Elysia J.B. Harrsch, ND, is a naturopathic physician at Ageless Beauty Rx in Vancouver, Washington. Originally from Hockinson, Washington, she is proud to serve the community where she grew up.
Dr. Harrsch earned her Bachelor of Science in biology from Washington State University - Vancouver. While there, she conducted research on the mechanisms of morphine drug tolerance and had her research presented at a conference in Scotland. Afterward, she went to Portland, Oregon, to complete a four-year medical degree program at the National University of Natural Medicine, the oldest naturopathic program in North America. During her time there, she developed a passion for nutrition, physical medicine, complementary cancer care, and preventative medicine.
After graduation, she then received hormone replacement therapy training through WorldLink Medical, which provides CME accredited education in hormone replacement therapy, replacement therapy, and innovative and preventive medicine. The functional medicine she learned during these conferences cultivated a desire to specialize her practice in thyroid disorders, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for women, and individualized medicine.
As a naturopathic physician, Dr. Harrsch is skilled in all aspects of family health and wellness, from pediatrics to geriatrics. She takes a natural approach to health and considers all aspects of a patient’s lifestyle when looking at treatment options.
