MEET SANGITA PEDRO, ND
My path to naturopathic medicine began when I was a chronically ill eighteen-year-old. I had grown up on a steady regimen of antibiotics for recurring bouts of bronchitis. I had asthma, multiple allergies and a seriously weakened immune system.
In 1993, a Naturopathic Doctor moved to the tiny town in Oregon where I lived. He gave me acupuncture, herbs and some adrenal support and I got better for the first time in my life.
He didn't even mention antibiotics or steroids and he listened to me patiently for nearly an hour. I was stunned, grateful and inspired.
I decided I wanted to follow in Dr. Schwartz's footsteps and help people get well in the gentlest, most natural way possible. After earning a B.A from Colorado College, I enrolled in the National College of Naturopathic Medicine, graduating in 2005 with an emphasis in Classical Homeopathy and Nutrition.
My private practice began with an emphasis in classical homeopathy. As I began seeing more complex, chronic illness my practice naturally evolved to include the use of modern lab work for diagnosis and other treatment modalities including hydrotherapy, cleansing and fasting, herbal medicine, supplements, and diet and lifestyle modification.
I enjoy treating patients of all ages. My areas of emphasis are women's health; chronic, complex illness including Lyme disease; GI dysfunction and children's behavioral and physical health.
In addition to practicing medicine, I am a certified yoga instructor and offer private, therapeutic yoga instruction as part of my practice.
In my spare time I enjoy cooking and eating delicious food, singing and playing harmonium, doing yoga and meditation, and spending time outdoors with my two dogs, Henry and Sophia.
