Doctors for general health care, preventive medicine
advice, and for the diagnosis and treatment of all acute and
Naturopathic medicine has its own therapeutic specialties, utilizing mostly
- Botanical Medicine
- Minor Surgery
- Natural Hormones
- Nutritional Supplementation including Intravenous Therapy
such as High Dose Vitamin C therapy
In Oregon, Naturopathic Doctors have prescriptive rights for a broad
range of pharmaceutical agents, also.
Naturopathic Doctors utilize state of the art laboratory evaluations for
acute and chronic disease presentations.
- Diagnositc Imaging
- Routine PAPS
- Comprehensive Profiles, lipids, complete white & red blood cell counts
- Thyroid Profiles
- Hepatic Detoxification Profile
- Toxic Heavy Metal Analysis
- Pesticide and Solvent Exposure
- Hormone Saliva Test
- Comprehensive Diagnostic Stool Panel
Each patient receives a comprehensive
medical evaluation, physical examination and relevant laboratory work-up.
Most insurance plans cover naturopathic

Japanese Nuclear Activity May Pose Radiation Exposure to US
12:48 am edt
Due to the earthquake and subsequent damage to the nuclear plants in Japan, the potential for radiation exposure from the
cloud/storm systems traveling across the Pacific ocean presents itself. The expected land fall of the Pacific front would
be sometime this week3/16-18, 2011.
Treatment - Seaweed combinations of Wakame, Kombu, Kelp, Fronds, Iridea, Fucus...
will help to offset one's exposure to the radioactive iodine, strontium, and cesium. Taking potassium iodine or Lugol's
solution will help to saturate Iodine receptors on the thyroid, also; but this will not reduce other radioactive elements
from being absorbed.
Treat your animals, also with the seaweed powder. 1-2 tsp daily or 600-1200 mg
2-3 times daily. For children the dose would be half.
Powder can be dusted on popcorn, potatoes, salads, vegetables,
or anywhere where a salty flavor (somewhat fishy) would be palatable. You can also just encapsulate the powder and take
6-10 (00) caps daily.

The Wound That Doesn't Heal
6:15 pm est
Acute inflammation by definition is a finite self-limiting presentation. All chronic inflammation begins as acute
inflammation but does not follow the well-orchestrated process of acute inflammation. Observations suggest that chronic
inflammation is involved in tumor initiation, promotion, and progression. The chronic inflammatory condition
contributes to 15-25% of all cancer conditions worldwide. Examples of chronic inflammatory conditions that are associated
with cancer risks include the following: Schistosoma hematobium with bladder cancer; H. pylori with gastric adenocarcinoma;
hepatitis viuse with cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma, asbestos-induced inflammation with bronchogenic carcinoma or
mesothelioma; and HPV with cervical cancer.
Does a tumor facilitate its exitence through the manipulation of hte immune
system and the promotion of chronic inflammatory mechanisms, or does a chronic inflammatory condition proactively recruit
and transform stem cells into tumor cells? The interplay and paradoxical patterns of innate and adaptive cellular communication
promote a proinflammatory and protumorigenic environment that allows tumors to grow and escape immune surveillance.
At determined points, the inflammatory pathways benefit the host through the repair and remodeling of the extracellular matrix
and vascular system, remobal of bacterial proliferation through oxidative burst and phagocytic engulfing, and appropriate
surveillance of renegade cellular division. On the other hand, these same custodians of tissue trauma, pathogenic invasion,
impaired cellular growth, angiogenesis, and oxidative damage will become traitors tothe well-being of the host after reachin
critical mass in the chronic state of disease. In the region of neoplastic development in association with chronic inflammation,
the collaboration between the innate and adaptive immune systems can favor the development of cancer progression.
a naturopathic physician, my treatment principles have foundations in the biochemical signalling that can generate and contribute
to ongoing chronic disease and potential tumor formation. I work to assess and treat pathways of inflammation.
These protocols include assessing diet and life style, suggesting herbal and nutritional formulas and utilizing principles
of natuopathic medicine to guide me in suggesting treatments for prevention and elimination of inflammation and the promotion
of a balanced vs a rogue immune state in the body.
