Dr. David Palacios is a licensed naturopathic physician specializing in acute and chronic pain resolution with natural and regenerative therapies. Dr. David (as he likes to be called) also has a passion for taking care of families in a holistic primary care setting. After earning his bachelor’s degree in Biology with a minor in Music, he completed his four-year medical training at the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, OR. Dr. David also completed an extended residency which centered on acute and chronic pain resolution with regenerative modalities, male hormone balance, and general primary care. Dr. David has completed extensive training in regenerative medicine with stem cell injection and IV therapy as well as ozone injection therapy and IV therapy.
A foundational piece of Dr. David’s success in treating and healing is found in the six naturopathic principles: Do No Harm, Identify and Treat the Cause, The Healing Power of Nature, Doctor as Teacher, Treat the Whole Person, and Disease Prevention.
Dr. David takes a detailed, patient-centered, natural and holistic approach to bring about optimal wellness and function to the individual. He believes that natural therapies should be the first line of defense in treating illness and disease and should be exhausted before pharmaceutical intervention is considered. If patients are currently taking pharmaceutical medication, his goal is to work these patients off of pharmaceutical intervention.
Dr. David utilizes a variety of conventional and naturopathic treatment modalities to best establish optimal health and wellness in his patients. Some of the modalities include: Neural Therapy, Prolotherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma, Ozone IV Therapy and Prolozone Therapy, Stem Cell Injection and IV Therapy, botanical/herbal medicine, homeopathy, dry needle therapy, naturopathic manipulation techniques, and nutritional counseling.
