I provide complementary care for patients who wish to prevent, currently have or are interested in avoiding a recurrence of breast cancer.  Breast cancer is in part a result of hormonal imbalance which is often due to environmental “xenoestrogens” (plastics, pesticides etc..) and poor detoxification.  I provide patients with specialty testing to determine how their body detoxifies and processes hormones.  I also screen for nutritional deficiencies (such as vitamin D), excess insulin and inflammation; all associated with cancer.  I make specific supplement recommendations based on laboratory testing that will assist my patient’s immune systems win the fight against cancer.
