Naturopathic care can support you anywhere throughout your cancer journey.  It can help you:

  • Assess your risk factors
  • Reduce risk of cancer or its recurrence
  • Better tolerate treatment and speed recovery
  • Reduce side effects of conventional therapies
  • Improve longevity and quality of life through a chronic diagnosis


Dr. Rachel tailors naturopathic protocols to your individual needs and abilities.  Her treatment recommendations may include: nutritional supplements, dietary and lifestyle modification, IV therapy, mistletoe therapy, and mental-emotional support.

Imagine having a plan for health; not just for disease

Dr. Rachel VandenBerg, ND offers integrative breast cancer care.  This means she works alongside your team of oncologists and other practitioners as a complement to the care they provide.  Carefully selected, well researched, natural therapies are used to help improve response and decrease adverse effects of conventional therapies. 


Beyond the acute stage, naturopathic care can help your body become an inhospitable environment for cancer cell growth.

Reducing Risk of Breast Cancer

The ability of cancer cells to survive or spread depends very much on the environment in which it exists.  For example, cancer cells tend to thrive where there is inflammation, insulin resistance, obesity, acidity, low levels of certain nutrients or high levels of others.  Some breast cancer grows more in the presence of certain hormones.  The functional approach to cancer risk reduction involves:


  • Individualized lab testing to determine which variables are relevant for you
  • Following patterns over time as biomarkers of health or predictors of disease
  • Using natural therapies to create an internal environment that is inhospitable to cancer
  • Developing a personalized breast cancer risk reduction plan

As part of the Naturopathic  breast cancer Health Program, you receive:

  • Treatment plans specific to you
