Dr. Rose Paisley, ND takes great pride in her profession – one that inspires health through education, positive change, personal growth, and sophisticated medicine rooted in nature cure. Since graduating from National College of Natural Medicine in 2002, Dr. Rose has worked as a family physician with special interests in pediatric oncology and survivorship, endocrinology, women’s health, gastroenterology, and detoxification.
In addition to primary care, Dr. Rose was a “Naturopathic Oncology Provider” at Eastern Regional Medical Center, in Pennsylvania (an integrated cancer hospital). She collaborated with medical oncologists, surgeons and radiation oncologists to achieve the most positive outcomes for cancer patients. She is an expert in the pharmacology and pharmacognocy of drug-herb, drug-nutrient interactions and will work directly with other providers, ensuring a safe and supportive experience. Naturopathic medicine has proven to be a wonderful adjunct to conventional cancer therapies for reducing side effects and improving quality of life during and after a cancer diagnosis.
At Bambu, Dr. Rose relies on current research in conventional and functional diagnostics when addressing acute and chronic conditions. Patients can expect an individualized and unique set of gentle and minimally invasive recommendations that incorporate the healing power of food, herbs, movement, water, touch and homeopathy. When appropriate pharmaceuticals are also utilized. Individually and collectively these naturopathic tools enable her to address many conditions holistically. She strongly believes in working closely with her patients to help them help themselves. She encourages collaboration with family, friends and other health care providers to attain the best possible care and health.
Travel and community health have always been a high priority for Dr. Rose. After receiving her bachelors in pre-med from the University of Hawaii at Manoa she entered naturopathic medical school at Bastyr University in Seattle. While there she embarked on a six-week rural medicine internship in Borneo. Accompanied by a medical team, she traveled through villages along the Baram River, attended a rotation at a Hospital in Marudi, and explored traditional rain forest medicine. Her work was accredited and recognized as three courses – Spirituality and Medicine, Traditional Medicine in the Baram, and Primary Care in Rural Environments.
In practice and life, Rose has a great appreciation of nature and an inspiring social environment. She is thrilled to back in back in Portland among the arts, biking and gardening. Dr. Rose attributes her love of life and infectious laughter to her husband Greg and daughters Lola and Viva.
