Food Sensitivity Testing with EAV

Identifying which foods and/or environmental factors are causing your symptoms can pose a challenge. At Natural Choices Health Clinic we use a non-invasive test known as EAV (Electro-Acupressure according to Voll) to identify food sensitivities that are negatively affecting health. The procedure, first developed in Germany and widely used throughout Europe, is painless, does not involve any needles or blood samples and requires no preparation other than being well hydrated. Would you like to know more about how EAV works?

PSYCH-K® in Portland

One of the core principles of naturopathic medicine is an understanding that optimal health is not merely a function of the body's systems. The interaction between mind, body and spirit has a profound influence on how we feel and the state of our health. Most of us understand the influence of our conscious thoughts on health but subconscious beliefs, which we are not even aware of, impact us every day. Psych-K® (short for Psychological Kinesiology), is an exciting treatment option that allows us to bring the subconscious beliefs that are negatively impacting our health out into the open to affect a lasting change.

Both Dr. Tufenkian and Dr. Rita Soman are highly skilled Psych-K® facilitators utilizing the process to access the power within you to heal.  Would you like to know more about how Psych-K® works?
