About Dr. LaChute

Integral Natural Medicine in Bellevue, WA is the naturopathic medical practice of Dr. Shaun "Skye" LaChute. Dr. Skye views the mind, body and spirit as an integrated whole and believes the body and mind have an inherent nature to be in balance and healthy. Often, these become unsynchronized due to chronic stress or other exposures leading to disease. Dr. Skye aims to take a "wholistic" view of the individual person and look for the imbalance, whether physical or mental in origin. Dr. Skye integrates the best of western, natural, and complementary medicine to heal illness on many levels. Diseases are diagnosed with modern medical science and laboratory studies and managed using a variety of modalities including lifestyle counseling, nutrition, natural substances, botanical remedies, homeopathics, physical medicine, mind body medicine and biofeedback along with pharmaceuticals when appropriate. All methods employed are in service of the body’s innate wisdom to heal, also known as the Vis Medicatrix Naturae, a fundamental principle in naturopathic medicine. The focus is treating the "whole" person and the underlying dis-ease, not just the disease or symptoms.

Dr. Skye received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Tulane University in New Orleans and graduated from Bastyr University in Kenmore, Washington with a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine. She completed her clinical training at Bastyr Center for Natural Health with externships in complementary cancer and survivorship care, women's health, and primary care with emphasis in autoimmune conditions and gastrointestinal health. She also completed additional training in mind-body medicine and biofeedback and received advanced training in homeopathy from the New England School of Homeopathy.

Dr. Skye is a board certified naturopathic physician in the state of Washington. She is a member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians and the Washington Association of Naturopathic Physicians. She also serves as a part-time Adjunct Faculty member at Bastyr University in the School of Naturopathic Medicine and Department of Counseling and Health Psychology.

Personal Statement

A huge shift in my well-being occurred during my early 20s, when I was diagnosed with severe asthma and allergies after a relatively healthy childhood. I then received a pre-cancerous diagnosis followed shortly by an autoimmune disease, all amidst a series of stressful life events.  This launched me on a nearly 20 year search and study of the science of mind - through Eastern philosophy, Buddhist and Western psychology - in an attempt to understand how disassociation from one's thoughts, emotions and spirituality could lead to dis-ease. I also wanted to understand how the body and health become broken - not only how lifestyle choices, environmental factors and genetics affect health, but especially how maladaption to everyday life stress or internalized psychological stress affects the physical body. So I gave up my career as a web designer and educational technology specialist to pursue a degree in naturopathic medicine. My goal was to acquire a deeper understanding of physical disease and natural methods of healing of both body, mind and spirit. 

I've struggled personally with autoimmune thyroid and weight issues, gastrointestinal and blood pressure problems, asthma and numerous allergies, and more recently, neuroendocrine cancer, which came with learning how to navigate the cancer care system. I have found a unique understanding, the firsthand experience of walking in a patient's shoes. I understand the struggles that my patients are up against. I know how hard it is to give up foods that you love, to dream of being a perfect size 6, to walk away from stress as a lifestyle, to change orientation from striving for perfection to thriving in the present. I've not only witnessed transformation in health and wellbeing in my patients, I've experienced it for myself. 

As a naturopathic physician, I enjoy working with patients from all walks of life who have a variety of chronic ailments. I work with people on hypertension, pre-diabetes, thyroid problems, autoimmune conditions, gastrointestinal disturbances, headaches, insomnia, anxiety and depression, hormonal imbalances, chronic muscle tension and pain.  I also work with patients who want to maximize their vitality in order to age gracefully. I enjoy collaborating with patients to help them achieve their fullest health potential, whether their disease is curable or not. I believe healing is just as much a state of mind, as a state of being - a continual journey toward thriving.

As a consummate learner, I enjoy learning from patients, about different cultures and traditions, and from nature. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family, walking in nature, bicycling, yoga and meditation, knitting, reading, gardening, cooking and wine tasting.

    Investing in Wellness

    So many of us are willing to pay out-of-pocket for beauty products, cosmetic enhancements, expensive accessories. But when it comes to our health and wellbeing, we expect someone else to foot the bill. Stress and poor nutrition take a major toll on health and beauty and cannot be overridden by external enhancements and exercise. Only by investing in your inner health and a balanced wellbeing can you achieve true beauty and vibrancy.

    Investing in Yourself

    Increasingly, insurers are offering plans with larger deductibles that shift costs onto the patient when illness strikes. This results in larger out of pocket expense for patients who ultimately can only use their policies for catastrophic event coverage.  Dr. LaChute believes in a proactive, accessible wellness model for patients.
