I have received 3 calls in the last month from people who are interested in my perspective about cancer. The short answer is, acupuncture and chinese medicine treat the person, not the disease. What about functional medicine? Same thing. I work to identify the dysfunction in your system then get you as strong and balanced as possible. I work in conjunction with other therapies, both western and alternative to give you the best possible support as you move through this process.
A blood marker that has recently come to my attention is CEA. This test is limited in scope, but it may be worth talking to your doctor about it and how it applies to your specific case.
Our Santa Rosa Acupuncture Clinic is now offering functional medicine testing to look for underlying imbalances in the digestive system, detoxification system, immune function and hormone metabolism.
