What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Dr. Venessa Madrigal
Dr. Venessa Madrigal is a licensed Naturopathic Physician who graduated from National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM) in Portland, Oregon. She currently holds an active license in Washington. Her medical practice focuses on integrative primary care with particular interests in mental & emotional health, environmental illnesses (i.e. mold illness, tick-borne illnesses, multiple chemical sensitivities) and endocrinology-related conditions, such as andropause/ menopause, PMS, PCOS, infertility/pre-conception planning, thyroid dysfunction, and transgender/gender-affirming healthcare.
Since childhood, Dr. Madrigal had an interest in the sciences and she combined that interest with her love of playing sports to learn about the functioning of the human body. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology with a minor in Spanish from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. After college, she worked as a physical therapist aide for 5 years, as well as a personal trainer, group exercise instructor, and fitness director, before enrolling in the naturopathic medicine program at NCNM (now called National University of Natural Medicine).
Dr. Madrigal recognizes that each person is unique and multi-faceted, as are health conditions. She strives to combine modern medicine with traditional healing in an effort to provide the best individualized treatment for each person. Her interest in traditional healing began after college when she spent a week in the Peruvian Amazon. While there, she visited a medicinal garden deep within the jungle. Guided by an apprentice to a shaman that day, she learned of healing effects of various plants.
Inspired by the teachings from the earth by the native people, Dr. Madrigal was inspired to continue to learn more about traditional healing. As a first generation Mexican-American, she had lost touch with the knowledge of her native Aztec ancestry. During her first year at NCNM, she read a book on Aztec medicine and wrote a paper for her Naturopathic History class on how Aztec medicine and naturopathic medicine were similar. From her trip to the Amazon, teachings from the Aztecs, and her own self-healing experiences, she became in awe of the healing power of nature and of the human body.
Dr. Madrigal looks forward to helping to guide you and your loved ones on your own healing journeys.
