Dr. Rebecca Krisko, ND
Dr. Krisko is grateful to be practicing Naturopathic medicine and loves to help her patients overcome their health challenges to lead fuller lives through natural medicine. Specializing in Naturopathic Pediatric Care, PMS, PCOS, Allergies and many other conditions, Dr. Krisko has the experience to discover the causes of your health challenges and apply the most effective treatments.
Many of Dr. Rebecca Krisko’s patients feel like they have exhausted their options. They’ve gone to multiple doctors who can’t figure out what is wrong, or taken medications that don’t work or provide long-term solutions. Sometimes they’ve reached dead ends attempting to self-diagnose and treat themselves through countless internet searches and dietary experiments.
During your initial visit, Dr. Krisko will perform a physical exam, which may include labs and / or imaging if necessary to uncover any unseen contributors impacting your health. Because physical health is tied to mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing, she provides plenty of time to learn about your health history as well as your lifestyle, habits, stressors and symptoms.
Dr. Rebecca Krisko graduated in 2003 from the National College of Natural Medicine and completed a private 2 ½ year residency in January 2008. She received special training in homeopathy, biotherapeutic drainage, counseling, and several forms of moving meditation including Ashtanga Yoga. She was the owner of Bambú Clinic in downtown Portland for 12 years and now maintains a private practice in general family medicine that focuses on re-establishing balance and function of all body systems.
Dr. Krisko relies on the six principles of naturopathic medicine for guidance in case management and believes that healing happens when patients discover and doctors treat the underlying cause of the presenting symptoms. Her protocols engage and support the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Dr. Krisko also has a special interest in supporting patients with hormonal imbalances, diabetes, and autoimmune disease. She also specializes in the treatment of children, especially those with ADHD and autism.
Dr. Krisko believes that a strong doctor-patient relationship is crucial to overcoming chronic illness. She understands that true health exists on all levels, physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual, and dedicates herself sincerely to supporting her patients as they explore and improve all aspects of their lives.
