Naturopathic Medicine is a branch of healing that combines centuries of old natural therapies with the current understanding of health and human systems. It encompasses all aspects of family health from prenatal to geriatric care, and emphasizes prevention and self-care. Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) embrace six major philosophies, the three that best summarize the foundation of the profession are Vis Medicatrix Naturae (healing power of nature), Primum Nocere (first do no harm) and Tolle Causum (remove the cause of disease). This refers to their belief of using the healing power of nature and the least invasive methods to treat the cause rather than just symptoms of disease. Naturopathic Medicine focuses on supporting the body’s innate ability to heal itself with supplementation of herbs, diet and nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy and lifestyle management.
Dr. Kristina loves working with families. Watching families thrive is one of her greatest pleasures. Her practice is built around helping both adults and children reach their vision of optimal health. This means supporting mothers and fathers during pregnancy and postpartum to ensure that they will have the stamina to care for their growing family. Parenthood can be tough, especially when one feels worn out and run down. Dr. Kristina has tools and provides options to help new parents and seasoned parents alike feel their best, so that they can take more pleasure in their parenting roles.
In addition to her school mandated clinical training from the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, OR, she completed over 1200 hours of clinical training in primary care, midwifery and pediatrics with the doctors at Vibrant Family Medicine in Gresham Oregon. Following graduation, Dr. Kristina joined the amazing ND midwives at Vibrant Family Medicine in Gresham. It was during this time that she honed her skills as a family doctor.

Dr. Kristina’s office visits are different than that of most doctors, because she educate her patients about their concerns and the various treatment options available to them.
