What our patients say:


“I feel so great!!” — Micah


“I came to see Dr. Izakson three years ago at one of the lowest points, health-wise, in my life. I had seen a number of specialists and no one knew what was actually going on with me, but they were all perfectly willing to put me on medications with very undesirable side effects. That was not okay with me and it was very disconcerting that none of my other physicians seemed concerned about the cause of my health problems. Dr. Izakson cared and she was concerned. That alone was a huge comfort to me. Over the past three years she has dug deep to find out the root of my symptoms and has made a plan for me that manages my condition without use of drugs with dangerous side effects. Her suggestions have improved my overall health, not just put a band-aid on one single problem.  I am forever grateful. If you decide to go to Celilo Natural Health Center, you can expect to be listened to; your opinion will be valued. In addition, Dr. Izakson is wicked smart.” — Tonia


“I came expecting to get something for my body aches, not do something about them. I was already fit and active. Modifying my diet and exercise made no sense to me, but that’s what Dr. Orna prescribed. When I finally surrendered and did the drill, my aches vanished along with 21 pounds! I’ve chosen to continue seeing Dr. Orna monthly and now I say, ‘Yes Ma’am’ to her advice. Because it works.” — Kelly


“After a traumatic back injury my life changed abruptly. I went from a running lifestyle and weight of 205 pounds to a sedentary lifestyle and up to 245 pounds in a few months. I struggled to take it off for almost a year. With Doc Izakson’s blood test review and diet suggestions plus supplements, I’m at 194 pounds — the lightest I’ve been since 1989, when I was 18, in the Army and running 30 miles a week and humping rucksacks all day and night. Now I’m in the woods with my chainsaw again. Thank you, Doctor!” — DLD



What Eric’s eating.

“Hi Dr. O! Can’t wait to catch up with you and tell you about all the changes. Attached are a couple of pics of what I have been eating, I have also remained beer free this whole time. I have lost weight and feel so much better. I can not wait for what’s next!” — Eric



“My personal testimonial: I drive from Corvallis to Portland to see Orna. Gladly, and in the rain.” — Alison




“Dr. Izakson and I had a short phone call about the flu stubbornly lingering in my respiratory system. I am amazed at the progress of my body since that conversation. Minimal mucus after two days of neti-ing with the addition of Oregon grape every few hours (and on her advice I ate nothing but onion garlic broth those days, was able to breathe normally that very night after speaking with the good Dr.), still keeping it up several times a day, determined to continue til there is absolutely no more yellow snot (still blowing some in the mornings…). I’ve gone thru three bottles of the lung formula tincture but the cough is basically gone. I’ve used tinctures for years, but only now do I understand what constitutes a truly therapeutic dose. She wanted to work with what I had available to me, and I felt cared for in a way that is unfortunately becoming uncommon in health care. A real gem.—MPK



“The one thing I love the most is the time you take to listen and go over things with me. You always make sure you take the time to get the information to answer all my question. To me this is the single most important part of the care you give me as your patient. I have no other doctor who takes the time and expends the energy you give your patients. You will never receive such care or receive so much caring. Thank you, Dr. Izakson, you are the very best.” — Susan (See more from Susan here.)



“As an entrepreneur with a busy lifestyle, health concerns are rarely addressed as part of my strategic plan.  As an entrepreneur, my stubbornness is a challenge for anyone at the best of times.  Dr. Orna has worked with me at my pace, within my lifestyle conditions in providing the health coaching that will allow me to grow my business and, more important, enjoy all that life has to offer.  She is a valued member of my success team.” — Andy



“Dr. Izakson’s practice is a wonderful combination of encyclopedic medical knowledge and relaxed, thoughtful patient care. She is able to adapt treatment to each individual patient – a rare thing to come by in medical care these days.” — Jennifer
