OWM Integrative Wellness supports patients that are in early stages of diagnosis and those that are currently undergoing targeted chemo and radiation therapy.
Our mission is to improve an individual’s resilience, improve or restore mind-body wellness and offer natural targeted therapeutics to weaken cancer cells.

Read below to see how our program’s comprehensive holistic approach complements traditional cancer interventions to improve a person’s quality of life and prognosis.
Integrative Cancer Therapy and Support is designed to treat multiple aspects of cancer care, including:
Treatment plans are both extensive and comprehensive. The programs last a minimum of six weeks and often longer.
Step into a spa-like setting for our comprehensive support of your cancer journey
Often by the time the person is first diagnosed with cancer, they are already nutritionally depleted and are in a weakened state. Essential amino acids, vitamins and nutrients are combined to help replete and bolster the body. Ingredients include: vitamin C, vitamin B, magnesium, zinc, glycine, taurine, proline, glutathione, and vitamin B12. IV Antioxidants such as Alpha Lipoic Acid and Glutathione are administered to reduce inflammation and improve normal cells' ability to fight off chemotherapeutic oxidative stress. These treatments strengthen the individual allowing them to better tolerate the burden of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
Targeted hyperthermia has been used successfully in Europe and in select integrative cancer centers in US to reduce localized solid tumor's activity and size. As an example, this treatment can be used to shrink localized breast tumors to allow for a smaller surgical resection.
Mistletoe from the Black Forest region contains two groups of compounds: 1.) Glycoproteins, Polypeptides, Flavonoids and Triterpenes that both promote tumor cell death and tumor growth inhibition and 2.) Lectins that promote immune reliance and metabolic vitality
High Dose Vitamin C is administered intravenously in a range of 25-100 grams. Due to its molecular similarity to a glucose molecule, it is injected into cancer cells that, unlike a normal cell, are unable to process the vitamin. This creates cancer cell weakening and the death of the cancer cell.
Cancer cells require an enormous supply of energy to allow them to grow and spread. This energy is derived from glucose. Ketogenic diet has been shown by Valter Longo to inhibit cancer growth and weaken cancer cells.
Our team educates our clients on various stress reduction techniques to include meditation and breath work. Our Brain Spa service incorporates calming intravenous infusions, virtual guided-meditation and lymphatic drainage compression leg sleeves.
Cancer diagnosis carries a heavy mental burden creating a variety of mood disorders to include depression, anxiety and PTSD. IV Ketamine has been shown to reduce these symptoms and improve coping skills. All IV Ketamine treatments are combined with ketamine assisted psychotherapy.
Naturopathic doctor, Dr. Kim Howes has extensive clinical experience in supporting clients with cancer. She utilizes botanical and herbal medicines to help with inflammation reduction, improvement of detoxification pathways, lymphatic drainage, immune support and more.
Ozone therapy has been shown to improve cellular antioxidant strength, oxygenation and energy production. As an oxidative therapy, there is also some evidence that it can contribute to inhibiting cancer growth and metabolic activity.
There is clinical evidence that hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) can both enhance efficacy of conventional cancer therapy and reduce its side effect burden.
