Naturopathic medical student-researcher and Blogger in Portland, Oregon
I am a naturopathic medical student conducting research on herbal medicine and inflammation. I am passionate about whole health systems because I want to view health and wellness from a holistic standpoint.
My passion is understanding health from a variety of perspectives; modern evidence-based perspectives as well as eastern medical systems like Ayurveda and Chinese medicine, and shamanism from South America, Asia, and Africa.
To solve the world's pressing health problems, we need more than modern medicine's technological advances and modern drugs. We need a broad view of a patient's condition and be able to address more than the symptoms on the surface. I hope to see in my lifetime a change in the landscape of medicine that incorporates these missing variables.
