My journey to naturopathic medicine was certainly not planned, but has been life changing. I had no expectations either high or low, but what I discovered and learned along the way has exceeded any expectations I might have had. Dr. Christie has a large capacity for compassion and most important listens to everything you say and also seems to understand the things you might not be able to express. I am getting results and feel better than I have in years! I am also learning that the part of naturopathic medicine that I did not anticipate is learning to be proactive and invest in your body, change your lifestyle instead of waiting for everything to collapse! Dr. Christie has taught me to look at the physicial, emotional and spiritual aspects of my life; they are all connected and need to work in harmony. This has been a life changing experience and I am so grateful my journey led me to Dr. Christie!N.M., 55 year old female, Portland, OR
In the Feel well, Ride well program, I have decreased my cholesterol, eradicated my arthritis pain, and addressed my long-time anxiety, which helps me in my riding and showing, and improves the general quality of my life! Dr. Winkelman also figured out the cause of my once-debilitating fatigue, so that I have more usable hours in my day. T. S., 55 year old female, Sherwood, OR
Most of my life I have spent visiting doctors and nurses who were members of the American Medical Association. While many of them were good people, some of their methodologies perplexed and even disturbed me. One year ago I injured myself in a dance class. It was enough to stop me from dancing, from doing pilates and most of the physical activity I loved. A short recuperation and I injured myself again. I also started to feel ill. Not a big “you are sick” kind of feeling, but one that my body was telling me things were not right. This went on for some weeks with this mystery illness affecting everything in my life, my state of mind, my eating patterns, my weight, my ability to handle my job.I was scared, concerned, and confused.My search for a doctor led me to Insights to Health with the help of a very good friend of mine. She recommended Dr. Brooke Huffman to me.Since seeing Dr. Brooke my entire life has changed. I am healthy, happy, and on a wonderful road of wellness and well being. To say I was skeptical and uneasy is an understatement at my first visit to a naturopathic physician, but I can say the staff and my doctor put all that uneasiness to rest. Dr. Brooke took time to get to know me, and what was going on in my life.She set me on a path of eating and living for health.I would, with every fiber of my being recommend this naturopathic clinic to everyone seeking a healthy, sustainable life.B.G., 55 year old female, Portland, OR
When Western medicine failed to acknowledge I even had a problem, or that there might be a non-pharmaceutical method for treating it, I decided to look into naturopathy. A skeptic at first, I am now a firm believer that naturopathy is the most natural, safe, and effective form of healthcare. Though the idea of taking a pill to alleviate all of my problems seemed alluring, it ultimately proved ineffective. After countless trials with different types of birth control pills and anti-depressants, I determined that conventional medicine’s cure was worse than the illness. As a result, I gave up treatment altogether and resigned myself to living with a sometimes-debilitating hormonal imbalance. One day, in desperation, I searched online and found Dr. Christie Winkelman, a naturopath who (according to her Internet profile) had worked with many women experiencing similar hormonal issues. Under Dr. Christie’s care, I have learned how the physical, mental, emotional, and even spiritual aspects of my life are all connected and interrelated. From this perspective, Insights to Health offers the kind of coordinated care every patient dreams of—one in which the well-being of the entire person is both recognized and validated. My journey into naturopathy began by focusing on diet and nutrition. With great patience and understanding, Dr. Christie eased me through the lifestyle changes I needed to make. Eventually, however, my treatment plan became about so much mor…
Internet research led me to Dr. Christie Winkelman, hoping to get off the asthma medication I had been on for 35 years ~ I wanted to give my body a rest from the ongoing medications. I have been free of the daily asthma medications for almost two years and can count on one hand the occasions I have needed an emergency inhaler over the past 14 months. Dr. Winkelman’s gentle and thorough approach to health has not only greatly improved my breathing, but has also helped me lose 50 pounds, improve my blood chemistry, and I am virtually free from arthritis pain and stiffness. I am working with Dr. Gil Winkelman and neurofeedback to regulate my blood pressure.I continue to make life-style improvements and have greatly benefited from both of the Dr. Winkelman’s holistic approach to patient care: their ongoing support of me as a person and their continual encouragement is helping me meet challenges and accomplish personal goals.D.S., 63 year old female, Portland, OR
I started seeing Dr. Noska because I was having pain in my foot. He suggested I start wearing a zero-heel shoe with the Correct Toes and he usually also does a cold-laser treatment on my foot/ankle/leg. The cold-laser treatments and the new shoes seem to be lessening the amount of pain! Dr. Noska seems very knowledgeable and I am impressed with how he listens to what I have to say.
Dr. Christie Winkelman does one of the most detailed health histories I’ve ever seen. Not only did I have 6 pages of paperwork to complete before I got there, she had actually spent time reviewing it before I met her and jotted down some notes so we could discuss more. Their approach is holistic, and I mean it – they were counselors before they were NDs.Next, I’ll say you feel like you are being heard, and that you matter. They are not there to tell you what’s wrong with you – they’re there to help put everything in balance.This is NOT cheap – seriously. If you have insurance, use it. If you don’t… don’t be surprised if each visit is about $200, including medicinary. However, personally, I think it’s worth it.P.F., 48 year old female, Portland, OR
Cold laser and spinal adjustments at Insights to Health resolved some tendonitis I had had for a very long time. My shoulders are looser, which means I am using my aids more effectively, and working on the holding patterns in my back means I am sitting up straighter in the saddle and using my core muscles better. Dietary changes have given me greater stamina and strength, and have helped my weight to be constant without effort. I am a stronger, more confident rider as a result. I am making amazing progress in my riding goals!! Thank you!! C.T., 43 year old female, Portland, OR
This cleanse has been nothing short of totally transformational, and not just a physical transformation. Of course, I am thrilled to have lost 25 pounds at this point and I am feeling great in my clothes, but this has done way more for me on multiple levels. The length of time and adherence to the program has changed long-standing behavior patterns surrounding food and has given me a clarity regarding compulsive eating that I have never experienced before. I am enjoying physical health and a radiant sense of well-being. The detox has felt like a vacation for my body. Instead of feeling like it was overly restrictive, I enjoyed the simplicity and freedom of the program. Overall, the most profound discovery for me was breaking the bad blood sugar roller coaster. Before the detox, I was in survival mode: crashing and unable to function when I had a dip in blood sugar that left me craving coffee, chocolate and sugary, floury things to get another lift, and then crashing even more after eating. My weight continued to increase in this endless cycle and I was a wreck. I have never before experienced such a tremendous, even, balanced and consistent energy level. This program has brought me out of the downward spiral and into a whole new orientation in which I can let my body provide me with ample energy without relying on unhealthy substances for short term bursts of energy with bad consequences for my health. Thank you, Dr. Christie! C.K., 38 year old female, Portland, OR
I cannot say enough about both Drs. Gil and Christie Winkelman, Naturopathic Physicians. They are both incredibly talented doctors and amazing human beings. They have the perfect combination of wisdom and intellect, along with loving kindness and compassion. I’ve been a yo yo dieter for more than 20 years, and to finally find a program (Insights to Health’s 21-Day Weight Loss and Detox) that feels like it’s more about healing from the inside rather than obsession with how I look, was refreshing. Dr. Christie’s guidance and especially her responsiveness and accessibility via e-mail to answer questions, along with the proven protocols, supported me in shedding 30 pounds over the summer. I feel like I now have the knowledge and understanding of my body to be able to maintain my health and weight from this point forth. I feel great physically, mentally and emotionally. I am so very grateful for the process.D.M., 39 year old female, Portland, OR
