Diana Quinn inlak'ech, ND
Dr. Diana Quinn Inlak'ech (she/her/hers) is a Board-certified Naturopathic Doctor specializing in endocrinology, integrative mental health, and mind/body medicine. She is a graduate of the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) in Portland, Oregon and has been in practice since 2006.
The nature of her work is holistic and vitalistic, rooted in the healing power of nature. Diana’s foundational training is in evidence-based complementary and alternative medicine. She has fused this with mind/body medicine for a science-meets-spirituality approach. She passionately believes in the capacity of body/mind/spirit to heal, and sees her role as that of facilitator to support the self-healing of her clients.
In her consultative practice, Diana compassionately holds a space of empowerment through information, resources, and natural medicine modalities. Diana co-creates a therapeutic plan with clients which may include a variety of modalities: food as medicine, herbal allies and botanical medicine, shamanic healing and the use of ceremony and ritual, homeopathy and flower essences, somatic bodywork, mind/body techniques, and nature-based therapy.
Her practice is trauma-informed with a healing justice lens, grounded in intersectional feminism. She seeks to provide safe space to those who have felt alienated within conventional medicine spaces including the LGBTQIA+ community, people of color, trauma survivors, differently abled folks, and people of size (as a HAES advocate).
Dr. Quinn currently sees patients at interdisciplinary clinics in Ann Arbor, Integrative Healthcare Providers and Integrative Empowerment. Her clinical experience includes four years at the Integrative Medicine department at Beaumont Hospital where she focused on integrative oncology, women’s health and cardio-metabolic disease. She has also previously provided services at Michigan Associates of Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine, and Shalva Psychiatry.
In 2013 she trained with Julia Ross (The Mood Cure, The Diet Cure) in the use of amino acid and neuronutrient therapy for integrative mental health, an effective and non-invasive approach to improving mood, energy and sleep. Since 2016, Diana has been studying as a shamanic practitioner with The Power Path, with a root in the practices of the Mexican Huichol tradition as well as the Shipibo of the Peruvian Amazon. More information about shamanism and shamanic healing can be found here.
Committed to increasing access to naturopathic medicine, Dr. Quinn served as President of the Michigan Association of Naturopathic Physicians (MANP) from 2007 to 2011, and as Legislative Chair until 2012. She was a founding member of the Ann Arbor Holistic Chamber of Commerce. She is a member of Physicians for Social Responsibility, and Society for Shamanic Practice, and Center for Shamanic Education and Exchange. Dr. Quinn maintains a naturopathic license in the state of Vermont. Due to the lack of licensing naturopathic medicine in the state of Michigan, she is unable to provide primary care or accept insurance, but she offers a sliding scale in effort to increase access to holistic medicine for those who seek it.
An avid environmentalist, she loves spending time in nature. Her pastimes include knitting, reading, smashing the patriarchy, and cooking delicious meals for her family. She lives with her wife and their four daughters in Southeast Michigan.
