Cory Tichauer, ND
Dr. Cory Tichauer grew up in Omaha, Nebraska from where, as early as he can remember, he wanted to be a doctor. This passion led him to pursue several positions of leadership working in local hospitals and volunteer organizations. He began his official premedical studies at Cornell University graduating with honors with a B.A. in Neurobiology and Behavior. As part of his college experience, Dr. Tichauer studied abroad in Nepal where he did an extensive research project on traditional healing methods that provided him with the opportunity to work closely with a shaman. This encounter had profound significance, for it challenged Dr. Tichauer to evaluate his motivations and purpose for becoming a physician. With a rediscovered purpose to become more than just a doctor, but a healer, his inquiries led him to the National College of Naturopathic Medicine where he graduated after five years of study with his doctorate.
Believing that the body has, within itself, the inherent ability to heal, Dr. Tichauer utilizes therapeutics designed to remove obstacles to health while simultaneously invigorating the self-healing mechanisms of the body. In this model, health and disease are represented in a continuum where degeneration occurs only when a person is unable to shed sources of accumulating toxicity. Healing is accomplished through the rational and sequential stimulation and elimination of toxins from specific organs and tissues. Dr. Tichauer incorporates the use of drainage, nutrition, homeopathy, botanical medicine, spinal manipulation, and IV therapeutics to encourage this process and assist his patients in achieving their health goals. He employs state-of-the-art laboratory testing to support in diagnosis and tracking of underlying problems. Dr. Tichauer works to create individual treatment plans designed to address the physical, emotional, and spiritual spheres of being as a holistic approach toward optimizing health. As a primary care physician, he treats all forms of illness with a focus on chronic disease.
Dr. Tichauer enjoys mountaineering, skiing, rock climbing, road biking, backpacking, and playing guitar amongst his many hobbies. He is practicing full time at the Bear Creek Naturopathic Clinic.
