Cancer Care

Whole-body approach. Integrative model. Supporting quality of life.

Dr. Moore works with patients to reduce side effects from their conventional care plan to both support quality of life and decrease treatment interruptions due to side effects. Beyond managing side effects and supporting quality of life, focus of care may include how cancer has manifested in a patient’s life and what can be done to shift the body away from a cancer process and aid in the fight against cancer.

  • Taking the overwhelm out of a new diagnosis

  • Reducing conventional therapy side effects

  • Personalized nutrition

  • Immune support

  • Metabolic support (weight loss or gain).

  • Sleep and stress management

  • Maximizing health after cancer treatment

  • Recurrence risk reduction

The compatibility between natural therapies, conventional treatment, personal medications, health issues and past medical history is taken into account. The result is a safe and individualized treatment plan that is both evidence-guided and addresses the unique goals of each patient.

Depending on your individual medical needs, personal health goals and comfort level, treatments may include: nutrition, lifestyle, environmental medicine, botanical medicine, injection or IV therapy, acupuncture, cold laser therapy or other approaches.
