Leslie Fuller, ND
Though originally from the Midwest, Dr. Leslie Fuller has called Oregon her home for the past 15 years. She has been actively involved in the health and wellness arena, with a focus on sports medicine and neurologic disability, for over a decade. She has focused on working with individuals with spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy, stroke, as well as helping able-bodied individuals become the best athletes possible. It was while pursuing her Bachelor of Science in Human Physiology at the University of Oregon that Dr. Fuller discovered her interest and ignited her passion for naturopathic medicine.
Dr. Fuller specializes in IV therapy, lifestyle modification through exercise and nutritional alterations, herbal remedies, and physical medicine techniques that help to manage sprains, strains, chronic and acute injuries, as well as nerve and muscular damage. Various injection techniques, including prolotherapy and trigger point injections, are also a specialty. Dr. Fuller completed a two-year residency program through NCNM, where she became extremely proficient in the medical management of many chronic healthcare issues, including diabetes, hypertension, asthma, allergies, hormonal imbalance and digestive problems.
Dr. Fuller continues to lecture at NCNM on the topic of IV Therapy. Weekly, she is in charge of a teaching rotation at the NCNM Clinic, focused on using IV Therapy as a main modality. She remains connected to and invested in several nonprofit disability groups throughout Oregon, and is excited by the potential impact that naturopathic medicine will have on the field of neurological rehabilitation. As she has been a personal trainer in the Portland area for the last 9 years, Dr. Fuller has remained well rooted in the current research and advisory for athletic enhancement, weight loss and health maintenance, and encourages her patients to explore exercise and fitness at whatever level possible.
