David Lerner, LAC
David Lerner combines acupuncture with herbal medicine & functional nutrition. David has been a Licensed Acupuncturist in Washington since 1994, and is nationally board certified (NCCAOM) in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. He graduated from the Northwest Institute of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NIAOM) with a Masters in Acupuncture in '94, and a Masters in Traditional Chinese Medicine in '00. In '97 David completed post-graduate training at the Beijing Cancer Institute and the Chengdu university of TCM where he trained with doctors specializing in oncology, gynecology, gastroenterology and dermatology. In '09 David completed advanced training in the ETMS integrative oncology system with renowned Nutritionist and Master Herbalist, Donnie Yance, and he continues ongoing study and regular consultation with him via a monthly oncology roundtable case review group. In '10, David received his Diploma in Comprehensive Nutrition from Huntington College of Health Sciences. David was a clinical and didactic faculty member at NIAOM from 2000-2003, and was the staff herbalist at the Kang Wen chronic illness clinic from 1999-2002. He has been a guest lecturer at the Jade Institute and Bastyr University. He co-authored a paper that was published in Clinical Perspectives in Gastroenterology titled "The Use of Chinese Herbal Medicine in Gastroenterology and Hepatology", as well as a paper on the benefits of vitamin D that appeared in the Puget Sound Oncology Nursing Journal. Utilizing acupuncture as his primary treatment modality, sometimes in combination with herbal and/or nutritional medicine, David treats a wide variety of disorders with a focus on acute/chronic pain conditions, sports injuries, auto injuries, fertility/hormone balance, supportive oncology care and mood disorders. He is a preferred provider for various insurance companies including Regence/Uniform, Premera, Lifewise, Aetna, and Group Health. In addition to David's acupuncture practice, he also works in conjunction with the physicians at Heart of Wellness, treating patients based on the foundations of functional medicine. From 2010-2015, David treated patients in conjunction with Evan Hirsch, MD at the Hirsch Center for integrative Medicine, where he received extensive experience in functional medicine protocols. Advanced lab analysis helps the care team to create a customized treatment plan, based on the patient's biochemical individuality, with an emphasis on searching for the root cause of illness. This style of treatment is particularly well suited for patients with chronic debilitating illnesses including pre-diabetes/diabetes as well as lipid, digestive, autoimmune/immune, hormonal, mood, and gynecological disorders. David is very comfortable interfacing with conventional medical practitioners, has a vast referral network, and a good sense of how to best utilize the various schools of integrative medicine. He is passionate about combining the innate wisdom of Oriental medicine with targeted protocols relying on evidence based data. David can be seen at the Heart of Wellness clinic in Tumwater, Wa. He offers free 15 minute initial consultations.
