Dr. Rademacher has an integrative primary care practice joining Naturopathic, Chinese and Western medicine. She provides individualized care that supports her patients’ health care goals with an approach that focuses on removing obstacles that hinder the body’s normal function and supports the body’s physiology and organ systems. “Using a combination of lifestyle modification, nutrition, Western and Chinese herbs, acupuncture and hydrotherapy, long-term health benefits can be achieved. Our foundation is the anatomy and physiology of how our organs, cells and blood are functioning while the energetic aspect of the body supports this foundation. Disharmony in the body is improved when one’s foundation is strong and the body’s energy or qi is flowing smoothly and strongly”. Dr. Rademacher will listen and take adequate time to understand your unique health history and develop a treatment plan that addresses your individual needs.

Dr. Rademacher has over 15 years of experience working as a registered nurse with more than 10 years working as an oncology nurse. She has enjoyed patient centered care and working in the multidisciplinary setting of the hospital yet felt there is much support that can be given through our traditional medicines. This led her to seek out a different style of medicine and led her to the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon where she completed her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine and Master of Science in Oriental Medicine. She continued her studies with a 2-year residency at the An Hao Natural Health Care Clinic in Portland where she had extensive experience in primary care with a special focus in the areas of oncology and chronic illness.
