Dr. Miller is the founder and medical director of Nutima Integrative Medicine, an interdisciplinary, integrative medical clinic in Seattle, Washington, where she consults on patient’s cases from around the globe.  Dr. Miller specializes in gastroenterology, epigenetics, and neurological health, but her primary focus for all of her patients is healing their digestive tracts, as she believes that one cannot be free from disease if their digestion is not working properly.

Andrea McBeth, ND

Dr. McBeth’s background includes a degree in biochemistry and research pursuits in various areas of molecular and cellular biology.  After years working in cancer research, she left academia and the hospital to be a full-time patient advocate for a family member with cancer.  That experience and her own journey of chronic pain and autoimmune disease led her to pursue healthcare and advocacy using the tools of naturopathic medicine.  As a licensed ND in Oregon and Washington, her clinical focus is functional gastrointestinal and autoimmune issues.  In conjunction with the functional medicine practice, she runs Flora’s stool bank, which provides Fecal Microbiota Transplant for the treatment of resistant Clostridium difficile infection, as well as heads the investigational science applications for other microbiome therapies. 

She believes that just as climate change is ravishing the Earth’s biodiversity, so too, our microbiomes are being decimated by Western lifestyles.  Standard American diets, overuse of pharmaceutical medications, beauty products, and the loss of everyday interactions with natural soil and plant microbes are all contributing to this loss.  She believes that our approach to saving our health and planet will need to be as multifaceted as the ways in which we are destroying it, and naturopathic medicine is at the heart of the solution.  

Sherry Su, ND

Dr. Sherry Su is a licensed naturopathic doctor practicing at Naturopathic Family Health in San Jose, CA.  She earned her doctorate in naturopathic medicine from Bastyr in 2016.  Dr. Su devotes herself to treating gastrointestinal illness in her private practice.  Her decision to focus her practice on GI disorders came from her own journey of battling chronic GI symptoms, and she strives to serve and help others who share the same journey.  Dr. Su is the main lead for the advanced development committee.  She helps the organization develop a corporate partnership program and recruit sponsors.  

When not working, she enjoys rock climbing and traveling around the world.
