“I partner with Beth for both acupuncture treatment and Holistic Pelvic Care. Beth has provided me with tremendous support in healing pelvic trauma and post traumatic stress. Her intuitive and compassionate treatments helped me move from disconnection from and fear of my pelvic space to feeling strong, sacred and integrated in my body. Each session is truly a gift of knowledge and nurturing.”  -KG Portland, OR 

“As beautiful as the birth of my son was, it was also very traumatic.  After he was born  I was rushed to the hospital, where I  received about 30 stitches. I could hardly move for the  first three weeks. Three and a half months later the pain was still really intense. My friend recommended that I try holistic pelvic care. The results that I had working with Beth were amazing. After only one session there was a drastic improvement in how I felt. I was very fortunate to be able to work with Beth. I highly recommend her.” –RR Cottage Grove, OR

“Beth’s intuition and experience coupled with her healing hands and heart is a rare treat.  From the moment you walk through the door, you know that you have arrived at a special place.  Beth is always centered, confident and very competent.  I have benefited from her acupuncture, advice and referrals.  She has helped me through several acute experiences with anxiety, physical injuries and overall well being.  I consider her a cornerstone to an ongoing routine of self care and personal transformation.” -SW Portland, OR

“I just wanted to… thank you for your help with Clyde yesterday.  You have such a nice way about you and were so gentle and nurturing with him.  We see a difference already in that he is less “fussy”, he has more awake time where he is happy and calm.  And his latch is better (I haven’t had to pop his upper lip up at all). We are so grateful to have found you and will see you again. “–CDE Portland, OR

“I wanted to thank you for helping us, it was a pleasure to meet you. I think your treatment really marked a turning point for Greta. She went from crying when we tried to nurse to really wanting to nurse, so now we are just working on her latch with the nipple shield and yesterday she breastfed almost exclusively! We still have a ways to go but big progress!”  -C&G Portland, OR

Justin Ilsley

About the Practitioner: Dr Justin Ilsley is a licensed primary care provider and acupuncturist. Although he maintains a family practice, Dr Ilsley also has a special interest in environmental medicine and intravenous nutrition therapy. He discovered these medicines while treating patients who, no matter how compliant with standard prescribed protocols, were not getting better. After looking into external causes and finding how common chemical exposures and heavy metals affect nutrient absorption, he found there were ways to remove these toxins out of the body and provide the patient with much needed nutrients into their bloodstream. Patients who, for years were not getting better, suddenly had an explanation for their symptoms and a path toward health. Click on the above links to read more detailed information. 

Combining Naturopathic and Chinese medicines, Dr. Ilsley enjoys treating a broad range of conditions from Dermatological and Immune pathology to Musculoskeletal and Emotional disorders. Visits may include multiple therapies such as acupuncture, craniosacral therapy, prescriptions of herb formulations or pharmaceuticals, and self care advice. These modalities are often included during IV treatments, giving patients a full spectrum of care. A typical non IV visit is 1.5 hours the first visit and 1 hour for returns. A typical IV therapy session is 1-2 hours. Our front desk can help you plan your visit to work with your other life commitments. Childcare is provided upon request and availability.

Training and Education include a B.S. in Biochemistry from Lewis and Clark College,  Masters of Oriental Medicine and a Doctorate of Naturopathy from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine. Dr. Ilsley completed a Post Doctoral Residency in IV Nutrition and Chelation with Dr. Virginia Osborne ND, RN and the Advanced Environmental Medicine program with Dr. Walter Crinion ND in Arizona. 

Professional affiliations include the OANP, OAAOM, NCCAOM, and ACAM. He has served on the OANP Board from 2005 to 2012.
