Robin Sinclair, ND
Dr. Sinclair received her Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine from National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon in 2003. Prior to this she received her pre-medical education at Humboldt State University in Northern California. Her Bachelors in Science in Interdisciplinary Studies allowed her to create her own degree blending three of her passions, science, psychology and art. Her degree major was Biomedical Studies while her minor was in Biological Psychology, a budding field which deals with the neurotransmitters involved with behavior and mood. This combination of education served as a foundation to build upon with her Naturopathic training, and uniquely prepared her for her current practice focus on mood disorders.
After graduation Dr. Sinclair began practicing with Claudia Trombly, MD and Rosalyn Kenney, ARNP at Happy N' Healthy Family Medicine, a progressive medical clinic in Southern New Hampshire. Practicing in an integrative clinic helped to further Dr. Sinclair’s medical training and she enjoyed collaborating with her patients primary care physicians to best serve her patients. In addition to tuning her skills in Primary Care, Dr. Sinclair’s practice expanded into specializing in hormone re-balancing and treating digestive disorders.
While practicing in NH, Dr. Sinclair was the proud winner of New Hampshire Magazine’s Readers Choice award for Top Doctor, both 2010 and 2011!
While both her and her husband enjoyed living in New Hampshire and it was difficult for her to leave a thriving practice, in June 2011 they returned to Seattle to be closer to their family. Since arriving on the West Coast she has joined forces with Jennifer Lush, ND to create North Seattle Natural Medicine located in Edmonds, WA.
Why I became a naturopathic doctor
I became ill when I hit puberty. Almost overnight I went from being a healthy kid who was vibrant and full of energy to a miserable teenager who suffered from digestive disorders, hormonal and mood imbalances and overwhelming fatigue. After seeing several different physicians with no improvement to my health, my mom looked to Natural Medicine to help her struggling daughter. Being a stubborn teen I was reluctant to admit that the natural remedies that my mom had given me were truly helping. When I started my college career I learned about Naturopathic Medicine and knew that since I was helped so immensely with natural remedies, that it was my goal to help others find their way to wellness like I did.
I am glad that I have suffered with my own health problems because it has allowed me to be more understanding and compassionate to what my patients are going through. I know first hand how difficult it is to be sick, and how hard it can be to make the lifestyle changes needed and adopt a routine that brings you health. I use my compassion and understanding of both sides of illness as resource to help my patients on their path to wellness.

“Dr. Sinclair, Just a note to say thank you for everything you have done for me and my kids. You saved me! I have come such a long way since that first day I met you. Thank you.”
“Dr. Sinclair is the Chuck Norris of doctors!”

“Dear Dr. Sinclair, I want to express my sincere thanks to you for the care you provided me over the last 4-5 years. While I know you are humble and would not expect to receive accolades for what you perceive is your routine approach to medicine, you have been so kind, warm-hearted and genuine in the treatment of my health situation. I couldn't have asked for a better doctor at a time when I really needed the extra individual attention.”
“Dr. Robin, I cannot express adequately what a life line you have been for me. There was such security in knowing that no matter what health issues I had, you would listen with great compassion and then write up a plan of action to solve them. I am just so grateful to have been under your care and guidance for two whole years.”
“Dear Dr. Robin, Nothing I can do or say can fully express just how much of a role you have played in getting me to where I am today, Thank you!”
“Dr. Robin, Needed to drop you a note to tell you how much better I have been feeling since following your advice, it has helped immensely. I am able to sleep at least 6 hours and have had no hot flashes what so ever! Thank you for your wonderful knowledge.”
“Dr. Sinclair, you have made a huge difference in my life. In you I found a friend, someone who cared enough to look at all the piles if complaints and oddities of my life, body and mind, and believed in me. I could never express my gratitude - just thankful you chose your path, so fitting to a caring person such as you.”
“I can't say enough about Dr Sinclair...she is kind, understanding, gentle and incredibly smart. She restored my faith in doctors and I hadn't been to a doctor in more than 25 years! She has helped me in so many ways...the best thing about Dr Sinclair is that she is with you every step of the way. There is never a problem or an issue that is too small...you are important to her, you matter and that is a great gift. Thank you Dr Robin for everything...I hope you are my doctor forever!”
“Dr. Sinclair has changed our lives! We finally found a doctor who could explain all of our "strange" symptoms and offer natural solutions without synthetic medication and invasive surgery. The nicest thing is that she sits down with you and really listens and cares, two things that are hard to find in today's medical practice. Not only is she a medical genius, but she's a counselor and friend. The comfort that Dr. Sinclair gives to her patients is extraordinary. We have sent our family, friends, and colleagues to her and all came back with a smile on their face. She is a godsend. Even if you feel healthy, go meet her because she'll make you feel even better than you thought possible!”

“Thanks to your expert care, I not only understand better how to improve my health, but my health has improved greatly. As you know, I came to you bloated and tired. I had been to my primary care physician, who informed me that with a cholesterol count as high as mine - over 400 - I needed to get on Statin drugs to lower it. I protested that I did not want to put my liver at risk, and would rather just try a more natural way. His answer was, "You won't succeed that way. Nothing else will get this down for you." Then I saw you. Within two and a half months my cholesterol went down from 453 to 295! I got a little bounce back in my step, and I feel like I'm finally succeeding in getting my 60-year- old body to let go of these extra pounds. I still have a way to go yet, but at last I feel like I'm on my way in the right direction - the natural way. It's so much better to work with your body's natural mechanisms than to try to override them all the time with drugs. I wish more doctors would realize this and educate themselves in these areas. Thank you so very much!”
“I would like to say so many things, but I think in general I can say: " Dr. Sinclair, you gave me my life back.” I wish I could be in front of every person accessing the web to tell them how dedicated to the patients you are. My family appreciates all your help.”
“I am impressed with Dr. Sinclair's thorough approach to my health concerns. She has opened my eyes to the world of Naturopathy and her approach has gotten me and my health on the right track. I've not only continued in her care but have recommended many of my patients to her as well.”
