Treatment of Chronic Illness in NW Portland Oregon

Chronic illness often leaves people frustrated and at wits' end. Even the the best of conventional treatments may not address the suffering of these conditions. The symptoms of persons with chronic illnesses may cause them to feel tired, irritable and unwell. Though they may know that lifestyle changes may help them, they feel stuck and unable to make those changes.

Through combining my knowledge of naturopathic, Chinese, and mind-body medicine, I support people in their path to health. Energetic medicines such as acupuncture and homeopathy often aid people in removing the blocks impeding better self-care choices. Counseling and lifestyle changes help to address the multi-faceted dimensions of illnesses.

I collaborate with primary care physicians, physicians of various specialties, and practitioners of other healing modalities to provide comprehensive care that addresses the needs of the patient as a whole person.

In my practice of combining naturopathic, Chinese, and mind-body medicine, I have seen patients with the following conditions respond favorably:
