Dr. Emily Cleveland-Job, N.D.
Dr. Emily Cleveland-Job, a Naturopathic Doctor, received her doctoral degree from the National College of Natural Medicine, now the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) in Portland, OR. Her approach to health begins with the belief that clients are best served when the physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional aspects of health are all considered and addressed. She emphasizes prevention of disease by promoting healthy lifestyle choices and whole foods nutrition. Before moving home to Oak Ridge, TN, Dr. Cleveland-Job enjoyed a thriving practice in Portland, OR.
Dr. Cleveland-Job, as a certified provider of the Low Energy Neurofeedback System, has worked with a number of patients who have suffered from neurological, cognitive and emotional difficulties after traumatic brain injury. These individuals often have trouble identifying the cause of their difficulties, because symptoms may not appear until many months after an injury.
With Low Energy Neurofeedback System (LENS), Dr. Cleveland-Job has helped many individuals by reducing the frequency and severity of headaches; improving cognitive function, attention and focus; and alleviating anger, moodiness, anxiety, and insomnia; thus enabling many previously incapacitated individuals to return to their jobs. LENS is very effective at decreasing and, in some cases, completely resolving seizures. Dr. Cleveland-Job continues to be amazed by the brain’s ability to heal when given the right stimulation.
She has extensive knowledge in the care of various cardiovascular conditions, hormonal imbalances and difficulties with menopause, thyroid problems, weight gain and diabetes.

Dr. Cleveland-Job completed a one-year internship at NCNM working with individuals who were recovering from traumatic brain injuries. With this internship and additional training through Ochs Labs in Sebastapol, CA, she became a certified provider of LENS and is experienced in treating many conditions including attention disorders, migraines, seizures, chronic pain, anxiety, sleep disorders, depression, post-traumatic stress, attention and hyperactivity problems, reactive attachment disorder and the many symptoms resulting from traumatic brain injuries.
