People ask me all the time, what is it that attracted me to the area of integrative oncology? Isn’t it hard working with people who have cancer? So let me tell you why I do what I do.
From the moment my clinical practice began as a student and I started taking appointments with people diagnosed with cancer, I was blown away by the things I heard week after week. “My energy hasn’t been this good in years!” “I’ve been sleeping like a baby.” “My pain is so much better – I finally was able to get back to yoga.” “Sometimes I feel like I don’t have cancer.”
It became apparent to me from the start of my career how powerful and extremely effective naturopathic medicine can be with those struggling with side effects from chemotherapy or radiation, and who are trying to recover after their treatments.
I believe that people should be able to live a normal life when they have cancer, and afterwards. With a little bit of help with diet counselling, IV therapies, and specific medical grade supplements, quality of life can be enhanced to the point where you also might not feel like you have cancer.
I am extremely passionate about naturopathic integrative oncology and wish all patients could experience the profound benefits it has to offer.
