Dr. Rebekah OldenKamp

Dr. Rebekah OldenKamp, ND


I enjoy working with patients who feel they haven’t been given much hope from the traditional medical community and working with them to help improve their quality of life.

I particularly enjoy the detective work behind autoimmune and chronic disease. These patients are often not given much hope or options from the traditional medical community, and frequently there are options. Diet and lifestyle are my main treatments, these require a significant amount of education which is a priority for me.

Dr. Thapa

Dr. Nitin Thapa, ND


My focus is on all aspects of pediatric care, from birth to young adult as well as care for acute and chronic conditions in adults.

I was born and raised in Nepal. Growing up, I witnessed people suffering because of lack of access to health care. This became the motivating factor for me to become a Doctor. I went to study medicine in Russia and graduated from the Tver State Medical Academy- one of Europe’s oldest and prestigious medical academies. With an MD degree in General Medicine, I went back to Nepal and joined Bir Hospital, a tertiary level hospital in Kathmandu and worked tirelessly, helping sick and enriching my clinical and surgical skills. I treated an array of systemic, infectious, psychological and surgical ailments.

I always had a keen interest in pediatrics and soon, I joined Kanti Children’s Hospital – a tertiary level pediatric hospital in Kathmandu, where I worked in Pediatric Internal Medicine as well as in specialty clinics like ER, Pediatric Surgery, NICU and PICU. I managed healthy kids as well as kids with severe, life threatening infectious and non-infectious diseases. Besides practicing medicine in hospitals and clinics, I was also actively involved in promoting community health awareness programs and running free health camps for poor and vulnerable population of the society.

After moving to USA, while pursuing an advanced medical career here in the USA, I worked as a Medical Assistant at Allegro Pediatrics in Redmond and learned a lot about developmental disorders, childhood obesity and the scope of preventative medicine in America.

I soon realized that our healthcare system lacks integrative approach by combining natural and modern medicine together. This became a motivating factor and I enrolled in Bastyr University and completed my training as a Naturopathic Physician in 2017. After one year in practice in family medicine, I joined Bastyr University affiliated, pediatric focused residency program to gain expertise in Naturopathic Pediatric medicine. At Bastyr University and through my residency training, I learned holistic medicine, implementation of botanical medicine, homeopathic medicine, clinical nutrition, counseling and physical medicine. At the same time refreshed and updated my conventional medical knowledge and skills.

My ND education included preceptorship with ND Family Practitioners, ND Pediatricians as well as MD Family practitioner.

My focus is on all aspects of pediatric care, from birth to young adult as well as care for acute and chronic conditions in adults. I will be working closely with you and your child with a more natural, and holistic approach to promote physical, cognitional and emotional health. I will also prescribe and suggest a more conventional approach when needed.

Having expertise in both allopathic and naturopathic medicine, I believe that integrating the best of both brings better results.
