The Ayurvedic and Naturopathic Medical Clinic was established in 1989 by Dr. Virender Sodhi in Edmonds, WA and relocated to the current location in Bellevue, WA in 1990. He was joined by his brother Dr. Shailinder Sodhi and his brother’s wife Dr. Anju Sodhi. Our doctors were among the first in the US to merge the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda and natural medicines with the advances of modern medical science.
Today, the collective medical and Ayurvedic experience of our doctors spans more than 75 years and enables us to be a world leader in providing the best complementary and alternative medicine. Each of the clinic doctors is capable of seeing any patient from new born care through the most advanced years. Together they provide a synergistic team of family doctors. Their combined areas of specialization ensure you and your family get all the support you need all under one roof - from our family to yours.
Our Naturopathic physicians can prescribe all medications (including controlled schedule VI and schedule V drugs). With broadened scope of medicine we are better able to serve the full needs of our patients. Incorporating pharmaceuticals and supplements when needed and working with each patient to regain health through physician supervised cleansing programs, diet adjustments, breathing techniques, exercise, stretches, meditation, relaxation treatments and mindfulness. As the patient regains a healthy balance, our doctors work with the patient to reduce and eliminate medicines and supplements when no longer needed.
By keeping up with the latest medical findings and tracking the enhanced efficacy of combining medical advances with holistic support for the body, we continue to provide our patients with best that healthcare has to offer. It is also why we excel as a teaching and post-graduate training clinic. Students and post-graduate naturopaths seek out our clinic for more advanced training and understanding of truly integrated medicine.
Our clinic has enjoyed great success since its founding with our biggest source of new patients from referrals from satisfied patients, many of whom we have taken care of for decades. We enjoy creating a community of happy and healthy families. Our patients come from nearby and from around the world to take advantage of our services. Our doctors provide care and guidance on-site in the clinic, via the phone, and via trips to certain locations.
The care and services we provide are based on the foundational principles of Ayurvedic and Naturopathic Medicine:
- Prevention and Wellness
- The healing power of nature (vis medicatrix naturae)
- Always identify and treat the cause (tolle causam)
- First do no harm (primum non nocere)
- Treat the whole person (tolle totum)
- The Doctor as Teacher (docere)
