As a naturopathic physician, I am a general practice doctor excited by working with and treating whole families as necessary.
I am comfortable treating all kinds of health concerns with people of all ages. My favorite treatment options for painful
conditions such as MVA injuries are physical medicine
modalities that include ultrasound, massage, spinal manipulation, and prolotherapy
. I prescribe many herbal medicines, specific nutrients at therapeutic doses, and homeopathic remedies. Some patients
are candidates for intravenous therapies such as vitamin and mineral 'cocktails', dilute hydrogen peroxide for infections
and soon, chelation therpy
for chronic cardiovascular disease.
Naturopathic doctors have a broad scope of practice in the State of Oregon. As a result, the services that I can offer
are quite wide ranging. In addition to office visits to discuss your health concerns, I use many kinds of therapies for the
relief of pain or functional disturbances. I am also licensed to prescribe most conventional medicines used
by primary care physicians to control infections, treat hormonal dysfunctions, and manage pain.
In addition, I use conventional and alternative laboratory tests to help diagnose and understand the nature of a
patient's condition. Food allergy testing, heavy metal toxicity testing, intestinal and glandular function testing are all
available in my office. I often suggest conventional laboratory evaluations as well. This might include blood
and chemistry screenings, hormonal evaluation, and other standard diagnostic tests.
