Welcome Dr. Heather Pendell, Naturopathic physician to Attunement Wellness!! We are so excited for her to join our sweet little clinic!
Dr. Heather is a naturopathic physician focusing on pain management and women’s health. Over the last 4 years she has been working at a busy naturopathic primary care office where she honed her skills in managing pain with natural treatment options and optimizing women’s hormones. She also obtained extensive experience in pharmaceutical management of a multitude of conditions including hypertension, hypothyroid, diabetes, depression, and anxiety. She has the unique ability to utilize pharmaceuticals
when needed, and she always has a plan to get you off the pill!
Dr. Heather was awarded her Bachelor Degree in science from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. During her undergraduate studies, she worked with several naturopathic physicians as teachers and mentors, which sparked her interest for natural medicine. She developed a passion for this style of medicine, and began pursuing a career in helping others improve health through nutrition, botanical herbs and physical medicine. She then completed a four-year graduate medical degree at National
University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon. During her clinical years, Dr. Heather completed a one-year internship in naturopathic/integrative cardiovascular and pulmonary medicine, as well as a six-month internship in women’s medicine. She also completed a one-year internship in Portland community clinics focusing on the health of pediatrics, at risk youth and addiction issues.

I’ve been taking part in #chinesemedicine for over 6 months, #chineseteas specifically to my diet have been amazing for me! I have not graduated into bulk teas. The ##fareast has been calling my name for many years, in all aspects of my life! I have now started to listen to that call. The herbs and acupuncture, along with meditation has been a few of the tools that I have utilized to help better understand myself and to become to a sense of clarity and peace!
Very last day at OCOM was on Saturday. My three year journey through medical school has finally come to an end.
So very much has happened outside of school duing the last three years that it almost seems like I have come to the end of this life and I am about to be reincarnated.
I am so proud of everyone who is graduating with me today. Despite all our tears, frustrations, forgotten assignments, children to care for, jobs to work at, divorces and deaths of loved ones while in the program - we did it. This will probably be one the most difficult chapters in our lives, but we did it. Triumphant over all tribulations.
I am beyond grateful to all of my wonderful teachers and awesome classmates who made my school experience really just like hanging out with family every day.
Congratulations, OCOM class of 2018!

Optimism, visualization, and attitude are key components of health. But why? Check out my blog (https://www.acuspotpdx.com/blog/bps) about a well-researched, quick, and easy writing exercise called the Best Possible Self that improved people’s affect, increased optimism, and reduced pain (short- and long-term)!
In one study, participants even got sick less often than the control group who didn’t do the writing prompt!
Try it out and let me know what your experience was like in the comments below! I’m trying to figure out if/how to incorporate this into clinical practice and would love your thoughts and feedback. 🙌🏽⭐️

I am finally an intern starting this Fall!!! ............................................………..........................................................................[My shifts will be @ OCOM Hollywood (NE Portland), Monday & Thursday Mornings; and Tuesday Afternoons.

The life we touch in goodness will touch the life of another, and then in turn another, until who knows how far the tendrils will reach or in what distant place our touch will be felt. - a paraphrase of a Frederick Buechner quote 💜
I’m beyond grateful for my life and the ways I get to spend my time. It isn’t easy to make all the parts a whole when planning these community events. It takes a gaggle of awesome beings, lots of time and administration, vision and collaboration over sometimes months and months. Right, Mike? @funtobemp AND IT IS THE MOST JOY-FILLED, most rewarding, most inspiring endeavor. These pop-ups were divinely placed. The idea literally popped up at a time I needed you all the most. Having events to plan that bring people together, having souls to nurture and a community to hug and lean on this year was medicine for MY soul. So THANK YOU. There will be more events. For now. Please save September 13. @kevinparismusic is coming back to PTown. And we love us some Kevin Paris. 🙏🏼 Thank you for being the kind, warm, giving humans that you are. I love you. ✌️ *only let me tag a handful 😘 @ocompdx @dj_hyfi @laurenbie @lululemon @stellaskitchenco @portlandjuiceco @brilliant_health @namasteonwilliams @yogapearl @enso.float @iamsouljour @portlandspirit @stokequotes @brewdrkombucha @nossafamiliacoffee @smithteamaker

It has definitely been a struggle coming to/doing school after everything that has been going on, but I am glad to report that I am only 11 weeks away from graduating!
Not doctor yet, as the button states, but that is just around the corner as well.
