Lori Starn, ND
Welcome to Naturopathic Pathways, LLC, the office of Lori Starn, ND, located just east of Columbus in Gahanna. Naturopathic Pathways, LLC is pleased to announce its relocation inside Integrative Pediatrics of Ohio, LLC, the office of Dr. Allen T. Lewis, MD, FAANP, beginning in August 2010. Lori Starn, ND will continue to offer naturopathic and homeopathic care for adults and children in Central Ohio and surrounding areas at the new location.
Lori Starn was born and raised in Pataskala, Ohio. As a child, she spent a lot of time outdoors and learned to appreciate nature through her parents' backgrounds in biology and plants. After graduating high school, Lori attended Capital University and Ohio State, majoring in Biology and Psychology. While attending Ohio State, she became interested in natural health and began researching information about nutrition and naturopathic medicine. She changed her major to Nutrition and transferred to Bastyr University outside of Seattle, Washington to complete her Bachelor of Science Degree.
Upon completion of her B.S. in 2001, she immediately entered the naturopathic medicine program at Bastyr University. During her schooling, Lori completed a variety of clinic rotations and preceptorships including extra homeopathy rotations, as well as preceptorships with NDs specializing in homeopathy, pediatrics, and general family practice. In addition, she also had the opportunity to travel to Mexico for preceptorships at the Hoxsey Clinic in Tijuana and Clinica Esperanza in Merida. She completed her Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine degree (ND) in 2006 and became licensed as a Naturopathic Physician in Washington State that same year.
After graduating and completing her board exams, Lori Starn, ND returned to Central Ohio, where she completed a one year residency. She then opened Naturopathic Pathways, LLC, in Pataskala, where she has been in private practice since early 2008. In the summer of 2010, she moved her practice to Gahanna so she could work in the same building as Dr. Allen Lewis, MD, who shares her philosophies of health and wellness.
As a naturopathic physician, Lori's philosophy is to look at all aspects of a person's health (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual) and to treat the person, rather than the disease or condition, because each person is an individual. Her goal is to meet each person where they are, take the time to really listen to them, and help them achieve the best health possible. Naturopathic Pathways, LLC is a general family practice that sees patients of all ages with a wide variety of health concerns. Lori Starn, ND also specializes in homeopathy, gastrointestinal problems, and rheumatology.
