Dr. Jon Moma received his doctoral degree from Bastyr University where he studied Naturopathic Medicine. As a licensed naturopathic physician, he believes strongly in integrating modern medical science with natural healing methods. His approach to health involves using both conventional and science based alternative approaches to treating disease. He encourages his
patients to become advocates for their health by emphasizing patient education whenever possible. Dr. Moma began his interest in medicine as a student at Gonzaga University. Excelling in undergraduate science courses and pursing volunteer and preceptorships in the healthcare field.
In 2005, upon obtaining his Bachelor of Arts degree from Gonzaga, and in the hope of experiencing new avenues of healthcare, Dr. Moma applied to the Peace Corps Global Health Program and was accepted in 2006. He spent the next two years in rural parts of Nicaragua educating adults and teenagers on all aspects of health, including nutrition, child and maternal health, HIV and AIDS, breast feeding, birth control methods, cardiovascular health, and diabetes. During that time, he was struck by how important diet and lifestyle is to one's health and how little changes over time can lead to big reductions in risk and great increases in quality of life. He was drawn to learning more about the complexities of using diet and nutrition to heal illness and prevent chronic disease. It was his experience living and working in Nicaragua that most propelled him to enter into Naturopathic Medicine and devote his career to mastering the intricacies of Integrative Medicine.
When not at the clinic, Dr. Moma enjoys many outdoor pursuits in the mountains around Seattle, including mountain biking, skiing, and hiking. His interests include traveling, languages, music, culinary arts, and animals.
