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.
I went through Breast Cancer Treatment a couple of years ago and once I was finished with the chemo, multiple surgeries and drug infusions, I had extremely high inflammation in all my joints. The only relief offered by traditional medicine was a series of steroid shots in all my joints. I was told if that did not work, I could be on a maintenance drug. That was not an option for me at the age of 53. Dr. Noska began a series of treatments for me and within a couple of months—I was at least 50% better. I continued with all his recommendations and today I am happy to say I am a 90% improved and I have my life back. L.L., 55 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
I started seeing Dr. Christie Winkelman at Insights to Health after dealing with three months of chest and sinus congestion this past winter. I love Dr. Christie’s approach to medicine. Her goal was to heal my immune system so that I would not be inclined to catch every bug; and to be able to recover quicker from an illness. Such a great approach. Staying healthy equates to more time in the saddle. And we all know, that is a very good thing. S.R., 54 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
Our son broke out in a severe eczema rash when he was 6 months old. He was uncomfortable, not sleeping well, and not gaining weight as he should have been. Through the thoughtful guidance of Dr. Huffman, we made significant changes to his diet to help find an allergen/food intolerance, and worked to strengthen and heal his digestive system through homeopathic remedies, probiotics and fish oil. Within weeks we saw improvement in his skin, sleep and weight gain. He is now a healthy, eczema free 14 month old boy, with a digestive system strong enough to handle a healthy diet. We’re thankful that Dr. Huffman took time to listen to our concerns, that she encouraged our role as parents and our ability to care for our son. We were always comfortable to ask questions and actively participate in our son’s care, and never felt that decisions were being made without us fully understanding our care plan. We recommend Dr. Huffman and the Insights to Health Clinic to anyone seeking improvement to their health.M.K., 30 year old female, Portland, OR
I sought out care from Dr. Noska for pain in my shoulder from a rotator cuff injury. Months of physical therapy had not been helping markedly, but after just one session of cold laser, my pain (which was limiting my activities and interrupting my life enjoyment substantially) was reduced 90% and my mobility was greatly increased! After 3 sessions I am closer to 100% healed. I cannot believe this incredible technology and am telling everyone I know with pain of any type to visit Dr. Noska and Insights to Health. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I saw Dr. Gil Winkelman a number of times regarding some issues I had with sinus congestion. He suggested that I follow a ‘anti-inflammatory’ diet and prescribed some homeopathic remedies that were quite helpful. I noticed a definite improvement in my condition and was impressed by the connection between this diet and the congestion. Dr. Winkelman was very knowledgeable of the possible naturopathic treatments and was very patient and easy to work with. I highly recommend him for your naturopathic doctor needs! J.

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
When I decided to go to “Insights to Health” to see Dr. Gil Winkelman for the first time it was because like a lot of people, I wanted to explore what Naturopathic Medicine could offer. After having a couple of issues that came up with being a 40 year old male who hasn’t always eaten right throughout his life, but became fed up with conventional medical doctors who only had time to discuss two issues per visit, spending no more than fifteen minutes with me and then just handing me a bunch of prescriptions that really didn’t fix my problems and seemed to make things worse.Well let’s just say that going Dr. Winkelman is not like going to any other doctor you have ever been to and to just give him a glowing recommendation is an understatement.Dr. Gil Winkelman and Insights to Health is the best-kept health secret in Portland, Oregon because there is no other doctor in Portland that listens to your health problems and concerns with more knowledge, understanding and empathy than Dr. Winkelman does.S.K., 42 year old male, Portland, OR
