LET US HELP!
We understand that a cancer diagnosis is overwhelming to most people and thus we are here to guide you through the various twists and turns of your healing journey with the clarity of healing knowledge and experience. We also work to help patients PREVENT this diagnosis by assessing various risk factors and addressing them stop this dreaded disease in its tracks, even before a diagnosis, when it is far easier and less of a crisis. As they say, the best cure is prevention.
The Metabolic Approach
Our clinic is set up with doctors working specifically with a metabolic approach to cancer, prepared to support you and your family to navigate the care system and create a lifestyle that can slow and reverse your terminal disease.
We strongly advise that all patients read The Metabolic Approach to Cancer, by our esteemed colleague, Dr. Nasha Winters and her co-author, keto-smart nutritionist Jess Higgins-Kelley. We recommend this book be your motivator and scientific backdrop, since we work closely with this method to give our patients options that are able to restore health. Click here to read Dr. Winters’ introductory article on the metabolic approach to cancer to give you a preliminary understanding of how and why this approach would be utilized in your care.
How it Works
An initial 150 minute consultation delves into your life story to get a better understanding of you and your whole clinical picture. We discuss your specific cancer and how your past traumas, medical treatments, genetics/epigenetics, toxic exposures and diet have all contributed to growing a solid tumor or multiplying countless aimless blood cells, as in the case of leukemias and lymphomas. We often refer to these various influences as they culminate in one person as the “terrain.” The terrain is your soil that grew the cancer. There is no successful cancer therapy that does not include addressing a broken terrain.
A second, 45-minute “Onboarding Appointment” is also scheduled with all new cancer patients to help you understand the what, why’s and how-to’s of Dr. Erin’s suggestions.
“A Roadmap to Health”
We formulate a “Roadmap to Health” with specific and critical life-saving instructions to guide you and your family on a road to recovery. On your roadmap, you will find dietary suggestions, lifestyle changes, homework and precise supplement and homeopathic suggestions. When navigating the world of cancer alone, we find individuals generally choose too many supplements, or ones that are often ineffective or, at worst, contaminated with the actual toxicants that contribute to the cancer growth. We have taken the guesswork out of it and provide only the most effective and highest quality natural medicines, which have been tried and tested in clinical settings. Simply, we use what works.
We also monitor your progress closely with frequent bloodwork to assess the effectiveness of our therapies and thus consistently and repeatedly update the comprehensive program to advise and guide you on prioritizing the steps along the way.
Dr. Nasha Winters
Dr. Nasha was diagnosed with Cervical cancer twice at age 16 and then Stage IV Ovarian Cancer at 19. Conventional medicine had given her a very short time to live and no options for treatment. Instead of accepting this diagnosis and living out her final months, she took her health into her own hands. Now, nearly 30 years later, she is training other physicians and consulting with them on their cancer cases, using her metabolic and terrain-centered approach. She is one of the foremost experts in the field of naturopathic oncology.
Our patients are given the opportunity to request a physician-to-physician consultation between Dr. Erin and Dr. Nasha on their behalf. Prior to the consult, Dr. Nasha thoroughly reviews the case history, pathology report and recent labs so that during this doctor-to-doctor conversation, she can advise on the critical information to increase chances of long-term survival, prevention of recurrences down the road and an improved quality of life.

Re-gain Your Voice, You Do Have a Choice
Remember that Cancer is not a “battle” and you are not a battlefield; cancer is a derangement of your normal functioning on nearly every level imaginable. From the vantage point of understanding how you got cancer, a terminal diagnosis can be reinterpreted as a GIFT to help you have a better life than you did before diagnosis.
Allow our naturopathic physicians to assist you
Allow our team to prioritize your needs. Being able to determine what works and what doesn’t, what’s necessary and what isn’t, can take precious time that cannot be wasted. There is an enormous amount of knowledge required in order to make smart, life-saving decisions regarding your healing journey. Our doctors will help you determine which therapies and treatments will be most effective for your very specific and unique case. Every patients’ cancer is a combination of unique issues. Not all cancers have the same cause. Let us help you understand they why and the how this is YOU- and what you can do about it.
We work with ALL stages of cancer, even terminal cases. We follow the most up-to-date, well documented naturopathic and metabolic-based protocols that either complement your conventional care or lead you out of a program that is failing you as your disease continues to progress.
Dr. Erin has exclusive access to Dr. Nasha Winters, being one of a select few chosen to participate in her inaugural mentorship program starting in January 2020.
Dr. Erin was vetted over her direct consults and communication with Dr. Nasha during the ongoing care discussions regarding the dozens of patients for whom she has consulted Dr. Nasha over the last four years.
Dr. Nasha specifically chose the few doctors that she felt were prepared and capable of managing the cases regarding the multifactorial nature of cancer. What is critical here is clinical thinking, the capacity and ability to truly guide and adjust patient care as needed, versus following standard protocols. She will be supporting our care and oversight in guiding you as a patient of Options.
We offer a unique capacity of access, with the ability to ask specific questions to Dr Nasha as needed. In times of urgency, this is a very important and often is a critical piece of support that our clinic provides.
We hope that you will help us guide you through this tumultuous time.
