Naturopathic physicians (NDs) are required to graduate from a four-year, residential naturopathic medical school and pass an extensive postdoctoral board examination (NPLEX, or Naturopathic Physicians Licensing Examinations) in order to receive a license to practice medicine.
Naturopathic medicine is dedicated to the study and celebration of nature’s healing powers. It as old as healing itself and as new as today’s medical breakthroughs. It is a dynamic philosophy as well as a profession that recognizes the interconnection and interdependence of all living things. It utilizes the most natural, least invasive and least toxic therapies to treat illness and to promote wellness by viewing the body as an integrated whole.
Naturopathic medicine is defined by principles rather than by methods or modalities. Above all, it honors the body’s innate wisdom to heal.
Karin Taylor Wu is a licensed physician?
Yes, though I hold an active license to practice naturopathic medicine in the state of Oregon (USA), this license to practice medicine is not recognized by the Swedish health authority.
Which modalities do you use?
I combine recommendations for breath work, nutrition, movement, and sleep habits with natural therapies (including but not limited to: BioMat therapy, body centered awareness, craniosacral therapy, essential oils, wildcrafted flower essences, herbal medicines, homeopathy, hydrotherapy, infoceuticals, mindfulness and meditation) into individualized, earth-friendly health plans targeted towards addressing the root cause of pain or dysfunction, revitalizing the body, balancing the mind, and uplifting the spirit.
What kinds of conditions can you help with?
Here is a brief list of the most common things people come seeking help for:
Hormonal imbalances, including fertility/infertility
Laboratory blood work analysis
Master Wu’s teachings have improved my life in profound ways and provided me with an experientially-grounded exploration of Chinese philosophy, symbolism, cosmology and medicine.
It took me a long time to decide which of Master Wu’s calligraphy I would hang in my meditation room. It was a difficult choice. They all have a powerful shamanic feel of primal simplicity, but also a lyrical elegance and sometimes a bit of whimsy.

The practices I have been taught by Master Wu have transformed me physically, emotionally and spiritually, and continue to do so. My life is immeasurably richer, and my understanding of the world enlarged through his wise teaching of this ancient Chinese wisdom.
After you have spent some time with Master Wu, you begin to realize that you are actually not in the presence of an ordinary person. As he shares and teaches, you begin to see a depth of knowledge that is uncommon even in the Qi communities he associates with. If you spend enough time with him, you will come to realize he is a rare and true man of wisdom. You see that his natural way with people, with changing environments and in diverse circumstances comes from his being in deep internal harmony with the Way known as “Tao.”
I was in my 60’s when I began this health journey with Dr. Taylor Wu. It was one of the best decisions and gifts I have given myself. She has provided me with exceptional health care.
I was taken on a deep healing journey when diagnosed with cancer at a young age and have discovered that the best doctors have a rare combination of compassion, wisdom, knowledge and skill. Dr. Karin Taylor Wu embodies all of these – I was incredibly blessed to have her guidance on my healing path. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Dr. Taylor Wu, I would like you to know how much you have helped me. I have not had this much energy and overall sense of well being in a very long time, thanks to you. I am so glad you have come into my life.
Thank you, Karin! You feel like a saving angel for us. Your knowledge and experience has helped us when ordinary medical science has not been able to.
