Western medicine acknowledges the benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine in managing the side effects of chemotherapy and other cancer treatments. But in her 30-plus years of practice, Dr. Wu has also witnessed TCM’s positive impact on cancer itself, and has had the privilege of seeing clients enter a new phase of life in which they are cancer-free.
Experiences with a wide range of clients—from young women diagnosed with HPV and facing cervical cancer to women and/or men with lung, breast, GI, or prostate cancer—has inspired Dr. Wu to make cancer care an area of emphasis within her practice. The power of TCM in treating cancer, she believes, lies in the recognition—increasingly reinforced by Western medicine—that cancer is not a single disease that manifests identically in each person it touches.
Following TCM principles of harmony and balance, Dr. Wu treats each client as an individual—assessing long-term constitutional patterns; treating symptoms of disharmony; adapting her approach as the body responds; integrating her treatments with Western protocols and partnering with Western physicians; customizing self-help recommendations and herbal remedies; coaching life changes. The result is an approach that reflects your body, your lifestyle, and your personal experience with cancer.
