Optimizing YOUR Physiology
for a BRIGHTER FUTURE
Personalized care. Effective treatments. Proven results
Hi, I'm Dr Megan Bernard, ND
I believe that being diagnosed with cancer doesn't have to mean months of harsh treatments between naps on the couch. I will work with you - the parent, grandparent, co-worker, friend - to maximize the efficacy of your treatment, to increase your number of "good days" (more like great days!) and to maintain and improve your health post-diagnosis. We will work together to create an evidence-based and personalized plan that fits your lifestyle and health goals.
If you have a precancerous condition, a previous cancer diagnosis, or a strong family history of cancer, we will work together on a preventative and individualized strategy that optimizes your potential for staying cancer-free.
It should not be you against the world. As a team, we will make tackling cancer more manageable and comfortable.
Mixing Science & Tradition
Many plants that were used traditionally to fight flus, heal wounds, stop nausea, improve sleep, and boost energy and immunity are now being backed by modern scientific research. Although easily accessible over-the-counter, don't take the risk of wasting your money on poor quality or inappropriate plant medicines and be informed of potential interactions with your current medications.
Fuel the Body
The information commonly available regarding food and diets is confusing and overwhelming. Just thinking about the confusion surrounding coconut oil gives me a headache! Working with me, you will learn to fuel your body appropriately for your condition, combating fatigue, and healing. Learn how to make a meal plan that works with your schedule, budget, and specific health issue.
Traditional Chinese Medicine
Acupuncture is strongly supported by scientific and clinical evidence outlining its benefits for many conditions, such as pain, hot flashes, nausea, and low energy. In addition, patients claim to feel relaxed and renewed after each acupuncture session. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine are always based on your individual needs and personal health goals.
EDUCATION & PREVENTION
Calm the Confusion
Are you not sure that you got the best treatment advice or are you wondering about other options? Are you finished treatment and afraid of a cancer recurrence?Did your blood work come back normal, but you still don't feel well? Or are you interested in preventing a condition that you're pre-disposed to or that may run in your family? Whether you're looking for a second opinion, clarification, or hoping to prevent getting ill, I have the training to help you.
INTRAVENOUS THERAPY & INJECTIONS
Vitamins, Minerals, & Plants
Used as a part of the conventional treatment of some cancers in Germany, Mistletoe injections into subcutaneous tissues (the same as insulin) has been shown to improve quality of life and lengthen lifespan in numerous human scientific studies. I'll show you how to do injections at home. In addition, Intravenous Vitamin C has been gaining popularity in the world of naturopathic oncology for its similar results. Glutathione and vitamin D injections are also available.
LAB TESTS, SCREENING, & BLOODWORK
Optimize Your Levels
Vitamins D and B12 and hormone panels are among the more common blood tests performed by the clinic. Low levels of vitamin D during cancer treatment have been connected to poorer outcomes and are thought to be a contributing factor to certain cancer occurrences. Another common test is a comprehensive stool analysis that determines bacterial growth, inflammation, and food sensitivities. Furthermore, cancer stem cell tests and cancer-specific markers are available.
