Lisa Gallagher is a naturopathic physician licensed in the state of Washington. As a naturopathic doctor, she has been trained extensively in clinical nutrition, traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, herbal medicine, homeopathy, physical medicine (hydrotherapy, physical manipulation, massage) and other physiotherapies. She is a member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP) and is the vice president of the Ohio Chapter of the AANP.
Since Ohio does not yet license naturopathic doctors as physicians, Lisa works under the direction of the AIM physicians in guiding their patients to better understand and manage their dietary, lifestyle, supplement, and other treatment recommendations.
Dr. Gallagher received a degree of Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (N.D.) in 2008 from The Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and Health Sciences (SCNM) in Tempe, Arizona, which is one of five nationally accredited naturopathic medical schools in the United States. After SCNM she moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and worked at Cypress Integrative Medicine, a medical center focused on treating people diagnosed along the autism spectrum and who suffer from chronic disease processes. While in Baton Rouge she taught a nutrition class as one of Louisiana State University (LSU)’s leisure courses and lectured multiple times around the city.
Before SCNM, she earned a bachelor’s degree in biology at Allegheny College in 2002 and then worked for two years as a research technician in a microbiology and molecular genetics lab at the University of Pittsburgh.
