WHO IS BLUEBIRD WELLNESS?
Bluebird Wellness was founded in 2017 by me, Dr. Liz Carter.
We’re a 1 woman show. I’m a 1 woman show? You get the picture and it’s a pleasure to meet you!
I'm a naturopathic doctor and acupuncturist and I’ve always had a passion for providing people with high quality natural healthcare, regardless of income level. Since starting my practice in 2011 I've operated on a sliding slide in Seattle, WA, in order to make appointments affordable for people from all walks of life.
In our current healthcare climate of uncertainty, rising deductibles, less coverage, and a massively inflated and unregulated cost for services, I'm committed to providing a cost-effective alternative to as many people as I can.
Teaching and writing have always been a strong passion of mine, so I decided to develop an educational component to Bluebird Wellness by creating a number of e-books focused on the basics of health. Don't be fooled! These simple, practical suggestions and tools are exactly what I recommend to my patients every day. Straight-forward but deep changes make the greatest impact (way more than supplements!) of anything you could do for yourself.
I’m very committed to mentoring new practitioners and students in the natural healthcare field. Mentorship opportunities are few and far between and the first few years of starting a practice and learning how to be a doctor outside of the classroom are an incredibly intense and challenging experience. There are few employment opportunities for naturopaths, which means most of us hang our own shingle and must learn how to be business people immediately after graduating. Only 1/3 of naturopaths are practicing 3 years after graduating, and I’m devoted to providing a helping hand to those needing guidance, support, and maybe a little cheerleading.
