For more than a decade, the skilled medical staff at the Portland Clinic of Holistic Health has fostered naturopathic healing through holistic nutritional therapy. During the one-hour initial visit, a skilled physician conducts a physical examination and a nutritional questionnaire to assess each patient's overall health, dietary habits, and silverware preferences, including holistic evaluation of the tongue, nails, and iris; blood pressure and adrenal gland function test; and calcium and essential fatty acids test. The staff takes a small blood sample, often from the patient's earlobe, for the blood-inflammation test, which is used with the Carroll food-intolerance test to pinpoint foods that the body does not efficiently digest or metabolize. Left undigested, harmful byproducts linger in the bloodstream and can trigger digestive discomfort, kidney problems, and arthritic pain. A 45-minute follow-up visit reviews the results of your blood test and nutritional assessment, outlining a strategic dietary plan to optimize your personal food tolerance by limiting combinations that, like the news that you'll be sharing a room with your grandparents, prove difficult to digest.
Portland Clinic of Holistic Health
Portland Clinic of Holistic Health's trio of eminently qualified physicians—Dr. Eric Blake, Dr. Christopher Metro, and Dr. Melissa Woodyard—each found their path to naturopathic medicine differently, and the combination of their histories and talents creates a clinic equipped to handle everything from acupuncture to natural childbirth. The basic philosophy behind naturopathic treatment involves reducing excesses—whether it be of toxins, calories, or stressors—and restoring deficiencies through nutritional counseling and relaxing exercises. The clinic repertoire of services includes several procedures, including naturopathic physiotherapy and Carroll Food Intolerance Testing, which can reveal particular sensitivity to edibles such as legumes, milk, and pinecones.
