Crystal’s Letter

Dear LotusRain family,

Good news is worthy of sharing, so we are!

Crystal Carothers and Friend

I’m writing to give you an update and tell you thank you for all your help. I first came to LotusRain after being diagnosed with a rare bone cancer, a large tumor was eating away the bone on my sacrum. I was in a lot of pain. I couldn’t sit on my bum, so the staff gave me a private room where I could take my infusions laying down on my stomach. I always appreciated this accommodation. My nurse Febe took great care of me and was always so amazing at finding a vein in my arm. I saw Dr. Reese every 3 months or so. Radiation has taken a huge toll on my body, but She helped me on so many levels. She recommended a cannabis nurse (Elizabeth)  who helped me with my pain. Dr. Reese also helped me get my hormones back into balance and she helped me with my digestive issues.  She gave me several supplements to take to help fight the cancer. She called to check up on me regularly.

3 years after my initial diagnosis, and despite never having had surgery to remove the tumor, my oncologist has declared “no evidence of disease” on my last report in July.

I am back to surfing, traveling internationally, cycling, hiking, doing all the things I could do before the diagnosis.

The LotusRain staff was a huge help in my recovery. Thank you so much!!! I am forever grateful.

Integrative Cancer Care at LotusRain

One of the fundamental integrative oncology treatments we provide our patients are nutriceuticals, designed specifically to minimize the side effects of chemotherapy. Many natural therapies synergestically enhance the effects of conventional treatment, thus allowing reduction of tumor growth to be achieved more quickly and with fewer side effects.

Naturopathic Oncology “is the application of the art and science of naturopathic medicine to the field of cancer care and treatment.”  Dr. Kristine Reese 

We encourage collaboration and open communication with oncologists and other conventional health professionals to coordinate care and treatment so that optimal effects of both natural and conventional modalities may be achieved.  If you would like to learn more please visit our Integrative Cancer Care section on our website, or click here to schedule an appointment.
