Dr. Christina Bergstrom is a family physician, teacher and mother with training in functional medicine, integrative and holistic medicine, and nutrition. Dr. Bergstrom has been interested in health and healing since childhood and has been studying how to assist the body in creating optimal health ever since.
Dr. Bergstrom studied chemistry and chemical biology during her undergraduate years at Harvard University. During her medical school training at Tulane University Medical School in New Orleans she maintained a dedication to educating herself about natural health. She studied meditation, developed presentations on nutrition, and studied acupuncture in addition to her conventional medicine training.
When she graduated from medical school Dr. Bergstrom chose to specialize in family medicine, because it seemed most consistent with her desire to teach people how to prevent and proactively treat disease. She completed her family medicine residency at Providence Milwaukie Family Medicine Residency in Oregon in 2009.
Dr. Bergstrom loves the Pacific Northwest and following residency stayed in the Portland area to practice family medicine with PeaceHealth Medical Group in Vancouver, Washington. From 2015 to 2017 Dr. Bergstrom opened and operated a holistic and functional medicine clinic in Portland, Oregon. Now at Ridgefield Family Medicine since 2018 Dr. Bergstrom appreciates being able to weave the concepts of holistic medicine into a conventional family medicine practice offering patients the best of both worlds.
