Health is a state of vibrant vitality, abundant energy, and positive affect. It can be learned, cultivated, and practiced by everyone. Dr. Oberg’s approach to health and medicine combines the rigors of science with the wisdom of nature and our bodies. She is passionate about helping people experience a higher level of health and vitality. As such, her clinical practice focuses on preventing, reversing, and taming chronic disease, neuro-regeneration, and anti-aging. Dr. Oberg specializes in nutrition & lifestyle, IV micronutrient therapy, and identifying the underlying causes of disease using advanced testing.

     Dr. Oberg has practiced integrative & natural medicine for nearly 20 years. She has held leadership positions in medical schools, NIH research, public health, and clinical practice. Dr. Oberg received her doctorate in naturopathic medicine in 2003 from Bastyr University, where she also did her residency. She was awarded a prestigious NIH fellowship at the University of Washington where she conducted and published research on health behavior change, nutraceuticals, and health system innovation in pursuit of shifting the focus from disease treatment to health creation.

 

Some highlights of Dr. Oberg’s experience include

  • Medical Director at Bastyr University - California

  • 6 years at Pacific Pearl, an internationally renowned integrative medicine center focused on cardiology.

  • Starting a grant supported natural medicine community clinic for seniors in Edmonds, WA which continues to thrive and serve the community over a decade later.

  • Publishing over 30 peer-reviewed research papers on topics including Echinacea and vitamin D, diabetes, nutrigenomics, integrative nutrition, and the meaning of health & wellness.

  • Leading international health retreats in Italy, Mexico, Canada, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and the British Virgin Islands.

  • 10 years of primary care and integrative endocrinology on a hospital campus in Seattle, WA.

 

     Patients with “undiagnosed” conditions such as fatigue, cognitive decline, and autoimmune conditions often ask “why didn’t other doctors look into my health this thoroughly?” She believes that patients bring as much expertise to the conversation as doctors and as such, she honors a team-based approach to health.

     She enjoys working with people with neuro-degenerative conditions and those hoping to prevent them.  She also works with endocrine and hormone conditions, auto-immune disease, cardiovascular concerns, people ready for lifestyle transformation, families who want to get healthy and stay healthy together, and anyone looking for a preventive, proactive, wellness-oriented doctor.

     When not partnering with patients in healing, Dr. Oberg tries to walk her talk. She stokes her own health racing sailboats, staying active & eating well, playing with her dog, and surrounding herself with inspired people who make her laugh.
