Approach to Care | Biography| What Patients Say

Dr. Rebecca Asmar graduated in 2003 from the National College of Natural Medicine and completed a private 2 ½ year residency in January 2008. In addition, Dr. Asmar has received special training in homeopathy, counseling, and several forms of moving meditation including Ashtanga Yoga. Now, as owner of Bambú Clinic since 2008, she maintains a private practice in general family medicine that focuses on reestablishing balance and function of all body systems. In 2010-2011, she served as the Executive Director of The Run: Moving Natural Medicine Forward, a non-profit campaign to promote public awareness of natural healing options. When not seeing patients, Dr. Asmar supervises new naturopathic doctors in their own private practices and teaches seminars in natural healing methods.

Dr. Asmar relies on the six principles of naturopathic medicine for guidance in case management. She believes that healing happens when patients discover and doctors treat the underlying cause of the presenting symptoms. Her protocols utilize the body’s innate ability to heal itself and, therefore, support the body’s curative mechanisms. Dr. Asmar has a special interest in supporting patients with hormonal imbalances, diabetes, autoimmune disease, and cancer. She also specializes in the treatment of children especially those with ADHD and autism.

Dr. Asmar believes that a strong doctor/patient relationship is crucial to overcoming chronic illness. She understands that true health exists on all levels, physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. She, therefore, dedicates herself sincerely to supporting her patients as they explore and optimize all aspects of their lives.
