My career as a Naturopathic Physician first began as a patient. Suffering for 10+ years with recurrent health problems, the only solutions I received from medical doctors were several rounds of antibiotics and minor surgery.
Frustrated with the state of my health and lack of treatment options, I began my search for natural alternatives. My visit with Dr. Amalia Punzo, MD, a practicing homeopath, was a life-changing one. Her guidance and prescribed homeopathic remedy finally put me on the road to healing.
Not only did the remedy address my physical symptoms, but it also addressed underlying emotional symptoms that were ultimately the cause of my illness. After all those years of antibiotics and minor surgery, it was clear to me that I wanted to do for others what Dr.Punzo did for me.
I graduated from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2003, one of the four licensing naturopathic schools in the country. Please go to www.ncnm.edu for more information about the program and curriculum. I began my practice in Oregon in 2005.
Treating patients with naturopathic medicine requires a great deal of commitment. I work very hard to ensure the best possible care for each patient. In return, I expect that each patient is committed to their healing process. Healing is just that - a process of involvement, challenges, perseverance but most importantly, empowerment. That is the beauty of natural medicine – self empowerment and the ability to heal. Here’s to your health!
