"My passion is getting to the root cause of your health complaints and helping you live a sustainably healthy life." -Dr. Jason Wells
Thank you for visiting my site and learning about what I believe is the medicine of the future. I am excited to offer a unique blend of Naturopathic Medicine, Functional Medicine, and Classical Chinese Medicine in Portland, Oregon.
In Oregon, Naturopathic Physicians are licensed primary care providers, with full pharmaceutical prescribing rights. Additionally, I share my knowledge of how the body is best adapted to function, to start improving your health from your first visit with me.
I completed 6 years of medical training at the National College of Natural Medicine, in Portland, Oregon (the oldest, most renown school of Naturopathic Medical in the United States). I graduated with a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine (ND) and a Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine (MSOM), which entailed a detailed study of oriental medical theory, acupuncture, and classical dietary and herbal formulations.
Additionally, I completed a mentorship and training in Japanese Acupuncture under Bob Quinn, DAOM, LAc.
I continue to expand my medical knowledge through regular continuing education in the following areas:
- Autoimmunity, inflammation
- Digestive tract imbalances, microbiota, and the gut-brain axis
- Men's health
- Ancestral Medicine and Evolutionary Biology
- Japanese acupuncture strategies for chronic pain issues and mental-emotional support
My Post-Doctoral studies have been through some of the following organizations:
- National College of Natural Medicine
- The Institute of Functional Medicine
- American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine
- LDN Research Trust
When I'm not in the clinic or reading through medical research, you'll find me...
Cooking up a storm in the kitchen, hiking and foraging for wild vegetables, fermenting more vegetables than my refrigerator has room for, or singing karaoke with friends and colleagues.
