Friend asking if I know of recommended alternative cancer doctors in Colorado. Anyone?

Via on Jul 20, 2011

The below started as a facebook conversation. As you’ll see, it became helpful and was suggested that I share it more widely. So, may it be of some benefit:

Waylon Lewis ‎”Her cancer is in her lungs & has spread to the brain …Any doctors you feel could help her through this & make it more “livable” …She won’t do radiation or chemo…does not want to be miserable or sick for what time she has left. I suggested IVC which has had some success but I don’t know anyone in the CO area. I know it won’t cure her but maybe make her more comfortable and prolong her life in a positive way.”

#

Emily: would she possibly be willing to go to CA for treatment? I was talking to my friend recently, and he is friends with a Doctor who apparently has cured cancer before, (cure.) and most likely, I am assuming he would be quite expensive. But… if she were willing to step out of state lines, I could certainly get more information about the man.

Rachel: Fran Mason at NatureMed in South Boulder.

Lisa S: jeremy geffen MD

#

Waylon Lewis Thanks, Lisa, I’ve emailed Jeremy straightaway–I interviewed him years ago, good to see him recently at Hanuman.

Emily, I dunno…I’ll ask, with thanks.

#

Chuck S: Gary Klepper in Paonia, CO. He’s on Facebook.

#

Maria D: cannibis oil…..i know nothing but keep hearing it works. prayers to your friend!

#

Tara: Jacob Schor, ND, Denver Naturopathic Clinic

#

Roni: Barbara Mahler, the best Oncologist Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbalist.

#

Audre S: Waylon, Wolff Becker, with Chataqua Health in the Steelyards in Boulder, helped a friend of mine overcome breast cancer. He is a naturopath and accupunturist and works with a phenomenal team of alternative health care practitioners.

#

Vic S: The best place I know of is the Gerson Clinic. They have a very long track record going back to the 1940s or so. They are in California and Mexico. Locally, I would recommend Charley Cropley, ND and Dr. Gao Yu Li in Lafayette.

#

Sundara B: Talk with Dr. Jeremy Geffen.

#

Waylon Lewis Thanks, Sundara! Already gave the friend Dr. G’s email.

#

Vic S: Only in Boulder! It’s great to see so many people with so many resources.

#

Kim R: hey Waylon, I so highly recommend Dr. Daniel Terres, in Crestone I’ve been seeing him for years now. www.creativehealthcenter.c​om

#

Deborah K: Gerson Institute is top on my list. Wolff Becker has also worked with a friend of mine with Brain cancer. I have experienced brest cancer and can recommend a Tibetan doctor. Call for info 720 982-3733.

I personally chose not to use Chemo or radiation and was successful.

#

Erin K: Waylon – with seemingly more and more dear friends and family members struggling through the same cancer maze, I think it would be so insightful if you could somehow turn all of this amazing feedback into a resourceful and uplifting Elephant article. Also, like Deborah, I have heard wonderful things about the Gerson Institute.

#

Pippa S: Dr. Shelese Pratt, Niwot, she’s incroixable…and Carrie Ballas is the most amazing nurse practitioner here in Boulder; often, seeking holistic nurse care is overlooked. She’s the next best thing to doctor and has an incredible nurturing gift…

Kir B: Dr Steve Parcell, Nature Med
