Integrative Medicine Physician in Scottsdale, Arizona
I am not embarrassed but rather grateful beyond words to say I am a Cancer Survivor! Seems ironic but I am just like anyone where cancer seems to afflict without discrimination at increasingly alarming rates. I can say now that I know what it is like to go through the experience of having cancer: the fears, doubts, questions, and suffering that accompanies one, their family, and friends, who has to decide what treatments to commit to whether conventional, alternative or integrative. I have chosen the integrative approach. I believe I am cured and will do everything in my power to make sure it stays that way forever.
I am a fighter against cancer and will NEVER give up on my patients. Loma Linda University Medical School, post-graduate training in Internal Medicine, and Nuclear Medicine(PET scans, nuclear cardiology, etc) has helped give me an understanding from the diagnostic perspective.
My transition into cancer care was never intended but in retrospect, the seemingly "random" opportunity presented itself which I believe was a Godsend to allow me to find my true purpose in my healthcare career. I have experience in treating cancer patients for over 14 years in the integrative setting during which time my learning curve has been exponential and still continuing.
I am open-minded to all treatments and not against western conventional approaches. I support what treatments patients choose to pursue which runs the unlimited gamut of proposed "cures" but also like to educate patients on additional therapeutic approaches which I may support.
My niche now is to support patients who need US aftercare after receiving treatments from out of country centers, with close collaboration with their treating physicians, and also for patients who need care in the US who may not have established and continuous care with an oncologist
What are your cancer treatment statistics/prognosis?
Answer: Too many variables to give an answer. The Bottom Line: it depends on finding the treatment(s) that work. If you respond well your prognosis is good/better/best. Finding that the most effective treatment is the priceless question to not only see improvement but also a potential for remission or cure. It should be noted that in reality patients come and seek help because their cancer is progressing rapidly and standard treatments have failed or stopped working, no other options are available except hospice or for patients who defer standard of care.
Variables that can determine your clinical outcome include but are not limited to:
- Your general health status and current condition: clinical trials can give fairly reliable statistics but that is because they are in a controlled setting and enroll those who are relatively healthy.
- Comorbid conditions that can limit treatment response such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, liver, and renal dysfunction, insomnia hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, stroke, emphysema, lifestyle risk factors, infections, anemia, cachexia or severe malnutrition, edema(ascites, pleural effusions, organ dysfunction, bleeding, hypoxia, electrolyte imbalances, uncontrolled inflammation, etc. These "fires" have to be addressed timely and effectively and put out or they will turn into firestorms. Even if cancer treatments work, addressing these conditions affects the overall outcomes.
- I will be honest: I cannot guarantee a cure but I tell patients that as long as you are improving you are heading towards a cure. Sometimes it takes persistence in being open to finding other ways to treat, to find the treatment that WORKS! (refer to #1 above re: prognosis) . Don't give up!
Brio-Medical uses an integrative approach to the treatment of cancer, Lyme Disease, anti-aging, and other chronic illnesses. Our integrative treatment protocols combine the best of conventional and alternative modalities based on the recovery of the biological performance of each patient. We take a holistic approach to healing, treating the body, mind, and spirit, to treat each patient on an individual level with our personalized medical protocols.
Much attention in recent years has focused on dietary considerations in chronic disease – yet, just as there I no one-treatment fits all therapeutic approach to cancer or Lyme Disease, neither is there one diet fits all. We must be attentive to individuality in the diet as we are to individuality in therapy.
Why Alternative Cancer Treatment?
Our treatment program is designed to stimulate your immune system to recognize and destroy cancer cells in combination with natural, non-invasive, effective therapies that will take advantage of cancer cells' weaknesses.
Brio Medical's natural treatment approach offers patients a holistic way to heal the mind, body, and spirit, using proven non-toxic therapies to target cancer cells while providing essential immune system support. Whether you are searching for a natural cancer treatments plan, a way to rebuild your body after chemotherapy or radiation, an adjunct to traditional natural cancer treatments, or are looking to obtain optimal health to help prevent cancer, Brio Medical has an Intensive Integrative Oncology that will treat cancer naturally with non-toxic therapies.
Our alternative or integrative cancer therapies are much safer than traditional treatments such as full-dose chemotherapy and radiation because the body is exposed to much less toxicity. Licensed physicians who hold themselves to the highest medical and ethical standards perform all treatments, including the intersection of conventional and alternative cancer treatments such as those we offer at Brio Medical.
A majority of the cancer patients that Brio Medical treats respond well to our therapies, and report improvements in their prognosis. This including a variety of cancer patients who have all types and stages of cancer that we treat, as well as patients who have already undergone conventional oncology treatments such as surgery, radiation, and/or chemotherapy.
Dependent on the state of the patient's health when they arrive at the clinic, the effectiveness can vary greatly, particularly based on how suppressed the patient's immune system may be from toxic treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation.
With decades of experience treating breast, prostate, lung, pancreatic, and all other types of cancers in all stages we can create a personalized treatment program based on clinical testing and your medical history. You can count on the expertise of our specialists in cancer at Brio-Medical
After signing up to speak with a patient care coordinator, you will schedule a consultation with a medical doctor to discuss the patient's medical history and the personalized treatment programs that Brio-Medical offers to help the patient reach their wellness goals.
After your initial consultation, the doctor will work to give you the relaxing healing experience and the personalized treatment you need in conjunction with the beautiful and peaceful desert and scenic views in Scottsdale, Arizona. All types of cancer can be treated with our multi-disciplinary approach to healing metastatic cancer.
In conventional oncology, the concept of making the body less toxic, improving diet and nutrition, and regulating the immune system while treating the malignancy is still widely regarded as an unessential aspect of oncology treatment protocols. The belief that medication alone can and should reverse disease and cure a patient without consideration of the body’s own defense and recovery systems still dominates the medical mentality of conventional oncologists throughout the world of Western Medicine.
In standard oncology, there is no treatment that is not deleterious to the immune system or the overall host defense of the patient. In our concept, the foundation of any form of therapy should be the restoration of the biological capabilities of the host with a specific emphasis on the immune system.
Given chemotherapy to a patient who recently underwent surgery will only worsen their appetite, strength, and well-being, reducing defense systems and the chances of a successful outcome. In standard radiotherapy programs, statistics show that the higher the dose of radiation, the higher the tumoral response.
However, the same statistics prove that higher doses do not necessarily mean longer survival. This means that we must strike a balance between how aggressively we attack the tumor and how much support we give the body or at least how much assault our biological systems can endure. A healthy body with an intact defense system does not develop cancer. So, the mere fact that cancer is present denotes a failure, mutation, or biological change important enough to trigger such a diagnosis.
If we continue to follow the concept that the elimination of the tumor mass brings cure, we will continue to see the recurrence of cancer – which is one of the consistent outcomes of conventional oncology.
The fact is that when a breast tumor, for example, is removed we could still be far from solving the problem. So, the lump is not the disease – and that should be an important conclusion. By lengthening and enhancing tumor control through human immune/defense systems while remaining completely free of side effects over long periods of use, this is the most nature-similar way of controlling malignant growths.
The backbone of the Brio Medical cancer treatment protocol is awakening the immune system and reprogramming it to fight naturally. We want to strengthen your immune system by detoxing your body of heavy metals with chelation therapy, replenishing vitamin and mineral deficiencies with nutritional IV therapy, and a variety of other treatments to help jumpstart your body's immune system.

I saw Dr. Kollin for cancer prevention. In 2014 I had pain on the left side which occasionally radiated to my left breast. Ultrasound showed nothing but fibrous breasts. The origin of the pain could never be pinpointed. She had me apply a lotion to my torso daily. After a few months, I began to have eruptions under the left breast and increased the lotion applications as instructed. The eruptions progressed, the pain on the left side increased. After 4 months the eruptions stopped and the skin healed. The pain on the left side is gone. Follow up u/s has shown that the breasts are no longer fibrous. Incidentally, they are no longer tender when menstruating. I am so thankful for dr. Kollin. She listened and supported me. She is truly caring.
