            I have spent 15 years as a naturopathic doctor, licensed acupuncturist and health writer. I have worked in a hospital setting for 10 years helping support cancer patients. I am very supportive of the Cancer Treatment Centers concept and approach. Many of my colleagues that I went to school with work for CTCA. I attended Bastyr University for both of my degrees. I like helping people find solutions to their health challenges. I dislike companies and individuals who do not understand the physiology of cancer and end up even with the best of intentions misleading the cancer patient into placing their faith into therapies or products that are not evidence-based.
