I first met Dr. Borten in 2000. He was just getting started in a small office in SW Portland. One wall was shelved with large glass jars full of all the standard Chinese herbs. Even in the early days of his practice, Peter had a calm and confident persona along with an amazing healing ability.
Over the years I called on Peter for some intensive nutritional counseling. I also referred a couple people to him who had remarkable success with his healing guidance. I have trusted Peter for years with my health and well being. He is the type of person that is honest, direct, efficient and compassionate.
Dr. Borten’s breadth of knowledge around health and healing is, quite simply, stunning. I’ve never met anyone else with Peter’s depth of understanding about how the mind, body and spirit work to create health or disease in a person.
On top of that, he’s one of the most caring and compassionate healers I’ve ever met. He has my complete trust and tremendous admiration as a gifted healer.
Under Dr. Borten’s care I flourished and found a sense of control, vitality and self-love that I could never access before. Peter helped me to simplify and get back to the basics of health, strength and appropriate nutrition all the while encouraging me to be a kinder person to myself.
I feel, to this day, truly fortunate to have worked with him.
Dr. Borten’s course was extremely helpful.
Sometimes when deciding on what to include in my diet I was never sure about certain foods or supplements. He really helped fill in the gaps. His years of experience helping treat his patients and extensive knowledge helped me understand the pros and cons of everything from soy and honey to gluten and fish oil.
Dr. Borten’s course was very eye opening for me. I consider myself to have a fairly thorough understanding of health and nutrition, but Dr. Borten filled in so many “gaps” in knowledge for me. He explained why certain foods behave in different ways in our bodies and in different combinations. I appreciated how he was able to take complex information and make it easy to understand.
I feel very empowered going forward to make better food choices for myself and for my loved ones. Thank you Dr. Borten!
