Hello and welcome! I am Dr. Lor. I am a Naturopathic Doctor and a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner. As a Naturopathic Doctor and a Traditional Chinese Medical Practitioner, I can ensure you that your visit with me will provide you with clarity as to why you have been experiencing the health challenges that you've been facing. Most importantly, I will recommend an action plan that is designed uniquely for you so that you can get started right away on making the transformation that you need in decreasing the inflammation in your body!
I graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Biology at the University of North Carolina at Asheville. In 2007, my family and I moved to Washington state. I started my medical training and journey at Bastyr University. In 2013, I graduated with my Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine. In 2014, I graduated with my Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. I am also a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine and am certified through the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). During my clinical rotations at Bastyr Center for Natural Health, I worked closely with and was trained by practitioners who specialized in pain relief, fertility support, and mental health diseases.
I am very passionate about electro-stimulation acupuncture and have been trained by Dr. Jeremy Steiner to provide you with the most cutting edge Electro-Acupuncture techniques. Through these techniques, I've been able to provide my clients with the healing that they've been searching for. Our body is very electrical. Doctors order diagnostic tests to measure the electricity in specific parts of our body such as EEG for your brain and EKG for your heart. Every single part of what makes up who we are have an electrical current. When we begin to lose electricity, we begin to develop inflammation and disease. When we work together, I will help to determine what is causing you to have "electricity leaks." To learn more about the top 7 reasons as to why you would have leaks, click here: Top 7 reasons
I also address inflammation/disease by using dental acupuncture. Each tooth is related to specific acupuncture channels and organs. When you have issues with your teeth, you lose electricity and you begin to develop inflammation/diseases that are associated with that tooth (channel, organ, function, emotions, etc...). Being able to identify which tooth or teeth is causing you to have electricity leaks are going to be crucial. Once identified, I will use electro-stimulation acupuncture to fill up the affected channels/organs. There are 4 dental issues that causes some of the most electricity leaks and they are mercury (a priority to address), root canals, wisdom teeth extractions, and impacted teeth. If you have one or a combination of these, then the leaks must be addressed or you'll never truly heal.
Naturopathic & East Asian Medicines have very fundamental and natural approaches that can help with inflammation. I specialize in addressing inflammation in women who are 35-70 years old and are searching for limitless healing. Because of my credentials, I am uniquely able to help my clients discover obstacles or hidden blockages to their healing as well as to restore function and reduce pain by addressing deficiencies in their body. My goal is to get my clients to a stage of their life where they are no longer planning their daily activities around their pain. There are even circumstances where my clients have been able to avoid surgery. It's important to emphasize that clients who are invested in their health and make the time to take care of themselves, are the ones who see the most changes.
Most chronic illnesses are preventable. About 75% of all health care spending in the United States is for treatment of preventable chronic illnesses. When working closely with me, it's about achieving health and wellness with the best care. I enjoy encouraging your innate self healing process through the use of natural recommendations. What we choose to do on a daily basis will either contribute to or take away from our health and wellness. I believe that education is such an important aspect of improving one's health. There's no "dumb" question when you are in the office with me. The more we can understand about what's going on, the more focused we can be with our action plan, the sooner you will see results.
I am going to be adding facial rejuvenation techniques like microneedling to my practice. I have been trained by both Dr. Ping Zhang and Josh Nerenberg, LAc, Both practitioners have helped thousands of people not only regain youthful, younger looking skin but also helped others regain their self-confidence. This will be a great addition because I want others to know that you can look younger NATURALLY. The combination of therapies used will give you 3-5 years of results. Microneedling is at the forefront of providing you with younger and healthier skin. It's a technique that is within a licensed acupuncturists scope of practice. I hope you are as excited as I am with these new services!
I have 6 children and 2 family dogs (Champ and Luna). When I'm not working, I am spending time with my family at museums, libraries, parks, lakes or at event gatherings. More recently, I've been in love with cake baking and decorating. I moved to North Carolina, with my parents, when I was a teen and then moved to Washington for medical school. After graduating from Bastyr University, I opened a clinic in Washington to serve my local community there. After several years, I decided to close it and move my practice to North Carolina to provide my services to the community here. My children enjoy being with the family here and I am excited to be back.
Our life and body are so complex. As a Naturopathic doctor and a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine, my position as a healthcare professional is unique. I often blend these two types of medicines to provide you with the best outcome possible. I believe that there are so many parts that we need to look at when we are wanting to improve inflammation. There are factors that can be altered while there are some that can't be. Our genetics are set and were set when they were passed down to us from our parents. What we can focus on are the factors that can be changed. If you're ready to transform your body and health so that you can achieve limitless healing, then you've come to the right place!
