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
Dr. Noska began treating my daughter in October for dance-related pain to her feet and ankles. She had been complaining of it daily and I was really concerned. Dr. Noska was able to do a few adjustments to her feet, some cold laser treatments, and he also fit Correct Toes for her feet. Within a few days I had not heard any complaints of pain, even after dance class! She told me, “The pain is gone, Mom!” She just went to a competition in Seattle this weekend and was pain free. She continues to wear her Correct Toes for some time every day, and I am confident that this protocol will help prevent much dance related pain and injury in the future. Thank you, Dr. Noska and Insights to Health Clinic! J. T. (mother of 9 year old girl), Portland, OR
Dr. Brooke’s compassionate and all-inclusive approach to curbing my smoking addiction made the process far easier than I could have possibly anticipated. It was important to me to pursue a method that was natural as well as safe and effective, and the lobelia extract tincture which she provided as part of my regimen was instrumental in keeping the cravings to an absolute minimum. This therapy, in addition to the supplements she had prescribed (combined with her non-judgmental support), convinced me very early on that I had made the right choice in consulting Dr. Brooke with this decision.
Working with Dr. Christie Winkelman has helped me to get my life back. When I first saw her, I suffered with fatigue, joint pain, digestive difficulties, and many other “minor” symptoms that I felt were messages my body was trying to send me. I’m a pharmacist, so was sure there was something wrong, yet II felt hopeless because doctors I’d gone to previously hadn’t been able to help, and worse, made me feel like I was a hypochondriac.Dr. Winkelman believed me and has worked with me and supported me through a journey that’s lasted 2.5 years so far. I have done my best to follow her recommended treatment plans. I have made changes in lifestyle, eating habits, sleeping patterns, and more. When I fall back into old habits, or am unable to follow a treatment plan 100%, I forgive myself and start up again as I am able.The results are that I feel energetic and alive again. My joints no longer ache, anxiety is gone, my digestion is improved, the other “minor” symptoms have all cleared up, and I’ve lost 30 pounds of excess weight effortlessly. We were able to facilitate these positive changes even in the midst of a chaotic period of life that included 5 moves, 2 job changes, and a divorce.The short message is that working with Dr. Christie can change your life. All it takes is the will to be better, the determination to change, and the perseverance to follow those treatment plans!Thank you, Dr. Winkelman!C.S., 50 year old female, Minneapolis, MN
I had an old sprained ankle injury that had not healed in two years. When Dr. Winkelman wanted to do cold laser on it, I was skeptical but agreed, since everything else she has done for me has been effective! After one treatment, my pain was gone and has not returned in three months. Since then we have treated other areas of old pains and those have greatly reduced as well. I cannot believe how much better my body is feeling, and how used to my prior level of pain I had become. I am skiing again this year! Thank you Insights to Health!
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.Z.A., 47 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…
After only three sessions of neurofeedback with Dr. Gil Winkelman, I am noticing a definite improvement in my concentration, focus, and ability to do many complex tasks without being overwhelmed. I feel as though I am finally coming out of a longstanding fog! In addition to having a gentle and kind bedside manner, Dr. Winkelman is very skilled and knowledgeable both about neurofeedback and medicine in general. He has also recommended natural medicines that have improved my overall health and well-being, and I look forward to further improving and maintaining my health with his holistic approach even after my neurofeedback sessions are over. I couldn’t be more pleased. C.S., 39 year old female, Portland, OR
