Bio & Education  


Dr. Carmen Luterbach is a Naturopathic Doctor who believes in achieving balance within the body as the goal of medicine. She recognizes that when we experience symptoms, it's our body, mind, and spirit seeking a return to balance. Her approach is focused on understanding the events, stressors, and triggers that have created the imbalance and treating the causative factors to establish balance again.

Dr. Luterbach specializes in thyroid health, recognizing the impact of hormonal shifts like post-partum and menopause on the thyroid gland. She emphasizes the importance of specific nutrients, as well as genetic, autoimmune, and toxic factors in thyroid health.

Environmental medicine is another area of interest for Dr. Luterbach. She explores the impact of the environment on our health, such as sensitivities to musty rooms, chemical odors, pollen, animal dander, and dust.

Autoimmunity is another area that Dr. Luterbach focuses on. She aims to understand why the immune system starts attacking the body and addresses factors such as toxins, heavy metals, infections, food sensitivities, leaky gut, and allergens to restore balance.

Outside of the clinic, Dr. Luterbach enjoys camping with her family, traveling to new places, hiking, spending time in nature, and engaging in self-discovery and learning.

Some lesser-known facts about Dr. Luterbach include her adventurous spirit, such as solo skydiving at 19 years old and traveling through Nepal, India, and Taiwan in her early twenties. She also volunteered with Naturopathic Doctor's International in Nicaragua during her first year of naturopathic school. Additionally, she cherishes the experience of having had both of her daughters through home births.

Dr. Luterbach loves working with Island Optimal because of the enthusiasm, team spirit, and authenticity that she finds within the clinic. She appreciates the intention of loving-kindness in communication and connection among the team.
