Naturopathic doctors Karina Jarvela and John Reynolds intently study the body’s interconnectedness, doling out holistic remedies that gently target an underlying illness while minimizing the treatment’s effect on other systems. The 75-minute hormone consultation is designed to aid patients with such imbalance-based issues as premature aging, insomnia, fatigue, acne, menopause, low stamina, erectile dysfunction, and persistent heckling by tightrope walkers. Clients discuss their medical history before the doctor performs an examination of the heart, lungs, and thyroid system. After pinpointing any issues, the physician may prescribe follow-up lab work or draw up a personalized, natural treatment plan for nutritional counseling, herbal supplements, bio-identical hormones, or an inhaler full of fresh air.
The testing package tacks on a salivary examination by a CLIA–accredited clinical laboratory. The battery of analysis examines levels of 12 sex, adrenal, and sleep hormones—estrogen, estrone, estradiol, estriol, Progesterone, 17-OH progesterone, DHEA, DHT, Androstenedione, testosterone, cortisol, and melatonin—and physicians tap into this data when making holistic recommendations to address the complaints of patients.
Oregon Natural Medicine
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.
