Deborah Beaumont is an APRN specializing in women’s health, breast cancer, and breast implant illness. She returns to the show to discuss the long-term, chronic health problems that people diagnosed with cancer have to deal with, how functional medicine can help, and strategies for limiting your exposure to things that may cause cancer.
Deborah was trained in and practiced in the traditional medical world for 35 years… before experiencing an unusual complication with cancer treatment that left her paralyzed in her left leg for two-and-a-half years.
During that time, Deborah grew tired of the compartmentalized nature of traditional medical care and she was drawn to the holistic approach of Integrative Medicine.
Later in life, another bout with cancer and more significant complications only solidified Deborah’s passion for functional medicine.
Cancer is a Chronic Problem
Cancer isn’t an acute illness – it’s a chronic illness.
It will affect your entire life for a long period of time, and there are often a variety of treatment options available. On top of that, there are health problems associated with the actual treatment options, such as chemotherapy.
Functional medicine practitioners can help those diagnosed weigh their options, make a plan that address their holistic health and mental well-being, and prepare for the long-term journey.
