Dr. Lesya Lasota is a licensed naturopathic physician, with special interests in mental health and classical homeopathy. When Dr. Lasota completed her studies in psychology at the University of South Carolina, she had wondered if there was something more that she could do than to provide counseling for people. It seemed odd to her that the mind and the spirit of a person could be studied solely without, also, understanding and appreciating the body. To her, it seemed that the body had as much influence over the state of the mind as the mind had over the state of the body. The idea that the two were interconnected led her to continue her education at the National College of Natural Medicine, where she could satisfy her curiosity and further her admiration of what it means to be a human being. Now, she is delighted to offer her services at Portland Natural Medicine in Southeast Portland.
Dr. Lasota enjoys reading, watching films, and admiring beautiful and thought-provoking art. She has used her love and understanding of literature, art, and film to deepen her knowledge of homeopathy and compassion and empathy for people.
