Conventional Medicine Limits Healing Options for Cancer

Conventional Medicine Limits Healing Options for Cancer

Cancer is one of the most prevalent diseases in today’s society.

In fact, according to the American Cancer Society, approximately 40% of all U.S. adults will develop some form of cancer

throughout life — and the statistics only continue to climb. Yet ever since the dramatic rise of cancer began in the early 1990’s, the conventional treatment approach has remained limited.

Luckily, there ARE other tools that can complement your cancer care.

Functional Medicine Offers More Tools for Cancer Care

Conventional Medicine Isn't the Only Option

Conventional Medicine

Conventional medicine offers the majority of patients just three options: radiation, chemotherapy, and surgery. Unable to distinguish between healthy and cancerous cells, all three of these methods are notoriously known for their harsh side effects that not only significantly reduce quality of life, but leave patients critically vulnerable to more diseases and secondary cancers. Additionally, none of these conventional treatments even attempt to address why cancer developed in the first place. Even when they effectively attack the symptoms of disease, patients often find a recurrence of disease later, as the root problem has been left untouched.

Complementary Cancer Care

A holistic treatment philosophy that considers each individual medically, physically, neurologically, and psychologically, rather than treating health problems merely as isolated diseases, functional medicine focuses on getting to the root cause of disease and providing relief from existing symptoms without causing additional damage or side effects. By utilizing a combination of therapies and approaching healing from every possible avenue, functional medicine offers more tools to cancer patients and maximizes healing odds.

Deep Diagnostic

We go beyond the status quo
to get a full and clear picture of
your overall health.

Finding the
Root Cause

By looking at environmental, lifestyle, and diagnostic factors we work to find the root cause.


Every person is different, and that is why our treatments and therapies are specific to your needs and diagnosis.


You Deserve to Utilize EVERY Available Tool for Your Healing

Common knowledge tells us to approach even minor health complications, like colds and flus, on multiple fronts: get lots of rest (support your immune system), drink lots of fluids (detox), eat some soup and take some vitamin C (ensure proper nutrition).

In these cases, it’s second nature for us to do everything in our power to restore health — so why should we settle for pigeon-holed treatment when health complications are even more serious? You deserve comprehensive, sustainable healing. Our functional medicine approach has helped countless patients from all walks of life find just that.

Unfortunately, the cause of cancer doesn’t have one simple answer. Often, it develops as the result of multiple factors compounding in a patient’s body and potentially the environment. In order to effectively treat this disease, personalized care that addresses potential causes and restores the body’s ability to heal itself and work alongside cancer treatment is key.

If you or a loved one is facing cancer, getting to the root of the problem IS possible — and you shouldn’t have to settle for anything less than the most comprehensive care available.
