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.

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 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.

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.

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!

Pros: practitioners who really listen, customized care & treatment

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.

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.

My previous encounters with doctors and homeopaths have been infrequent, but always haphazard: prescriptions and remedies seem random and there's never enough follow-up to ensure that I am on the right path. So, Dr. Christie Winkelman is a welcome change: she has provided the coaching I needed to follow through with an effective treatment plan. She explained how she would investigate potential diagnosis, what diets would help, how remedies worked, when I should check-in. And most importantly, she did check-in and we did tweak the plan. This assurance motivated me to continue recommended remedies and my condition has greatly improved. I was very impressed with her positive diet recommendations: they focused on healing foods that I should eat rather than a list of forbidden foods. Denial just fires my desire, so this approach really worked for me.

My first experience at Insights to Health was a huge eye opener. I had never seen a natural pathic doctor before. I have gone to multiple physicians trying to find the cause and the cure to my symptoms for years. At every doctors office my experience was the same, try this prescription, we THINK it might be this, follow up in a month, if that didn?t work we will try something else. This was not my experience with Dr. Martin. She did a full consultation with me and really took her time to listen and explain everything. For the first time I was heard and had a doctor that got to the route of what was going on with my body. After the diagnosis I was put on a healing plan. I followed her instructions; changed my diet and started taking some supplements. Within a week I noticed a huge difference and so did my family. Thanks to her my acne is going away, I have no more stomach problems and I am managing my stress better. I wish I had a doctor like this 10 years ago. Thank you!

I had the pleasure of being one of Dr. Fox 's patient for over a year. Her warmth, understanding, and competence was so supportive and powerful. Many doctors don't take the time to listen to their patients. Dr. Fox not only listened, but had insights into my health that I've never heard before. She is not like other doctors or even other naturopaths. She helped me reach a higher level of health, awareness about myself, and communication. There is no greater gift than what she has done for me. I know she will give these and other gifts to all of her patients.

I had no idea was to expect from an accu-pressure session. Every time I met Dr. Fox for an appointment I was blown away by the outcome.

I am a high functioning paraplegic with a lot of mobility; I was using braces and crutches to get around. Dr. Fox suggested that I try accupressure to help increase the circulation in my legs. My husband referred to the treatments as voodoo - however, I went in with more of an open mind. The first session, I actually felt an energy circuit created from where her right hand touched my body, through my circulatory system, and out through her left hand. After the session, Dr. Fox and I spoke about what I had experienced. There was an immediate understanding about the mind body connection; but I also felt a connection with her understanding of this Eastern medicinal technique.

I continued with traditional physical therapy - but noticed that I was now making huge strides with my work on my legs after each accupressure session. Within a week or so after my first appointment, I was able to remove the leg braces and walk with the aid of the crutches alone. I was sure it was a coincidence.

However after two more sessions I was walking with only the assistance of a quad cane. This was no longer a coincidence - my body was really experiencing increaed healing.

There is one other outcome of a session that I still blush about. I am not sure what chakra was being affected but I began greeting my husband as he came in the house each night. I would assualt his lips in a way that neither of us had felt since our early days of dating. This was no longer voodoo for either of us.

Though my paralysis, I have learned that traditional Western medicine alone isn't always the best approach for curing the physical body - there is a strong connection between the mind and body. A connection that deserves a further look.

I've seen Dr. Martin several times with regard to chronic health issues I've had for many years now. She is able to give me advice and guidance that is geared towards my own personal situation. She is sensitive to where I am at currently in my life and is able to adjust the treatment accordingly. I can already see improvements with my health... Dr. Martin also has such a calming presence -- she always puts me at ease. I *definitely* recommend her!

For the most part, I am a healthy person, who takes care of myself. I have discovered that ,as in most professions, even doctors can lose their zest for their work and I didn't always get the best advice or care.
I was recently referred to Dr Christy Winkelman, ND and have finally found in her, a doctor who is passionate about patient care! I think of her as my "health detective" because she takes the time to listen to me, asks questions and does research, in order to resolve my health concerns.
The clinic is new, has a great location & lots of free parking. It has a welcoming atmosphere and a hot beverage bar for patients. Very upscale!

I saw 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.

Gil 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!
