Get to know Functional Medicine Specialist, Daniel L. Rasmussen, who serves patients in Seattle, Washington.
Daniel Rasmussen is a National Board Certified Diplomate of Oriental Medicine. He is licensed to practice East Asian Medicine in the state of Washington, as well as certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). “My first exposure to Eastern medicine occurred when I was growing up and witnessed my mom go through years of symptom-focused medications that left her in a state of untreatable mental fog, suicidal depression and extreme fatigue. She met an Doctor of Asian Medicine and Acupuncturist who determined that her liver was congested, her digestive system was inflammed and her immune system was weak. After four short months of treatment with emotional work, detox, acupuncture, nutrition and Chinese herbs, she was able to eliminate all her medications. Long story short, I got my mom back and to this day, she is one of the most positive, inspirational people in my life! Her process had a huge impact on me and as a result, I fell in love with this amazing medicine!” said Daniel.
