Peter Knight, ND

HNFM Instructor

Dr. Knight earned his BS and ND degrees at Bastyr University and has practiced naturopathic medicine for more than 15 years in Portland, Maine, specializing in holistic nutritional and botanical approaches to chronic conditions. He originally came to his profession through his love for cooking and his belief in the healing properties of food. Dr. Knight works with patients to support the body’s innate healing abilities for conditions as wide ranging as irritable bowel syndrome, arthritis, allergies and ADHD. His approach combines both food recommendations and nutritional supplementation to treat the whole person.

When not seeing patients or teaching in the UWS HNFM program, Dr. Knight is most likely to be found tending to his expansive vegetable garden, working in his beehives or concocting something delicious in the kitchen.
