Oscar Sierra, L.Ac.

 

Oscar has a keen interest in integrative approaches to cancer treatment, and is one of the foremost oncology herbalists in the country. His devotion to his patients, and his relentless pursuit in identifying and addressing the underlying causes of disease, are just some of the reasons why his patients love him.

Oscar is one of few clinicians certified in the Eclectic Triphasic Medical System (ETMS). This approach, developed by Donald R. Yance, Jr., CN, MH, combines various healing modalities such as traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), Ayurvedic medicine, and Western medicine.

In our practice, Oscar guides patients on nutritional protocols, including food, supplements, and herbs. He is also passionate about addressing environmental health exposures, including identifying problematic exposures at home and at work, and introducing meaningful strategies to reduce or eliminate those exposures. In addition, Oscar utilizes acupuncture to address cancer-related symptoms, including pain and inflammation.

Oscar has a bachelor of science degree in nutrition studies from the University of Georgia, and also completed an intense four year acupuncture and Chinese medicine apprenticeship. He is nationally board certified in acupuncture by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and is also a diplomate in oriental medicine.
