Reading Jazzy and other women's experiences with Oncologic Naturopaths, this sounds like a wonderful way to go. I'm truly frustrated with haivng my body treated as "parts" rather than a provider working with the my body as a whole.
I'm hoping others can help with suggestions/referrals/advice.
Unfortunately North Carolina does not have a procedure to license Naturopaths. I looked at the website for the NC Naturopath Assn, and checked the websites of the 29 members listed. One ND mentions cancer as a condition that she treats. This ND is in Charlotte, 3 hours away. Still, I would be willing to go there if she knows her stuff. What questions should I ask? (What is your training and experience with cancer? How many patients? Type of tests and treatments?)
There is one ND in NC listed as a member of the Naturopathic Oncological Assn. But members don't have to have any specialized experience, just an interest. And this ND in Carrboro (closer to where I live) does not mention cancer on her website.
I have family in Chicago, Atlanta, and Washington, DC that I could stay with if I need to travel to be seen.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
