The Downward Spiral of Pain

June 12th, 2015

The Downward Spiral

I live in Portland, OR where there is a Chiropractor, Naturopathic Doctor, Acupuncturist, Massage Therapist, Physical Therapist and Personal Trainer on nearly every corner. It’s honestly like Starbucks around here for Complementary/Alternative Medicine practitioners.

I am the end of the road doctor for most of my patients. As you can imagine, if they live here, they’ve had access to and worked their way through the circuit of practitioners before they get to me. Many come from all over the country and Canada even! They’ve usually done their due diligence […]

Anti-Aging in 5 Simple Steps

May 15th, 2015

There is a lot of talk in the functional medicine community and Naturopathic community about “Anti-Aging”. The term elicits visions of hormone replacement creams, B-vitamin shots for energy, fancy detox regimens, aesthetic procedures and the like. While all of these treatments are indeed part of any good anti-aging doctor’s arsenal, there are some basics that need to be covered for any of these treatments to “take”. With the following information, any human can turn back the hands of time, all on their own, with very little cost to them. […]

Eating for Arthritis: Food for Pain Relief

January 20th, 2015

A common conversation that I have with patients on the first visit is FOOD. People seldom realize that the foods they choose to eat on a daily basis may very well be driving their pain. Nearly every patient believes that if I inject some regenerative medicine solution into their joints that their pain will be relieved.


While their pain usually will decrease to some degree with injection therapies, the results are very contingent on their diet. Nearly everyone will get some level of pain relief with Prolotherapy or Platelet Rich Plasma, […]

5 Things To Do Now When You’ve Had a Sports Injury

October 21st, 2014

Getting injured is never fun. People often ask me what they should do when they’ve had an acute injury (like a hard bump to the knee, post-workout soreness, a mild sprain or pulled muscles).

So long as it’s NOT a moderate to severe injury (the kind that requires a visit to the doctor), the following advice is my go-to treatment.

1) Alternating Hot/Cold Therapy: 3 min hot/ 30 seconds cold. (not scalding hot, not freezing cold). 3 times a day minimum. This moves the blood around and all the chemicals out that […]

Dr. Tyna’s Top 10 Rules for Weight Optimization

October 13th, 2014

I am often asked what “my secret is” as I am a fairly lean and fit woman who has officially entered “middle age”. So here it is, these are my big secrets. These are the rules I live by.

I really hate to use the term ‘weight loss’ because it’s not really about that. Health is about so much more. It’s about keeping inflammation low, function high, mood elevated, strength high and having endurance. It’s ALL about your hormones and eating/exercising for the overall benefit of healthy hormones.

Although I come from […]

The Blessing of Autoimmune Illness

July 28th, 2014

How on earth can I say such a thing? I can say it because I live it, I have treated hundreds of patients with it and I diagnose it more often than I would like. Autoimmune Illness is truly an epidemic. It can also be a blessing if you learn to manage it.

If you have an Autoimmune Illness chances are that you have more than one. It’s like a rainbow, once you are on it you are basically an open door for any one of the hundreds of […]

5 Reasons to Choose Prolotherapy Over Surgery

May 19th, 2014

When faced with the serious prospect of going through surgery, it is good practice to research every option available. Depending on the condition, many people are choosing a more natural way to heal their bodies. For this blog, we talked with Dr. Tyna Moore of Core Wellness Clinic, and asked her to explain why patients are choosing to have Prolotherapy over surgery.


1. Commitment

Simply put: Surgery can not be undone. Once a patient has had a surgical procedure, they can never “un-do” it. As Dr. Moore explains; […]
