Dr. Jennifer Lush, ND was born and raised in North Seattle and Southwest Washington. She has a rich family history in Shoreline and Edmonds as her father’s family moved to North Seattle in the 1950s to work at the Kings Garden/CRISTA organization. She spent many summers playing on the Edmonds Beach and shopping as a teenager at the Aurora Village Mall.

 

Graduating from Raymond High School in 1990, Dr. Lush earned her BA in psychology (emphasizing the biology of behavior and neuroscience) from the University of Washington in 1994. During undergrad, she focused on public health and HIV/AIDS prevention in Latin America, working in medical clinics in rural Paraguayan villages.

 

In 2001, she earned her ND degree from Bastyr University. While a graduate student at Bastyr, Dr. Lush continued to research alternative medical approaches to HIV/AIDS and breast cancer. She has contributed work to Breast Cancer, Beyond Prevention, published in 2002.

 

Dr. Lush owned and operated a natural health clinic and private practice in Seattle from 2001 to 2006. She was also a medical researcher for Salugenecists, Inc. from 2003 to 2006. In the spring of 2005, she moved to Anchorage, Alaska and practiced medicine at Avante Medical Center until June 2009.

 

In the spring of 2009, she came back to her roots in Seattle, Washington and joined the team at West Seattle Natural Medicine. In July 2009, she had the opportunity to join a medical team working with rural villagers on the Amazon River in Peru. She has also been seeing patients at Evergreen Integrative Medicine in Bellevue and Shoreline Natural Medicine since 2009.

 

Dr. Lush enjoys working with the whole family, providing holistic primary care medicine. Additionally, she has expertise in treating allergies, balancing hormones and providing quality women's health medicine. 

Outside of practicing medicine, Dr. Lush enjoys staying active in the beautiful PNW outdoors, as well as running in ½ marathons, yoga, knitting, writing, cooking and being surrounded by the abundance of her friends' and family's children.

 

Volunteering and traveling in third world countries is also a passion that she hopes to continue throughout her life.

 

Dr. Lush has been listed as one of Seattle Met Magazine's Top Doctors and is a current member of the Washington Association of Naturopathic Doctors. 

DR. LUSH MATERNITY UPDATE:

 

As some of you may have noticed Dr. Lush is expecting a child in September 2022. However, she may be induced early so starting in June 2022 she will be on alert. She is planning on seeing patients as normal up until her week of induction or childbirth so feel free to schedule accordingly. However, she will be taking approximately 4 weeks off for maternity leave so if you'd like to ensure you see her, please schedule sooner than later (June/July and early August will be better than late August/September). Also, medication refills, referrals and lab orders could take up to 14 days instead of our typical 7 days so please plan extra time for those requests if they are outside of an appointment. If you need to schedule an appointment first we will let you know when you contact the clinic.
