Sunita Iyer, ND, LM

Dr. Iyer has been in clinical practice as a midwife and naturopathic physician since 2008, and a graduate-level educator for over 13 years at Bastyr University and the University of Washington Bothell. Teaching is her passion in the clinical, classroom, online, and patient care arenas, and is currently fully focused on her teaching and scholarship endeavors (and halfway through the first draft of her book!) as she steps back from full-time clinical care. Her background and primary professional interests have been women’s and pediatric health, specializing in pediatric and perinatal mental health. She was also the Founder of an integrative family medicine clinic – Eastside Natural Medicine, that serves as a teaching clinic and a site for an accredited primary care residency program.

Target Audience

For pediatric nurse practitioners, family nurse practitioners, physician assistants, clinical nurse specialists, nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists and other interested healthcare professionals.

Objectives for Learning Outcomes

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be better able to:

  1. Describe the top supplements or integrative therapeutics that are being used in pediatric primary care in naturopathic practice, the research or data that supports its use, and clinical efficacy.
  2. Introduce other supplements or therapeutics to address anxiety, digestive issues, and other concerns that can also be of utility by conventional providers, if not to prescribe, to understand how they are being utilized by providers and by patients that may come into their clinical settings.
  3. Develop ways to work adjunctively with their patients and navigate some of those professional discrepancies that may arise with alternative therapeutics.
