Seeing Dr Shanbaugh was my first experience with an Ayurvedic doctor and I thought it a bit hokey the way he took my pulse and made comments about my health, but it was completely accurate! I was vegan at the time and he respected I didn't want to eat ghee. His demeanor was polite and inquisitive without being judgmental. I asked if my vegan diet was to blame--no, he said my body wasn't producing enough cholesterol and you don't need to eat cholesterol to efficiently produce it.
After one month of following his protocols of pancha karma, my menses returned! I was so grateful and finally felt like a real woman again! I highly recommend Dr Shanbaugh! He takes his time with you to address the root causes of your concern; and how wonderful that his wife focuses on nutrition.
I crossed paths with Dr Shanbaugh at the Bastyr Herb Fair many years ago. He's such a pleasant, approachable person; I wish he still practiced in Seattle.
