Dr. Rosalie De Lombaert (dee•lom•bear) is a trilingual Naturopathic physician and Ayurvedic practitioner. She holds a doctoral degree in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University’s four-year medical program as well as a Master’s degree in Ayurvedic Medicine. She completed a naturopathic residency in primary care and is currently licensed in the state of Washington.
Dr. Rosalie completed an Ayurvedic internship in Himachal Pradesh, India, while also pursuing additional training in Vedic astrology (Jyotish), Vastu, panchakarma treatments, and yoga therapy. With her interest in making traditional medical knowledge widely available, Dr. Rosalie has taught various classes on Ayurvedic herbalism and nutrition, western herbalism, and has also led several community workshops on fermentation and herbal medicine-making.
Dr. Rosalie’s interest in complementary and alternative medicine began at a young age, growing up with Belgian parents who used both traditional European herbalism and homeopathy in the household. Later on as a college athlete, she became interested in nutrition, yoga, and lacto-fermentation as a means of preventing illness and improving fitness— all of which still heavily inform her Naturopathic and Ayurvedic practice today.
Her personal hobbies include gardening and wildcrafting, home-brewing a variety of ferments, sewing items from recycled fabrics, and bike-touring. She grew up on the New England shoreline and currently lives in a tiny house on the Olympic Peninsula with her partner.
