Welcome to Pacific Northwest Integrative Medicine
PNWIM is the practice of Dr. Heather Buckle, a naturopathic doctor who provides specialized support for chronic gastroenterology issues (GI). Dr. Buckle has spent the past several years, serving thousands of patients with GI conditions including IBS, SIBO, fructose malabsorption, chronic reflux (GER), eosinophilic esophagitis (EOE), Crohn’s, colitis, and everything in between. During this time, she has gained extensive expertise in helping to manage these conditions and improve health and function for her patients.
In her practice, Dr. Buckle and her team come across many patients who have been battling chronic GI issues. Often, attempts have been made to manage symptoms without fully uncovering the cause. Dr. Buckle has helped guide many patients to the correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment to tackle even the most chronic concerns. She has extensive experience in managing symptoms such as abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, excessive gas and bloating, nausea, reflux, and difficulty swallowing. She can help you by combining the best natural healing agents (including supplements, dietary, and lifestyle recommendations), along with prescribing medications when necessary. This integrative approach not only manages symptoms and helps patients feel better, but it also gets at the root cause, with the goal of healing the GI tract, to improve long-term function.
Everyone is welcome here.
Together we can create a safe space for everyone to be treated with compassion and respect.
What our patients say
"Dr. Buckle is honestly one of my favorite doctors of all time. She has been my doctor for about 6-7 years now maybe longer. I have dealt with a lot of health issues. If you are reading this and looking for someone that is thorough, kind, and that will help you to her best knowledge figure out what's going on, I highly recommend seeing her! I don't know what I would do without such an amazing doctor like her."
"Dr. Buckle has changed our kid’s life. Before becoming Dr. Buckle’s patient, our kid suffered from pain and exhaustion due to conditions other doctors hadn’t even identified. But, since seeing Dr. Buckle for the last two years, and filling in missing diagnoses, our kid is healthier and happier than ever before."
"Dr. Buckle is amazing!! She is incredibly knowledgeable, has solved a number of problems for me with her recommendations as I deal with prostate cancer. She understands well the world of oncology and has multiple tools available that traditional doctors don’t have. I can’t speak highly enough about her and I wholeheartedly and without qualification or any reservations recommend her to anyone seeking a naturopathic doctor. She is the best!"
"Dr. Buckle has been instrumental in helping my daughter who has SIBO and low motility issues! She takes the time to listen and brings really great suggestions that are specifically tailored to her needs! I’d highly recommend her services!!!"
"My son was introduced to Dr. Buckle through his GI Doctor. She has been able to treat many of his issues with natural medicine since this seems to be all he can tolerate. I have been especially appreciative that she has listened to our concerns and been able to help with care for GI upset, pain, and seizures. Our family highly recommends Dr. Buckle."
"Dr Buckle is a wonderful medical professional! We were introduced to her because she partners with our son's GI doctor to provide a more wholistic approach to his autoimmune disease. "She is extremely thorough in her care of our son in addition to having a great rapport with him. She genuinely cares about him and his health. She is also very knowledgeable about how the body works and able to explain both disease and treatment in layman's terms."
