Since taking over the legacy of Dr. Palmer, Dr. Bowen has continued to provide excellent care to her patients.
