Welcome to the website of Portland naturopathic doctor, Dr. Holly Zapf, ND, and the Whole Family Health Clinic. We serve the people of Portland, Oregon and surrounding communities.
We specialize in naturopathy, a truly holistic healthcare modality based on a very comprehensive understanding of our patient’s medical history, personality, and lifestyle. This unusually in-depth approach allows the doctor to offer the absolute best medical advice and remedies (Doctor Zapf is able to prescribe all regular prescription medications when needed and we are covered by most insurance programs). We treat particular illnesses and/or disease conditions, but our goal is to help each patient be healthy and happy in every aspect of their lives. And we want that same health and happiness for you, too. If you are part of our Portland community and would like to become a patient and set up an appointment to meet with the doctor, please visit the contact page and follow the instructions there.
Naturopathic and Homeopathic Medicine
But quickly, Naturopathic Medicine (Naturopathy) is a unique and comprehensive approach to improving health and addressing illness. Focusing on prevention and using natural approaches, naturopathic doctors (ND’s) support and stimulate the body’s ability to heal itself. The primary goal of naturopathic treatment is to address the cause of illness, rather than simply treat or suppress symptoms. The patient is seen as a whole person and the naturopath takes the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions into account when making an assessment and developing strategies for recovery of health.
