Dr Soszka moves to Beeson Wellness Center full time!

Dr. Soszka Moves His Practice to Beeson Wellness Center

After 5 years at the Blue Sky Wellness Studio, I am moving my clinical practice to Beeson Wellness Center located in Sellwood Neighborhood of Southeast Portland. I will begin full time on August 1st. My last day seeing patients at Blue Sky will be July 28th. I am only accepting new patients at the Beeson Wellness Center. One of the most exciting aspects of this move is my expanded hours which will be Monday through Friday.

Much like my previous clinic, Blue Sky Wellness, I accept most medical insurance plans which can be viewed here. It is important to confirm that your insurance plan covers naturopathic and acupuncture care. CareOregon Patients: please note I am not yet contracted with CareOregon at the new clinic, and cannot see CareOregon patient until the new facility is approved. This expected to be completed by mid-August.

Upcoming Lecture on Fatigue at New Seasons

Upcoming Lecture on Fatigue at New Seasons

Hello, Dr. Soszka here, I’m pleased to announce that I am lecturing on the subject of fatigue at the newly opened “Woodstock” New Seasons Market on February, 17th 2015. This talk will be on Wednesday evening from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. The title of the lecture is “Unraveling the Mystery of Fatigue“.

I believe the title is fitting when discussing fatigue since many people are left with no solid answers about why they are constantly tired. Fatigue has many possible causes, many of which often unrecognized by conventional medicine. Most conventional practitioners will look for causes such as sleep apnea, iron anemia, and thyroid disorders. Patient who test negative for these three are often labeled as “depressed”, which I believe is a diagnosis that is commonly used incorrectly.Fatigue Lecture

Certainly sleep apnea is a significant factor in fatigue, however the predisposing factors for this condition are not typically addressed: obesity, airway tissue weakness (think vitamin deficiencies), airway inflammation (allergies and chronic inflammation) and so on. Likewise, anemia, whether iron or other nutrients, can certainly play a role in fatigue. Finally, thyroid conditions are actually commonly missed, because physicians typically order TSH level exclusively, and there is disagreement about which lab ranges levels are ideal. Thyroid Stimulating hormone (TSH) is the hormone sent from the pituitary to signal the thyroid to make more thyroid hormone. Unfortunately, there are far more thyroid dysfunction patterns that don’t show up when ordering TSH lab test exclusively.

In this presentation, I will explore the possible underlying causes of poor energy including vitamin and mineral deficiencies, sleep disorders, adrenal and thyroid dysfunction, and stealth infections. I will also discuss the many holistic option to restore one’s energy level to optimal levels. If you want to learn more about fatigue, please join me at this lecture next week.
