The term cancer comes from the Greek, karkinos, which translates as crab, and was first coined by Hippocrates in the 400 BC’s. He felt tumors appeared to have legs. And tumors do seem to have a life of their own. But cancer is human cells run amuck. These cells have forgotten how to behave as human cells should. When when mutations accumulate, and a breakdown in checkpoints during cell replication occurs, and our immune system is disabled in it’s ability to eliminate rogue cells, human cells  break the rules that they’re supposed to follow. Cancer results.

Seeing people with cancer was not something that I set out to do. But over the years, I have had many clients come with the disease who wanted alternative protocols to manage their symptoms and bodies while going through conventional treatments. This course is a cumulation of what I have learned and done.

  • This course will illustrate a Materia medica of plants that are appropriate for use with allopathic treatments.
  • We will layout strategies for using our Materia medica whether your client comes to you before, during or after treatment.
  • While I am not a big user of supplements, we will outline some supplements that are beneficial for use during treatment.
  • We will talk about general protocols for all, and protocols for specific types of cancer.
  • And lastly, how to use plants medicines in hospice care.
