Work with Me
Dr. Erika Siegel, ND, LAc,
founder of Nourish Me, is a naturopathic doctor, acupuncturist, mom, and health educator. She offers whole-bodied health care and inspiration to thrive.
Being a physician is more than a job or a career; it is the fabric of who I am: a person continuously humbled by the mystery of the human body, the webs we weave together, and this beautiful planet we share. My consistent curiosity in the healing arts is fueled by my desire to comfort suffering, and to help people to feel harmony within themselves so they can live into the fullness of their being. We have one life, and I know that we deserve to feel as well as possible, do good work, and leave this place better than we found it. My patients, family, community, and the magical Northwest inspire me into action and fill my heart, allowing me to show up whole-heartedly to the healer’s path.
In 1998 I began my doctoral studies in both Western and Eastern Medicine at the National University of Naturopathic Medicine, and I now practice a lively marriage of the two modalities. I am a life-long learner, “a seeker,” and I continuously hone my skills and expand my toolkit to include knowledge and therapies from around the globe -- from ancient practices to modern conventional medicine. To me, anything that supports wellness and relieves suffering can be considered therapeutic, and I stay open to it all. And I have learned that the most simple practices, like foundational self-care, are perhaps the most profound.
I strongly believe that the body has an inherent ability, and desire, to heal. My goal is to facilitate that process by first helping you discover the obstacles to your healing. I want to hear your story; it’s as important as any medical test, and I listen with a compassionate ear. When I am with you, I strive to give you 100% of my attention and work from my heart, as I believe there is no other way to practice medicine.
I work alongside my patients, encouraging you to take an active role in your health. I do not practice “green” allopathic medicine (meaning I do not just hand you an herbal supplement to replace a pharmaceutical); instead I ask a lot of questions and do a thorough investigation (which may include lab testing and imaging) in our pursuit of finding the root cause of imbalance or illness. My treatment plans may require some hard work on your end, but if you are not up for that right now, I will support you where you are in this moment.
Yes, I can just treat symptoms, especially to give you short-term relief, but my ultimate goal is to get you to a deeper state of healing and balance which also includes empowering you to live your authentic self. I understand and respect that you are an individual and your health plan will be unique to you in this time. I primarily utilize acupuncture, nutrition education, herbal medicine, selective supplementation, soft tissue work, and lifestyle counseling. My spa-like “table sessions” include both acupressure massage and acupuncture needling and are designed to be deeply relaxing and even transformative. I want to help you feel the profound ease and harmony that is possible in your body.
Maintaining the balance of mind, body, and spirit is the foundation of my philosophy. Prevention is the cornerstone of my naturopathic approach, and I am happy to evaluate all areas of your health and make suggestions for optimization, even in the absence of symptoms.
Combining the tools and wisdom from East and West that I learned in medical school and honed in clinical experience, I offer truly holistic health care. I love this work and consider it an honor and privilege to be invited into the lives of my patients.
The Nourish Me Clinic is located on a tree-filled property in SW Portland, about 10 minutes from downtown. I see patients at Wieden and Kennedy (employees only) on Wednesdays; other days I will be at the Nourish Me Clinic with a variety of treatment times available.
