As a naturopathic doctor who is board certified in naturopathic oncology, I work with chronic disease and provide integrative cancer care. I also use acupuncture extensively in my practice. Going through cancer treatment is extremely stressful for patients and their families. By providing complementary oncology care, I love that we can educate, improve a quality of life, and help recovery of so many people.
I deeply resonated with the of using the healing power of nature and food as medicine to facilitate self-healing and wellness. This belief is also prevalent in my own Southern Black-American roots and traditions, because for generations, my family had to depend on growing our own food, using herbs from the backyard/forest as our medicine, and passing along home remedies to manage our health.
