Health should be your number one priority because staying healthy is a prerequisite for whatever you want to achieve in your life.

I'm an Oregon board-certified naturopathic doctor, a primary care physician, specializing in natural medicine.

I believe that illness is the body’s way of manifesting internal imbalance. The focus of my treatment is to identify and treat the underlining cause, rather than just treating symptoms. I use a unique integrated approach, combining the science of western medicine with the healing arts of natural medicine. My approach is to minimize the use of pharmaceutical drugs as much as possible and promote the body’s innate self-healing ability. Areas of my specialty include skin conditions, allergies, diabetes, hypertension, women's health, hormonal imbalance, thyroid,  weight loss, acute and chronic pains, mood disorders. I also offer health check up and women's annual exam.


Start your positive spiral today!
Vibrant health pushes you towards the positive spiral. If you are healthy, you become active. Being active keeps you young. You are happier and your life becomes fun and exciting. If your life is fun, you will look forward to your future, which further allows you to stay active, young and healthy.
Be proactive. Preventative measures that you take today will save you a lot of money in the long run by keeping you out of the hospital and away from pharmaceutical drugs. Indeed,health is the new wealth. Take your next step towards vibrant health!

Eczema? Atopic Dermatitis?


Do you have eczema? Or are you diagnosed with atopic dermatitis?  Are you using   hydrocortisone or some corticosteroid cream prescribed by your doctor?  Corticosteroid is not a cure.  It only palliates the symptoms and possibly worsens it over time. I had eczema since childhood.  As with many eczema patients I had to use corticosteroid cream for long time and ended up with eczema all over my body. Through natural treatments I am finally free from eczema that I suffered for nearly 30 years. For appointments, call 503.643.1024 or email info@drchikakoharper.com.
アトピー性皮膚炎の方、あるいは湿疹でステロイド剤を常用していらっしゃる方へ。ステロイド剤では治りません。かゆみや赤みは身体の自己治癒の反応です。ステロイド剤はその自己治癒機能を止めて症状を抑え込んでしまうので、根治につながらないどころか、逆に悪化させ難治化させてしまいます。私自身もアトピー性皮膚炎と診断され、長期のステロイド剤の使用で、湿疹が全身へ広がった挙げ句「一生治らない」と皮膚科医から宣言されました。ステロイド剤の使用を止め自然療法を学び、今では30年以上苦しんだアトピー性皮膚炎が完治しています。お問い合わせは、電話:503.433.3314(直通)あるいはEmail:info@drchikakoharper.com、スカイプでの相談も受け付けております。

What is Naturopathic Medicine


About Naturopathic Medicine 
The past 30 years has seen an extraordinary increase in patients’ demand for safe, effective and cost-effective natural healthcare. Naturopathic medicine has emerged as the health care profession best suited to meet this demand. It now offers safe, effective natural therapies as a vital part of the health care systems of North America in the twenty-first century.
Naturopathic physicians are trained in the art and science of natural healthcare at accredited medical colleges. Integrative partnerships between conventional medical doctors and licensed NDs are becoming more available. This cooperation makes more effective therapies available to patients. It increases patient satisfaction in their relationships with their care providers. More people are recovering their health by adding naturopathic medicine to their health care options.
Naturopathic medicine is a system of medicine that assists in the restoration of health by following a set of specific rules. A basic assumption is that nature is orderly, and this orderliness is designed to result in ongoing life and well being. This dependable orderliness is believed to be guided by a kind of inner wisdom that everyone has. This inner wisdom can be assisted to return a person to their best balance by naturopathic treatments.  (source: AANMC)
About Naturopathic Education 
A licensed naturopathic physician (N.D.) attends a four-year graduate-level naturopathic medical school and is educated in all of the same basic sciences as an M.D., but also studies holistic and nontoxic approaches to therapy with a strong emphasis on disease prevention and optimizing wellness. In addition to a standard medical curriculum, the naturopathic physician is required to complete four years of training in clinical nutrition, homeopathy, botanical medicine, psychology, and counseling (to encourage people to make lifestyle changes in support of their personal health). A naturopathic physician takes rigorous professional board exams so that he or she may be licensed by a state or jurisdiction as a primary care general practice physician. (source: AANMC)
