Nathalie Paravicini, N.D.
I establish strong relationships with my patients and their family. Together we develop workable plans to meet your health objectives. My purpose then becomes to support you in your efforts, 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 are 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 a wonderful community of 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 a high-volume integrative clinic 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.
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. Nathalie Paravicini is great. She’s been my primary Dr for over 2 years now. The check ups are thorough and I found her insights into my bloodwork very helpful. On occasions I see her for aches and pains and have always been pleased with the results. C Borg - May 27, 2019

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!
