We are committed to sustainable choices in every aspect of our practice. We use only recycled paper, organic -or no- fertilizers in our landscaping, we clean without harsh chemicals and we remodel with the greenest products and materials available. Federal Way Naturopathy is proud to have installed one of the first rain gardens in Federal Way. Rain gardens are an effective means of managing storm water runoff from roof tops and parking lots, decreasing overflow in sewers, flooding risk and filtering out oil and chemicals from drain water before harmful substances reach our wetlands and marine waters. If there are ways we can be better stewards of our resources we will use them.

Travis BoyleTravis Boyle

Dr. Boyle is among a small community of naturopathic physicians who specialize in the practice of homeopathy. Dr. Boyle works to address the underlying cause of illness, while stimulating the body’s own ability to heal. This therapeutic framework allows for the investigation of how each of us are inherently different from one another, and how our response to stressors shapes the way we experience disease. Homeopathy is not condition specific, but rather accounts for the whole person, and can be effective in addressing a variety of health conditions. Dr. Boyle uses homeopathy to address a number of health conditions and is especially interested in chronic illness.

Dr. Boyle received his Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University. Dr. Boyle’s undergraduate studies include a Bachelors Degree in Clinical Laboratory Sciences with an emphasis in Biomedical Science, a minor in Chemistry, and advanced study in Molecular Diagnostics and Complementary Medicine from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Dr. Boyle views the human body as a dynamic entity; it is ever changing, constantly evolving, and continually adapting. His approach to treatment incorporates the mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional aspects of the individual.

He strives to understand the important role your individuality plays in your health and wellbeing, as well as in your response to illness.
