Rachel Sterry, N.D.

Dr. Rachel Sterry graduated from the National College of Natural Medicine and is now practicing as a licensed Naturopath in the state of Oregon. She is an avid proponent of minimally invasive therapy, employing modalities such as homeopathy, botanical medicine and nutrition to discern and treat the inciting cause of any given illness. To this end, Dr. Sterry has furthered her studies under the tutelage of Dr. Paul Herscu, the creator of Cycles and Segments a method to homeopathic prescribing, and Sharol Tilgner, the founder of Wise Acres herbal farm.

Dr. Sterry has been fortunate to work with patients exhibiting a broad range of conditions; from autoimmune and cardiovascular disease, to neurotransmitter imbalances, and through this has learned that one of the best tools at her disposal is education. In her experience, embodying the naturopathic tenant of docere, or doctor as teacher, encourages patients to take an active role in their health care, fostering a greater sense of commitment, and facilitating a much deeper understanding of how to reach and maintain optimal health.

Dr. Sterry welcomes collaborative approaches to health care and believes that working as part of an integrated team can be mutually beneficial for both patients and practitioners. As a primary care provider it is her goal to act in whatever capacity necessary to reestablish a balance between the mental, physical and emotional aspects of wellness in her patients. For this to occur there must exist open lines of communication and a relinquishing of ego in both directions. For Dr. Sterry, achieving optimum health is not a linear progression, but instead a continuum that naturally waxes and wanes as the next layer in our personal evolution is uncovered. It is her sincere hope that she can help to ease patients through these phases in their lives, and assist in implementing strategies that minimize potentially deleterious side effects inherent in the human experience.
