Supporting nature's desire to keep you happy and vital.

Our holistic health crew at Root just got even better.

I’m excited to share that we have enriched our holistic health team at Root with the addition of Dr. Laura Wollman, ND!  Laura approaches medicine with a wise and sensible balance between nature and science.  She is my go-to for naturopathic care, and I can vouch for her intelligence, sensibility, vast knowledge base, wit, positivity, and care toward her clients.  If you’re looking for a naturopath or would like to learn more, I highly recommend scheduling a consult or appointment with her by calling 503-288-7668.  For more about Dr. Wollman, please read her bio below.  

Dr. Wollman started expressing her interest in natural health and healing by 9 years of age when she started reading books on herbal medicine and home remedies.  Her fascination with the human body and how to live the healthiest life possible drew her to Naturopathic medicine and a lifelong quest for health.  Dr. Wollman believes that it is a privilege to be able to serve others in the sacred act of being a physician.  In fulfilling her role as a guide and partner in each patient’s health journey, Dr. Wollman takes a thoughtful and honest approach focused on listening to patients and endeavoring to understand their unique needs.   Dr. Wollman utilizes a wide range of treatments including herbal medicine, nutrition, homeopathy, IV therapy, lifestyle counseling, supplementation therapy, hydrotherapy, and pharmaceuticals when indicated.  The tenets of Naturopathic medicine that she most appreciates are prevention, treating the cause of disease, and treating the whole person.  Early on in her medical training one of her mentors said “Don’t just treat what the patient in front of you has, treat them for what they will have in 30 years.”  This statement had a profound effect on Dr. Wollman as she was learning what true disease prevention meant and she always keeps this principle in mind when working with individuals.

Dr. Wollman graduated with honors from John Brown University with a Bachelor of Science in psychology and then received her Doctorate In Naturopathic Medicine from the National College of Natural Medicine.  Her training affirmed her intuition on the profound connection between our mental and emotional state and physical health.  Always keeping a whole body approach in mind, Dr. Wollman has had specialized training in GI disorders, autoimmune diseases, and thyroid conditions.  During medical school Dr. Wollman did coursework to receive a certificate in natural childbirth and was selected for a year-long natural childbirth internship which focused on pregnancy, women’s health, and pediatrics.  She was also selected for a specialized 6-month internship in cardiology and endocrinology.

Dr. Wollman enjoys spending her free time with her husband and baby boy.  She loves travelling and experiencing new cultures, experimenting with healthy gluten free recipes in the kitchen, and making it a point to get out into nature every day.
