Naturopathic Medicine

Helping you feel

Together, we have a combined 40+ years experience helping people find their way towards better health.

What is naturopathic medicine?

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.
