SILVANA SAIEH-YIDI, ND
Meet the doctor.
Dr. Silvana is a primary care naturopathic physician with a special interest in women's health, sexual health and physical medicine.
Her journey to become a doctor began when she was working in pharmaceutical research and discovery. Through this work, she realized that her passion was in working with individual patients on their healing process, not working in the lab separated from those she wanted to help the most.
As she explored the field of healthcare, Dr. Silvana knew she was looking for an approach where the individual was valued and empowered through the process.
She also recognized the importance of treating the root cause of illness, not just suppressing the symptoms. For these reasons, she chose naturopathic medicine.
Dr. Silvana obtained her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine at Bastyr University in Seattle, WA and is a licensed primary care naturopathic physician in the state of Washington. She has also completed a post-graduate certificate in Sexual Health Counseling at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI.
Prior to entering the field of naturopathic medicine, Dr. Silvana studied Biology at Columbia University in New York City.
In addition to her naturopathic medicine education, she has pursued specialized training in craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation and sexual health medicine and counseling. Dr. Silvana is also a skilled energy healer, having 10 years of experience as a reiki practitioner.
