Dr. Trina Seligman graduated with a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine in 1996, and a Masters in Acupuncture in 1999. Dr. Seligman opened Evergreen Integrative Medicine (EIMED) with the goal of integrating natural medicine with conventional therapies. Since opening EIMED, she has worked diligently to stay on top of research in natural medicine and to provide her patients with high quality integrative care. Her practice is a family practice with an interest in women’s health, mental health and gastrointestinal diseases. Trina was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis as a teenager and has always hoped to integrate conventional medicine with natural medicine to help provide IBD patients with better choices and a more comprehensive treatment plan. When developing a treatment plan, she likes to take a collaborative approach, not only with the patient, but blending the best of both conventional and natural medicines. She uses bio-identical hormones, herbal and nutritional therapies and enjoys talking about lifestyle and exercise.

“Life is about balance. I have a full-time practice, family and a dog, but still need to find time to exercise and stay healthy. I love helping patients to find that balance in their own lives and create wellness through their life choices.”
