NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE

Naturopathic physicians are primary care doctors that focus on prevention. Naturopathic visits are for finding and treating the root cause of illness, not just masking your symptoms with medications or unnecessary treatments. 

With a naturopathic doctor, you can optimize your wellness with comprehensive dietary and lifestyle interventions. 

Naturopathic Medicine

ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is a well-established branch of medicine that has roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine and has been practiced for thousands of years. Today, acupuncture is performed by licensed acupuncturists and physicians in clinics and hospitals worldwide.

Stimulation of acupuncture points can treat a wide variety of conditions, and is most commonly used for pain relief and re-balancing the body to enhance wellness.

Sports Medicine

Both locals and visitors to the outdoorsy Northwest are often physically active. With hectic schedules, old injuries and the effects of aging, it can be challenging to maintain peak performance. At Overland Wellness, you can receive the appropriate treatment modality to facilitate your recovery and speed your return to athletic participation. 

 While chronic overuse injuries and strains are more common, acute injuries do occur. When indicated, Dr. Overland orders diagnostic imaging and referrals for additional evaluation. Referrals may include physical therapy and surgical evaluation. Additionally, we use therapeutic modalities such as bodywork, athletic and Kinesio taping, hot and cold therapy, home exercises and ergonomic evaluation. With naturopathic expertise, Dr. Overland can also determine your optimal dietary and lifestyle recommendations for recovery. Our goal is for you to be able to be active and enjoy optimal performance when enjoying the athletics you love.

Get Started

Anti-Aging Medicine

While aging is a normal and natural part of life, Dr. Overland doesn’t believe that things such as fatigue, reduced activity, and cognitive decline should be simply accepted. With the proper dietary and lifestyle interventions, people can age gracefully and even feel more youthful and vigorous than ever before. People should have the tools they need to live their best and most active life, regardless of what stage of life they’re in. 

Dr. Overland is a healthcare provider that focuses on improving your quality of life so that you can do the things that mean the most to you. Whether your focus is improving your performance at work or being able to participate in rigorous outdoors activities, Overland Wellness has treatment options to help you get there.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture treatments can be minimal, such as the 5 needle protocol commonly used to curb cravings, or more in-depth such as scar or nerve damage focused treatments. Needles are always tiny, sterile and single-use, but may range from barely visible to suitable to treat large muscle groups. Most people barely feel the needle insertion, but may experience differing sensations such as movement, increased circulation and relaxation during treatments. 

Facial Rejuvenation

Aesthetic acupuncture for facial rejuvenation uses acupuncture and tui na  techniques to enhance skin health and appearance. By enhancing well being, increasing blood flow and promoting collagen formation, it can brighten and clear the skin as well as reduce the appearance of fine lines and dark circles. Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is a natural and minimally invasive way to help you look and feel like your best self. 

Cupping

Cupping is a technique often used with acupuncture, acupressure and tui na to release fascia and muscular restrictions. This technique uses suction inside cups that are placed directly on your skin over areas of tension. These are either left in place or moved around a broad area using therapeutic massage oil. This can reduce headache, stiffness, help painful injuries heal and even reduce  cold/flu season aches.

Tui Na

Tui na is a therapeutic technique similar to massage that is often used with acupuncture. This can treat conditions such as plantar fasciitis, headaches, back and neck pain, and also treat both new and longstanding injuries. Tui na uses firm soft tissue release techniques akin to a deep tissue or sports-focused massage and is used to stimulate acupuncture points and channels. This results in release of muscle and fascia restrictions, which improves ergonomics, enhances circulation and reduces pain.

Botanical Medicine

Naturopathic physicians are the only primary care physicians whose medical education includes rigorous botanical/ herbal medicine training. Dr. Overland is highly skilled in using botanical medicine.

Botanical medicine is usful for a wide variety of conditions. Treatments can be for hormonal balancing, skin improvement, digestion and even fighting the cold and flu.

Botanical medicines are minimally or unprocessed plant substances. Herbal medicines are prescribed in a variety of forms, including tinctures, teas, glycerites and even topical (skin) applications.

The use of herbal medicine is well established and supported by deep traditional roots as well as cutting edge scientific research. It is widely acknowledged to be safe and effective when used properly under a Doctor’s supervision. 

Hormone Balancing

Hormones act as messengers that govern a wide variety of processes in our bodies. Imbalance can result in a cascade of symptoms and trend towards declining health. Dr. Overland can order the proper tests to determine whether you are in balance,

While natural hormone therapy or supplemental testosterone and bio-identical hormones may be what you think of, they are just one aspect of hormonal balancing.

There are a myriad of other systems and hormones that can have significant impact on your health such as thyroid, cortisol and insulin. 

After a thorough review your lab results, Dr. Overland can help you start on a treatment plan that can restore the balance and improve your wellness.

Prevention

Prevention is well known as the key to a long and healthy life. It is also the secret to enhancing and maintaining your quality of life. When focusing on wellness rather than illness, you unlock your potential for a vibrant and active life for decades to come.

While Dr. Overland is skilled in treating injuries and managing diseases, she prefers to focus on wellness optimization. 

Prevention allows you to enjoy your best life rather than just chasing treatments and fixing problems after they’ve become entrenched. With preventive medicine and wellness optimization at Overland Wellness, you can improve focus, increase energy, enhance your cognitive function, and become the most vigorous and dynamic version of yourself.

Dietary Changes

There is a lot of information and even more misinformation circulating about diets, health benefits and foods. Dr. Overland can help you determine what dietary modifications, if any, are appropriate for you.

For example, food cravings can provide excellent information for your physician to use in the diagnosis of certain conditions and deficiencies, but they’re not the best guidelines to determine what you should eat. Our standard dietary practices are often grossly out of tune with what our bodies actually need. 

Nutritional imbalances and vitamin deficiencies can result from dietary restrictions, medications and even lifestyle practices. You may also be wondering about dietary key words such as inflammation, gluten, dairy, paleo and keto. Dr. Overland can help you develop a healthy and balanced dietary plan.
