With a BA in Neurobiology from Cornell University and a medical degree from the National University of Natural Medicine, Dr. Tichauer has primarily focused on the realm of chronic infectious illness, neurodegenerative conditions, environmental medicine and autoimmune disease for the past 18 years of practice. He has been a member of the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society since 2009 when he accepted a fellowship to receive formal training in the treatment of Lyme. Recognizing the challenges with treating these increasingly complex cases, Dr. Tichauer traveled to Germany in 2016 to tour several Lyme clinics and learn how to integrate certain proven European therapies into his practice model. He recently completed four years of service as an elected board member of the Oregon Association of Naturopathic Physicians (OANP) and has remained an active member of both the International Society for Environmentally Acquired Illness (ISEAI) and the International Hyperbaric Association (IHA). For the half decade years, Dr. Tichauer has been focused on better understanding the complexity of chronic disease as it relates to immune dysfunction. His interest currently lies in identifying objective data sources to better delineate between infectious, immunologic and toxogenic etiologies for illness. Always striving to provide the best possible care, he continues to research and apply cutting edge therapeutic interventions to both individualize therapy and ensure successful outcomes.
