Hillary Lampers, ND
Hillary has returned to her hometown of Bozeman to offer, along with other services, a highly specialized procedure that saved her quality of life and paved the way for her to become a doctor in the first place.
From an early age, she faced some significant health challenges. Headaches, and chronic head pressure, were things she had dealt with for as long as she could remember. In fact, they were so ingrained in her day to day life that she assumed everybody had headaches. Many days she would wake up with a headache and go to bed with a headache.
She had also started suffering from a number of other symptoms, including anxiety, heart palpitations, panic attacks, pain in her body, and fatigue.
Her headaches and chronic head pressure continued to persist. She was always searching for solutions but couldn’t seem to find anything that would truly make them go away.
Then one day when her hair dresser mentioned a doctor who does this “really weird” treatment that can help with headaches. She put Hillary in touch with Dr. Dean Howell, a naturopathic doctor who was one of the developers of a treatment called NeuroCranial Restructuring (NCR). After talking extensively with Dr. Howell, as well as her own research, Hillary decided it was worth a try.
Her very first NCR treatment was a total game changer. All her life, to one degree or another, she had felt as though there was a vice grip attached to her head. After that first treatment, it felt like that vice grip had been loosened. By the end of the first four-day series of treatments, the vice grip was gone. And by the time she had completed a total of three NCR sessions over the course of the next eight months, her headaches had been completely eliminated. It was a radically life-altering moment that affected almost every facet of her experience. It improved her mood. It changed the structuring of her face. It improved her posture. She lost twenty pounds in two months. Most profoundly, she didn’t wake up in the morning with a headache anymore.
What she really wanted was to be involved with NCR. But the treatment could only be administered by an MD, a DO, or an ND. So she went to Dr. Howell and basically begged him for a job. For the next four years, worked as his assistant, doing everything from assisting with the actual NCR procedures to traveling around the country training other assistants while he trained other doctors.
In Dr. Howell’s practice they would often see 40 patients a day. She saw the treatment help headaches, breathing disorders, anxiety, depression, phobias, OCD, as well as many other conditions. She saw it helping everyone from athletes with Traumatic Brain Injuries to children with Down’s Syndrome.
So, she committed to the daunting nine-year education, including getting prerequisites at a community college, earning her undergraduate degree in Nutrition, and finally, in 2007, graduating from Bastyr University with her doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine.
For Hillary, med school was a direct path to being able to practice the treatment that had so undeniably saved her life. Straight out of school, she started her own private practice offering NCR and was soon overflowing with patients. She has since built on her success with NCR by expanding and offering other highly effective, specialized procedures such as Perineurial Injections Therapy (PIT) and Regenerative Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection Therapy. Drawing from her earliest experience with a naturopathic medicine, she utilizes the foundational principles of a health lifestyle along with her specialties to create a holistic and well rounded experience for her patients.
