Ongoing education is essential.

The state of Oregon mandates that each naturopathic doctor complete 30 hours of continuing education (physician level) annually.  Our responsibility to our patients well-being demands even more.  Many of our physicians are speakers at national conferences in the areas of research and oncology. The doctors at the Clinic of Natural Medicine stay up to date on the latest integrative medicine research to provide you with expert care.

We are uniquely trained physicians with natural medicine infused throughout our formal medical education. Naturopathic physicians receive extensive training in nutrition, homeopathy, vitamins, minerals, and herbal medicine combined with standard training all physicians receive in pharmacology, physiology, clinical diagnosis, laboratory diagnosis, and other areas of study.

While medical school provided a foundation for a lifetime of learning, the naturopathic physicians at Pacific Integrative Oncology have had a variety of professional experiences that have shaped their unique expertise.  Observation of our patients, assessment of their progress, collaboration with our peers, and continual feedback from thousands of patients, results in better care for the next patient. Our clinical expertise saves our patients time, money, and frustration, while providing a plan.

We do not have set protocols. We do not have a program.

We customize treatment for each patient. It is the only way to provide the best care possible, and cannot be found in any book, website, or other avenue.

Natural Medicine and Conventional Cancer Treatments

If you or someone you know are receiving cancer treatment that includes chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery, some natural medicines are not only safe to, but are recommended to use with conventional therapies to improve quality of life and increase efficacy.  However, just because a substance is ‘natural’ does not mean it is ‘safe’ or is recommended with any type of cancer.  Determining what diets, nutritional supplements, botanical medicines, exercise, and other integrative therapies are appropriate for a specific cancer, cancer treatment, and any other conditions a patient may have requires experience and expertise.  The naturopathic doctors affiliated with Pacific Integrative Oncology have worked with thousands of patients with cancer, and can help you navigate your journey—from initial diagnosis through survivorship.
