Complementary Cancer care

 When it comes to cancer treatment, the best strategy is specifically customized to the individual, not a blanket approach. Lisl Meredith Huebner, Dipl.CH uses a combination of protocols gathered from her 15 years of experience in clinical practice as a Chinese and Western Herbalist. Amazing results come from blending the proper diet, supplements, herbs and lifestyle; the benefits of which are invaluable particularly when confronted with a powerful adversary like cancer.

Ms. Huebner stays up-to-date on current analysis and research in order to provide the best care for her patients. She frequently writes articles for various publications and offers her clients free detailed educational material to ensure that they understand their process completely. She takes all the time necessary during each patient’s appointment to answer all questions, provide a compassionate sounding board and to offer wisdom and guidance throughout the course of their healing.

Chinese or Western herbal formulas in convenient tablet, tincture, capsule or powdered form address both the underlying cause of the imbalance, as well as providing superior immune support and anti-cancer properties. All herbs come from reputable sources and are tested and safe.

Essential to diagnosis is the methods of pulse taking and the examination of the tongue.  Both are ancient techniques that give an abundance of valuable information to the practitioner regarding the conditions of the vital organs, the blood, the Qi and other key pieces of information necessary for a complete and accurate picture of the client’s state of health. Lisl also carefully observes the client’s facial tone and color, the condition of their nails and flesh, their ease of movement, the brightness of their eyes as well as listen to the tone of their voice, what they say and how they say it. She asks comprehensive questions surrounding not only the nature of the problem, but also regarding routine functions of the body such as diet, rest, exercise, menses, elimination and more.

Lisl understands the common tendency for nausea, reduced appetite and heightened sensitivity to flavors that accompanies chemotherapy, so she also offers her own homemade nutritious chicken and beef stock infused with healing herbs and mushrooms precisely chosen for each client. The ingredients that go into making these mild-tasting healing broths are all natural and organic; frequently purchased directly from local sustainable farms. The potent nourishment in these stocks makes them a perfect base for cooking grains or soups. Efficiently utilize even the smallest appetite to support the adage:

"Make your food your medicine,
and your medicine your food."

Juicing fresh, organic vegetables and fruit is another way for patients to maximize the sustenance they are able to receive and Lisl has vast experience with combining the best ingredients to meet her patients’ specific needs. Various combinations can be created to support digestion, reduce nausea, help to improve blood levels, and gently detoxify harsh chemotherapeutic agents; all of the juices are pleasant tasting and bursting with concentrated nutrition. By supporting the body’s systems to function at optimal levels, the immune system will have more energy available for repair and healing.
