Dr. Paul Misczyszyn ND

Naturopathic Physician

Paul’s health philosophy was shaped early in his adolescence. Growing up in Chicago as a 1st generation Polish-American, he was taught a European perspective on health and diet, which eventually led him to pursue a naturopathic doctorate. He attributes many personal accomplishments to his healthy upbringing, which built a body that was vibrant and sharp. Physical activity is very important to him, and after recovering from personal health issues, he strives to help others restore their energy and mobility to experience the joys of their passions. Being able to move through life with energy and excitement is his personal goal.

After completing degrees in Psychology and Molecular Biology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, he attended the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, OR. The naturopathic profession resonated with his values for prevention and sustainable health, and he is grateful and honored to help patients every day.

He loves cooking, photography, and physical activities such as hiking, camping, soccer, snowboarding, rock climbing, swimming, running, and biking.

Paul’s Philosophy of Medicine

Paul believes that our biomedical health reverberates into every part of our lives: work, relationships, physicality, and attitude. Using a thorough health assessment and in-depth lab testing, he works with patients to replace unhealthy habits with tools to promote health. He believes health requires regular attention/care, and the best investment we can make is in our long term health.
