Sue, Ann Arbor, MI
I am an American breast cancer patient who visited the Kelowna Naturopathic Clinic in 2007 after my initial diagnosis. I was seeking a holistic and sensible approach to my condition, realizing early-on that chemotherapy and radiation were not my first treatment choices. What I found in Kelowna was quite remarkable! In this peaceful and beautiful city, within this modern warm facility I was welcomed, respected and educated in ways to heal my whole self. Specific treatments recommended by Dr. Garrett Swetlikoff were effective and useful. Many of them, such as whole body hyperthermia, are not generally available in the U.S. I learned that research supports so many ideas that allow our immune systems to remain intact to work for us, to heal us. In my 6 year cancer adventure, I have encountered an amazing number of kind and brilliant people. Dr. Garrett and his wonderful staff are high up on that list and I am grateful for their dedication to healing.
