Laughter has been called “the best medicine” and here at Hormones and Holistic Healthcare, we cultivate good humor. Especially when facing difficulties, it is very helpful to find a low-cost and highly effective way to boost endorphins, the “feel-good” neurotransmitters. Here’s a link to the excellent reporting of Claire Oliver:

Dr. Deborah McKay in Hillsdale Neighborhood

Are you looking for a doctor who not only treats the symptoms but also has a true passion to address the whole person, mind-body-spirit naturally? Dr. Deborah McKay is a licensed primary care physician and naturopathic doctor who has been practicing in the Hillsdale area since 2006. She offers professional guidance using conventional medicine, naturopathic, and homeopathic traditions. Her philosophy is to really understand her patient on all levels by listening deeply to each person on every visit. Her focuses include, but not limited to individualized treatment for fatigue, metabolic syndrome, acute illness, mood and cycle imbalance just to name a few. Dr. McKay also specializes in nutrition, blood work analysis, hormone rebalancing and healthy weight loss.

Dr. Deborah McKay spent five years searching for a weight loss program that stands above the rest, providing dramatic and rapid weight loss, yet not falling short of nutrition. She found it: Ultra Lite, which is an Australian program used by about a million people in America, New Zealand, and Australia. Considering her profession of practicing natural healing, she really wanted a program that teaches you to live a healthy lifestyle. She was so impressed with this weight-loss program that she even tried it herself with complete success. It is unlike certain diets which starve your body and do not teach you better lifestyle habits. Ultra Lite provides all the necessary nutrients to ensure good health and well-being. There is no special food to buy and you can even start today with the food you already have in your home. This program actually tones your muscles as you lose weight with no sagging skin or drawn faces to worry about. Even if you do not have weight to lose, Dr. McKay discovered that there are other health benefits to this program that include improved digestion, clearer skin, sharper mind and improved memory.

Dr. McKay also tests and treats for hormone imbalances that are common in both men and women. A few symptoms of hormone imbalance include mood swings, foggy thinking, hot flashes, depression, weight gain, or not being able to lose weight. If you or your significant other have turned into a “grumpy couch potato,” it could be hormone related. With a simple test, Dr. McKay can determine the type of imbalance and provide natural treatment. If hormone imbalances are detected early, you can take the steps to correct them and progression to disease states may be prevented.

Another service Dr. McKay specializes in is Health Panel Blood Analysis. She tests for more than 50 measures of basic health which is more than the usual “comprehensive metabolic panel” at most doctors’ offices.

These are just a few things Dr. McKay treats with naturopathic medicine. This Hillsdale physician and naturopathic doctor will help guide you to live a healthier and happier lifestyle. If you are looking for a doctor who wants to build a connection with her clients in order to treat them naturally, healthily and appropriately, stop into her clinic. She is also an active member of the OANP, Hillsdale Business and Professional Association, the Beaverton Area Chamber of Commerce, and a longtime activist supporting Portland Public Schools. Dr. Deborah McKay is located at 1820 SW Vermont Street, Suite G, in the Wilson Park Building. You can also contact her at 503-549-5550 or visit her website at   Southwest Community Connection
