History of our Clinic

Bothell Natural Health was started by Dr. Helen Palmer over 30 years ago. It was previously called Bothell Naturopathic Clinic. Dr. Palmer provided individualized treatments to her patients in her Bothell location for much of her years in practice.

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, DC, selected Dr. Bowen to continue the traditions and care that were common in Dr. Palmer’s practice. Dr. Bowen transitioned into seeing Dr. Palmer’s patients (and new patients as well) beginning in January of 2007. Since taking over the legacy of Dr. Palmer, Dr. Bowen has continued to provide excellent care to her patients.

In the past decade, Dr. Bowen has grown to specialize in digestive, autoimmune and complex cases. She is a Board Fellow in Naturopathic Gastroenterology (FABNG) and is also Mold-Literate Certified. Dr. Bowen, ND, FABNG, is now able to provide telemedicine for patients inside of Washington state and educational consultations for clients outside of Washington state through her 100% virtual practice model.

Dr. Bowen goes beyond symptoms to get to the root cause of your illness. She’s ready to be your own personal health detective!

In 2023, we welcomed Dr. Amanda Tieu into our Bothell Natural Health family! Dr. Bowen and Dr. Tieu have been working together in one capacity or another since 2015 and they mutually decided that Dr. Tieu would make a fabulous addition to BNH. In addition to practicing as a Primary Care Physician, Dr. Tieu specializes in dermatology, mental health, chronic pain, hormone balance in addition to having some overlapping experience with Dr. Bowen in the areas of treating digestive conditions and autoimmunity.

What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic Medicine is a school of medicine that focuses on using the least harmful treatments (such as diet and lifestyle counseling) to correct illness. Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) believe in finding and removing the root cause of illness.
