After being diagnosed with cancer and presented with the options of chemotherapy, surgery, or radiation, people often ask: “what else can I do?”
Inspired by the tragic loss of her mother to terminal cancer at a young age, Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Meighan Valero has since devoted her life to finding the answers to this critical question. In this talk Dr. Valero explores the world of Adjunctive Cancer Care and encourages us to shift our perspectives when all hope is seemingly lost. As the founder and Clinical Director of Valero Wellness she believes in an integrative and evidence-based approach to supporting patients with cancer throughout conventional therapy.
Her passion lies in developing individualized treatment protocols for those who wish to prevent cancer, those living with cancer, and those with a desire to learn the tools and necessary lifestyle changes to prevent a recurrence of a previously treated cancer. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
