Dr. Jana Hagen brings more than a decade of knowledge and experience in Naturopathic Medicine and Clinical Laboratory Medicine to her family medicine practice. Her journey into healthcare began in 1996 at the University of Washington School of Medicine’s Laboratory Medicine department where she received her initial baccalaureate training in Medical Technology.
Dr. Hagen graduated in 2007 from Bastyr University with a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine. She is also Adjunct Faculty at Bastyr University, and has taught courses on Clinical Laboratory Medicine, Addictions & Disorders and Nutrition & Mental Health to medical and graduate students.
Dr. Hagen’s philosophy regarding health, healing and the practice of naturopathic medicine is founded in two fundamental principles of connection and prevention:
Everything within the body specific and the world are interconnected. Any actions within one body system are communicated in various ways to the other systems, both internal and external.
Prevention is the purest method of primary healthcare. Prevention is a proactive, rather than reactive process, in which Dr. Hagen and the patient work together to restore and maintain optimum function of the whole person.
When illness does occur, Dr. Hagen combines the modern technology of laboratory medicine with the time-tested modalities of botanical medicine, nutrition, orthomolecular medicine and homeopathy to discover the cause and provide effective treatment for conditions ranging from allergies and anxiety to sinusitis and warts, and everything in between. Rest, food, water, and movement are also integrated into every treatment plan as fundamentals of health.
Dr. Hagen’s practice is patient-centered; she takes the time to listen to what her patients have to say about their needs and goals. She believes that the best outcomes occur when the patient has a voice and a choice in their healthcare.
Dr. Hagen’s special interests in addition to general naturopathic family medicine include relapse prevention during recovery from addictions, weight loss and mental health. She is also a board member and consulting physician for the World Forgiveness Initiative, a non-profit organization committed to the global experience of the freedom, power and joy sourced in forgiveness.
