Dr. Lewis is a native Oregonian who grew up playing competitive team sports and individual outdoor sports. This love for activity was one of the earliest seeds initiating her deep interest in health and wellness.
Dr. Lewis aims to understand each individual’s disease process and its causes. This process is essential to address each individual’s physical structure, biochemical makeup (blood lipids, glucose, liver enzymes, etc.), environmental exposure, and emotional elements.
Although treatments are typically aimed at the underlying cause of the illness, Dr. Lewis often recommends short-term treatments to alleviate severe or uncomfortable symptoms.
Her ultimate goal is to provide a healing environment where she is a facilitator, cheerleader, and teacher. This empowers patients with the tools to take an active role in their health.
