Dr Carmen Ionescu (yo-ne'-skoo), earned her ND (Naturopathic Doctor), NUNM Portland, and MD from Carol Davila University of Medicine & Pharmacy in Romania's capital where, after a 5-year residency, she specialized in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry.

Since her childhood in Romania, nature medicine and folkways have been part of Dr Carmen's life and upbringing in her profession. At the side of grandparents and village elders, on mountain paths and country fields, Dr Carmen learned the rich folk remedies, the wisdom of the ages — the keys to physical and mental health. To that wisdom, she harmonizes the breadth and science of modern medicine.
Her personal interests have embraced Qi-LinGong with Master Lin Kai Tin, QiDao advanced practitioner certification with Lama Somananda Tantrapa in Portland, Buddhist mysticism at Ven. Lama Karma's Drukpa Mila Center in Salem, & native Lakota folkways with Chief Tsunka Wakan Sapa. She and her husband Ron are observant Orthodox Christians.
