Courtney Addabbo, ND, is a naturopathic doctor practicing at Peak Performance & Prevention (affectionately known as P3), a wellness clinic located in Puyallup, Washington.
While working on a degree in chemistry, Dr. Courtney worked for seven years in pediatric oncology. She pursued an engineering degree, but a professor she admired pulled her aside and encouraged her to consider medical school. Until that point, her primary exposure to medicine was the brutal and extensive suffering that is part of conventional oncology. What if she could influence and change the course of cancer and chronic illness? From here, her passion for a non-conventional approach to medicine was born. After Courtney returned to her home state, she obtained her Bachelor of Science in chemistry with a minor in biology from the University of Minnesota.
She and her husband relocated to the Pacific Northwest to pursue her medical degree from Bastyr University in Seattle. While completing her rotations in medical school, she discovered she had a special interest in women’s health and received extended training in fertility, gynecology, and biological hormone replacement therapy.
Courtney’s approach to medicine is grounded in the fundamental understanding that human health is met by achieving mental, emotional, and physical health. Nothing acts in isolation. She is passionate in her pursuit of unveiling the root cause of disease and empowering patients through education and mentorship to achieve health and balance.
In her time away from work, Courtney likes to experiment in the kitchen with recipes, trying to find new and fun ways to enjoy food that is healthy and delicious. Being from Minnesota, she enjoys boating, kayaking, and water skiing. Music is a big part of her upbringing, and she loves to play Chopin on the piano.
