Meet Dr. Jennifer Trigg
A Doctor with Heart
I have always had a passion for science, as well as compassion for the many struggles our society faces, whether they be social, environmental, etc. My study of health sciences helped me realize that healing from within was a way I could affect change in the world around me. This eventually led me to my path of becoming a doctor, and it is now an honor to help others on their own healing journeys.
As with any journey, there can be difficult moments, but I have also learned that there can be magic and excitement in finding a new way of being! I believe addressing the mind, body, and spirit all have their place in medicine. Additionally, using Food as Medicine was the first step on my path to wellness. This inspired my focus on gastrointestinal health in medical school, via advanced courses and clinic shifts dedicated to gastrointestinal conditions.
I earned my medical degree from the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon and have my Bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience from the University of Colorado, Boulder. My background in neuroscience has fueled my understanding of the importance of nervous system regulation and the Gut-Brain connection. My goal is to help others achieve whole person wellness by finding and addressing the root cause of disease with natural approaches.
I grew up in Denver, Colorado and currently live in Portland, although I still love spending time in the mountains. In my free time, I enjoy gardening, yin yoga, art, and meditation. I have completed training in several bodywork modalities, and I am thrilled to offer Craniosacral Therapy. I have additionally received training in shamanic healing. To me, this work is about self-discovery and self-love.
