Chronic Illness is the leading causes of death and disability in the United States. Nearly half of all Americans suffer from at least one chronic disease which costs the nation 86% of our health care dollars. Our mission is to make Inside Health Institute the destination for diagnosis and financially feasible treatment of chronic disease. Funding will consist of outside sources like grants and individual donations, as well as fee for service funding. Our marketing plan will transition to an omni-channel strategy as we scale for growth, however our initial phase will largely target local SIBO/IBS support groups and surrounding clinics.

Vision

Transform healthcare expectations to a prevention based model promoting chronic wellness.

Mission

To make Inside Health Institute the destination for financially feasible prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of chronic illness.

Dr. Christine Bowen, ND, CGP

Chief Medical Officer

Christine has been practicing in Bothell, Washington since 2007. She is a Northwest native and a 2005 graduate of Bastyr University in Kenmore, Washington. Christine specializes in restoring digestive function through nutrition and other Naturopathic modalities. She has had the pleasure of teaching patients and practitioners about the Specific Carbohydrate Diet for the past 7 years. She believes that nutrition should be a first line therapy whenever possible and that supplements, medications and digestive/allergy testing should be considered only after nutrition has been properly addressed. Christine spearheaded the launch of Inside Health Institute after many years of feeling like patients would be better served by having more holistic treatment options and support under one roof. She has had great success helping patients who may have difficult or complicated conditions and is excited to share her clinical experience with all who come to Inside Health Institute.
