"As a Naturopathic Doctor some of my areas of focus are: Holistic Skin Care, Functional Nutrition, Digestive Health, Women's Health and Anxiety disorders."
What to expect during a Naturopathic appointment?
During the doctor’s virtual or in-person visit Dr. Jaqueline Brockert will collect information about your overall health history, including a list of medications and/or supplements, acute or chronic symptoms, allergies, past surgeries and hospitalizations, nutritional status, and stress levels. After a careful review from the patient’s health information, including laboratory and imaging exams when needed, Dr. Brockert will design a personalized plan to treat the underlying causes of your health concerns.
Dr. Brockert will start your treatment using the least invasive yet most effective methods available. When possible, Dr. Brockert starts the treatment with lifestyle and nutritional recommendations instead of pharmaceuticals. However, every individual is different and for some patients the use of pharmaceuticals will be necessary. Either way, Dr. Brockert will implement an integrative treatment plan where the use of less invasive methods of care can be used for the long-term goal.
At Peach skin Portland Healthcare all patients will receive special focus on their nutritional state of health and digestive system. What you eat and what you are absorbing from food could potentially create or resolve overall inflammation and exacerbate mental health conditions. During the appointment Dr. Brockert may suggest diet and lifestyle changes. If necessary, she will recommend laboratory exams to investigate your symptoms, such as but not limited to, food allergy and food sensitivity testing. Additionally, Dr. Brockert will always attempt to remove potential sources of body inflammation, as they are major sources of pathological conditions.
After careful review of symptoms and laboratory studies, nutritional supplementation may be recommended if necessary; however, Dr. Brockert's preference is to focus on nutrition and lifestyle factors first. It is Dr. Jaqueline Brockert's belief that your overall health including your mental health symptoms may be an expression of the inflammation and contamination inside of your body. If your body is accumulating toxins (pesticides, preservatives, flavoring agents, petrochemical products, heavy metals, sugar…) and due to poor digestion, or hormonal imbalance, it is not able to properly detox all these environmental insults, your symptoms may be expressing the accumulation of these problems or deficiencies with flares.
The right treatment will help the whole body and mind heal itself. For some chronic conditions it may take a while, and we may not have the cure for all disorders; however, for most people, the right treatment may help to alleviate and to decrease the frequency of symptoms and flares, even for incurable chronic conditions. Additionally, when referrals are needed Dr. Brockert will make sure to refer you to the right specialist.

I will use all my tools, including nutrition, botanicals, lifestyle counseling, mental health counseling, and if needed, pharmaceuticals to active your best results." Dr. Brockert
