And as your mother used to remind you, going to bed at the same time each night can help create more restful sleep. If your sleep is not restful or you do not feel refreshed in the morning, you are missing an important component of feeling your best and you may want to make an appointment with one of the physicians at Insights to Health.
What Our Clients are Saying
I’ve seen Dr. Huffman for various health concerns over the course of the last year. She helped me to improve my overall health through diet and specific health-promoting protocols, as well as including some specific herbs and supplements into my daily routine that targeted my specific complaints. She addressed my chief concerns by treating the some underlying determinants of health, like my digestion. My problems have taken a long time to develop and can’t be fixed overnight. She helped me understand that. But I’ve already made great strides under her care and can see improvement that shows me I’m moving in the right direction. I couldn’t ask for a better cheerleader in this process.S.M., 32 year old male, 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.…
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. Brooke has provided excellent naturopathic care for our children. She has been able to look broadly at an illness to figure out how serious it is and to treat it in a way that addresses the cause, even when that cause is not so obvious. She relates with them in a respectful, relaxed way that puts them at ease. They are healthier for her care and we sure appreciate that!C.G., 40 year old female, Portland, OR
Our experience at Insights to Health has been nothing short of life changing. I was referred to Dr. Gil Winkelman by a friend when I started having some major health problems in the fall of 2011. I had started having panic attacks and knew something was very wrong in my body- as this was not the typical anxiety I had previously experienced. Like many other women in my situation, I had seen my primary care provider, only to be told it was postpartum anxiety and that I needed to be put on medication. I didn’t like the brush off, and felt strongly that something was physically out of place, so I pursued Insights to Health and have never been the same. There are many things I love about the treatment offered, but what I most appreciate is how both Dr. Gil and Dr. Christie look at the entire person- mind, body, and spirit- and treat all of those components. When I first started treatment, I was a complete mess. I was grieving the death of my father, dealing with abuse from my childhood…
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 we…
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
When we started neurofeedback at Insights to Health I didn’t know what to expect. My son has autism, and treatments elsewhere had made no improvements for him. Dr. Winkelman started with a map and explained what was going on in Kyle’s brain and how we could use neurofeedback to help him. He also started some other natural treatments. Within a few months we were seeing major changes with communication, speech, and less stimming. Within six months, Kyle was mainstreamed into a normal classroom! I can’t believe how many changes we’ve seen in such a short time. I’m so grateful to Dr. Winkelman and Insights to Health–thank you!M.J., 38 year old female, Portland, OR
I have been receiving Neurofeedback for a few months and am loving the results. I feel more creative, smarter and more organized. I am reading faster and with greater comprehension. Overall, I feel sharper and more on top of my game. Most of all, I am grateful. Thanks, Dr. Gil. I feel extremely confident referring people to you for help, especially those with minor or major brain injuries.M.M., 52 year old female, Portland, OR
