Advanced Testing and Aggressive Therapies to Treat Cancer


A cancer diagnosis is scary news to hear.  It is important to know that it is not a death sentence.  There are options.  Big decisions will need to be made about your health at a hugely emotional charged time.

A huge misconception about naturopathic medicine is that it is not as effective nor as aggressive as conventional cancer therapies such as chemotherapy, radiation or surgery.  This article is designed to educate you on our approach to treating cancer and shed light on viable options.

We have advanced testing that accesses the body’s ability to regulate and self-heal.  We do evaluations for function of organs and various systems of the body which may be weakened or out of balance.  We evaluate the body’s biochemistry and ability to sustain healthy cells.

We have the tools to do aggressive cancer therapies using treatments that support and strengthen the body.  Our focus is to treat underlying causes that allowed cancer cells to grow within the body.  We work to remove those underlying causes and strengthen any weaknesses in the body.  Our approach is focused on the process that allowed cancer cells to grow, we are not only focused on the tumor or cancerous tissues.
