ABOUT DR. SAND
Dr. Rebecca Sand is a naturopathic physician, acupuncturist, and educator based in Portland, Oregon. Her practice specializes in conditions of the microbiome, gut-brain axis, hormone systems, and fertility.
Dr. Sand came to integrative medicine after spending 7 years in genetics and infectious disease research laboratories in the US and China to advance international collaboration in medicine. During this time, she also conducted field work training under traditional healers in Tibet, China, India, and Polynesia. Following her doctoral training, Dr. Sand went on to complete a 2-year post-graduate residency in integrative gastroenterology, reproductive health, and fertility at Kwan Yin Healing Arts Center in Portland, OR.
Having struggled with chronic digestive and hormone conditions herself, Dr. Sand is committed to improving healthcare for her patients. She advocates for inclusiveness and equity in medicine, including culturally sensitive, trauma-informed, and size, gender, and identity-affirming care.
Dr. Sand is an amazing provider - she is incredibly smart, so up to date on the recent research and treatments, listens intently, has the biggest heart and the most healing touch and presence. I would highly recommend her as a doctor.
