Dr. Feibelman’s Principles of Naturopathic Medicine include:

  • The Healing Power of Nature (Vis Medicatrix Naturae)
    Trust in the body’s inherent wisdom to heal itself. The vital force, the “Vis”, is the capacity within each living being that promotes self-healing.

  • First Do No Harm (Primum Non Nocere)
    Utilize the most natural, least invasive, and least toxic therapies.
  • Identify and Treat the Cause (Tolle Causam)
    Look beyond the symptoms to the underlying cause.
  • Treat the Whole Person (Tolle Totum)
    View the body as an integrated whole in all its physical and spiritual dimensions.
  • Prevention (Defendere)
    Focus on overall health, wellness and disease prevention.
  • Physician as Teacher (Docere): Educate patients in the steps to achieving and maintaining health.

About Dr. Feibelman

Dr. Marcy Feibelman grew up in Rhode Island. Ever since they were a child they had a strong desire to help people. Their interest in natural medicine first came about when they were a teenager, after working with alternative medicine providers to recover from a back injury. Through the combined efforts of a chiropractor, a physical therapist/ craniosacral therapist, and an acupuncturist, they had a smooth recovery. During that time, Dr. Feibelman gained a great appreciation for how the body works and its ability to heal. Their interest in the sciences was ignited, and they decided to pursue a degree in biology and a career in medicine.

In 2004, Dr. Feibelman graduated from Brown University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology. After working in Boston for a few years in the pharmaceutical industry, they decided to explore medical school options and discovered naturopathic medicine. After reading about the philosophy and treatment modalities, and visiting one of the schools, Dr. Feibelman had found their professional home. They knew they wanted to learn how to help the body heal itself – one of the founding tenets of naturopathic medicine. In 2011, Dr. Feibelman graduated from the National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM) with a doctorate in naturopathic medicine.

Dr. Feibelman states, “Moving to Portland and the Pacific Northwest was one of the most enriching experiences of my life. It’s exciting to move forward and share what I have learned. I look forward to following my passion of helping people to heal and prevent future health problems. My goal is to understand how your body developed its symptoms, what caused the underlying imbalances, and how these changes have affected your life. We will work together to uncover these answers.”
