Dr. Bryant Esquejo, ND

Naturopathic Doctor

How did you get into Naturopathic Medicine?

I got into Naturopathic Medicine through my travels and the desire to help people out. I knew I wanted to be a healer from an early age because of personal experiences with health and loss. In college, I had the opportunity to first travel to Costa Rica for a study abroad program, where I first saw the power of natural medicine. I was cutting mango trees in the middle of the rainforest, and I saw that my ankles were swollen from ant bites. When I got home to my host family, my host mom bathed my feet in some herbs, and the swelling went down. After that, I became interested in natural medicine and wanted to know more. So, I traveled to China - Beijing, Xi’an, and Shanghai - to see the power of Traditional Chinese Medicine. After seeing how effective natural treatments were in hospitals, I decided to go into natural medicine and apply to naturopathic medical school in Portland, OR.

How do you practice?

I am trained as a primary care doctor. So, I can treat most conditions, but I have a special focus on gut health (IBS, SIBO), hormonal issues (low thyroid, Hashimoto’s, menopause), natural skin care, and autoimmune conditions. I primarily use herbal medicine, therapeutic nutrition, IV nutritional drips, and energetic medicines to help support the healing process. I believe that all people are unique and deserve individual treatment plans so that targeting the root cause of their symptoms is fast and effective.

What is your favorite part about being a doctor?

I honestly enjoy teaching people new things so that their health can profit from their experience. I find excitement in seeing fascination in someone’s eyes when I teach them something new about natural medicine or their bodies so that they can reach higher states of wellness.

What are you doing when not at work?

Outside of work I enjoy checking out art and design, hiking, going to the beach, and people watching at a cafe. You can see most of my adventures on my instagram @dr.bryant

And your favorite baked good?

Apple pie with the crumbles on top.

Do you have a favorite quote?

"Before you change the world, you must realize that you, yourself, are apart of it. You can’t stand outside looking in.” - Father, The Dreamers by Bernardo Bertolucci
