A naturopathic physician, Dr. Suhaila provides recommendations for herbal medicine, vitamins, minerals, homeopathics and other natural therapies that help patients experience a better quality of life as they undergo cancer treatment.
“I use evidence-based naturopathic medicine to decrease the side effects of conventional cancer therapies and optimize the immune system. In cancer, patients face a tough fight. By easing the burden of that fight, naturopathic medicine helps them to carry on,” says Dr. Suhaila.
