“The opportunity to be part of a multidisciplinary team with such a high standard of excellence is something I knew I wanted to be part of,” says Jessica Moore, ND, Naturopathic Oncology Resident at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA). “The resources and support offered to patients at CTCA are wonderful," she adds.
Originally from Calgary in Alberta, Canada, Moore earned a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology at the University of Calgary in 2007. She earned a doctorate degree in naturopathic medicine from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona in 2013.
As part of her naturopathic medicine training, Moore completed clinical rotations in general medicine, women’s medicine, environmental medicine, pain management, oncology, homeopathic medicine, botanical medicine and several other areas. She also served as a volunteer student physician on several occasions, providing naturopathic care to impoverished communities in Mexico.
Moore also participated in research on chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) at the University of Calgary and has published several reviews on naturopathic therapies and approaches. More recently, Moore has been involved in research studies investigating the immunomodulatory effects of specific botanical medicines, including astraglaus membranaceous.
A licensed naturopathic medicine provider by the State of Arizona, Moore is a member of the Oncology Association of Naturopathic Physicians, the American Academy of Naturopathic Physicians, and the Oklahoma Association of Naturopathic Physicians.
Moore’s passion and dedication for cancer care led her to join the CTCA team in 2013. In her role as a Naturopathic Oncology Provider, Moore works closely with patients to address concerns and offer natural therapies to help restore and maintain balance during cancer treatment.
Her goal is to help alleviate the side effects of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery, prevent cancer recurrence, and address underlying causes of illness. Fatigue, gastrointestinal disturbances, skin issues, depression, anxiety, headaches, sleep disturbances and neuropathy are among the most common concerns for which patients seek naturopathic care at CTCA.
Moore strives to address patients’ needs on an individualized basis. “A patient’s medical care should be as unique as the person receiving the care,” she says. “I am passionate about helping individuals along their health journey, to address their personal health goals, and find safe natural treatments for their whole person.”
