Dr. Traci Taggart is a primary care Naturopathic Physician with specialties in chronic fatigue/fibromyalgia, Lyme disease, autoimmune conditions, menopause, fertility, thyroid conditions, and digestive issues. Many of her patients come to her with difficult to diagnose cases after having gone to a number of other doctors unable to find the cause of their illness.
Dr. Taggart listens to her patients and works closely with them to find the underlying cause in the case of illness, and best treatment approach. She enjoys helping patients of all ages, and routinely sees pediatric cases.
Dr. Taggart received her medical degree from Bastyr University. She was a Chemical Engineer in pharmaceutical manufacturing before going into medicine. Her curiosity and passion for integrative medicine has led to advanced training in Lyme disease management and treatment through ILADS, including an advanced preceptorship with Dr. Joseph Jemsek. She has also trained extensively in intravenous therapies, methylation and detoxification genetics, autoimmune disease management, IBS treatments, and homeopathy. She regularly attends seminars and webinars to stay current in these topics.
Treatments Dr. Taggart has found particularly effective in treating chronic conditions include oxygen and intravenous therapies, prolotherapy, detoxification protocols, custom blended herbal formulas, and pharmaceutical medications when necessary.
Growing up in the country in Colorado, Dr. Taggart spent much of her time outdoors. One of her grandfathers was a family medicine doctor, the other a pharmacist, and her father is an Equine Veterinarian. Having the exposure to nature and medicine, she grew up appreciating that every living creature has an innate ability to move toward health by using the medicines and nutrition that nature provides. She also recognizes that there is a place and usefulness for pharmaceuticals and surgical interventions.
The other loves of her life are spending time with her two kids and husband, frequenting local parks, going to yoga classes, hiking, cooking, growing organic vegetables, harvesting eggs from her backyard chickens, and reading.
