Cancer Care Support

Cancer Cells Half of all men and one-third of women in the United States will develop cancer in their lifetimes. It is the second leading cause of death behind heart disease in this country, afflicting millions. In the early part of the 20th century, a mere 10% of the population suffered from cancer. It’s clear that the following factors play a role in this modern day epidemic: stress and toxic overload in our environment and in our food. Because most cancers are undetectable early in their life cycle, it’s imperative to adopt a preventive approach to cancer, particularly for those people who have a genetic predisposition. Dr. Maura not only works with people currently diagnosed with cancer, but for those who seek to do everything they can to prevent it. Using nutrition, botanicals and nutraceuticals, Dr. Maura will work to build the body’s defenses, as well as work in tandem with oncologists to bolster efficacy of chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Naturopathic medicine has proven effective in lessening the side effects of cancer treatment such as insomnia, nausea and poor appetite. Dr. Maura will also work with patients after cancer treatments to rebuild weakened immune systems, as well as to detoxify the body. Dr. Maura seeks to support the fight against cancer but treating the body with love, nurturing and support. If you or someone you know would like to speak directly with Dr. Maura about natural cancer support, don’t hesitate to contact her.
