Dr. Parpia has spent the last decade treating patients with complex chronic illness from all over the US and the world. Her specialization is patients with tick-borne illness, environmentally acquired illness, mold/mycotoxin illness, autoimmunity, fibromyalgia and ME/CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome). External factors to the body, such as environmental toxic burden, pathogens, diet, and lifestyle affect the balance of internal factors – over or under expression of immunity, infection susceptibility, epigenetic expression, cellular biochemical function, mood and the microbiome.
Each of these aspects is different for each patient. Investigating to discover and remove the underlying cause(s) while providing symptom relief, she uses cutting-edge laboratory tests, and deep intuition applied to the full range of scientific data to unravel the mystery of each patient’s illness. Dr. Parpia then creates treatment plans that are highly personalized and healing. Modalities she uses include a synergistic blend of regenerative medicine, oral and intravenous micronutrient therapies, peptide therapies, botanical medicine, pharmaceuticals, injection therapies, functional nutrition, and lifestyle counseling.
Dr. Parpia is a sought out speaker at medical conferences and summits and she sees patients from all over the country at Gordon Medical in the San Francisco Bay Area. She previously worked in the clinics of Dr. Isaac Eliaz and Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt. She is on ISEAI’s Board (International Society for Environmentally Acquired Illness) and is a Scientific and Medical Advisor for Neurohacker Collective. She received her Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University and her Bachelor of Science from the University of British Columbia.

I love to solve human problems. But it is very much a mystery. It’s very much a puzzle, and each person is their own mystery. So, while I run the same labs for everybody, I’m going to find different pieces in patients, and one person will react very differently than another to treatment, or from the same exposure. So treatment always has to be designed for the individual person, and their unique needs. – Nafysa Parpia, ND
