Doctor's visits can be a high-anxiety experience due to the proliferation of chemically manufactured prescription drugs and the all too common use of human-to-human jumper cables. Ease fears with a holistic approach to health with today’s Groupon at Oregon Natural Medicine on Northeast 42nd Avenue. Choose between two options:
- For $99, you get a 75-minute naturopathic consult, exam, and treatment (a $230 value).
- For $120, you get a digital infrared breast thermography and follow-up appointment (a $245 value).
Oregon Natural Medicine heals broken-down bodies with natural and homeopathic health solutions for a wide range of men’s and women’s health needs. Oregon state-board licensed naturopathic physician Karina Jarvela leads visitors through a 75-minute meeting, which includes a medical history interview, an exam, and treatment. Treatment may include recommendations for a lifestyle or diet change, herbal supplement, hormone therapy, or refraining from carrying around a stick of Kryptonite. Women will work with Dr. Jarvela, while men will find expert health advice and bowtie-tying tips from XY-chromosome expert Dr. John Reynolds.
Healthy-living lovers can elect the breast thermography, a noninvasive and pain-free test that can spot breast cancer up to eight years before a mammography or roughly 15 years before a haunted dreamcatcher. The test detects the presence of increased cellular activity and new blood-vessel formation, which can indicate early signs of cancer. The exam will take 30 minutes, but sophisticated imaging system will need time to brood in a dark room listening to Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon backward, so patients should schedule their 15-minute follow-up visit to discuss the findings 10–15 days after their initial appointment.

As Oregon Natural Medicine's physicians, Shannon Reive-Schmidt and John Reynolds were both inspired at an early age to delve into the field of medicine. Now, Drs. Reive-Schmidt and Reynolds use their expertise to focus on health through holistic practices, laser therapy, and hormonal treatment. Dr. Reive-Schmidt's particular interest in women's health, pediatric care, and brain health have afforded her success in treating hormonal imbalances and head injuries through a combination of herbal medicine, homeopathy, neurofeedback therapy, and bio-identical hormones.
For his part, John Reynolds's path to medicine began at a young age, as well. After graduating from the University of Florida with a degree in psychology, he traveled the United States caring for patients in community-health clinics and providing counseling for feuds with invisible friends at a children's nonprofit. John eventually completed his medical training at the National College of Natural Medicine and settled in Oregon, where his extensive experience in mood disorders, thyroid dysfunction, laser therapy, gastrointestinal issues, and hormonal imbalances complement Dr. Reive-Schmidt's expertise.
