Nathalie Paravicini, N.D.
I am genuinely interested in my patients' concerns, constrains and goals. Together we develop workable plans to meet your health objectives, taking into consideration your current circumstances. My purpose is to support you in your efforts, providing resources and adjusting plans as they evolve from immediate needs to continually improving your wellbeing.
In this way, you start reaching your own higher personal goals."
I grew-up in Caracas, where I earned a Baccalaureate in natural sciences through the French educational system (my parents were expatriates). I completed my education in the US and embarked on a successful international career.
Nevertheless, my passion for natural healing and community involvement led me back "home" to join the Community Doula Program in Houston, Texas. By implementing a natural approach to perinatal health we were able to reverse practically all cases of gestational diabetes and toxemia. The results were so impressive that the program was requested by several schools, public agencies and two HMOs, leading to a strategic merger.
During that time I had the privilege and fun of serving on a number of technical advisory committees and healthcare coalitions with wonderful community partners. I then decided to pursue further studies in medicine, graduating from the National University of Natural Medicine.
I provide care in two settings. The first one is high-volume integrative clinics dedicated to low-income and uninsured populations. Those clinics have a focus on diabetes and cardiovascular health management, acute infections, musculoskeletal complaints, allergies, women's health and some behavioral health.
At the NW Naturopathic Medicine Clinic we provide interdisciplinary care with a focus on behavioral health addressing biochemical disorders, allergy/intolerance reactions, chronic infections or exposures, cardiovascular risk assessment, hormone balancing and gastrointestinal health. Services include acupuncture, nutrition, IV therapy, LENS neurofeedback and the Buteyko Breathing Method, along with herbalism and homeopathy.
Call today for an introductory appointment; I am looking forward to supporting you and your family in your journey.

have been seeing Dr. Paravicini for several years. She spent two hours with me at our first visit really understanding my history, family history, mental health, etc. Since I have been seeing her I have been able to make positive changes in my health. I adore Dr. P and I drive from Happy Valley to see her and will continue. Jennifer H - Feb 28, 2020
I have been a patient of Dr. Paravicini's for a few years now and I could not recommend her enough. After seeing multiple specialists who struggled to find the cause of many debilitating symptoms I'd been experiencing, she was the first to make the connections and help uncover some of the root causes to what I'd been experiencing. I still see her on a regular basis and could not recommend her enough to anyone looking for a trustworthy, knowledgable doctor who has her patient's best interest at heart. She truly wants to see her patients healed & well and that is something I am very, very thankful for. Alex D.

Dr. Paravicini is the best Doctor I have ever had the pleasure of working wtih. I had been fighting some serious health battles for over 20 years and seen 30 different doctors over that course of time. She was able to pin down what was wrong on my first visit. I appreciate her level of expertise and professionalism. I also appreciate her level of empathy toward her patients. I recommend her to everyone and I know you will have a great experience. Leslee M.

Dr Paravicini by far is the best Doctor I’ve had in all my life of 62 years old. Dr Paravicini has treated me for diabetes type2, congestive heart failure, emotional and physical fatigue. In all areas I’ve received the greatest of care, education and insights to health plan that works . My only regret is that I didn’t see her sooner for I would have avoided most of my health issues. I couldn’t recommend Dr Paravicini more. I’m relieved that I have hope for a much healthier and healthy life due to her holistic approach to body and mind.

Dr. Paravicini is extremely thorough and thoughtful, and has a completely holistic approach to healing. In her assessment she takes into account the historical, emotional, genetic, physiological and lifestyle components that make us who we are and that affect our health, to create a completely personalized treatment plan. She narrowed down the lab tests necessary to diagnose ailments that have bothered me for years that other providers didn't detect. I feel so fortunate to have found her.

I started seeing Dr. Paravicini about a year ago. I have had great success for a digestion issue called SIBO. I have had a great treatment plan and my symptoms are gone. I liked the fact that the office worked with my insurance and my gastroenterologist. I also liked that I only take supplements and medication as needed for specific issues (no guess work). Dr. Paravicini takes the time needed to answer my questions and creates a comprehensive plan to follow for each visit. I highly recommend!
