Meet Mandy Gulla

Meet Mandy Gulla

ND, LMT, Founder and Medical Director

Dr. Gulla is holistic physician guided by the philosophy that all human beings have an innate potential for healing and fulfillment. Her interest in whole person healing began with the mind-and-body connection and transformative power found in art. As an undergraduate, she focused on visual, performance and healing arts, expanding her knowledge of literature, painting, developmental movement patterning, dance and yoga at The Evergreen State College.

Moved to study medicine to improve quality and compassion and to deepen patient understanding and empowerment, Dr. Gulla earned a doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine, a certificate in Midwifery, and a certificate in Massage Therapy at Bastyr University. Completing a CNME accredited residency at the Center for Natural and Integrative Medicine in Orlando, FL under the direct solo mentorship of Dr. Kirti Kalidas MD, ND, they focused on Integrative Internal Medicine and Infectious Disease, collaborating with over 20 varied allied health providers.

In her over a decade of clinical practice, she has focused on gently unraveling and treating complex, multi-system dysfunction. Dr. Gulla teaches and consults with Physicians and Medical Students in her private practice and as Adjunct Faculty at Bastyr University , where she teaches Advanced IV Therapy.  She feels a strong connection to the community and the earth and is grateful to serve the San Juan Islands.


Fun fact: Dr. Gulla is an INFJ with an Aquarius Sun, a Cancer Moon, and an Aries rising.

“I appreciate the loving caring service which Dr. Gulla has shown me over many years. She has saved me from losing all my hair three times now. I was looking at the prospect of needing a wig.

How humbling it feels to see handfuls of hair coming out in the shower and all over the house. As Dr. Gulla balanced my thyroid three different times, the loss finally stopped. 

After I fell and broke my arm in May 2023, my arm turned black . I thought it was just bruising. Dr. Gulla ordered a blood test and found out that I was anemic. I started iron supplementation and after about a month, my hair stopped falling out. 

The first time that I went to a regular physician and had a blood test he said,  'Your thyroid is fine. You will lose all of your hair.' 

I am so grateful for alternative options 
and for the skills Dr. Gulla has to offer our little community,

Thank you.”
