ABOUT THE PRACTICE:

At Anatara Medicine we offer a comprehensive, individualized approach to cancer care support based on your needs and desires. As a recognized leader in disease prevention, detoxification, and optimizing cellular health, we continue to pioneer new approaches to cancer prevention and supportive care. We focus on supporting your whole body, with cutting edge laboratory testing, micronutrient analysis, nutritional recommendations, intravenous (IV) therapies, such as high-dose Vitamin C, Poly MVA, IPT, oxidation therapy, and acupuncture, detoxification, botanical medicine, craniosacral therapy, and Chinese Medicine.
Our primary role is to provide adjunctive supportive treatment to traditional oncological therapies such as chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. However, the team at Anatara welcomes patients who cannot tolerate conventional approaches or have already tried those approaches and want additional care.
A diagnosis of cancer can turn your world upside down. It can be difficult to know what steps to take next. At your initial visit to Anatara, we will provide a system-wide comprehensive consultation, discuss personalized supportive treatment options tailored to your specific physiology, as well as strategies to track progress and prognosis.
