Dr. Amy Williamson founded Fairbanks Family Wellness nearly 11 years ago and treats the whole family, from infants to elders for most health concerns, laboratory examinations, and physical exams. Dr. Williamson also specializes in the naturopathic diagnosis of hormone imbalance and treatment of allergies, including asthma, eczema, dermatitis, sinusitis, seasonal allergies, chemical sensitivity, and digestive disorders. Dr. Williamson has also received specialized training in the Arvigo Technique of Mayan Abdominal Therapy, which is a method of gentle, noninvasive uterine adjustment that can assist women with menstrual and fertility concerns.
Dr. Amy Williamson started her career as a healer 30 years ago as an RN. She worked in diverse settings ranging from cardiac intensive care to nursing home care. 22 years ago she took a life-changing position as an RN in a naturopathic medical clinic here in Fairbanks. She quickly realized that patients in a natural medicine setting were improving in health and vitality instead of deteriorating and receiving more and more medications and surgeries. Inspired by the healing she witnessed, she attended Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, which is a four year, full-time accredited medical school located in Tempe, Arizona.

From a young age, she wanted to become a doctor, but always sought out more natural means of caring for herself, so Naturopathy was a perfect fit! Health is a priority for Dr. McLaughlin and her family, and she enjoys staying active by riding bikes, practicing yoga, kayaking, camping, skiing, hiking, and more. She loves helping people develop healthier bodies and minds through nutrition and movement, with support from herbs, supplements, homeopathy as needed, and frequency medicine with the NES Health Total WellNES System, which includes a full-body scan. Finally, Dr. McLaughlin also has a passion for teaching, and in addition to classes at OLLI, and free classes at Fairbanks Family Wellness, she will be offering masterclass sessions periodically at the clinic.

At Fairbanks Family Wellness, the purpose of Naturopathic Medicine is to take your health further than symptom management. Naturopathic doctors go through a rigorous 4 years of graduate medical education, take board exams, and are licensed care providers in the state of Alaska. Most of today’s modern pharmaceutical drugs are designed to control symptoms: antihypertensives for high blood pressure, statins for high cholesterol, etc. These medications are valuable, can save lives, and serve an important purpose in today’s healthcare arena. However, they stop short of providing true health because, ultimately, they do not address the underlying problem. Instead of treating our patients with drugs and surgery, we are trained to look for the cause of an illness or imbalance and help the body right itself through nutrition and lifestyle changes, laboratory testing, physical examination, homeopathy, herbal medicine, vitamins and minerals, allergy desensitization, and bodywork.
