Dr. Marnie Frisch, ND is the founder of Whole Health Naturopathy. She is a graduate of Bastyr University, a 5-year accredited Naturopathic Medical institution, and the nation’s leader in scientific-based natural medical schools. She has worked with some of the top naturopaths in the Seattle area, and does much of her continuing education at the Children’s Hospital in Seatttle.
In addition to Naturopathic studies, Dr. Frisch completed 3 years of homeopathic training with Dr. Paul Herscu and Dr. Amy Rothenberg of the New England School of Homeopathy.
Her undergraduate training was at the University of Minnesota where she graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology. There, she spent a year studying communication between medical doctors and patients and wrote, “The Practice of Family Medicine from a Cultural Perspective: A Look at Communication between Health Care Providers and Patient Populations.”
Between her undergraduate and graduate work she worked in patient care for women’s health clinics, community health clinics for homeless youth, and a private urology practice. She also spent 6 years as a bakery owner of a whole-grain, organic bakery in Seattle. While in transition from Naturopathic school to her practice, Dr. Frisch worked with Homeopathic teachers and students throughout North America with Whole Health Now.
Dr. Frisch moved to Olympia in the Summer of 2008, after living in the Seattle area for 15 years. Before opening her practice in Olympia, she practiced in Edmonds, WA. She lives in Northeast Olympia with her husband and two young children.

[Photo Pending!] Dr. Laura Galati, ND is a naturopathic physician and midwife practicing in Medford, OR, and the surrounding areas. She graduated from the National University of Natural Medicine with a doctorate degree in naturopathic medicine, a certificate in natural childbirth, and a master’s degree in integrative medicine. She is a trained doula, and a member of the Oregon Association of Naturopathic Physicians (OANP) and the Midwives Alliance of North America (MANA).
Dr. Laura grew up in Phoenix, AZ, and was instilled in the benefits of natural alternatives from an early age. Her mother taught to make her own soaps, shampoos, and clothes using eco- and body-friendly ingredients. Her path in life has taken her from school in Arizona, where she studied aquatic biology, to the Peace Corp and the Philippines, where she found her passion for family planning and childbirth, to Hawaii and Alaska as a fisheries biologist (go ahead, ask her about fish). After all this, and a couple of years working on various farms around the country, she decided to settle down to help women give birth in a natural and peaceful setting.
Dr. Laura’s goals include helping families experience the joy of out-of-hospital births, prescribing natural, holistic cures to families in need, and discussing family planning with young parents-to-be. She lives in the Medford area, and enjoys the beautiful outdoors, the agricultural bounties of the fertile valleys of Southern Oregon, and, most importantly, the sun.
