A Brief Letter to MD Oncologists
I offer my oncology patients a team-supported approach to care by collaborating with their conventional medical team. As a Licensed Naturopathic Physician and a Naturopathic Oncologist certified by the American Board for Naturopathic Oncology, I help my patients and their conventional treatment team fully integrate care using safe, effective, and science-based natural support.
I do not provide alternative cancer care – I am an Integrative practitioner and will work only with patients who are under the care of a Medical Oncologist. Furthermore, my years of experience as a hospital RN throughout the United States has informed the way I practice naturopathic medicine. My primary goal in caring for cancer patients who are receiving active treatment is to mitigate chemotherapy and radiation side effects in order to help you and your patients avoid dose reductions or shortened regimens. I am also trained by the Cancer Treatment Centers of America in the careful selection of natural medicinals that help preserve the integrity of healthy, non-cancerous cells without compromising conventional treatments. My recommendations are always based on peer-reviewed medical literature, are clinically appropriate, safe, beneﬁcial and individualized to meet the needs of each of your patients.
I can also help answer all questions your patients might have about various “cancer remedies” and “alternative treatments”. I apply evidence-based ﬁndings to every answer and can clearly demonstrate to the both doctor and patient the risks and beneﬁts of each product, guiding patients away from harmful products and preventing premature cessation of conventional care.
A collaboration with Specialized Natural Healthcare of VT will help you improve how your patients experience the treatments you offer by providing them with the safest, most powerful natural support available.
