About Dr. Lynne Hinkle – Holistic Doctor
Dr. Hinkle graduated from NUNM, National University of Natural Medicine, in Portland, OR in 2004 with a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine and a Master of Science in Oriental Medicine. She practiced holistic family medicine, family wellness and acupuncture at George Washington University Center for Integrative Medicine in Washington, DC for 7 years, where she saw children through geriatrics. In an effort to make holistic medicine more accessible to all families, in 2013, Dr. Hinkle completed a Physician Assistant (MPA) masters degree from Samuel Merritt University, Oakland, CA.
Dr. Hinkle became interested in holistic medicine in the early 90’s. While working for a medical manufacturer, she remembers digging through medical libraries in Philadelphia, seeking the root causes for cancer, heart disease, and other seemingly “incurable” chronic ailments. In her reading, she was moved by a core tenet of naturopathic medicine: “Treat the cause of disease, not the symptoms,” and this has driven her practice ever since.
As an holistic doctor, Dr. Hinkle is trained in the full spectrum from general primary care to holistic family medicine. She treats all types of illnesses and can work with you on your health goals. She does however have some areas of particular interest. These include the treatment of immune system conditions such as allergies and autoimmune disorders; skin conditions such as eczema, hives and acne; thyroid disorders such as Hashimoto’s and general hypothyroidism; general digestive disorders; fatigue; and acute conditions, such as the common cold and influenza. Finally, Lynne has expertise working with foods and nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathy, lifestyle modifications, helping families “green” their homes and environments, and just instilling simple, healthy practices, all as a means to restore energy, health and vitality.
