What Our Clients are Saying
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 sp…
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!
I have been so happy with the care that I have received for my two kids, ages 5 and 1. Dr. Christie Winkelman has given easy, simple steps that we have added to our routines to support their health. My husband was skeptical at first because they were healthy to begin with, but recently told me he was wrong and that he believes in what we are doing because the kids have continued to be healthy and thrive. It feels good to know that I am doing everything I can do support their health and development in these early stages of their lives!N.T., 36 year old female, Anacortes, WA
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…
I finally became tired of thinking about losing the weight I’d gained after my children were born. I was ready to act! Dr. Christie Winkelman guided me through her supportive, effective program, and I can’t thank her enough. I lost 20 pounds in one month and have kept it off for a year and a half, thanks to my new healthy habits and knowledge of my body. Dr. Winkelman also taught me how some of my other health issues –such as low energy and hormonal imbalances–were related to my weight gain and we are addressing those as well. I feel great and am so proud to have reached this long term goal!C.T., 40 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
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. Holmes, 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.
Dr. Noska has been a great support in improving my overall health and balance. In the time I have been working with him I have noticed huge improvements in my overall health and look forward to further advancement. There has been improvement in my energy levels, sleep patterns, and digestive health along with pain management/control. Dr. Noska’s evaluation was extremely thorough. I’ve been impressed with his support and understanding, as well as his knowledge of homeopathic and nutritional options while helping me to incorporate them into my daily lifestyle. I would recommend Dr. Noska to anyone who is looking to improve their ailments and achieve overall balance. A.V., 45 year old female, Portland, OR
