About me

As a primary care physician licensed in Oregon, Doctor Danielle Smith Anderson has founded her Integrative medical practice on the principal of treating the whole person; with a view to psychological integration and a healthy emotional outlook being central to both physical health and life fulfillment. Terrain Wellness Integrative Medical Clinic shares Dr Danielle Smith Anderson's vision of learning the spiritual and physical "terrain" of each person and that truly accepting one's own terrain will lead to health and self-actualization. While many may find us by searching things like Naturopath Portland or hearing a word of mouth referral for acupuncture Portland, Oregon these phrases only cover a few small facets of what we offer our patients.

Dr. Dani has a bachelor's degree in dental hygiene from the University of Southern California and practiced in dentistry for over 9 years before finishing medical school. She graduated with a doctorate in Naturopathic medicine and a Master's degree in acupuncture from The National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon.

Simply known as Dr. Dani. She is the founder of Terrain Wellness (An Integrative Medical Clinic in Portland, Oregon), and co-owner of an herbal beverage company called Doctor Bird Elixirs. Dr. Dani has over 200 hours of training in Applied Kinesiology, and enjoys incorporating homeopathy, western herbs, nutrition, and essential oils into her treatments. She believes every person should feel better when they leave the doctor's office.

In her practice as a Naturopathic Physician and in her personal life, Dr. Danielle Smith Anderson believes that greater life satisfaction comes through living an authentic life. For Dr. Dani, living in her authenticity comes through cultivating self-awareness, healthy boundaries with herself and others. Although self-awareness and conscious living are popular buzzwords, truly living a life that is disentangled from the ego is a lifelong pursuit that is never truly mastered. And, perhaps ironically, to feel as if one has mastered conscious living may well be an indication that more growth is needed. Through the practices of deep breathing, yoga, time in nature and directing the mind to peaceful silence, Dr Dani finds much-needed time for replenishing her internal reserves.

As a physician, Dr Dani knows how easy it is for all humans to react to life out of a fight-or-flight state where our decisions are made by the primitive regions of the brain. This fight-or-flight response puts our body in a position of stress that diminishes our higher reasoning and may lead to irrational or reactionary words or behavior. This stress response is activated by the body's sympathetic nervous system as a means of self-preservation during life or death emergencies. And, while the sympathetic nervous system may help save your life in a disaster, it can also lead to great human suffering in one's personal relationships, life goals and physical health. Anyone who has ever had an argument spiral out of control only to later regret what was said or done knows the dark side of "fight-or-flight" first-hand. Furthermore, while we've all heard stories of the heroic mother who lifted up a car to save her child, what is often left unsaid is the long-term damage that habitually living in a high-stress state of being causes. Thankfully, the process of deep breathing or meditating helps reduce the unwanted effects of the body moving into fight-or-flight too quickly or in situations where it is unproductive.

Helping patients identify and find relief from unconscious sources of stress and trauma is a core value of Dr. Dani and Terrain Wellness. When the body is in a stress response too often, naturally occurring chemicals in the body like cortisol can build up over time and lead to conditions such as adrenal fatigue, weight gain and high blood pressure while also exacerbating the body's often-harmful inflammatory responses. In short, too much stress can be harmful or even fatal if left untreated. In her practice as a Naturopathic Physician in Portland, Oregon, Dr Dani. of Terrain Wellness helps patients identify these unconscious sources of stress that may influence the patterns of our health in fascinating ways. Through a blend of learning, acupuncture, muscle-testing and mindfulness, Dr Dani helps patients improve their quality of life through reducing stress and increasing self-awareness.
