As a naturopathic physician with board certification in naturopathic oncology and a cancer survivor myself, I know the power of natural therapies to bring health and healing to people diagnosed with cancer. Natural therapies are po werful weapons in the fight against cancer. The safe and effective integration of natural therapies with conventional cancer treatments to improve outcomes as well as the use of natural therapies to redu ce cancer risk brings health, healing and vitality to people diagnosed with cancer.

"While cancer rears its ugly head in far too many people’s lives, with some reluctance, I do grant it respect. For people affected by cancer, in spite of legitimate terror, this disease can stoke a sm oldering ember of vitality into a roaring fire of hope, love and courage. These are the gifts of cancer and, ultimately, forge our triumph over it." - Lise Alschuler, N.D., F.A.B.N.O.

‘Thank you Dr. Lise! I don't know what I'd do without your help and advice!!! I feel incredible! I was amazed at how great I felt even going through chemotherapy, and my oncologist was impressed that my blood counts were always high enough to keep going with treatments.’
- Kathi, 2 time breast cancer survivor
