About Dr. Kane

The Doctor is In…

Dr. Emily Kane

Emily A. Kane was raised in North Africa.  Her parents were with the United States Foreign Service.  She came to America at age 16, graduated from Harvard University in 1978, and lived in Paris, Washington DC and New York City before coming to Seattle to begin naturopathic medical training.  Her first career was in contemporary performing arts as a promoter, manager, designer and performer.

A graduate of Bastyr University in Seattle (class of 1992), she completed both the Naturopathic and Acupuncture/Oriental Medicine programs.  Her preceptor work (similar to residencies) took place in Seattle, West Virginia and China, with emphasis on gynecology, counseling, herbal medicine and naturopathic manipulation (body work).  She worked as a Licensed Massage Therapist in Seattle during her medical training for 7 years.

Dr. Kane maintains an active clinical practice and sees patients of all ages.

She writes a column for Better Nutrition magazine called Ask the Naturopath, and she also recently published a concise and informative book on achieving and maintaining excellent health entitled Managing Menopause Naturally, available through this website or at Amazon.com.  She is the former senior editor of the Journal of Naturopathic Medicine (1989-96), the scientific, peer-reviewed journal of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians.  She regularly leads retreats and therapeutic fasts, and teaches health classes through her local community college. (Occasionally, she holds retreats further afield!)

She continues to enjoy the arts, especially music and theatre.  In 2001 she completed a Danskin triathlon as part of her dedication to “physical culture,” and has participated in the relay race called the Klondike (from Skagway, Alaska to Whitehorse, Yukon) each year since 2001.  She is a registered yoga teacher (RYT) and teaches introductory Ashtanga classes in Juneau, where she lives with her husband and daughter.  During the deep winter months she can be found on Big Island, Hawaii, in a little solar-powered home with a backyard organic orchard of exotic fruits.
