Meet Dr. Deanna ...
Dr. Deanna Hope Berman ND, LM
Naturopathic Doctor & Certified Midwife
Through my education at Bastyr University, a four-year, post-graduate, medical school just outside of Seattle, Washington, I received two years of basic medical science education, very much like medical doctors receive.
I then received in-depth training in clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, and a wide range of alternative therapies including naturopathic manipulation, massage, cranio-sacral therapy, Chinese medicine, homeopathy, and more.
Additionally, I received an extra year of coursework to become a midwife. As part of my overall training, I also spent 1500 hours in clinical rotations, and I assisted and managed over 100 births.
To obtain my Washington State license to practice naturopathic medicine, I had to take and pass over 20 state level board examinations. I then went on to take the examination through the American Midwifery Certification Board after which I received my certification as a Certified Midwife. More recently, I have transferred my naturopathic license to Vermont which means I am now a Vermont Licensed Naturopathic Doctor.
With my knowledge of herbal medicine and nutritional supplements in addition to my pharmacology training, I am uniquely qualified to understand drug-herb, and drug-nutrient interactions. I am also trained in lab analysis and can therefore look at all of your related medical records in order to build a picture of your overall health.
Moreover, as a certified midwife who focuses on natural health solutions, my understanding of women’s hormonal and endocrine issues is both extensive and unique. I believe the wide range of skills I possess added to my attention to details and my passion for staying current with research make me an exceptional practitioner.
