What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic physicians are licensed by the state of Oregon and recognized as primary care providers. They specialize in identifying the underlying causes of illness and disease, and treating patients through natural means to restore and maintain health and well-being. Our naturopathic doctors (NDs) are trained in conventional biomedical sciences as well as natural medicine treatment modalities. Your ND will utilize the time-tested knowledge of naturopathic medicine along with routine medical labs and other tests to diagnose disease and monitor your health. NDs are trained and licensed to prescribe pharmaceutical medicines as well as herbal medicines, and understand the potential drug interactions that can inhibit your body’s innate ability to heal.
Naturopathic medicine offers safe, cost-effective, preventive health solutions for minor, chronic and acute health conditions. Your treatment plan may include a variety of interventions and diagnostics—from nutritional and lifestyle counseling, to herbal medicine and more.
What is Classical Chinese Medicine?
The practice of classical Chinese medicine is rooted in the profound ancient wisdom and time-honored experience of medical providers in China. Our faculty, expert practitioners in the field of Chinese medicine, work with their student interns to bring you the highest quality of care. They will listen closely to your health concerns and evaluate your physical, emotional and mental well-being by using diagnostic techniques unique to the medicine. Most commonly, a patient will be treated with acupuncture and herbal remedies. Other treatments may include cupping, shiatsu, moxibustion, and movement therapies like qigong.
A Wellness Medicinary…Just For You
Our health center has a retail medicinary that offers patients a comprehensive selection of supplements, herbs, homeopathic remedies, tinctures and other products.
