DR. LUCINDA MESSER, N.D. graduated from Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington with her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine in 1994. She spent much of her Clinical Internship with chronically ill patients, particularly those with HIV. She earned her board certification in Family Medicine in 1996 while fulfilling a Residency Program at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Scottsdale, Arizona. She has also earned her Diplomate in Antiaging Medicine through the American Academy of Antiaging and Restorative Medicine in Chicago, Illinois.
In 2005, she began researching the effects of sunshine (Vitamin D) and health, and she noticed (personally) as a Clinician, that in general, there seemed to be less chronic illness in the Southwest vs. the Northwest. This led to her writing her book on Vitamin D and its effect on chronic illness, particularly cancer. Her book Powerful Medicine, Vitamin D, Shedding Light On A Worldwide Health Crisis.
The research rekindled her passion for helping patients with chronic illness. She decided in 2007 to earn her Fellowship in Integrative Cancer Therapies. She also trained with the Gerson Institute to become a Certified Gerson Practitioner.
With all the eclectic training and research she has acquired, she has integrated this knowledge into her practice in the Seattle Area. She practices Integrative Oncology with a Naturopathic twist. She combines cutting edge therapies with time-tested remedies to help the body heal from cancers and other chronic illness. She has recently developed a cancer coaching program to help reach the masses of patients that would otherwise not be helped. With blood and genetic tests, she has been able to create highly individualized diets, nutrient therapies and other targeted treatments for cancer patients.
