Allow for us to strengthen, and support you with proven, effective complementary, natural medicine

Whether chemotherapy, surgery, or radiation, cancer treatments can be miraculous, but are obviously hard on the body. Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine are now widely recognized and confirmed by most major hospitals as invaluable conjunctive therapy while going through conventional treatment, not only to enhance its benefits, but also to mitigate its frequently challenging side effects. At David Foster Acupuncture we take oncology support very seriously, and incorporate clinically studied nutritional practices to ensure our patients come out the other end as strong and healthy as possible.

How We Can Support You While Battling Cancer

Core Factors Assessment - We need to know your diagnosis and stage, as well as your schedule of treatment in addition to familiarizing ourselves with your medical history and individual pattern.

Simple Plan of Attack - Supportive care can be pretty straightforward. We'll determine a clear, concise treatment plan that will preferably include visits within the same 24-hours as infusions.

Supportive Acupuncture - We use proven acupuncture techniques with the intention of maximizing the efficacy of your oncologist's treatment while mitigating potential short and long-term side effects.

Targeted Internal Medicine - Herbal medicine and specific fasting techniques have been shown to increase the efficacy of chemotherapy treatments. However, we do not recommend trying this without consulting an experienced health care provider such as ourselves.  

Ensure Lasting Results - Once having completed your treatments, we'll reduce the frequency of visits and gradually shift to the intention of preventive medicine.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does it hurt?

Acupuncture needles are the thinnest, most gentle needles in the world. Upon insertion you will most likely feel nothing, after which you may or may not feel a slight pressure point or nerve sensation to initiate the body's natural anti-inflammatory mechanism.

Have you treated this before?

Of course. Every case is different, so there is never any guarantee of results, but this area is one of our specialties in which we've seen consistent improvement as well as full resolutions from consistent acupuncture. 

Will I be on a lot of supplements forever?
What are the needles doing?

When it comes to cancer treatment, acupuncture excels at protecting our immune systems and microbiomes from the short and long term side effects of conventional treatment. 

How long should I come for?

It is ideal to come throughout the course of your treatment plus 1-3 months, depending of course on how you're feeling at its closure. Best times for acupuncture are within 24-hours of treatments such as infusions. 

No. With herbal medicine we try to use the bare minimum to elicit maximum results and do not expect or desire for patients to be reliant on them in perpetuity. The purpose of our supplements is to help reduce inflammation and or regulate neurology to the point that the body no longer needs them.

Are these treatments safe?

Definitely. Acupuncture is considered to be one of the safest modalities in existence, with at worst the very occasional, mild soreness or bruise at the site of a point. As for herbal medicine, although it is BASED ON an ancient Chinese pharmacopeia, the products we actually USE & PRESCRIBE are harvested here in the U.S., mostly in California, Oregon, or upstate New York
