Natural therapy is becoming a popular alternative to conventional Western medicinal practises. In natural therapy, the focus for resolving health concerns is on the root cause of the illness itself, rather than the symptoms of the illness.
As such, quite a portion of the population around the world has grown interested in the potential of natural therapy and among such interest is the rise of a few famous natural therapy and health practitioners. In this blog, we’ll introduce you to the world’s famous natural therapists.
Dr. Lise Alschuler, ND
A naturopath who is recognised internationally as an expert in integrative oncology and cancer prevention, Dr. Lise Alschuler had her natural therapy beginnings when she began studying naturopathic medicine at Bastyr University in 1994.
When diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008, Dr. Alschuler sought a natural therapy approach and successfully maintained specific dietary requirements as well as made effective lifestyle changes to put her on her path to recovery. After ridding her body of breast cancer through natural therapy, Dr. Alschuler has since dedicated her time and expertise into developing integrative oncology as well as general integrative and natural medicine for future generations.
