Meet Dr. Ciara Lumaj, ND

Licensed Naturopathic Doctor

Dr. Ciara Lumaj's passion for natural medicine stems from her Albanian heritage, which places a high value on natural remedies. This interest led her to pursue a Naturopathic Doctorate at Bastyr University, where she concentrated on men's and women's health, gastrointestinal conditions, thyroid issues, menstrual disorders, and oncology.

Her focus on women's health was inspired by her own experience with endometriosis, motivating her to explore its causes and potential healing methods. Additionally, Dr. Lumaj delved into oncology, influenced by her mother's Stage IV cancer diagnosis during medical school. This personal encounter provided her with a deep understanding of the complexities of cancer treatment and its impact on patients and caregivers.

Dr. Lumaj takes a comprehensive approach to healthcare, utilizing extensive laboratory tests, nutraceuticals, supplements, herbs, and dietary and lifestyle modifications. She values patient collaboration in setting health goals and plans, ensuring a patient-centric approach to wellness and exercising a proactive, rather than reactive, stance towards health outcomes.

She emphasizes the importance of preventative medicine and offers comprehensive women's wellness exams, including breast examinations and PAP smears, alongside the optimization of general health for both men and women.

Why Naturopathy

Why Naturopathy?

Naturopathic medicine doesn’t stop at symptoms, it dives deeper to understand the core and cause to better treat and heal. Often in conventional medicine, the person becomes separate from their body, causing opposition rather than conjunction. This is the beauty of naturopathic medicine - addressing all the factors of the person to reconnect them wholly.

I believe in treating the whole person – mind, body, and spirit. By combining evidence-based naturopathic medicine with traditional healing methods, I aim to address the root causes of gynecological issues and support women in achieving optimal health, as well as supporting those with eating disorders, cancer, and gut issues. Together, we'll embark on a healing journey tailored to your unique needs and goals.
