Amber Wellness Group provides a model of integrative cancer care that is inspired by patient centered care. This means that when you are diagnosed with cancer, the team of professionals you choose, will put you in the center of your treatment. Many people when diagnosed with cancer, are taken through a regimen of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, followed by more medications, leaving the patient with minimal say or control. We want you to feel empowered and give you the resources to provide you with information and treatment options. Our goal is to help you fully understand your diagnosis, explain your cancer physiology, and support you staying healthy through your cancer treatment.
Dr. Lisa Dickinson is a specialist in breast, uterine, cervical and ovarian cancer. She provides researched and proven naturopathic treatment options to support maximal overall health, fight the cancer process, and help you prevent and / or reduce side effects of chemotherapy and radiation.
It is so important to have a naturopathic physician who has a breadth of understanding and who is knowledgeable when it comes to your cancer diagnosis. It is also important to work with a provider who can safely integrate naturopathic modalities into your conventional treatment plan. You’re best served with a provider who understands drug interactions with herbs and other supplements, so that negative interactions with your specific chemotherapy or radiation therapy are avoided. Our goal is to help you feel your best, by keeping your healthy cells healthy and supported while you are trying to kill off the invasive cancer cells.
Integrative Naturopathic Oncology support includes many modalities. Each person’s cancer acts differently, therefore Dr. Lisa will suggest and inform you of the most appropriate choices for you. She will work with you to integrate these decisions into your comprehensive cancer treatment plan.

Adhesions, collagen thinning, and radiation can make the vaginal tissues feel like a painful dry desert. We are here to tell you, that you can and you deserve to have pain free and pleasurable sex again.
