About the Presenter:
Dr. Allderdice graduated from the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) in 2008, followed by two years of residency and one year on staff at Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Philadelphia, PA. He completed his board certification in naturopathic oncology in 2011 and moved back to his native Portland, Oregon, to start private practice. Dr. Allderdice considers himself as an integrator with one foot planted firmly in the science of medicine and the other in the wisdom of natural healing. This began in his childhood, raised in separate houses, one where his father was an ER doctor and the other with his mother practicing holistic psychotherapy. Growing up Dr. Allderdice never felt drawn to take the path of either parent, but was informed by each as he grew up traveling between different paradigms. He sees the value of science, logic, mechanism and research but knows that medicine is broader than this. Dr. Allderdice feels we must honor the human experience; take into account emotions, thoughts and experience. They directly affect wellbeing. The most powerful approach to health is created when the science of medicine and the art of healing can be woven together to support one another.
