My name is Dr Heather Paulson ND, FABNO.

I am a retired Board Certified Naturopathic Oncologist, one of a few in the country. For those who do not know what this is, it means I went through medical school like any other doctor and focused on naturopathic medicine. Naturopathic doctors choose to use herbs, vitamins, diet, and alternative health practices as our primary treatments, utilizing drugs only when necessary.

Bringing Natural Medicine to Cancer Care

As a Naturopathic Oncologist, I have specialized training in applying natural medicine to cancer care. I am also able to help you safely integrate natural therapies into other cancer treatment programs, such as chemotherapy and radiation.

I have been in the trenches known as cancer for over a decade and how we approach and treat cancer in America continues to change. My passion is to help people who have cancer find and choose the best treatment. I have been on both sides of cancer: having family members diagnosed and as a medical doctor. I am here to help you.

My training includes completing an oncology residency at Goshen General Hospital where I became board certified in naturopathic oncology. At Goshen General, I participated in helping thousands of people with cancer. My experience at the Goshen Center for Cancer care influenced the integrative and comprehensive nature of my own cancer center, The Paulson Center for Integrative Healing. After completing residency, I started teaching oncology and hematology at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine. This is also where I started writing the Textbook of Naturopathic and Integrative Oncology.

So how does one choose to become a doctor that focuses on cancer? The truth is that initially I dreamed of being a marine biologist.
