At Terrain Wellness, our treatment philosophy follows naturopathic and Chinese Medicine acupuncture principles; this means that our doctors address patients’ acute medical concerns while also alleviating the deeper emotional and spiritual elements of illness.

We address these specific conditions while also alleviating the deeper emotional and spiritual stress components of why we are more prone to illness in the first place. We prefer natural medicine and spend longer with our patients because taking extra time leads to better quality service. Being a naturopath in Portland means defining ‘wellness’ as being healthy physically, emotionally and spiritually. We invite everyone in Portland, Oregon to share in our vision.

IV Therapy in Portland, Oregon
Terrain Wellness proudly offers IV Therapy (Intravenous Nutritional Therapy) for established patients at our Portland, Oregon naturopathic medical clinic. Our doctors prescribe IV Therapy on a case-by-case basis after reviewing relevant health information with the patient.
Providing excellent medical care (including IV Therapy) that is custom-tailored for you and your nutritional needs means that we only offer IV as a treatment modality to patients when it is deemed medically beneficial. Prior to prescribing IV Nutritional Therapy, our doctors will review the patient’s current/past medications and allergies, screen for health conditions which may contraindicate IV Therapy and review lab tests as appropriate.
Our physicians’ vetting process with patients helps insure that our IV Nutrition, glutathione pushes, B-Complex, B-12 injections, methyl cobalamine (an activated form for patients with MTHFR genetic variants) and many other minerals are indicated for your health conditions and relevant to your specific wellness goals. Rather than having off-the-shelf products like the well-known Meyer’s Cocktail (a common IV for Cold & Flu recovery), we customize our IV treatments specifically to you.
At Terrain Wellness, our IV Therapy is administered by a Registered Nurse or physician. While some Naturopath Portland competitors have medical assistants administer their IV in order to reduce costs, we chose to have an RN or doctor experienced in IV because we want our patients to have the best possible quality and experience with us.
