I have never had a doctor this caring before. I have never had a doctor that would
allow well over an hour listening intently to all my ailments.
To have a doctor who wants to treat me as a unique individual is rare, in my opinion.
I am a mother of four. Naturally, I was too busy taking care of my family and naturally
neglected yours truly, sigh.
I went to see Dr. Huffman with the last attempt to find relief for my symptoms. I have
to confess I was a tad skeptical and at the same time curious about this naturopathic
approach. After an hour or so of talking(mostly me talking), we agreed on a treatment
plan. (You must commit and follow the instructions in order for it to work!) Within a
week and much to my pleasant surprise, I felt better. Oh, and another surprise-
Dr. Huffman called to see how I'm feeling. Jolly nice.
Although this is a pricey approach, the outcome is priceless. It is a kindler and
gentler approach to a long-term healthier you.
Mother of Four Teenage Daughters.
"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."
A True Partner in Health and Wellness – 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
Insights to Health Lives up to Its Name – After suffering a lifetime of chronic allergies and having exhausted all of the conventional routes, I turned to Dr. Christie Winkleman, at Insights to Health, in the fall of 2009.
Dr. Winkleman was very generous with her time and attention to me and soon got me on a course of action that involved many different modalities such as dietary modification, homeopathy, supplements and self-care treatments.
I was amazed at how fast I responded to the treatment. In fact, it exceeded my expectations. I thought that going the "natural route" would be long, arduous, self-sacrificing and that I would have to be very patient before I would notice a change. Within the first month, so many my symptoms were resolved and through this process over the next couple of months, I had nothing short of a total revelation about my health and how everything is interrelated. Now that I feel the way I do now (with abundant energy, no crippling fatigue and lethargy, and no more constant coughing over post-nasal drip) I can't believe that I spent so much of my life in such poor health. I am completely transformed. Most importantly, I have been doing great this spring - with hardly any allergy symptoms.
Insights to Health lives up to its name. This has been a very enlightening journey for me as I have finally gotten to the root of my health problems under Dr. Winkelman's care. I feel that my time and energy has been very well spent coming to Dr. Winkelman. She has provided me with so much education and direction and encouragement and thanks to her, I can keep up with my busy life instead of spending my days in an allergy-induced fog.
This past winter, I brought in my children for treatment, and I must add that Dr. Winkleman's care was extremely effective. Instead of the runny nose that usually lasts all winter, my four-year old's cold was gone within the week. I was also very impressed with Dr. Winkelman when she called to check in and see how my kids were doing after their visit.
Another courtesy I would like to mention is that Insights to Health will handle billing insurance on their patient's behalf and my provider has covered all of my visits and labwork.
Committment to Health – I have been so happy with the care that I have recieved for my two kids, ages 5 and 1. Dr. Christie Winkleman has given easy, simple steps that we have added to our routines to suport their health. My husband was skeptical at first because they were helathy 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 thier lives.
I Feel Brighter and Smarter with Neurofeedback – 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.
Best Place and Doctor in Portland, Oregon to Get Healthy – 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 me 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 traditional medicine 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. Gil Winkelman is not like going to any other Doctor you have ever been to and to just give Dr. Gil Winkelman a glowing recommendation is an understatement, as Dr. Gil Winkelman is a wonderful Naturopathic Doctor and has become a wonderful friend as well.
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. Gil Winkelman does.
Finally, EFFECTIVE healthcare! – After consulting my primary care physician several times about the same health issues and not finding solutions, I was frustrated. I decided to see a naturopath, despite the fact that my insurance wouldn't help to defray the cost - and it has REALLY paid off! I have worked with Dr. Christie Winkelman for about six months (on a schedule I could afford), and she put together a customized treatment plan for me each time I saw her. The changes in diet and lifestyle that she has recommended have yielded great results - I'm feeling better and my body is behaving as it should. Dr. Winkelman's attentive, considered approach has been terrific!
Outstanding Service – I had an urgent unexpected surgery without much time to prepare. I had 29 staples removed and was I was healing slowly while on antibiotics and pain medication. My energy level was quite low. Dr. Fox designed a plan for me and sent me what I call a "care package" to help me heal. It was simple to follow the directions and I began taking the supplements immediately. Within a week I was weening myself off the pain medications and healing much quicker. I am very grateful for Dr. Fox and her passion for "Natural Medicine" to help others. I highly recommend visiting Dr. Fox for personalized support and care.
brilliant naturopathic doctor!! – I have been lucky enough to be a patient of Dr. Juniper Martin's for a few years now---even before she began her practice at Insights to Health. I think she is a remarkable physician. She is smart, practical and realistic. I needed a naturopath who understands that making dietary changes or taking ANYTHING regularly is challenging for some of us. The fact that she can explain WHY something is effective and then talk about the research behind it has made it easier for me to stick to the routines she's prescribed, both for myself and my boy. I would recommend her to anyone.
